Nexus 6: 10 features we expect to see

Nexus 6: 10 features we expect to see
The Nexus 6 is right around the corner, but even before its official arrival, the rumor mill has churned out plenty of details about Google's next big thing. It all started with a codename: 'Shamu', the name of an orca whale, one of the biggest mammals on the planet. The Nexus 6 is exactly that - a big phone. In fact, it's Google's first phablet!

Rumors further kept on coming revealing details piece by piece, starting with our few exclusive scoops that were first to reveal the 5.9" screen size and the specifications of the Nexus 6. What this meant is that we now have a pretty full picture of all the new features of the Nexus 6.

And can you think of a better time to summarize them than right before the official announcement? Join us as we look at all the expectations about design, display, interface, performance and camera right below.

Liquorice expected. And why does PA disable comments from users who are connected to a cellular network?

I love all this Nexus coverage but please PA enough let them surprise us with something. I still like to have some excitement. Wait till they announce the phone and then you can make 27 articles about it.

Hopefully a Full HD display instead of Quad HD which is nothing but a gimmick at this screen size. That should probably lower the price a little bit, too.

NOT!!, VZW is too much of a greedy control freak to allow an unlocked, unbloated phone on their network that gets it's updates directly from Google.

I stand corrected, It will be available on all 4 major carriers, at&t, t-mobile, sprint and (hell has frozen over) even verizon.
