It’s a big day in the Android world as Google is releasing several new devices, much to the pleasure of Android fans the world over. Arguably, the device most people are excited for is Google’s new phablet, the Google Nexus 6. Google officially released the specs for the Nexus 6 this morning and it looks like an impressive device indeed. It will feature a 5.96 inch QHD 2560 x 1440 AMOLED display, the top of the line Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor at 2.7 Ghz, 3 GB of RAM, a 13MP main camera and a 2MP front facing camera, a 3,220 mAh battery and, of course, will be running Android Lollipop which is the latest iteration of Google’s Android operating system that has historically been named after some pretty sweet desserts. Global release dates and pricing for the Nexus 6 have also been quickly rolling out this morning and, now, Canadian fans have been given an idea of when they can get it what kind of cash they’ll have to drop when they go to pick up Google’s latest flagship.
It looks like the Nexus 6 will be available in Canada for pre-order on Google Play a little later this month with all signs pointing to October 29th as the specific date for this. It is expected to appear in retail stores for purchase in early November. As far as pricing goes, it looks like Canadians can expect to pay $749 for the 32 GB Nexus 6 and $799 for the 64 GB model. The pricing looks like it might be a little disappointing for some as, in the past, many thought that the best thing about Google’s Nexus devices was that they offered great specs for a reasonable price. This current pricing, however, puts the Nexus 6 up there with the more expensive devices on the market. If the price doesn’t scare you off though you would certainly get plenty of bang for your buck as the specs on the Nexus 6 look incredible.
So what do you think Canadian fans? Are you excited about Google’s latest offering into the smartphone world? Will you be sitting at your computer early on October 29th so you can be one of the first in line to pre-order the Nexus 6? Let us know in the comments below or hit us up on our Google + page.
