I surely would! According to the rumors and leaked specs circulating around the internet, the latest Nexus phone soon to be released by Google will be – for lack of a better word – awesome. A large, high resolution screen, a superb camera, a powerful hardware and the new Android L (lollipop?) operating system will make the Nexus X one of the top gadgets of this holiday season.
Let’s take a peek on what there is to know about the new Google flagship phone.
The supposedly facts that are circulating around the internet (these have not been confirmed by Google just yet) seem utterly realistic.
Nexus 6 (X) will have a qHD (one quarter of a full HD, 960×540 pixels) screen with a stunning 496ppi pixel density (Apple’s flagship iPhone 6 Plus has a Full HD screen with 401ppi). The size of the screen will also outgun the iPhone 6 – 5.9″, almost large enough for a tablet PC.
The processor hidden inside the phablet’s body is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 CPU, quad-core with a speed of up to 2.7 GHz per core (this specification is taken from Qualcomm, there is no word about the actual speed of the Nexus’ processor). This processing powerhouse is coupled with 3Gb of RAM (the platform supports 800MHz LPDDR3 in dual channel 64bit).
The Nexus 6 (X) will have a rear camera with a 13 megapixel sensor, capable or recording 4K video, and with dual flash for even better photos. The front facing camera will have a 2 megapixel sensor, perfect for video chat and quick selfies.
2. The Software
A new Nexus always comes with a new version of the Android operating system (the same goes for Apple). This year Google will release Android L (probably Lollipop, but maybe Licorice), with a series of innovative features included. We have covered them here.
One thing to mention about the software: at first it will only be available on the new Nexus, and the first smartphone available on the market to get the new and improved OS will most likely be the Moto X, recently released by Motorola. The other phones will have the update rolled out gradually, before the end of the year.
3. The release
According to the experience of the previous years and previous Nexus models, October is the month preferred by Google to release its new hardware and OS. Last year’s Nexus was launched mid-October, and for this year the rumors talk about the end of the month. An October 31 release date seems likely, so let’s just stick to that one for the time being. Google is to officially confirm the release date.
So, if the rumors are right, we only have about three weeks to wait until the new Nexus hits the market. Until then we will have to make do with what we have, and play the brand new casino games at Red Flush Casino on last year’s Nexus – or whatever we have at hand.
