Stunning Nexus 6 specs and facts 'revealed' in all their glory

Call it the Nexus 6, call it the Nexus X, call it the Shamu, call it whatever you want, the fact is that while we have many names for Google's new smartphone we don't have a huge number of details as yet.

But a new report from 9to5Google reiterates a few of them and fills in some gaps, as the site claims that the Nexus 6 will have a 5.92-inch 2560 x 1440 display with a pixel density of 498 pixels per inch and the processor will apparently be a Snapdragon 805 coupled with 3GB of RAM.

The Nexus 6 will reportedly have a 13MP camera capable of shooting 4K video, while there'll be a 2MP snapper on the front, apparently identical to the one on the new Moto X.

A large 3200 mAh battery is said to keep it running and supposedly it will come with 32GB of storage, though other sizes are also possible.

A bit low

It will unsurprisingly run Android L, but apparently the device which 9to5Google is 'familiar with' is only 32-bit, despite Android L bringing support for 64-bit devices.

Most of these specs are close to what we've heard before, but with multiple sources now mentioning them it seems likely that they're at least somewhat accurate.

Nexus 6 mock-up

The site also produced a mock-up of the device, revealing that it looks a lot like a larger Moto X, complete with an aluminium frame, with the only real difference being slightly repositioned volume and lock buttons.

Finally a small dimple is shown in the back, much like the one where the 'M' would be on other Motorola handsets. There's not much chance that we'll get an 'M' on a Nexus phone, but according to Android Police that's actually the site of a fingerprint scanner.

We're expecting the next Nexus to arrive in October or November so we should know more soon.

  • We're expecting a Nexus 9 too.
