Nexus 6P: Want to Know Everything About It? Here You Go.

nexus 6p specs

Yesterday morning, someone leaked a Nexus 6P training/reviewing guide to reddit and it contains just about every single detail you could have asked for. Outside of price and the specific launch day (which we think is October 5), we know it all now. This guide is about as detailed as it gets with specs, marketing speak for the camera and fingerprint sensor, and how this phone takes advantage of Android 6.0 features. It’s pretty intense.

Ready to know all there is to know about the Huawei Nexus 6P? 

The device sports an all-metal body for a “sophisticated look and feel,” is “fast and powerful,” and features a big 5.7-inch QHD AMOLED display. The processor inside is indeed a Snapdragon 810, which is joined by a 3450mAh battery, USB Type-C port and charger, and dual front speakers. If you buy the Nexus 6P, you will choose from 32GB, 64GB, or 128GB of storage and colors of Aluminium, Graphite, Frost, and Gold (which may be a Japan exclusive). The rear camera weighs in at 12.3MP (1.55 μM, f/2.0), while the front camera is a 8MP shooter with 1.4 μM.

Speaking of the camera, this is what the presentation had to say about the focus with this Nexus and why this is the best Nexus camera yet:

The Nexus Camera is the best all-around camera we’ve ever put into a Nexus. But where it really shines is in conditions with less-than-ideal lighting. The new sensor captures more light, and the larger 1.55μm pixels absorb more in even the dimmest conditions to make your photos sharp. With a faster Google Camera app, you never miss a moment, and with the smart Google Photos app, your memories are easy to relive.

Great camera is the most desired feature for our users, and a key area for Android and Nexus.

Taking great photos in good light is relatively easy and something most smartphone camera do really well. Where it gets hard is low light. 80% of photos are taken in less than ideal light so it is important to really concentrate on that
We see the most challenging common photography use case is trying to take a quick snap of a kid and we have made a bunch of decisions to excel in such challenging scenarios.

Why is such situation challenging: app has to launch fast and be fast, AF needs to focus quickly and accurately, need to be very sensitive to light to catch a moving subject, and mostly such cases you have to capture as much detail as possible in most times challenging light conditions.

I know I mentioned that we don’t know the price, but this presentation does say that the Nexus 6P “will generally be less expensive than the iPhone 6+.” Tough to tell if that means by $10 or $100 or more, but that’s at least somewhat of a good note.

Outside of that stuff, Google is expecting this phone to have battery that lasts you into the night, but can quick charge through its USB Type-C port anyway, will be all sorts of awesome on a software front, thanks to Google Now on Tap and Android 6.0, will be plenty powerful and efficient, and use one of the quickest fingerprint sensors in the business.

This should get you excited for Tuesday morning’s event.

Below, we have the specs in a chart, a gallery of some fresh photos, and a few of the slides from the presentation. If you want to read every little word that is included, hit up the source links. It’s quite a bit of info.

  • editorinchimp

    It is tempting, but after listing the pros and cons of each, I am leaning towards the Moto X Pure because of the expandable storage, customization, lower price, Motorola care (fair price and low deductibles), and the added Moto features. 32 gigs is adequate for apps, system files, photos, but not music, videos, comics, etc.

    The 6P, on the other hand, is a nexus, has a larger battery, metal body, fingerprint scanner, and guaranteed updates.

    For cons, the Pure has an unproven update track record, mediocre battery, and questionable low light camera. The 6P costs more, lacks expandable storage, uses ISB type C, and has those distractingly large bezels and that black bar on the back.

    • Mike

      The only thing appealing to me about the 6P is it’s A Nexus. Giant bezels horrible design and no sd card. That being said I’ll probably buy one because I like having multiple phones.

  • Bootleg Zani

    Moto X PE is dead to me. Nexus 6P it is. In Graphite with 128 GB.

  • chris_johns

    not for nothing…its better than what i first thought of it…but still i dunno…if im going 5.7″ why wouldnt i go for a moto xp for 399? its a better more trusty manufacturer, better looking, and has those extra features i love…and im sure itll get marshmallow very soon…i dunno its a hard choice…i wish the x5 was better man i really do i hate these big phones

    • capncoad

      beefier CPU, metal unibody is nice, they are hinting at a superior camera, fingerprint reader. Timely updates.

      • chris_johns

        Honestly dont care nor will use a fingerprint scanner…like the moto x body better and i there isnt to big a dif btwn the 808 and 810 and camera is fine on the x

        • Mike

          You’d never notice the difference between the 808 and 810 unless you walk around holding two phones that are running the same apps at the same time.

      • Mike

        The timely updates really isn’t that big of deal. At least not for me. Moto will have much less bugs around a month later. Especially now they bypassed the carriers

  • VwRob

    I woukd never buy Lg or an Huawei phone. Pure junk !! Moto build quality surpasses them any day

    • JRomeo

      except, until, of course Huawei surpasses Moto and builds a metal chassis high class phone such as the Nexus 6P, and Moto keeps building plastic eggshell phones (not to say they aren’t nice, last year’s Nexus6 was like that and it was nice), but its good to know that Huawei stepped it up and build a high class metal frame on the Nexus6P

      • illregal

        Just being metal, doesn’t mean its high class.. Samsung isn’t all of a sudden high class now that they have a metal rim. and huwaei isn’t either.

