Earlier today, Google officially announced the new Nexus 6 by Motorola, a 6-inch Android device that will be available for pre-order later this month, and will begin shipping to consumers in early November.
Key specs include:
- A 5.9-inch, quad HD AMOLED display with 1440 x 2560 resolution and 493 ppi
- Snapdragon 805 quad-core 2.65GHz processor
- 3,220mAh battery
- 13MP camera with OIS and dual LED flash
- 159.3 x 83 x 10.1 mm
- 184 grams (6.49 ounces)
- Corning Gorilla Glass 3
- Qi wireless charging support
- Water resistant
- 2MP front facing camera
- Nano SIM
- 32GB or 64GGB variants
- 4K video capture
- LTE bands (2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, 13, 17, 25, 26, 29, 41)
- Dual front-facing stereo speakers
It’s important to note that this will support Sprint Spark and T-Mobile LTE on 700MHz.
It will also support Motorola’s TurboCharge feature, which allows the device to charge for only 15 minutes and get 6 hours of use.
It will also be available on T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, and US Cellular, and will also be available for sale at Best Buy and the Google Play Store.
Carrier pricing seems to be $649 unsubsidized for the 32GB version, and $699 for the 64GB version – while it’s unclear whether or not Google will offer it for less through the Play Store, my best bet is that this time it won’t.[Google]
