For a long time now Google’s Nexus line has been something you can only really get from Google themselves. T-Mobile has sold the Nexus 4 and 5 without any modifications, but for an elevated price. Previous Nexus devices were carrier specific and were more expensive device, and while it looks like the Google Nexus 6 will be the most expensive Nexus device yet, there’s no official price from Google or AT&T yet. We’ve seen rumors of $650 unlocked and $50 on contract for AT&T, so let’s hope at least that contract price turns out to be true for AT&T subscribers. For now we’ll have to wait for the official numbers on when AT&T will have it and for what price, but check out AT&T’s official Nexus 6 page for more info when it becomes available.
For now though we’re looking at full availability of both the Cloud White and Midnight Blue flavors, sporting Android 5.0 Lollipop and all the other goodies. You’re going to be getting a 5.96-inch Quad-HD AMOLED display at 493 pixels-per-inch. The camera has been upped to 13 megapixels with Optical Image Stabilization and Dual-LED flash in the camera ring like the new 2014 Moto X. 4K video capture and tons of RAW shooting modes abound thanks to Android L’s new photography functionality, as it lets you adjust literally every single part of the picture for optimal photo capturing.
Qualcomm’s newest Snapdragon 805 chipset powers the phone and promises to deliver and fast and smooth experience even with the increased pixel count. Dual front-facing speakers are set to blow you away with super high sound quality, and the 3220mAh battery promises to last all day long. Speaking of the battery the phone charges super quickly and promises 6 hours of usage out of just a 15 minute charge. All this lines up to be the best Nexus phone Google has likely ever made, and by far one of the most capable devices on the market today.
