Nexus 6 snapped next to the Apple iPhone 6 Plus

Nexus 6 snapped next to the Apple iPhone 6 Plus
Earlier today, we showed you an alleged render of the Nexus 6 that was disseminated by retired serial leaker evleaks. We pointed out that the phone strongly resembled the Motorola Moto X. Now, we have another photo supposedly showing the Nexus 6 standing next to another big name in the smartphone industry, the Apple iPhone 6 Plus.
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!

Booom! The nexus 6 has come out today and it looks nothing like the one in this article. PA you were trolled by TK. Look at that bottom bezel on the Motorola, it is clearly a Moto X as the Nexus 6 has a much thinner bezel.

The only prob with the iPhone design moving forward is the home button placement + Touch ID. This takes a lot out of that room to maneuver for them product designers + designers and it's the side bezels that needs trimming. Unfortunately the current setup are still central to the UX implementation, Apple should consider an onscreen home key instead and perhaps move Touch ID to the logo on the back (hell I think this is awesome if truly possible) for future vers. More excuse for the slightly added thickness to add to robustness and bigger batt too. Not holding my breath but hey stranger things have happened, them 6s did went large finally..

The king of Android. But i don't think so Nexus 6 going to made by Motorola due to the ugly design and Super Amoled screen hope no.

This is just a Moto X next to an iphone 6. Don't be fooled by this TK scammer.

This is a fake. It's a Moto X next to a regular iPhone 6 (with the iPhone showing a screen shot from another article, hence landscape). This guy is a fake. Stop posting his fake garbage.

Yeah, you're right. You can see the hand motion sensors on the Moto X. This guy is a fraud but PA keeps printing his stuff.

I can't believe these tech sites are all using him as a source. He allegedly tried to kill a police officer for Christ's sake.

I doubt this will come to Verizon. Their version will be the Droid Turbo. This is where I hate Verizon

It may come to Verizon, if the strong rumors hold true. If not, my next choice is the Droid Turbo, but I really want this.

Come one Verizon with a Nexus? Where did you see that rumor? I don't see them launching two Motorola phones with in two weeks specially two flagships. The turbo is set to released on October 27 or something like that. I do wish Verizon had a better Android line up.

I'd pick the 6 over the turbo if everything remains the same. Imagine if Moto puts a 4000mAh battery.

I think anyone would pick the Nexus over the Turbo specially with what Verizon would have done to the Nexus. Remember the Galaxy Nexus nough said. I just want a great Android to go with my iPhone 6+. I'm gonna go with the note 4 but I'm not a big fan of TouchWiz

Hopefully everyone will stop complaining about the size.

I won't, for 6 inch phones are great. But under 4 inch? Are joking, because it's fit in your pocket and sacrifice the entertainment, nah not me. It could be different for some people. But it is my opinion

I feel a sudden urge to flip my table right now. Looks like a great phone. Oh well might as well be happy with what I bought haha

As you should be because if you try keeping up with the latest phones, your bank account will definitely take a hit. Trust me on this one.

Actually can't agree more. Kinda wish I waited until the actual announcement and didn't base my judgement on those poor leaked renderings/pics though. Seriously thought it was going to be much larger than the iPhone 6+. BTW rocking a Z3 and happy with it.

Lucky bastard! I want a Z3.

I've been through the S3, Note 3, S5, M8, and 6 Plus. All in one year. I can afford it since I don't party every weekend, but yeah. Glad to hear you're liking your phone. What are your pros and cons?

My impressions so far: - Bright and sharp IPS screen with great viewing angles. There is a notable bluish tint but I am not too bothered by it. - Dual speakers are loud, but are only audible enough 3-4 notches from max volume. Might be an Android thing? When it gets decently loud however, I can hear distortions every now and then when there are too many channels. As expected for a smartphone, they are tinny sounding. Almost the same as 5S in clarity here. - Build quality is great. Personally love the simplistic+stylish looks. Unlike other smartphones with Gorilla Glass 3 however, the screen feels somewhat flimsy. Maybe it's part of the design... have no clue. - Camera is decent. I've never been all that impressed with camera performance on phones with Android, but this one is at least acceptable for me. Minimal noise and low-light pics come out looking brighter than it really is (which can be a pro or con). Images don't come out as sharp (marginal difference) and vibrant as say the 5S with the Superior Auto mode, and getting things to focus properly is a challenge. Anyway, it's not that bad. Definitely not a deal breaker like it was with the Xperia Z1. - Call quality is the highlight of this phone for me. I've been rocking a 5S for so long I've forgotten how speakerphones should sound like. It's simply jaw dropping. Feels like I am actually speaking with the person. No muffled sound. If I was to give this a score out of 10, it'll be a 7.5. Not that perfect - but at least impressive enough to keep for a year until the next best thing arrives. Hope this helps.

Thank you! Battery life seems to be superb as Phonearena reported. It's currently at 59% battery after two days of light usage (approx 5 hrs messaging, 30min of voice calls, but no gaming).

Amen to that. I've had to slow down this year because it has gotten ridiculous.

Ditto, that's why I skipped the N4, no more two flagships per year.
