When Google released their first Nexus phone in 2010, it began a trend of showing what Android was capable of as a mobile operating system. This move also showed that you could buy a phone with impressive hardware and it wouldn’t cost you as much as the flagship devices other competitors were selling. Since the first Nexus phone was released there have been many iterations that followed, with the most recent being the Nexus 6P. In this article we will cover some of the new features that the 6P brings to the mobile world.
The Nexus 6P is comprised of an all-aluminum build that is beginning to become much more common in smartphone design. On the back side, it features a lightning-fast fingerprint reader that can be used to secure your phone and can also be used to open certain applications. Improvements have also been made in the 6P speakers, with the common single (mono) speaker found on many smartphones today being replaced by two front-facing stereo speakers that have impressive sound quality.
As for the hardware inside, the processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 which provides a snappy experience in the new Android Marshmallow operating system featured on this phone. There is also a 12.3 MP rear camera with laser-assisted focus, an 8 MP front-facing camera, a beautiful 5.7” 2560 x 1440 518ppi AMOLED display, a 3450mAh battery, an Adreno 430 GPU for the graphics processing, 3GB of LPDDR4 memory, and three storage sizes to choose from (32/64/128GB – none of which have expandable storage).