        • JRomeo

          It’s high-class because its a Nexus….. Nexus has a certain air of cachet missing from other phones

          • Mike

            Amongst android super users yes but that’s it

      • Mike

        Metal doesn’t mean high class, and you’ve never held or used it so who are you to say?

  • U Mad Bro? No But Your Mom Is

    Me likey…me wanty.

  • schex13

    I’m getting more and more tempted by the second. Do you guys think I could get $175-200 for a 32gb Nexus 5 in great shape on Swappa after the 6P is released? That’d help offset some of the cost of this thing.

    • Nick

      With the flood of 5’s that are sure to hit the market, I’d wager $150 is more likely if you want it sold fast

  • litobirdy

    8mp front shooter? wow

  • Mordecaidrake

    Still ugly 🙁

  • MichaelFranz

    As much as I want to jump the gun. I need 2 things. A few review from notable tech blog sites (looking at you DL!!). Second is to actually see the unit hands on. I hope best buys will get the unit in stock in those small google experience shop set ups they have.

  • Ivo Shandor

    no wireless charging because of the all metal body (not a huge issue for me, just curious)? And what about OIS on the camera? OIS is crucial for a good all around camera experience on a phone IMO. One of the few things I liked about my wife’s G2.

    • kirko77

      Didn’t Qualcomm recently develop wireless charging tech that works through metal?

      • Mike

        Yeah

  • Synacks

    Still wondering about the 5X camera

  • This is why I bought the Moto X Pure from amazon, the return policy is crazy simple and fast.

  • JB

    Does anyone know if a Nexus on Verizon gets updates from Google or is the Nexus updated from Verizon? If the updates comes from Verizon, are they delayed several months like other phones?

    • Tony G.

      I bought my N6 from Motorola and use it on Verizon. The updates I’ve gotten (2) came from Google. They would only download via wifi because I had the VZW sim in the phone.

      • JB

        Good to know. Thanks.

        • Tony G.

          Sure. Good luck with your choice.

  • Jprime

    Am I the only one who doesnt care about usb type c (yet anyway)…I wouldnt want to buy all new chargers…I have them everywhere….2 cars, bedroom, travel bag, work…

    • T_Dizzle

      Definitely something to consider budget wise.

    • kirko77

      You don’t need new charges, just the cable.
      And I will gladly swap my cables for type-c that doesn’t care about orientation

  • How good is the Snapdragon 810 v2.1? You know after all the hell they caught when the 810 was melting phones….

    • illregal

      It’s the same. But more neutered. So… it’s actually worse.

    • Mike

      Throttled down. Not much better than the 808.

  • MadJoe

    It looks like they steamrolled over an HTC RE camera and said “Looks good, make that a phone”.

  • Cheap and powerful device, system requirements are quite good for example by it you can manage even Securitas Epay account http://bit.ly/1Fv8Fmd

  • Fred Johansen

    Meh. Waste of screen real estate, on screen keys, massive bezels.

    • Bobb

      smh

      • Mike

        Smh what? Everyone bitches about the bezels in HTC phones. But this is a Nexus so it’s excused? Smh

  • Jeff “BIG RED”

    OK OK, the real question is… WILL IT BEND???? JK SERIOUSLY WILL IT WORK ON VZW???

    • T_Dizzle

      Yes, it will. Just in case you hadn’t heard already.

      • Jeff “BIG RED”

        Cool thanks.

  • alberteezy

    Agh this phone is beast and getting me hyped, but why does it have to be huge?! x(
    I mean I’m willing to try it..but why?!

  • Mickey A Valentine

    Some translation issues in that camera statement, hm.

  • catfanatic1979

    I like the metal unibody and large battery.

  • Sam

    I’m going against the grain here, but I’m pissed they’re going with AMOLED. I was hoping for LCD especially since up until this point Huawei almost never used AMOLED in any of their phones.

    I’ve had terrible experiences with AMOLED. Screen burn-in and grainy/fuzzy look of AMOLED screens just made me despise it (how does it not for other people?).

    I really don’t understand this obsession the Android community has with AMOLED.

    • Me

      I prefer LCD over Amoleds too just because of the saturation. Hopefully this panel is better than the N6.

    • Mike

      Samsung amoled is the only good amoled panel.

  • AndTheWorldMayNeverKnow

    Waiting for Sept. 29th before I get too excited but this seems to be the phone I’ve been waiting on. Going to pick up the Moto 360 Sport then a tablet at the end of the year then I’m cool on gadgets for a while. I wonder if they are going to continue with the Nexus 9 tablet or move on to something else, either way I’m looking forward to announcements this week.

  • jay

    I’m all in on the 6P

  • interstellarmind

    f2.0?? How is that a better camera??

    These nexuses are epic fails.

    • Mike

      Yeah that isn’t a good aperture

      • Me

        What phones besides Samsung & LG have better apertures?

        • Defenestratus

          Nevermind.

  • Champion1229

    Looks like the design team took some big hints from the Droid Razr.

