Google’s Nexus 6 And Nexus 9 Are Finally Official, Here’s What You Need To Know

What a great year it has been in the tech world. We’ve seen a lot of innovation, a lot of gadgets that came up and given the world a new direction to move in. As 2014 began, the smartphone giants got busy cooking up their big guns and pulled the curtains off one by one to stay in the competition. We’re done seeing 2 flagships from Sony in this year so far, we’ve seen LG’s G3, HTC’s One M8, Motorola’s Moto G, Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4, Apple also unveiled it’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus that helped it to join the phablet war and we sew a lot of similar products from other smartphone giants like Huawei, Asus etc. The only giant left to jump in the competition was Google, and today, finally, it has jumped in with Nexus 6 and Nexus 9.

Although the rumors taught us a lot about the Nexus 6, but it’s always good to wait for the gadget to go official and then see what came out in the spotlight. Manufactured by Motorola, the Nexus 6 flaunts a beautiful 5.96-inch QHD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and 493 ppi. At the back, we’ve a 13 Megapixel camera sensor whereas we have a 2 MP camera sensor on the front. Under the hood, there’s a 3 GB RAM. Internal storage is either 32 GB or 64 GB, there’s no external card slot though. Nexus 6 is powered up with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 Quad Core CPU clocked at 2.7 GHz accompanied by Adreno 420 GPU. Out of the box, it runs on Android Lollipop, which also makes the Nexus 6 world’s very first device to run the biggest iteration in the history of Android so far. In case you remember, most of these specifications make the Nexus 6 stand next to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 and it looks like a serious competition will be going on between these two, while the Nexus 6 already leaves the iPhone 6 Plus far behind. Nexus 6’s official specifications also verify the recent leaked information, that was spotted by Androidpolice, the specifications are exactly as the official ones. Nexus 6 looks like a bigger version of Motorola’s latest Moto X, the phone looks quite thin as well.
