Android Police reports that the next Nexus phone, codenamed “Shamu,” is ready to hit retailers with some high-end specifications.
First, the Nexus 6 phone is being manufactured by Motorola (not HTC), which is cool given Moto X’s awesome performance. Second, and perhaps most shocking, is that the Nexus 6 will have a 5.9″ (449 ppi) screen, really giving the phone its “Shamu” moniker. This is definitely the biggest Nexus phone to date. Finally, the new Nexus 6 will feature a 13 MP back camera, dual front speakers, a 3200 mAh battery, and a 2MP front camera. The phone will also run Android 5.0, which is probably a hybrid version of Android L.
So this week’s website poll is whether you’re interested in a Nexus phone this big. Personally, I can see some value in a phone that’s “phablet” size, given the numerous improvements with Android L and some of the Chromecast capabilities. I’m not sure that 6 inches is all too great from a productivity stance — drafting documents on small screens gets difficult — but since a majority of users just play games, check email, and surf around the internet, a 6 inch screen is decent enough.
Are you interested in a 6 inch Nexus phone, but more importantly, will you buy it?