  • youdoneyo69

    Does it have turbo charging?

  • pookietookie

    LED light?

    • Droider

      +1
      would like to know that too, i miss that feature

  • Joe

    Does it have NFC?

    • Evans Boyle

      With Marshmallow and Android Pay, it will most certainly have NFC

  • ROB

    She has a butter face

  • Justin Larmay

    Am I the only one that thinks this thing has a TON of bezel on the top and bottom? Other than that it seems great.

    • Defenestratus

      To quote the donald “that thing is terrible.. look at it… who would want bezels that yuuuge?”

  • DJyoSNOW

    I’m just hella nervous about the camera. Which I had thought never turns out to be above average on these phones? Otherwise wise I’m in. Especially for front facing speakers!

  • Tom S

    Am I the only one that doesn’t feel like this is a big upgrade from the Moto Nexus 6?

    • PoisonApple31

      Probably. That black bar on the back is ugly. I’m sticking with my Nexus 6.

      • hkklife

        Uglier, bigger bezels, smaller screen and no Qi wireless charging. I will take a clearance priced N6 and wait til next year. What I REALLY want is a N9 refresh with 64GB, Type C etc.

        • Defenestratus

          Wait. No Wireless charging?

          WHAT IS COMING OF THIS WORLD?

          Its 2015!!! Wires are not required anymore!!!

  • Cnote11

    So is this officially the death of SD cards in Android devices?

    • PoisonApple31

      lol what?

      • Cnote11

        Maybe I’m missing something, but it doesn’t look like there’s an SD slot in the 6P. If the Nexus phones are Google’s “guidance” to Android phone manufacturers, and Samsung already ditched the SD card, then it seems we can expect most/all future phones to lack SD support. I know many don’t care, but I hate having to pay another $100 or $200 for a phone with more storage when I already have a perfectly good SD card.

        • Bobb

          There hasn’t been a SD card in a Nexus in 5 years

        • Justin Hatfield

          I understand exactly where you are coming from, but maybe Nexus devices are not for you then. Not a single one has had a micro sd card slot. At least Android provides a ton of options, I’m sure you could find another great phone to fit your needs.

          • Tony G.

            This may be a go for me, and my decision will be 64 or 128, probably depending on the price. I don’t load a lot but want more than 32.

          • Justin Hatfield

            Same here. Had to settle on a 32GB Nexus 6 due to the limited availability last year. Let’s hope the 128GB is relatively affordable.

        • PoisonApple31

          Okay – now your post makes sense to me. Nexus devices never have SD card slots – and although Google may have wanted SD card slots dead at a point in the past – they haven’t died and they will not die because of these two new Nexus devices.

  • The Doctor

    That black bar on the back of the phone is hideous.

    No thanks.

    • ScoobySnack

      So get the black colored phone- then everything is black.

      • Tony G.

        I think that will be my color choice.

  • netanil

    With the Snapdragon 820 just around the corner it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to give this a premium price. Or more importantly, buy it at a premium price.

    • editorinchimp

      It will drop a couple hundred bucks on Swappa by January.

      • turdbogls

        thats what I’m hoping for. holding onto my OnePlus one for another few months. by February it should be at a decent price. maybe even new ones will get a price drop.

        plus, by then, I should know what to expect. it’ll be hard not buying it day one, but my OPO has suited me well and should be fine for another 4-5 months.

    • ScoobySnack

      You do know the Snapdragon 830 will be announced right after the 820 is actually put into shipped devices? Yes, I get what you’re saying, but it’s still dumb.

  • Mike

    It’s a nice phone that 99% of people don’t care about. Not because it isn’t great but because there is zero attempt to market it, which I think is a bummer because people would get to see true Android.

    • catfanatic1979

      Google likes to spend money making nexus phones so they can never sell them. It is insane and pointless.

  • Hugh Hansen

    They went into pretty deep detail about the camera but didn’t mention OIS, which is worrisome.

    • jagema

      If this is the same camera as their Mate S, and it should be, then it would be equipped: “13MP with AF, BSI, F2.0, OIS, Dual color-temp LED flashes.”

      • Hugh Hansen

        According to Wikipedia, the sensor in the Mate S is the Sony IMX278, which is 1/3.06″ with pixels 1.12 microns. That would be different from the camera mentioned in the leak above.

  • daniel alcina

    Yeah an AMOLED display!… but what is the 810 version 2.1?!

    • Mike

      Amoled doesn’t mean great. The nexus 6 amoled panel was bleh

      • daniel alcina

        But the Mate S AMOLED display is very good, the 6P display should be even better with 1440p.

  • Travillion

    They are listing the camera as being 12.3 MP, and refer to “Nexus Camera”–I wonder if their description will apply to the 5X as well.

  • AngryBadger

    Hmm, I’ll have to wait for the camera tests. Sounds great and all but you know… everyone says their camera is great and nexus line definitely doesn’t have a good history.

    • jagema

      You can just go ahead and say it. The Nexus line has a terrible history.

  • Francesco Vaccarella

    This guy is a straight beast. Let’s see the prices now…

  • editorinchimp

    Battery size sounds adequate and the specs sound great. If it’s not too expensive, I may get one.

