Google has now made its Nexus 6 available for pre-ordering. The Android 5.0 Lollipop-run smartphone starts at $649 for the 32-gigabyte edition. Those who want to get the edition that offers 64 gigabytes of internal storage will have to fork out $699.
The Nexus 6 is expected to be carried by all four major US wireless carriers (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless). However, as of this writing, there is no official word yet regarding the on-contract pricing of the device.
Those who want to pre-order the Nexus 6 can choose from two available colors for now. There is the midnight blue version, which features a black-colored back cover and a blue-colored metal frame. Then there is the cloud white version, which sports a white-colored rear shell and a silver-colored frame.
Aside from opening pre-orders for the Nexus 6, Google is also offering Google Play Music All Access to all Nexus buyers for six months completely free of charge. However, those who have signed up for Play Music either via trial or by getting a monthly subscription over the last 12 months are not eligible for this offer.
Any Nexus release is typically met with excitement by tech nerds. But it seems that the Nexus 6 is truly an impressive Nexus smartphone. Made by Motorola, the device comes with a 2.7 GigaHertz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor.
It is also fitted with dual camera: a 13-megapixel camera on the rear (with dual LED flash and optical image stabilization), and a 2-megapixel camera on the front.
As mentioned earlier, the device comes in 32 gigabytes or 64 gigabytes of internal storage. Random access memory (RAM) is pegged at 3 gigabytes. A powerful 3,220 mAh battery completes its hardware package.
And of course, let us not forget the enormous 5.9-inch display screen. Among the popular phablet choices out there, the Nexus 6 appears to be the largest. It certainly bests Apple's iPhone 6 Plus (5.5 inches) and Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 (5.7 inches) in terms of screen size. And it does not hurt that the Nexus 6 has a super-sharp Quad HD display. The large screen size may be a lot to handle if you do not have Kawhi Leonard hands, but the ultra-sharpness should be reason enough to not mind two-handed use. Besides, a lot of consumers today seem to be more accepting of super-sized smartphones.
Lastly, the Nexus 6 also comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop, the latest version of the Android mobile operating system. Not only will buyers enjoy the Nexus 6's features, but will also be one of the first users to experience the latest Android OS.
