Big day for loyal Nexus fans is finally here. At an official press event today, Google finally made the pro-long rumor mills and leaks to come to an end by unveiling its latest flagship guns for the year 2015. Google introduced the all new LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P today. This time Google has joined hands with Huawei to pull out its mainstream flagship device, and Huawei has put a lot of effort on this device which the device itself shows.
Huawei has built the Nexus 6P with aircraft-grade aluminium. The build quality makes this device purely premium. A 5.7-inch quad HD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels is lying down in this premium aluminium-built device. At the top of the screen we can find a 5 MP selfie shooter. At the back we have a 12.3 MP powered up by Sony imaging sensor having 1.55 micron-pixels. A dual LED flash is placed next to the camera. Google has placed the Nexus Imprint (Fingerprint scanner) below the camera at the back of this device. Google has powered this device up with Snapdragon 810 v2.1 CPU which is reportedly free of overheating issues. A RAM of 3 GB is placed inside. Storage options in Google Nexus 6P are 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB and there’s no external card slot on this device. A battery of 3500 mAh is packed inside. Nexus 6P runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, which may not be a surprise for many of the Nexus fans as it was expected to debut on this device. Nexus 6P comes with USB Type C support for charging.
Google seems to be putting a lot of hard work on improving the camera of its latest Nexus. The new 12.3 MP camera comes with a larger sensor having f/2.0 aperture and 1.5µm pixels which is way larger then that of the flagship smartphones of the day. Using the new burst shot mode, you can create funny GIFs. The camera on Nexus 6P also brings new slow motion video recording at 240 FPS. Google has embedded all these new features in the new Camera app which is based on the latest Camera 3.0 API having all camera improvements.
The fingerprint scanner (Nexus Imprint) on Nexus 6P is quite impressive. On Samsung and Apple, users first had to wake up the screen and then tap the fingerprint scanner in order to get beyond the lock screen, things are different and pretty easy on Nexus 6P. On Nexus 6P, you can simply tap the fingerprint scanner, it will bypass the screen by directly unlocking it within a second. The new fingerprint scanner works faster then ordinary fingerprint scanners in use by other manufacturers. Google has made the Nexus Imprint compatible with Android Pay.
As always, this Nexus is also up for sale in the Google Play Store. Users can start placing their orders right away. The base variant which comes in 32 GB storage option will cost around $499 and the 64 GB variant will cost around $549. The Nexus 6P is a 4G LTE supported smartphone, which will be sold in unlocked form and will also work on all major US carriers.
