Google Nexus 6 (2015) Preview – What We Know So Far

1

Today we’re going to discuss a little bit on the rumors going around about Google collaboration with Huawei which will result in a new version of the Google Nexus 6. The Google Nexus 5, the one that LG is manufacturing, has been the talk of the town because some photos of the device have been leaked, but that doesn’t mean assumptions about the Huawei gadget haven’t been circling around.

For example, a lot of people have been saying that the Google Nexus 6 2015 will show off a smaller display than it did in its last representation (5.7 inches as compared to the 5.96 inches its predecessor has). Talk about the device having a premium-like design and a slim body has also been going around, though with no plausible evidence yet.

Other rumors coming from @evleaks say that the handset will rock a Quad HD display, which will be pretty impressive technology to see on Google’s new device – but we’re actually more inclined to think that LG will bring this feature to its smartphone because we’ve seen it before on LG G3 and LG G4.

As for the USB port, more and more companies have been opting for the Type-C model because it ensures higher speed in data transfer as well as a possibility for Android going across platforms (which of course Google will be the first one to establish).

There are rumors about the processor as well, the chipset added supposedly being the Snapdragon 820 from Qualcomm. Assuming that Qualcomm has fixed the over-heating problem with this chipset (there was a discussion about this when Samsung opted for an Exynos chipset for their flagship), the new Nexus 6 will probably be one of the top performance gadgets on the market.

Other features that the new handset is supposed to offer are fingerprint scanning (which seems very likely to happen, as the new Android Marshmallow will have support for this feature) and a whooping 21 MP primary camera.

For now, these are the only plausible rumors that have been going around in the tech world. We’ll keep you updated on what else we find out about Google’s new Nexus 6. As for the release date for this device and its sibling, the Nexus 5, we’re expecting an early October launch party.
