Earlier this afternoon I posted the full specs of the Nexus 5X and now its time to tell you about the Nexus 6P. The Nexus 6P is the larger of the two devices, coming in with a display of 5.7″ and is expected to be announced be available for purchase tomorrow at the Google event in San Francisco. The 6P is expected to start at $499.99 and will be the first Nexus device to offer 128GB of on-board storage should you want to go that route. The Nexus 6P certainly has the specs of a flagship but like the 5x, there are some things that make me scratch my head a bit.
The Nexus 6P will come with a QuadHD 1440 x 2560 5.7″ display that will give you approximately 515 PPI. That is outstanding and will certainly make it very easy to view the device for long
periods of time comfortably. It will be covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and will have a fingerprint resistant coating. Powering the 6P will be the Snapdragon 810 processor coupled with the Adreno 430 GPU. It will have 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM and will have storage options of 32, 64 and 128GB on board. Like the Nexus 5X, there will not be an expansion MicroSD slot on the Nexus 6P.
The rear camera will be a 13MP f/2.0 shooter and like the 5X, will not have Optical Image Stabilization. The front shooter will be a 5MP f/2.2 with both being able to shoot 1080p video (the rear camera will also shoot 4K)
There is no real surprises in the Nexus 6P from a sensor or connectivity perspective. It supports Bluetooth 4.1 LE, Wi-Fi 082.11ac, USB Type-C connector, Accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity and barometer sensors. It will of course support NFC for Android Pay.
Like the 5X, the Nexus 6P will not have OIS which is a bit disappointing, especially at this price point, and will not support wireless charging. The battery is a 3600mAh battery which should be plenty of juice for the day, especially with the new Doze feature in Marshmallow.
The Nexus 6P is expected to be announced and available for sale tomorrow exclusively through the Google Store.
