First it was Amazon that jumped the gun with the Nexus 5X, and now it looks like someone couldn’t help but spoil the Nexus 6P. Just days ahead of Google’s Sept. 29 event, a series of presentation slides were uploaded to Imgur, revealing all the details—big and small—of the search giant’s next major flagship. Get excited, because the Nexus 6P is going to be a very big deal.
Up first, we have the device’s specs. OK, so not every single detail is revealed, but all the big selling points are represented. This will be Google’s first metal unibody phone, and it’ll sport a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, Snapdragon 810 processor (version 2.1), front-facing speaker, UCB-C, Android 6.0 and a massive 3450mAh battery. Pair that with a new Marshmallow feature like Doze, and we can expect hours and hours of battery life.
I know people have already bemoaned the Nexus 6P’s design, but I happen to dig it; there’s nothing overly flashy about it, though it uses everyone’s favorite material, metal, giving the device a premium edge. Yeah, that small camera hump isn’t ideal, but if the device shoots excellent images, it really won’t matter.
One of the slides also highlights the fingerprint sensor (well, the Nexus 5X’s, but it’s clearly the same in the Nexus 6P), talking about the convenience and security of the technology. Remember, Marshmallow will natively support fingerprint technology, so we should start seeing many more Android devices with fingerprint sensors, especially now that Android Pay has launched.
Many of the remaining slides talk about some of the biggest features coming to Google’s Android update, including control over app permissions, Doze, and Now on Tap. We also get confirmation that the device will come in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB options, along with mention of silver, black, white and gold colors; the gold will only be available in Japan, however—at least initially.
Despite the frequency of leaks as of late, we’re still pretty excited to see Google’s new Nexus phones. The Nexus 6P is quite clearly the powerhouse between the two, which means it will be the more expensive device. We’ll learn those details, along with a possible release date, next week.
