The Nexus 6 handset featuring the new Android L seems to be just around the corner, as new clues for the device’s release have surfaced.
How’s That Nexus 6 Coming Along?
Thos who are waiting for the new Nexus 6 device have received a treat in the form of some pictures that show renders of the newest Google flagship. As it can be seen in these renders, the device will come in at least two colors, the standard black and white.
All the rumors that have been going on for a while about the device being based on the new Moto X from Motorola seem to be partly true, according to Droid Life, which says that there are only two differences between the two devices. The new Nexus will feature a larger screen, with about 6 inches, and a back panel that will bear the marks of both Google and Motorola.
The much-speculated design that emphasizes on minimalism has also been revealed in thee render pictures, which features the home screen of the device as well. The user interface displayed on the home screen pretty much screams Material Design.
Taking a look at earlier specified components, the device will come with a 5.92 inch display capable of working with images at a 2k resolution. Underneath the front panel lies a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor with four cores. The camera combo brings users a 13 MP lens on the rear and a smaller 2 MP shooter on the front panel.
A video was presented to the web via SamMobile in which the Samsung Galaxy S5 runs the new Android L 5.0, but the result isn’t what you might expect. The same SamMobile points out that the device was better off with the stock Android KitKat, rather than the bug-infested, incredibly sluggish operating system it was running in the video.
However, the important thing to take from the video is that a Galaxy S5 was spotted rocking the Material Design characteristics on its TouchWiz interface, meaning that the final and official build of Android L will be here soon.
There are rumors of an even that will be held by Google on the 16th of October, and many believe that this is where Google’s new releases such as the Nexus 6 smartphone and the Nexus 8/9 tablet will debut. Without a doubt, the Nexus 6 will be the first device to run on the new Android L, which might be coming under another name. Other heavily rumored names for the OS are Android Lemon Meringue Pie and lately Android Lion.
