Nexus 6P slides leak confirming name, specs, colors, memory options and more

Thanks to the slides, we can tell you that the model has a metal build and is equipped with a Gorilla Glass 4 protected 5.7-inch screen, carrying a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The Snapdragon 810 (version 2.1) chipset is under the hood, containing an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. A 3450mAh battery pumps power through the phone's veins, and the unit features dual speakers in front. A fingerprint scanner is available on the back of the handset.
Android 6.0 is pre-installed, which means that the Nexus 6P will offer Google Now on Tap. This provides timely information based on what is on your screen when Google Now is activated. For example, if you have a movie trailer on the display, tap the screen and hold, and Google Now will present cards with information about the film. Android 6.0 also offers a native fingerprint scanner, let's you choose which permissions to allow when installing an app, and offers an improved stand-by system to stretch out battery life.
The slides hint at a low f-stop (aperture) for the rear-camera, which would allow for "better images under low-light conditions." A faster Google Camera app allows you to quickly focus on your subject. The Nexus 6P will be offered in Aluminum, Graphite, Frost and Gold, although the latter is available in Japan only. The phone will give buyers the option of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB of native storage. One slide says that the stock Android handset will be pre-loaded with "The Best of Google Apps." A USB-Type C port is on board, and the phone weighs in at 178 grams.
The Huawei built Nexus 6P and the LG produced Nexus 5X will both be unveiled on September 29th at a previously announced media event being held by Google.

Not even close. There wont be any android this year with better screen quality, camera quality, all combined together better than the bunch of Samsung flagships. There was never and there never will be a nexus device that has top camera and top screen quality.

I'm Not Saying Sony This And Sony That. I Just Believe In Giving Credit When Something Deserves It. From What I've Seen The Z5 Is A Great Phone And Deserves A Spot Right Next To The GS6. Sony Isn't Dead, Neither is HTC Or Black Berry, People Saying So Is Getting Real Old.

You might be right, if the battery life isn't good then it is not worth all that money. Too many other options for smartphones nowadays. I don't think the phones are worth buying this year at all, pretty disappointing all around.

Unlike the fanboy saying that Sony is dead, you are right. In pure cpu gpu screen power, s6 is better, but overall the z5 is a more well rounded phone. It's up to the consumer what they want. I was so close to buying the s6 edge despite memory options. Let's see the review of the z5, except the boring same back design, they sure came in with a bang this time.

Sony took the 2015 award, no question. Timeless premium design, premium materials and construction. Waterproof. Dual front speakers. Unmatched battery life. Superb camera, one of the best. Brightest display. Well placed finger scanner. Priced lower than Samsungs, LGs and HTCs. No other phone brings the above total package.

Samsung has the best hardware coupled with the worst software. For me, the software is more important, because it's what we interact with every day, as long as the hardware is decent enough. So you see... a phone might not have the same camera or screen quality of the s6, yet be more pleasant to use in everyday life, as usually happens with nexus phones, which have the best usability among android phones.

Nah Mate This Phone Will Suck. 810 With A 2k Screen Is Just Failure Waiting To Happen. Unless They Took A Page From Sony And Did Everything Possible To Control The Heat. But Since Nexus Phones Always Have A Lower Than Normal Price Tag I Doubt They Did.

It's a large all metal device, and it's rocking the revised chip, it could possibly be without heat issues. I'm sure they won't release their flagship for the whole of Android with a major flaw... At least I hope they won't... I'm so excited though....
