Huawei-built Nexus 6P will come with mega battery, Snapdragon 810, and metal unibody build
More details have emerged surrounding Google’s next Nexus devices, revealing them to be some of the most powerful smartphones around at this time.
Tech blog Android Police has revealed the contents of an internal Google presentation that reveals information on the Nexus 6P, the larger of two devices from the company which is set to be made by Chinese manufacturer Huawei.
Google is due to unveil both new Nexus devices (with the smaller, LG-made Nexus 5X completing the line-up) at an event in San Francisco tomorrow (September 29).
According to the leak, the Nexus 6P (pictured left) will feature a huge 3,450mAh battery, giving it more power than almost any other smartphone on the market today, and marking a major step up from the 3,220mAh battery in the previous Nexus 6 smartphone.
The Nexus 6P will be powered by the v2.1 version of Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 810 processor, which features improved cooling among a couple of other tweaks, backed up with 3GB of RAM, and run Android Marshmallow, the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system.
The 5.7in device will be built with a metal unibody design and feature a QHD AMOLED 2560×1440 display, giving it crystal-clear visuals, and will weigh just 178g, making it lighter than the Nexus 6.
Elsewhere, there’s a 12.3MP rear camera, which might seem a bit underwhelming, but will feature a 1.55 μM pixel sensor, putting it right at the top end of the power stakes. There’s also a fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C port, and will be available in Aluminium, Graphite, and Frost colours (along with a special Gold design that’s exclusive to Japan for the time being), in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB storage options.
Google’s event kicks off at 4.30pm BST tomorrow, when hopefully all of these details will be confirmed – so stay tuned for more details.