  • Me

    The 810 makes me kinda cautious about buying this. But the rest of the specs are muy bien.

  • ragnarok180

    5.7 inch screen… As a Nexus 6 user I’ve always complained about the size of the phone. Really, its my ONLY complaint about it. Any body else think this might be an acceptable screen size? This is starting to shift my attention from the 5x.

  • mcdonsco

    So, it will be bank…got it. Pass

    Just ordered a MXPE even though I generally despise the lack of wireless charging; the 5x specs/price etc may get me to lean that way, though I don’t really like the pics I’ve seen of it this far.

  • ChrisI

    That camera hump is all sorts of minimized now. Looks amazing.

  • Ajmcnicol

    Once again ill be passing on this….which i HATE. I want a nexus device so bad…but the issue isnt the camera…its the camera APP.
    The AOSP camera app google makes is so basic. Its lacking a very critical, often used, not-a-gimmick feature many people use (pets, kids, sports, etc..). BURST MODE.

    People say use a 3rd party app…but thats not an option. They arent as stable, their burst usually takes low res photos in order to do it fast, or simply does a slow automatic snap thats the same speed as me pushing the snap button myself.

    The OEM camera apps, like LG, HTC, Samsung are integrated deep into the OS via APIs and calls…and thus take super fast 10+ a second FULL rez burst shots.

    Some people may not care. This is a feature that is def a deal breaker for me.

  • Droider

    I’m surprised no one commented on the size. 159.4mm tall?? Thats 6mm taller then the moto x pure, and its 3mm wider.

    This is a crazy tall phone. I wish it wasnt so big

    • PoisonApple31

      0.1mm taller than the Moto Nexus 6. Definitely a big phone!

      • hkklife

        Ugh. They could (and should) have aqueezed a 6″ screen into that formfactor.

    • jagema

      Dual front facing speakers will do that to a phone’s height :/

      • illregal

        The motox he was comparing it to… HAS front facing stereo speakers. So no.

  • Allan

    Has there been any info regarding a notification light on either the 5X or 6P?

    • Justin Hatfield

      I keep wondering the same thing. It sure looks like there might be room for it this year as opposed to the Nexus 6. I still can’t believe more people aren’t interested in that. I would love to see the Nexus 4/5 style customizable LED return. Fingers crossed!

  • Rondogg96

    Damn, it’s a toss up between this and the Moto X Pure for me.

  • liquidamber5

    Like everything except the fingerprint sensor being on the back.

  • John Smith

    My guess is it will be priced just like the OG Nexus 6 was at intro – 32GB at $650. When they talk about the iPhone 6+ price they are talking about the intro pricing ie $749 for a 16GB IMO. Hope for the best BUT expect the 32GB at $650 IMO. Google has set the pricing bar with the OG Nexus 6. The days of low cost Nexus flagship are over. If you want the bargain economy model get the Nexus 5X which will prob be $350 for smaller-GB just like the OG Nexus 5.

  • BOB Dudek

    The best phoney of the year..that nobody under 33 will know about!!

    • raazman

      I will 😉

  • Cameron Laudick

    Absolutely buying this! so pumped

  • jbdan

    This thing is gorgeous looking. I think they’re really knocking it out of the park with the looks of both new Nexus

  • Jason Bittner

    Qi?

    • jbdan

      Doubtful

      • Jason Bittner

        That sucks, I am heavily invested into Qi charging with 4 chargers in the house, 1 at work, and 1 in the car. I also have a LG G3 with Qi back, and an LG G4 with 3 backs all with Qi stickers. I can not buy a device without Qi now.

  • Arturo Burciaga

    Looks like an am awesome phone! I’ll let my nexus 5 and iPhone 6+ hold me up until next September and get this when the price goes down

  • ajftl250

    TAKE MY MONEY NOW

  • catpunt

    No wireless charging = no deal

    • raazman

      Doesn’t the 810 have support for WiPower?

      • Me

        Yup. So it could maybe possibly almosty have wireless charging.

        • raazman

          Haha, yeah I’m hopeful.

  • Niel Simons

    What networks will it be available for?

    • Brian Cruz

      The 5x passed through FCC sporting bands for all carriers, so I think it’s a safe bet that the 6P will have the same also.

  • AvalancheRyder

    So even though Google is somewhat changing their stance on MicroSD expansion, neither Nexus will come with a MicroSD slot?

    • Brian Cruz

      Yeah. I don’t think either one has it. I wish they did though

    • catfanatic1979

      It is protest worthy.

  • capncoad

    Love what they are saying about the camera. Talking about sensor size. Photographers know it’s all about dat sensor in dim rooms. Of course we take lots of pictures in dim rooms. Top that off with 12MP which will absorb more light per pixel, and the camera software. This has the potential to be a monster camera.

    And dat battery? dat battery? that’s all day right there with that size. Very impressive.

    Everything is impressive with the P outside of the questionable look on the back. I suspect pricing of $500 for the base? I don’t know if they’ll go the Nexus 6 route with pricing. I think they want to keep it low.

    • Me
      • Adam

        Any word on OIS. Didn’t see anything within the article or would OIS not be part of the sensor?

