The Nexus 6P is somehow a successor of the Nexus 6 Phablet, that has been created by Motorola, however, it’s not that large and it’s a beautiful design, that includes a sleek metal body with 2 front-facing speakers. The previous model was rather a XXL version of the Moto X 2014, that includes a curved plastic back with metal sides. This a review of the new Nexus 6P, during which we’ll tell you everything that you just need to understand its specifications and latest features.
Design and Display
The Nexus 6P was released with the Nexus 5X (created by LG), being the first phones to run on the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The 6P device has better specifications than its relative, however, they have in common the new fingerprint scanner, that is placed under the rear camera. Only that the Nexus 5X features an easy plastic body and has smaller dimensions, whereas the Nexus 6P is made of metal and features a black bar running across the upper part of the rear, that contains the camera. There’s another phone with a similar design, ZTE’s Grand S, and this company accused Huawei of stealing the concept from them. Coincidence or not? If you’ll look at each phone, you will see that they are similar and we are starting out to believe that ZTE is right.
Anyway, the 6P comes in 3 variants of colors: Aluminium, Graphite and Frost, its physical dimensions area unit 159.3×77.8×7.3mm and its weight is 178grams. The screen is AMOLED, thus it should to produce vibrant pictures. Its size is 5.7-inch and it’s capable of supporting a QHD resolution of 1440×2560 pixels at 518ppi, that the pictures are pretty sharp and also the brightness is much higher than on the previous Nexus 6, that reached only 260 nits.
The Nexus 6P is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 64bit octa-core processor, that is backed by Adreno 430 graphics and 3GB of RAM. We are curious, however the Snapdragon 810 processor performs within this Nexus device, considering that once the first flagships were launched, their experience serious heating problems. If Qualcomm resolved this drawback, then the processor should be faster. The internal storage is not expandable, however it’s accessible in 3 variants of 32/64/128 GB. The third variant was not accessible on the Nexus 6.
The primary camera doesn’t have a high resolution, supporting 12MP, however it has an aperture of f/2.0 and large 1.55µm pixels, which may capture 90 percent additional light-weight than the previous Nexus 6. Also, Huawei added laser autofocus, that permits the camera to focus much faster, before taking the shot. As for the secondary camera, its resolution is admirable, 8MP, however it is able to record 720p videos at 30fps.
The battery is large, having a capability of 3450mAh, that supports fast charging via the new USB Type-C. The price of the 32GB variant are going to be $499 (unlocked) and also the device can reach the stores within the following days.
