Google Nexus 6 with Android Lollipop Officially Introduced, on Pre-Order from October 29

Google has finally taken the wraps off its newest Android flagship smartphone, the Nexus 6. As expected, the smartphone will be powered by the latest version of Google's mobile platform, which is called Android Lollipop.

It appears that Google successfully secured the Nexus 6 name after all, even though previous rumors suggested that the company faced some issues on the matter. Along with the Nexus 6 announcement, Google also introduced the new version of Android, namely Lollipop, as well as the Nexus 9 tablet manufactured by HTC. As expected, the Nexus 6 has been especially released by Google to fill a gap in its offering. Until today, the search giant did not have any device that could compete with other flagship phablet launched by other handset makers. Nexus 6 is Google's alternative to Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Apple's iPhone 6 Plus, as well as other phablets in the same price range.

Google new flagship smartphone boasts a huge 6-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution and 496ppi (pixel per density). On the inside, the device is armed with a powerful 2.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 Krait 450 processor, an Adreno 440 graphics processing unit and 3GB of RAM.There will be two Nexus 6 variants available for purchase via Google Play Store, 32GB and 64GB. Neither of these versions will come with microSD card slot, but this was to be expected.

The Nexus 6 also packs an impressive 13-megapixel f/2.0 photo snapper on the back, which features dual-LED flash, autofocus and video recording. There's also a secondary 2-megapixel front facing camera, which indicates that Google isn't too fond of selfie smartphones yet. According to Google, the Nexus 6 will be powered by a 3,220 mAh non-removable battery, which supports Turbo Charging. This will provide users with up to 6 hours of use after only 15 minutes of charging. The company also confirmed that the Nexus 6 should definitely offer 24 hours of usage, though it's unclear under what conditions. Nexus 6 will be available for pre-order in the United States beginning October. All major carriers in the country will offer the smartphone, including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular.

The SIM free 32GB variant will be available for purchase via Google Play Store for $649 (€510) outright. Pre-order are scheduled to start on October 29 and shipping should commence in early November. No word on price tag for the 64GB model, but we do know Nexus 6 will come in two different color options: Midnight Blue and Cloud White.