        • mikexilva

          Since there is a camera bumb I would think it has OIS, but there’s also no mention of phase detection auto focos also..

          • Ben van Broekhuijsen

            I wouldn’t be shocked if AGAIN another manufacturer dares to spoil the phone by not offering OIS.

            I was completely willing to buy a Moto X, but no OIS and so no deal. No matter how big the pixels are, without OIS, the pictures taken in the dark are of a lot lesser quality. I find this more important than looks or aluminium casing etc.

            Get the damn camera right and they will get my money. If not, I might change to the Lumia 950 XL and say goodbye to Android for once and for all.

        • Me

          I’m guessing it would include it. I don’t think Google would go backwards on that.

        • JamJamBoom

          A guy who has access to a leaked system image confirms ois

          http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=62894934&postcount=6

    • Mike

      The aperture size is the same as the Moto X. LG and Samsung still have it beat in that department.

    • ErikRP

      My guess is the price will be about $100 more than you’re guessing. The line, “the Nexus 6P “will generally be less expensive than the iPhone 6+” leaves a lot of room for a high price. That quote to me says the pricing will be comparable to a 6+ and that’s pretty much one of if not the most expensive phone on the market.

  • Paul

    Am I the only one that enjoys finding out things without the leaks? I really enjoyed it when they announced things without any major leaks.

    • Mike

      I’m on the same boat.

    • MaxPower27

      Ditto here.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      That hasn’t happened in years.

  • callumshell1

    So it’s expensive and ugly. No thanks.

    • BAM1789

      Since we know the price right?

      • callumshell1

        the Nexus 6P “will generally be less expensive than the iPhone 6+.”

        This means it’s gonna be pretty expensive. They wouldn’t have picked the most expensive phone you can buy if it weren’t.

      I fell sorry for you,this chinese thing will never become popular in the US even with nexus brand, the moto x is cheap and so much better design

    • Mike

      You do realize that every single phone of the flagship level is fast right? You’d never be able to tell the difference between them unless you held them side by side. That being said if this is priced right II just might buy it. It’ll be one of the only phones I’ll put a case on though, damn it’s ugly

  • Tyler Durden
    • Brendon

      HAHAHA no,x pure is so much better.

      • Tyler Durden

        Okay Moto Fanboy, I’ll be over here with better build quality, native Nexus support, bigger battery, more storage, and a better processor.

        • And a lot more money… You seem to forget, this is on par price wise most likely with Samsung.

          • Tyler Durden

            We’ll see about cost, I doubt it’ll be much more. Even if it is, it’s worth it over the Pure.

          • Brendon

            Never hater

          • h_f_m

            How can anyone even start to sound authoritative about price when no one knows ANYTHING about price yet?

          • If you’re bragging about it being cheaper than an iPhone 6+, i’s likely just under that price. Otherwise they would have used another example that was cheaper.

          • h_f_m

            So yeah.. $499 for 32GB… that’s significantly cheaper..

          • Yup, but I’m not complaining!

        • Brendon

          Snaphot 810 HAHAHA you are a joke man makes me laugh.

          • Tyler Durden

            Brendon, I feel bad you have down syndrome. I’ll make a donation in your name.

          • Brendon

            Cry more hater nothing you say will affect me.

          • Tyler Durden

            Not crying, but take Moto’s dick out of your mouth for a second if that’s possible.

          • Brendon
          • Tyler Durden

            You’re as bad as Sarge/Bionic and Godzilla.

          • Brendon

            I ask your opinion??? Go suck a dick in the cabaret your call house.

          • ROB

            now that is pulling one out from the past

          • MaxPower27

            If nothing else, the 810 has a much better GPU than the 808. That’s not an insignificant detail.

        • illregal

          Build quality is going to be very questionable. It is a Huwaei after all. King of cheap. Moto has an sd card slot… So storage isn’t an issue. And the 810 processor is a joke. And it’s more expensive. I don’t see this being any better. I bet the camera is worse on the nexus, and the battery life isn’t any better. So you really just have nexus 3rd party support as the one thing.

    • Cael

      the specs are great but it’s still ugly :

      • Tyler Durden

        all phones are ugly = problem solved

        • Cael

          all phone aren’t ugly.

      • StevieV

        Which phone do you consider pretty?

        • Mike

          Note 5, S6, S6 Edge +, iPhone 6s, Moto X Pure, One Plus two. In my opinion.

    • Mike

      If you are talking about sales no it won’t. Nexus devices never outsell anything.

      • hkklife

        The N7 2012 did but that is about the only time.

    • Me

      It does look a lot better than previous leaks. Aluminum or Black look the best to me.

  • wills96

    That camera hump tho… Ugh. And still only a battery that gets us into the night?? Wtf do they ever listen?

    • Tyler Durden

      it’s only a couple mm, it’s not really a bump

    • h_f_m

      It’s so tiny, it looks like it’s even less of a “hump” than most normal small round camera protrusions.

  • Aaron T

    If the camera is as good as they claim and the battery is legit I might get it. I love my S6 camera but the battery is awful lately.

  • Stephen

    I have my bamboo and metallic silver Moto X Pure in cart. Guess I’ll wait to see price of this first.

