Check out the Nexus 6P!

Google has officially taken the wraps off of their new Nexus smartphone, the 6P. Just like the leaks say, the 6P is a Huawei-built device, sporting what Google says is “aeronautical-grade aluminum”, and obviously Android Marshmallow. Let’s take a look at the specs:

Google Nexus 6P

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 octa-core processor
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 5.7-inch AMOLED QHD display, Gorilla Glass 4 protection, 2560 x 1440 resolution
  • 32GB, 64GB, 128GB storage
  • 12.3-megapixel rear camera, 1.55 ?m pixel sensor, f/2.0 aperture, laser AF system
  • 8-megapixel front camera
  • 3G, LTE
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, USB Type C port, fingerprint sensor
  • 3450mAh battery
  • Android 6 Marshmallow
  • 499 USD

Google Nexus 6P

Google and Huawei has spared no expense in making the 6P. First off, the 6P sports a 5.7-inch QHD AMOLED display, and is powered by a new version of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor. 3GB of RAM is on tap, and the phone has a fingerprint scanner on the back to unlock it quickly. While the megapixel count on the rear camera is lower than most other flagships, Google’s 6P uses UltraPixel tech just like HTC’s previous flagships, but obviously the phone now has a higher, 12.3-megapixel count over HTC’s 4. You are trading in OIS capability for that, though Google says that the 6P is more capable in low-light shooting compared to Apple’s iPhone 6S. The camera is also capable of shooting 4K, as well as shooting burst photos at 30 FPS, and slow motion video up to 240 FPS.

Other features include front-facing dual-speakers, USB Type-C port and Quick Charge functionality via Qualcomm. The best part is that the Nexus 6P is retailing in the US for just 499 for the 32GB model (Php 23.4K) and fans in the US will start receiving their phones in October. No word on PH availability as of yet.
