With Google’s upcoming operating system update just around the corner, the company’s partnership with Motorola to produce another cost effective smartphone to replace the Nexus 5 will prove to be a very lucrative team venture. This is because apart from boasting a behemoth 5.92 inch screen size that will be displaying a 1440 pixel resolution, the Nexus 6 will be armed with some impressive technical specifications.
With the Snapdragon 801 chipset already becoming a mainstream chipset for majority of the smartphone vendors, Google and Motorola will arm the Nexus 6 with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 chipset, which houses a quad core Krait processor clocked in at 2.7 GHz per core. To provide the necessary amounts of graphics horsepower to combat video play back and taxing gaming applications, an Adreno 420 GPU will be running alongside the processor. Because the 1440 pixel resolution will end up draining the battery level at alarming levels, Google and Motorola will most likely have planned ahead as the latest reports show that the device will be planted with a 3,200 mAh battery.
Coming to the image and video capturing camp, the Nexus 6 will have a 13 MP rear camera, which is capable of shooting 4K videos. In addition, a 2 megapixel front camera will be added; the same one present in the second generation Moto X smartphone. Staying true to the Nexus line – up of smartphones, the Nexus 6 will most likely come in the 16 and 32 GB internal capacity models and will be running the Android L operating system. With the additions and improvements made to the Android L, the Nexus 6 will most likely be getting more battery life out of it.
However, this remains to be seen when the device is officially launched and battery benchmarking results have been announced.
