The amazing thing is that the device came from the United States, but the phones were still missing in the US. The device will cost around $578 or ₹35,000. Moreover, the maker of Nexus 6 (Shamu/Nexus X) is Motorola.
Phonearena also reported that Google is changing the name of the Nexus 6 handset in order to prevent possible copyright and trademark issues with the character in Philip K. Dick’s novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” in which the androids were named as Nexus-6.
According to the reports, the Nexus 6 will have…
- a larger screen display with a 2K (1440 x 2560) pixel resolution
- powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 805 CPU
- an Adreno 420 GPU to support high res images, videos and games.
- with 13MP rear camera and a 2.1MP front-facing camera
- along with pair of stereo speakers in the front.
Previous rumors stated that the upcoming Nexus smartphone will sport a 5.9 inch screen display with unknown pixel resolution and a fingerprint sensor.
Nexus 6 or Google Shamu’s release date is reported to happen on or before Oct, 31. Other reports claimed that the handset will arrive in November when other Google devices such as the Nexus 8 tablet and a new Google wearable or smartwatch will be released.
However, Google has not confirmed nor denied any of these rumors. The company is unusually quiet about the details of its devices. We will know more about Google’s roadmap in its event this month