  • digitalicecream

    This or the Moto X Pure? Do you think the 6P stands a chance to come in under $449 for 32g?

    • Brendon

      X Pure is better

    • Me

      Nah this will at least be $599.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Not a chance in hell. That’s where the 5X 32GB will land.

  • Remember when they showed Romain Guy taking breathtaking shots with the Galaxy Nexus?

    Fool me once, Google.

  • opustv

    OK…take my money!

  • edwoordd

    I’m getting this! Maybe 2 . I already have a Nexus 6 though I need more😈😈😈😈😈

  • TheRobotCow

    Hmm…… This or the Moto X Pure edition. Price might be the defining factor. Let’s see what Google shows on Tuesday.

    • Lazy Tango

      On the same boat.

  • Lazy Tango

    Cheaper than the iPhone isn’t really saying much… Totally torn between the Moto X, N5X and N6P.

    • Tyler Durden

      with it being $650 now for the base model, it could mean anything

      • AdamJay

        the 6S Plus is $750 for the base model

    • Greyhame

      I’m torn as well. Currently have an S6, so losing wireless charging and a finger print sensor would sort of hurt. But with the X, you get to customize your look, add a micro SD card, and take advantage of the best UX on a phone. Damn. Decisions, decisions.

      • Lazy Tango

        I have the Moto X 2014 and have been loving what Moto did with Android. Twist for camera and Assist would be hard to say goodbye to.

        • richkoos

          I’m having the same issue! I love the twist for camera, and chop for flashlight, but these aren’t too big of issues. That god damn moto display, I don’t think I could leave waving my hand over the phone to see notifications. ARGGG decisions, decisions.

    • h_f_m

      I agree. EVERY phone is cheaper than iPhone. Is there a phone (aside from those crazy expensive rare luxury ones like Ferrari branded or Vertu) that is more expensive than an iPhone if bought outright?

      • steve30x

        according to Verizon wireless buying the iPhone 6 plus outright is twenty bucks cheaper than galaxy s6 edge+

        • h_f_m

          That is kind of crazy. Wouldn’t expect that.

        • h4rr4r

          The 6 plus is a year old. What about the 6S plus?

          • steve30x

            If you walk into Verizon and want to buy outright according to their website : iPhone 6s+ is. 749 and galaxy s6 edge 768.. I forgot to mention 6s plus.. Left out the “s”

      • Aaron C

        Turing Dark Wyvern. Just preordered it. If the Nexus phones are abandoning Qi charging, there’s no reason for me to stick with them.

    • Scott

      I just got the Moto X Pure. It rocks on the T-Mobile network!!

      • ajftl250

        meeeh

      • Gmax Mo bay

        Just got mine 3 days ago, trying to figure out how to get the Nexus 6P now..

        • Mech_Engr_09

          return it and get the 6P. Don’t waste all that money on phones man.

          • Mike

            Some people have the extra money to do that. I have multiple phones. I enjoy switching between a few phones.

          • Mech_Engr_09

            you would have to make a lot of money to really justify having more than 2 phones. I make close to 90k a year and I would never want to drop what would be more than a thousand dollars to have more than one phone. I mean what’s the point in keeping them if they’re constantly losing value. Having a phone for six months and switching, while making some money selling it on swappa is a smart move, but not having multiple phones at a time.

          • Mike

            I currently have 3 phones. I use them for different reasons. I’m not lacking intelligence because I don’t sell them after 6 months. I guess to each their own, I definitely understand that not everyone would have a few but I know of plenty of people like myself. My old phones like my Nexus 6 and Note 4 go to my daughter and wife so they are still getting plenty of use.

          • Sam Jones

            eh, having a backup comes in handy and you can get decent last gen motorola phones for $100-$200 or freedompop phones for $30

    • steve0617

      Given a 6+ is $749/849/949, that’s not a good sign that the 6P will be much less than $649 (or gasp, $699), $749/$799.

      • The 6+ is actually 649/749/849. The 6s+ is $100 more.

        • steve0617

          If you are looking at the 2014 6+, yes, it is now $649. But it was $749 when it was new.

          • I’m hoping that’s what they mean, otherwise I would imagine they’d say the 6s+.

    • Jared Denman

      I’m assuming the n6p doesn’t have wireless charging (makes sense why), so I’ll probably be keeping the n6

      • Cowboydroid

        N6 is almost comparable to this device, only really lacking the fingerprint sensor and alleged camera specs.

        • Jared Denman

          I know I almost prefer the 805 over the 810 too.

          • Me

            Why? It throttles some but 430 >420, and it’s faster.

          • Jared Denman

            I don’t need that. Its not like I do extensive video editing or games. Actually I can’t tell you the last time I played a game on my phone.

          • Me

            Ehh my only concern is buying a 810 device so close to the 820. Which from the leaks looks to be a monster.

          • Jared Denman

            Agree but I’m a “nexus or stock Android” type of guy so it’ll be a bit before we get one with an 820. That’s why I’m staying with the n6 until next years nexus

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            Buy, sell, rinse, repeat

          • Ian Case

            The benches I’ve seen show that the 6 vs 6P is a give and take. The 6P does NOT win all the benchmarks. In the real world, the difference will likely not be noticeable.

