Google created the Nexus line with the release of the original Nexus One, followed by the Nexus S. But this line attracted attention with the release of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus that came with Ice Cream Sandwich.
After that, the Nexus series became very popular and the following phones, the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 got out of stock in the release date. After 12 months of the Nexus 5 release, Google announced its successor, the Nexus 6.
As the name says, the phone has a huge 5.9″ screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. Easier said, it is a QHD screen. Google really stepped up the game with the screen size, from 5″ on the Nexus 5 to 5.9″ on the 6. This means the new flagship device is a phablet and not just a smartphone.
We got used to seeing LG Nexus phones but this time, it is Motorola that comes with the new Google product. On the other hand, the Nexus 9 is manufactured by HTC. This is the first tablet from HTC in a long time.
If you are wondering what version of Android the phone is running, don’t worry, it is not KitKat. It is Android 5.0 Lollipop. And yes, Google finally confirmed that the name of Android L is going to be Lollipop.
As for processing power, the Nexus 6 has the Snapdragon 805 chipset with quad-core processor clocked at 2.7GHz and Adreno 420 GPU. It has 3 GB of RAM for ultimate multitasking.
The battery is huge at 3,220 mAh but that should be a must considering the huge 5.9″ display which will use a lot of juice. The Galaxy Note 4 has the same capacity but a smaller 5.7″ screen.
Motorola has taken a few notes from HTC and Sony and has implemented dual front-facing speakers which provide immersive stereo sound for the best audio quality while gaming and watching movies.
Google has done a great job in the camera department too. The Nexus 6 comes equipped with a 13 MP camera. f2.0 lens and OIS Optical Image Stabilization. Using advanced technology, the Nexus 6 is said to take great photos.

The Nexus 6 is going to be a great phone for sure and many people will buy it. The question is, is the bigger 5.9″ screen going to be a deal breaker for Nexus fans?
