Google latest Smartphone 'Nexus 6P' is one of the highly awaited phone currently. It is co-developed with and marketed by Google Inc. as part of its Nexus line of flagship devices and unveiled on September 29, 2015 along with the Nexus 5X.
The Nexus 6P 6P is the follow up to 6 inch Nexus 6. However, It has a smaller 5.7in screen, which makes it significantly easier to handle, while still providing a big-screen experience.
The all-metal and glass phablet has a plain front – a glass screen with a pair of stereo front-facing speakers at the top and bottom and a notification light in the top left.
The Nexus 6P has a Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor with 3 GB of RAM, and either 32, 64, or 128 GB of internal storage. The battery has a 3450 mAh capacity and uses a USB Type-C connector for charging. This enables it to charge twice as fast as the iPhone 6S Plus. The camera modules are made by Sony (Sony ExmorR IMX 377). The rear facing one has 12.3 megapixels with an f/2.0 aperture, and laser autofocus. The sensor has 1.55 micron pixels which assist photography in low light conditions. It will be capable of 4K resolution video recording, as well as slow-motion video capture, at 240 fps. The front facing camera has 8 megapixels and an f/2.4 aperture.
The 5.7in 2K AMOLED screen is one of the best available. With a pixel density of 518 pixels per inch, it’s easily one of the sharpest, and at phablet size the differences are noticeable. The Nexus 6P’s screen matches that of the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and surpassing Apple’s iPhone 6S Plus, which has 401ppi.
The front-facing speakers are some of the best Sound speakers. They are loud, clear and sound even better when the phone is placed on table or desk screen-side up.
