Google is yet to announce the release date of its upcoming device dubbed as Nexus 6, forget about revealing other details, but media has revealed almost all the major features of the device weeks ahead of its launch.
Here are eight expected features of Nexus 6 we know so far from several sources and reports:
1) Processor: There are conflicting reports on processor that will power the much-hyped Nexus 6. Taiwan's Economic Daily has reported that the device will be powered by MediaTek 64-bit SoC processor, but according to G4Games, the device may have either a "quad-core MT6732 64-bit chip that clocked at 1.5GHz, or the octa-core MT6752 SoC running at a frequency of 2.0GHz."
2) Operating System: The device will most probably run on Android L. Dave Burke, the head of Android engineering and the Nexus program at Google, told ReadWrite in an interview that the company is working on a new Nexus device which will be released along with Android L.
3) Display: Nexus 6 is expected to sport a 5.2-inch full HD screen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and have 1080x1920 pixels resolution.
5) Memory: Google's flagship smartphone is expected to be packed with 32 GB internal memory and 3GB RAM.
6) Connectivity: The device may boast of Wi-Fi, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and micro-USB connectivity slot, according to 91mobiles.
7) Design: Nexus 6 is expected to come with a curved LCD display. It may have a lightweight, polycarbonate body.
8) Battery: The device may house a 3100 mAh Li-Polymer battery, which is a huge upgrade from Nexus 5's Li-Po 2300 mAh battery that lasts upto 17 hours (talk time).
Nexus 6 Release Date
Google hasn't revealed the release date of Nexus 6 but several reports have pointed at an October release. Sundar Pichai, VP at Google, had said at the Mobile World Congress 2014 (MWC 2014) that the device would be announced in October, which is the most credible piece of information on Nexus release so far.
