Nexus 6 Confirmed to Pack 5.9-Inch QHD Display, 13MP Camera and 3200 mAh Battery

Google upcoming flagship smartphone, the Nexus 6 made headlines in the last couple of weeks, as rumors about the handset’s specs continue to leak online.

According to previous reports, Google’s Nexus 6 will boast a huge 5.9-inch capacitive touchscreen display, which is supposed to support QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution. The information has just been confirmed through another source, so Android fans expecting to upgrade their older Nexus smartphone should start thinking whether or not they want a device with such a large display. Even though Nexus 6 originally leaked as a 5.2-inch smartphone, it looks like Google decided that’s not enough of an upgrade over the previous model. We do think that Google might launch two versions of Nexus 6, one with a large 5.9-inch QHD display, which will be the company’s flagship smartphone, and another one with a 5.2-inch display aimed at those who can’t afford the flagship device or favor smaller screens.

However, the chance of Google launching a smaller version of Nexus 6 does seem slim now that everyone is only talking about the Motorola Shamu, the large Nexus 6 model. Anyway, the folks over at AndroidPolice report they have been given inside info on the Nexus 6, which confirms the smartphone will indeed sport 5.9-inch QHD display with 496ppi (pixel per density). Design-wise, the smartphone will look exactly like the Motorola Moto X with only a few differences given the slightly larger chassis.

Nexus 6 will be compatible with Motorola's turbo charger

For example, the Nexus 6 will feature black stereo speakers in the front, while the power on/off button and the dual volume key will be placed farther down on one side of the smartphone. The smartphone is likely to be made of high-quality plastic, but it will feature an aluminum frame, just like the new Motorola Moto X. On the back, Nexus 6 will pack a 13-megapixel camera with autofocus, dual-flash ring and OIS (optical image stabilization. The smartphone will also come with a 2-megapixel camera in the front and a huge 3200 mAh battery to make up for the power hungry display.

Speaking of which, sources familiar with Google Nexus 6 plans claim the smartphone will support Motorola’s turbo charger, which means users will be able to charge the phone’s battery for 8 hours of usage in just 15 minutes. As expected, the Nexus 6 will be the first smartphone to ship with Android L operating system out of the box and the mockup attached shows the handset’s new homescreen that reflects this change.
