Just like the the new Nexus 9, the Nexus 6 is now an official product. With a 5.96″ screen, it’s the biggest Nexus phone to date and a big jump over the Nexus 5’s screen of 4.95″ screen.
The 5.96″ screen has a resolution of 2560×1440, making it a QHD screen. Powering this screen is a Snapdragon 850 processor at 2.7 GHz. The storage sizes for the Nexus 5 are 32 GB and 64 GB, so you should have more than enough space to download apps and media.
The rear camera is a 13 MP shooters, with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), so you should get a good shot even if you hands are shaky. The front-facing camera is an HD 2 MP sensor, which should suffice for selfies and video conferences.
Also like the Nexus 9, the 6 has front-facing speakers, so hearing media should be a lot better than it was on the Nexus 5. The colors are black and white, so you have some choice of color.
Unfortunately, with these top-tier specs, this is the most expensive Nexus phone since the Galaxy Nexus. It is $649 off-contract, and that is for the 32 GB model.
However, this is the first Nexus phone available on Verizon since the Galaxy Nexus as well. These are the carriers that the Nexus 6 will be on:
- U.S. Cellular
No word for the on-contract pricing yet, but with pre-orders starting late October, the prices should be revealed very soon. Will you be picking up this new Nexus phone either on or off-contract?
