Nexus 6P Is A Beautifully Designed Premium Phablet From Google

Google isn’t shying away from making Nexus phablets, and that’s pretty much evident with this year’s Nexus 6P. This year it’s Huawei that’s making Nexus 6P for Google.


Nexus 6P is the first in series to feature full metal chassis. Looks like Google is trying to give some premium finish to its Nexus phones. Its front is (literally) dominated by a 5.7 inch screen with QuadHD resolution. Good news, it’s an AMOLED unit, so you know what to expect. Did you see Motorola like front design? Those are the front facing stereo speakers.

Fingerprint sensors are trending in 2015 and Google’s both new phones too have it. Google’s got a fancy name for it as well – Nexus Imprint. Although the screen has been shrunk, the dimensions remain the same as the outgoing Nexus 6. This means, Nexus 6P has thick bezels.

I bet most of you must have already guessed the processor inside it. It’s the commonly found Snapdragon 810, clocked at 2GHz. And you get 3GB RAM, which for a Nexus phone is more than enough. Both the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X use the same 12.3MP camera module. It seems Google had tighter control on new Nexus phones.¬†Just like most other flagships this year, Nexus 6P too has laser AF, can record 4K UltraHD, 240 fps slow-mo videos. It’s got an 8MP front camera.

Nexus 6 has got a pretty big 3450 mAh battery as well. Nexus phones weren’t really famous for the battery in the past but since Google has made some improvements related to battery life in Android Marshmallow, it’d be interesting to see how long it lasts.¬†Nexus 6P covers a wide range of 4G LTE bands across the globe.Google has adapted USB Type C for it as well.

Nexus 6P will cost you back by US $499. It’s already available for pre-order in USA, UK, Ireland and Japan.
