Nexus 6 Pictured Next to iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Moto X

The Nexus 6 might be official but Google isn’t shipping out its new smartphone just yet. We’re itching to get our hands on that 5.97-inch stock Android phablet, but it looks like at least one T-Mobile employee already has the device. Duan Dao has been showing off his test unit online, offering a first look at how the Nexus 6 measures up next to a few of its direct competitors.

One photo in particular stands out. We see the Nexus 6 placed next to an iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6 and second-generation Moto X. Believe it or not the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus is actually taller than the 5.97-inch Nexus 6, though that might just be due to its protective case. Google’s phone does look noticeably wider. Based on this picture we’d say the new iPhone’s display is also a bit brighter, though the Nexus 6 still offers a way higher resolution.

The Nexus 6 packs a Quad HD AMOLED display, offering 2560 x 1440 pixels at 493ppi. It also comes equipped with a 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, a 3200mAh battery, 3GB of RAM and 32/64GB of storage with no microSD slot. It also features a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter. Dao has also been putting those cameras to work, and you can hit the source link to check out some of the photos he’s uploaded to Google+ for yourself.
