Motorola Nexus 6 Specs:

The device has a 6-inch  2560 x 1440 pixel Amoled capacitive touchscreen display, ~493 ppi pixel density. The display also has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, multi-touch and 16M colors.

Behind the amazing screen, the phone packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset with 3GB of RAM and a 2.65GHz quad-core Krait 450 CPU. Needles to say it has all the important sensors as well: accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass and barometer.

There are two options for internal storage: 32GB and 64GB, but, unfortunately, the possibility of extending it with a microSD card is not provided.

Nexus 6 features a 13 MP, 4128 x 3096 pixels main camera, with autofocus, optical image stabilization, and dual-LED flash. The video quality is not bad either: [email protected] For the front, we have a 2MP camera (sorry, selfie-lovers).

After the microSD slot missing, we have another Apple-ish feature: the battery is not user replaceable. However, the 3,220mAh unit has Turbocharging, meaning you can get 6 hours of usage after just 15 minutes of charging.

The device is available in two colors: Midnight Blue and Cloud White.

Pre-orders are starting on October 29th and the prices are as follows: for a  base 32GB  you will have to put down $649, and for the 64GB version $699.

The phablet will be sold by T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, US Cellular and Sprint. We know that T-Mobile will have it available on November 12th, but we don’t know for sure if this is the release date for all the carriers in the US or not.
