New Google Nexus 6 concept takes a colorful, curved approach
According to a recent rumor, Google’s next-generation Nexus smartphone might be manufactured by Lenovo (which this week agreed to buy Motorola from Google for nearly $3 billion). There’s no way of telling if this will indeed happen, so the list of possible Nexus 6 makers certainly remains open.

What will the next Nexus look like? That’s anyone’s guess. And this is why it’s fun to take a look at the latest Nexus 6 concept - envisioned by 91mobiles.com. Reportedly using details suggested by readers, the website designed a Nexus 6 that’s curved, resembling LG’s G Flex. Its features should include a 5.2-inch 1080p display, next-generation quad-core Qualcomm processor clocked at 3GHz, 5MP front-facing camera, 13MP rear camera with 4K video recording and dual LED flash, 3GB of RAM, 32GB / 64GB / 128GB of internal memory, and a self-healing back cover (another feature borrowed from the LG G Flex). The handset shouldn’t run Android KitKat, but a new iteration of Google’s OS: “Android 4.5 Lollypop.” Of course, it remains to be seen what name Google will choose for the upcoming major version of Android.

91mobiles’s Nexus 6 comes in a total of six color versions: green, blue, yellow, red, white and black. The first four are obviously inspired by the colors of the official Nexus logo.

Google will probably unveil the Nexus 6 towards the end of 2014. Until then, let us know if you'd like it to look like this:

2014 should be the year of aluminium phones for all OEMs.

Plastic = cheaper, lighter (think of falls), not so permanent markings, more flexible, more ways to the finish approach.

I like the blue one that looks semi-metalic, not very shiny (not on the stack foto). I don't like corners. Curved yes if display quality is equally good, with no linear glares due to curvature

Plastic is OK. It's just that Samsung has tarnished plastic's reputation with their greasy coatings. Plastic is far superior to metal when it comes to designing phones because it provides less interference. It's also lighter and more flexible.

who cares - 95% of people keep their phone in a case. All this irrelevant.

Did you say plastic is great because it absorbs shock much better than aluminum? The more shock resistance, the more it is prone to scratches.

Aluminum? Is XperiaOptimusOne crazy? Titanium is lighter and is the 9th most common element in the earths crust. If you even want to lose some of the shock resistance.

I'm still trying to see the point of curved displays.

Right? I understand them being flexible, but I'd rather they come flat, and give people the option to curve it with a case or something.

That would be awesome - add that to my list ...I would like to see an adjustable screen, of up to 7 inches...

I doubt they'll retain the same design on the back, judging from previous Nexus devices

Please don't. Curved phones look ridiculous. We finally get them slimmed down and now you want to make them fat again. Just put bigger batteries in them and keep them flat.

Unbelievable specs, unbelievably ugly phone. Please don't make it look like this. The jedii doesn't do ugly, and that's an ugly device. Make it strong and handsome like Darkk, and I'll consider it.

Honestly, speaking for the first time since iPhone launched I am excited about it, because hopefully it's gonna come with a large screen. My 4.3" screen phone is easy to handle but while playing Asphalt 8, it feels inadequate.

I have no problem with a curved model - colors? Why do colors...just go out and get a case for it - black or near black/grey is always the best to get...

Too early to expect that thing, just enjoy what is in the table for a while . My gnexus serve me as my light when I rebuild my coil for my atomizer.

This spec list is kind of stupid. It reads like a fanboi's wet dream. The Nexus has never pushed the envelope that much, especially recently.

I don't understand the point of these posts. A group of people who have nothing to do with either Lemovo or Google make up a fake Nexus 6. Hey, lets argue over a phone that will never exist designed by no one that actually matters or has nothing to do with the actual design process.
Since we know that the next one is being designed by Lenovo, wouldn't it be more productive to look at their design trends and prototypes and discuss that?

If you've been at PA for long enough. You'd know better. tl;dr Absolutely No. Trolls are gonna ruin such a discussion.
