Nexus 6 Specs

Last year the Nexus 6 was Google's first Nexus that truly had almost every checkbox marked in terms of specs. It was a powerhouse flagship smartphone, but along with it came a huge price tag. This year it looks like Google's going back to the old Nexus roots, and aiming for great but not overwhelming specs, and more affordable prices. In order to do that specs can't be high-end in every single category. Well, unless it's made by Huawei.

Again we don't have any solid details yet, but based on a few rumors, announcements from Google regarding Android M, and previous releases, here's what to expect in terms of specs.

Nexus 6 2015 Specs (Rumored)

  • 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD Display
  • 8-core Snapdragon 820 processor with 3 or 4GB of RAM (Maybe an 810)
  • 32 & 64GB storage configurations
  • Android M (5.2 or Android 6.0)
  • 21 Megapixel rear and unknown front camera setup
  • 3,500 mAh battery
  • Aluminum Design
  • Fingerprint Scanner
  • USB Type-C Port
  • more

That's all we know so far, but we can also assume it will have dual (or at least one) front facing speaker like the original Nexus 6, have a more durable design, and be one of the best Nexus phones t date. That big 3,500 mAh battery alone should have many potential buyers excited. Now, here's how the original compares.

 

Nexus 6 2014 Specs

  • 5.96-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD Display
  • 2.7 GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GB of RAM
  • 32GB/64GB internal storage
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop (64-bit support)
  • 13 Megapixel camera with OIS, 2 MP front camera (4k video capture)
  • Dual Front-facing speakers
  • Aluminum frame around the device
  • 3,220 mAh battery

As you can see, all areas except the screen size the new Nexus 6 in 2015 should be better. Combine that with great battery life, an improved premium design, Android M and a lower price, and it could be the best Nexus ever released.

    Any hints on whether it’ll be waterproof or at least splash resistant? Am living in a part of the world where that’s quite an important feature… :-)

    so…I’m still wondering why the new Nexus will be any better. A fingerprint scanner? I know having a completely aluminum build is appealing, but it isn’t functional and most of us keep our devices in cases anyway, which stops the user from enjoying a premium build feel. The screen is smaller, which will make the front facing speakers less enjoyable because front facing speakers are great for watching videos but smaller screens are not. The 2014 Nexus 6 has an already great build, it was reportedly submerged in water and worked fine afterward (though this Was understandably never claimed by Google). The list goes on and on. I don’t understand why every Android blogger bashes the Nexus 6, nor why they make “cant wait” claims about the 2015 version – no 64 bit, no optimized image stabilization. I’m not buyin the hype