      • Aaron C

        What is up with so many phones ditching wireless charging??

        • Jared Denman

          Kind of hard to have wireless charging with an aluminum body.

    • ClikFire _

      I was going to get the Pure but after seeing more details on the N6P I am sold.

      My reasons are…

      1. Faster updates – Took the Moto X 2014 4 months to gt 5.1 after its release which fixed all the issues 5.0 – 5.0.2 were having
      2. Fp Scanner – I use to not care about this but since using Android Pay and with Google and 3rd party Apps supporting it more Its a deal breaker now
      3. Premium Build – Moto X Pure is a great looking device but I always wanted a premium built Nexus
      4. Amoled Display – Amoled just keeps getting better every year plus I hate the light bleed I would get on my Nexus 5 and other LCD phones.
      5. Dev Preview – Some may not care about this but for me I love being Google’s beta tester lol.

      Bonus: Massive Dev Support, Huge Rom Selection and Easiest device to root wether on Mac, Windows or Linux.

      • Xavier_NYC

        All great points. The biggest selling point to me is the dev community and updates directly from google. I like the Moto X pure as well but the Nexus beats it in every way.. Also, I hate that the Moto Pure is 11mm thick..

        • Mike

          No sd card and a potentially trash amoled like the Nexus 6. So not every way and not by much.

        • T_Dizzle

          11mm, wow, I didn’t pay attention to that previously. Battery should be bigger with that girth.

          • Xavier_NYC

            exactly, just doesn’t make sense.

      • Lazy Tango

        Totally agree with every reason you listed. Really the Pure’s biggest draw for me other than customization, is that I love Moto’s UX and the fact that it has expandable storage (Which actually seems weird that the Nexus won’t have it since 6.0 will make expandable storage play nicer.)

      • Josh Oberg

        Yea.. But moto cut out the carrier this time around so updates should be even quicker .

      • Lunas Eclipse

        Moto x pure has a micro sd and unlockable bootloader…

        • rsohne

          Yeah,but unlocking the bootloader on the Pure voids the warranty. With the Nexus you can play all day long.

          • Lunas Eclipse

            But no micro sd

          • JRomeo

            the Nexus6P has microSD !!

          • Lunas Eclipse

            Believe that when I see it.

          • rodney11ride

            YEP!

          • illregal

            Unlocking a nexus also voids the warranty for software related items. Not hardware. It’s the same.

          • Shilamar Drea Shockley

            Any phone that you unlock the bootloader voids the warranty…….. How long have you been messin with phones?

          • rsohne

            Probably longer than you are old!

          • Shilamar Drea Shockley

            I highly doubt that, don’t get the site preference confused with my age. I’m likely older than you, and that’s a fact.

        • boisvert00
      • Mike

        The Nexus 6 amoled was blah.. So we’ll see. When people see amoled they assume that it’ll be like Samsung, nobody is on Samsung level when it comes to displays

        • Sam

          That’s the one thing that has me down on this phone is it’s AMOLED.

          The AMOLED on the N6 was trash. Was hoping it would be LCD.

          • Sandro Boghossian

            AMOLED displays are very good, sometimes even better than LCDs. It all depends on how they use this technology. It’s similar to how mp don’t matter on a camera. What matters is how well each mp is used. For example the iPhone has a great 8mp that’s better than a sony 20mp camera.

        • James Adina

          Very true, I hate Samsung phones but damm their displays are stunning and this year they only got better, improved touchwiz, got the #1 camera and first sammy phone with great build… I actually came close to buying one?
          I just wish they would share their tech more (even tho that would be bad for business)… the display in the meizu mx5 is also a stunning amoled but I think they have partnered with samsung for the mx5 and pro 5!

          • Mike

            I purchased the Note 5 and it’s downright amazing.

          • FlyBri

            Totally agreed — verbally trashed the hell out of it when it was announced there was no removable battery and no expandable storage. Ended up getting an LG G4 — the software is laggy as hell and has issues detecting swipes and touches (it also lags a bit when detecting finger movement, which isn’t good for things like games). G4 had a great camera, but it was frustrating as hell to use. Returned it an got a Note 5. Was surprised how much I like the phone — TouchWiz doesn’t suck so much anymore (it’s actually pleasing to use) and everything about the phone is high quality. Sammy did good on this one. Would be nice to have another version with a removable battery though, for those power users who absolutely need it.

          • Andrew Scalingi

            Hi Brian, my apologies for posing the following question to you on here (unfortunately I’m not very ‘Disqus savy’: I recently purchased the Lenovo Yoga Pro 2. Under the comments section of the Yoga Pro 2 on MobileTechReview, you mentioned the proper Intel AC adapter to purchase so as to replace the slower–single-band–card that comes with the Yoga. However, I am coming from a Samsung Ativ 9 Plus (spilt coffee in it). My question to you–and thank your in advance for the help–should I just replace the Lenovo card with the one that was in my Ativ 9 Plus? The card in the Ativ 9 Plus has the same FCC # that you mentioned (PD97260NG); however, it is a Dual Band Wireless N-7260 and not Dual Band Wireless AC. Any help would be much appreciated!

