Google Introduces Nexus 6

A few weeks after the release of the iPhone 6, Google follows with a new smartphone of their own: the Nexus 6.

The Motorola-manufactured phone is the brand's biggest yet, featuring a 6-inch display -- bigger than both the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy Note 4. Other specs include a Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 805 processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front camera, a 3220 mAh battery and two front-facing speakers. It also boasts internal storage of either 32GB or 64GB options and comes in in either blue or white colorways.

The Nexus 6 runs Google's brand new Android 5.0 Lollipop OS, which is also being launched today. It features a new design style for Android with a colorful look, and a battery saving feature that can extend a phone's life by up to 90 minutes. Additionally, the new smartphone comes equipped with one of Motorola's Turbo Chargers, which can charge the phone back up to six hours’ worth of battery life in 15 minutes.

The Nexus 6 will be available to pre-order on Oct. 29 and hits stores at the beginning of November for $649 USD unlocked or on a monthly contract.
