Everything We Know So Far About The Nexus 6P
The Nexus 6P is coming soon, in just two days in fact. In classic Nexus fashion, there have been a ton of leaks. We know quite a bit about this phone so far, but since information has been coming left and right, let’s pull everything into one location and see exactly what we know about the phone so far.
On the front of the Nexus 6P we’ll find a 5.7″ WQHD display that, in a surprise twist, will be an AMOLED display. Protecting the display will be Gorilla Glass 4, a great upgrade from Gorilla Glass 3 on the Nexus 6. Flanking the display will be two front facing speakers and an 8MP front facing camera. On the rear of the phone we’ll have a 12.3MP camera with an f/2.0 apeture with a new sensor design. Somewhat like HTC’s Ultrapixels, the Nexus 6P’s camera will be able to pull more light out of a scene despite it’s higher aperture. Under the camera sensor we also have a fingerprint sensor which will be used for unlocking your phone, using Android Pay, and more.
Powering the phone will be a Snapdragon 810 v2.1 Octa-Core processor backed up by 3GB of RAM. The phone will ship with Android Marshmallow and will be available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB variants. The battery inside the phone will also come in at 3,450 mAh, quite a step up from previous devices.
This will also be the first Nexus smartphone with an all-metal body. It will be available in aluminum, frost, graphite, and gold. However the gold seems like it will only be available in Japan at launch. Sadly the inclusion of an all-metal body pretty much rules out built-in wireless charging. However the phone will have USB C and almost certainly Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0. The dimensions of the phone come in at 159.4 x 77.8 x 7.3mm. That means it’s about the same height as the Nexus 6, a bit thinner, and not quite as wide. The weight comes in at 178g.
So overall, the Nexus 6P looks like it’ll be a pretty promising phone. Pricing is unknown, but I’d say we’ll probably see something between $499 and $649 for the base model. Are you looking forward to the Nexus 6P? Let us know in the comments below!
