Nexus 6 Leaks in Press Render for the First Time

After countless of leaks that didn’t really show what the Nexus 6 will really look like, today marks the day the first press render of the smartphone popped up online.

Courtesy to none other than @evleaks (Evan Blass), the first picture of the Nexus 6 phablet now offers us a glimpse at what Google's next flagship smartphone looks like. Judging by the size of the smartphone, it’s now clear that Google will launch a 5.9-inch Nexus 6 instead of a much smaller version. We also don’t expect the company to announce a mini variant along with the phablet during the official announcement. However, a smaller Nexus 6 “clone” may be available under Motorola’s brand, but it will be sold by the US-based handset maker and it won’t come as cheap as a Google phone may come. The leaked picture also reveals that the Nexus 6 will pack dual front speakers, one placde above the display and another one at the bottom. The volume and lock/unlock keys have been placed at the middle of the right side of the smartphone for easier access.

Obviously, the phone will be powered by Android L at launch, or whatever Google will decide to name its next version of the operating system.

We can also see that there’s a front-facing camera and that the back side has a concave form factor. The Nexus 6 does seem to be a bit slimmer on top and bottom sides and thicker at the middle. But there might be an optical illusion due to the angle at which the picture was taken. This looks like a black version, but Google may launch a white variant as well. No additional details have been shared on the smartphones’ specs sheet, but we already know quite a lot about Nexus 6. For those still not in the loop, here is a quick recap of what Nexus 6’s specification list may look like. First of all, the smartphone will boast an impressive 5.9-inch QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) capacitive touchscreen display and a powerful 2.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor.

Furthermore, the smartphone is expected to pack an Adreno 440 graphics processing unit, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. Nexus 6 is likely to lack microSD card slot for memory expansion, which is why we believe Google may launch a 64GB model as well. Nexus 6 has been confirmed for official unveiling sometime this month, along with Android L. However, the exact release date for the device hasn’t been announced yet.
