Google Nexus 6 leaked specs confirm Huge 5.9-inch QHD display

Google logoGoogle’s next Nexus smartphone is expected to go on sale by the end of the year, but an exact release date is likely to be revealed next month.

Until then, however, info on the so-called Nexus 6 or Nexus X continues to surface online. Many of these leaks indicate that the next smartphone in the Nexus family will be manufactured by Motorola.

Internally known as Motorola Shamu, the smartphone will be much bigger than what we have initially expected. Previous rumors claimed that the Nexus 6 might sport a 5.2-inch display, but new info that has just emerged via 9to5Google indicates that Motorola has something else in mind.

Motorola Shamu or Nexus 6/X will boast a huge 5.92-inch display, which is said to support QHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels). According to the cited source, Shamu’s screen will offer 498ppi (pixel per inch), which is only slightly lower than LG G3’s QHD display that supports 534ppi.

But the display is not the only part of the upcoming Nexus smartphone that seems to have been enhanced since the previous information leaked online. Instead of the 2300 mAh battery that should have powered the 5.2-inch version of the Nexus 6, the new variant is said to pack a much larger 3200 mAh battery.

The main camera has been boosted from 12 to 13 megapixels, and it will be able to record 4K UHD videos. On the front, the Nexus 6 will pack a 2-megapixel camera for selfies and video calls.

When it comes to hardware, unsurprisingly, Nexus 6 will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset that will accommodate a quad-core processor of unknown speed.

However, we do know that the flagship smartphone will be armed with no less than 3GB of RAM, the same amount that’s been included in the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Sony Xperia Z3.

The mock-up that’s now circulating on the Internet may look like the scaled-up version of the Moto X, but 9to5Google claims that there are enough differences between the two devices, which makes them believe this is how the Nexus 6 may look like.

Keep in mind though that the design of the Nexus 6 has yet to be finalized, which means the final product may be slightly different from the mock-up leaked today, but not by much.

Although the Nexus branding does not appear on the mock-up, the real smartphone will be launched with the logo of the lineup etched on the back cover.
