Google Nexus 6 Release Date: Major Upgrade to Come After Google I/O Event

Google is targeting the US market big time with the upcoming Google Nexus 6. With the Google I/O event set to begin soonGoogle is targeting the US market big time with the upcoming Google Nexus 6. With the Google I/O event set to begin soon, rumors have that Lenovo could make Nexus 6. After acquiring Motorola, this seems like a logical hand-over. Also, buzz points to the Nexus 6 being fed by 64-bit from Qualcomm with octa-core. In addition, a RAM of 3 or 4 GB could add further spark to the Nexus 6.

In terms of shutter, the Nexus 5 will feature 13 MP main clicker with Image Stabilization spec all loaded. In fact, we sniffed chances for Google to punch in a 2-5 MP camera on the front.

Some of the things that bothered the company about Nexus Q were that the device’s OS was such that it required an Android device running Jelly Bean to work, this means that the device could not be used on its own. Furthermore, the device did not offer support for third party media services and video games. Last but not the least, the price at which Google was offering the device was much more compared to devices of other companies.

Keeping all this in mind, the company has decided to make changes in the device and postpone its release. Don’t know if the company is happy about postpone or not.
