Galaxy Nexus 6 is expected to hit the shelves in November 2014. Its predecessor 16GB Nexus 5 was launched with a price tag of USD349 , and it is expected that the Nexus 6 would fall in the same price range.
However, contrary to the Nov 2014 release reports, some persistent reports in the past have revealed that the Nexus 6 launch may not happen at all as the company is presently focusing on a project dubbed as Android Silver.
It was also rumored earlier that the company will get away with the Nexus line of products upon the execution of Android Silver, which Google is targeting to achieve in 2015. This information was also confirmed by Tech blogger Eldar Murtazin that Google would retire the Nexus brand in coming years.
Keeping all the rumors aside, let’s take a look at the speculated features and specifications of the Nexus 6.
The Nexus 6 is believed to be launched as the first device to be powered by the next version of Google’s operating system. However, it is still unclear that the advanced operating system will be dubbed as Android 5 or Android 4.5.
The Google Nexus 6 is also 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 and 3 GB RAM. The handset is believed to be launched in the 32 GB/64 GB/128 GB storage versions.
Also, the device is expected to sport a curved screen display as introduced by Samsung and LG in some of their products, including Samsung Galaxy Round and LG G Flex, respectively. The smartphone would also feature a metal casing, which could give it an edge among the Android-based smartphones.
