The Google Nexus 6P is powered by Huawei and arrives on the scene as a more manageable device. Other than that, it has plenty of style to go around. During the time Google announced the Nexus 6 last year, it was taken with mixed emotions. It was fairly large as it went with a 6-inch frame. Google has taken note of this when they designed the 6P as this new iteration lost some of its weight. More accurately speaking, it lost a bit with regards to its width.
Getting to Know the Google Nexus 6P
The Google Nexus 6P comes with a 5.7-inch display, which brings it into alignment with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+. Still, it’s about 0.2-inches larger than the iPhone 6 Plus. Aside from the change in size, the famous search engine also decided to make Huawei the manufacturer of the 6P instead of Motorola.
Taking a look at the Nexus 6P and its display, it certainly is sharp. It has an AMOLED display screen that packs a pretty decent resolution of 1,440 x 2,560. The display also delivers a 518ppi pixel density. The phone is backed with 2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 octa-core processor, a more than satisfactory 3,450mAh battery, and a very decent 3GB of RAM.
Unlike other smartphones in the market, interested people who want to purchase the 6P can choose from three models which all differ in internal storage. They can choose between a 32GB, 64GB, or a 128GB model. Sadly, all variants do not have a microSD card slot so you have to make do with whatever storage capacity is inside the handset. But the good news is that Huawei didn’t design a 16GB model, which many find to be excruciatingly hard to work with.
The 6P also runs with the latest Android operating system, which is Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This promises a slew of new features, which includes Now on Tap. This functionality offers relevant contextual information about apps, people, and places as they appear on the phone. In other areas, Google has made vast improvements regarding security and privacy as there are new security features thrown into the mix. These include the fingerprint unlock and the streamlined app permission model.
Aside from all these specs and features, the Google Nexus 6P comes with a 12.3-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel camera at the front for those “selfie-eccentric” individuals. All of these great features comes with a reasonable price that won’t let customers break the bank.
