Google has reportedly collaborated with Taiwan-based HTC to manufacture its upcoming flagship smartphone, Nexus 6. The smartphone is likely to resemble the recently launched metallic clad HTC One (M8), which has received worldwide acclaim and is being named as the best designed Android phone ever made.
Tech Times has claimed that Google sidetracked LG and Lenovo, and choose HTC for the manufacturing of its next Nexus device. Meanwhile, it is also rumored that HTC is likely to be manufacturing the 8-inch Nexus 8 tablet as well.
Some reports claim that the Nexus 6 will be launched during the Goggle’s I/0 scheduled to be held on June 24, but the company’s VP Sundar Pichai said during the Mobile World Congress that the device is likely to be announced sometime in October.
The Google Nexus 6 is likely to be equipped with a quad HD screen display with a pixel resolution of 1,440 x 2,560, a 64-bit processor and a 16MP rear camera. It is also expected to be having a 5.2-inch full-HD, curved LCD display, Corning Gorilla Glass, Snapdragon 800-series chipset, 3 GB RAM and 4.5 Lollypop. The handset is believed to be launched in 32 GB/64 GB/128 GB storage versions.
