Nexus 6 2015 vs Nexus 6: What We Know So Far

Release Date

Release Date

The Nexus 6 was announced in October and released around the end of November, and has been a pretty popular smartphone considering all carriers have been offering it. However, it still didn't do as well as Google hoped.

These new Nexus phones though, could do much better given the pricing, specs, and release dates. We're hearing the new LG Nexus 5 will be announced in September and released before the end of October, and the new Nexus 6 by Huawei will follow shortly behind it sometime in Q4.

Every leak we've seen for the Nexus 6 in 2014 points to a late 2015 release date. Even @evleaks stated Q4, but that could by anytime between October-December. Google plans to release Android 5.2 M in September, and they could debut it on both new Nexus smartphones, but not release the phones until October, which would be the 4th quarter of the year.

We don't know anything for sure yet, but with September quickly approaching more details should begin to surface soon. The last two Nexus smartphones were announced and released in October and November. Could we see an earlier release this year? We'll have to wait and see.

    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
