Even with both phones standing on their respective heads, we can see the larger sized-screen on the Nexus 6 (5.9-inch vs. 5.5-inch on the Apple iPhone 6 Plus) and the wider and longer footprint on the stock Android device. The Nexus 6 has some mighty mouth-watering specs, if the most recent rumors are true. For starters, we're talking about a 5.9-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. That works out to a scrumptious pixel density of 496.ppi. As a comparison, the 5.5-inch screen on the iPhone phablet offers resolution of 1080 x 1920, and a pixel density of 401ppi.
The rest of the Nexus 6 also sounds awe inspiring with a quad-core 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 CPU under the hood, and the Adreno 420 GPU crunching the graphics. 3GB of RAM is on board. The rear-facing camera is 13MP, records in 4K, and is equipped with OIS. The front-facing snapper comes in at 2MP. A 3200mAh battery keeps the lights on all day, and Android L is pre-installed.
There is speculation that we could see this unveiled as soon as tomorrow (Wednesday), along with the HTC produced Nexus 9 slate. With these specs, stock Android, quick updates, and Nexus-style pricing, there could be a new sheriff in town very soon.
Thanks for the tip!
