The Nexus 6 is Google's Lollipop-running phablet, and it's massive
Yum yum

As we'd anticipated, Google has just announced the Nexus 6, and it's built by Motorola.

The phone is the biggest Google has put out yet and packs a whopping 5.9-inch Quad HD display, a 13MP camera, and dual front-facing stereo speakers, all built into a brushed aluminium body.

The phone runs on a 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, and comes in 32GB and 64GB storage variants. The battery is also a biggy at 3220mAh, and we expect it'll need it.

The phone is essentially an inflated Moto X when you look at the design, which is no bad thing. We just hope you like your handsets big.

Tasty treat

It also comes running Android 5.0 Lollipop (yes, that name is now confirmed) which launches today also on the Nexus 9 tablet. Lollipop introduces a new power-saving feature that will supposedly juice out an extra 90 minutes of power.

The phone also comes with a Motorola Turbo Charger, which should give you six hours of power from a 15 minute charge.

Google says the Lollipop update will hit the Nexus 5, 7, 10 and Google Play edition devices "in the coming weeks".

The Nexus 6 will go up for pre-order on October 29 and will be available in stores in November. Without a contract it's going to cost $649 (global prices incoming) for the 32GB version. So yeah, not cheap.