          • Bonedatt

            You still can get that awesome display & camera at a lower price by getting the Note 4.

      • h4rr4r

        5.0 was a mess on the Nexus 5. I think they delayed until 5.1 came out for good reason.

      • instrument

        This phone will be at least $300 more then the pure..

        Not sure why all the comparisons.

        • calculatorwatch

          Oops! Try $50 more for the same amount of storage.

        • homemadehitshow

          Wrong 🙂

        • rodney11ride

          Wrong!

      • Bootleg Zani

        It was Moto X PE and Nexus 6P and now its all Nexus.

    • sdo91

      Same here. I’m waiting to see what the price of the Nexus phones will be…

    • JMonkeYJ

      I don’t understand why the N6P is so much bigger than the Moto X..that’s kind of a bummer, since the X is already pretty large. I’m eager to find out how good the N6P camera actually is. We’ve heard this Google marketing for supposedly good Nexus cameras about a hundred times at this point, but I’m hoping it’s true this time!

    • Raven

      I think my ideal phone would be the specs of the 6P in the size of the 5X. I would so jump all over that.

  • mandy

    Sexy phone. Does the shooter have OIS?

  • John Karaman

    My one concern is with that amoled display. Will it be pentile or nonpentile?

    • OligarchyAmbulance

      Does it even matter these days? On 2K displays I can’t imagine you can see a difference.

      • Nathan Bryant

        Let’s hope it’s the latest in development when it comes to AMOLED. Even at 2K the Nexus 6 screen was nothing to scream about imo. Samsung keeps the best and latest for them.

        • jbdan

          Nothing to even raise your voice at. It’s its major flaw imo

    • hyperbeatser

      lol, this isn’t 2011

      • Tyler Durden

        well the Nexus 6 2014 display isn’t a good AMOLED

        • Me

          But Moto phones displays are always ehh

          • staticx57

            You can’t say anything bad about moto around here, you know

    • Greyhame

      Won’t matter at that resolution.

  • sgtguthrie

    I’ll take one in 128gb with a fi invite please!

  • jbdan

    2 days! This has me thinking I might need a 6P to accompany my 5X

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Putting my Nexus 5 IN LAGGY battery saver mode…. I need a new Nexus!

    • ROB

      bought a new battery for mine… took 10 minutes to install… getting 4 hours screen time now… going to wait for next year to get the snapdragon 820…

  • Danish

    Is this coming out on all carriers?

    • Nathan Bryant

      Of course.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      With bands for all carriers… Not sure about in stores.

      • Adam

        Then the next question is will Verizon support it?

        • Tyler Durden

          They did the Nexus 6 day one

          • They partially did. You could swap SIMs but couldn’t activate new SIMs with the N6.

    • Brian Cruz

      The 5x will support all carriers.including Verizon. This one should too….It better.

  • Bernick Sourivong

    i like it, its growing on me

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      I feel the same… From a size standpoint

  • Qbancelli

    This leak has shut a lot of Nexus haters up.

    They have only the 810 to hate on now, even though is version 2.1

    • Nathan Bryant

      Exactly. Everyone thinks they know what’s going on until they don’t.

    • Mike

      There’s such thing as Nexus haters? Personally I’m going with the Moto X. The nexus 5 just sucks and the 6p to me is horrible looking, though it looks like it’ll be a great phone.

      • rsohne

        The beauty of Android is that we have so many choices, and good ones at that!

    • Jacko

      I believe version 2.1 is same as version 1.0 with extra throttling. It is still the same chip. I don’t consider that a fix.

    • TypoCorrecto

      I don’t know if there are necessarily “Nexus haters” but maybe people that look to complain about every detail…Or maybe have a differing opinion…

    • Tyler Durden

      and the 810 is perfectly fine and capable now without being throttled or overheating.

      • D Barden

        Tyler, youre either high or stupid. And based on your your comments i am going to say both. The 810 is a dog. Youll see soon enough, brah (thats idiot lingo so you would understand)

        • niuguy

          The 810 in everyday usage seems pretty fast. Is it being throttled outside of intense gaming?

          • illregal

            Yes. Try clearing through your list of recent apps. It’ll drop frames like a mofo.

  • DanWazz

    Can wait. The camera bump looks smaller, and its got all the features in looking for.

  • backslashV

    can we expect a substantial price difference compared to N6 since huawei is a chinese manufacturer?

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Lol

    • Nathan Bryant

      That’s funny and not funny. I mean a lot of premium things we value here in America are made outside of America so I wouldn’t think so.

    • Tyler Durden

      What’s that supposed to mean?

      • backslashV

        It means a worker’s pay is much less in China compared to other countries, so the overall cost of manufacturing is lower.

      • He’s asking if it’s going to be cheaper like most of the other flagship Chinese branded phones.

    • T_Dizzle

      Yes we can, you were right.

  • Rodeojones000

    Wireless charging?

  • DS

    I hope they can get those phones in stores pretty quick and that we don’t see months of back orders.

    Thing to be careful of, is that these are presentation slides. When you’re trying to sell your phone you’ll say anything like “best battery life” and “low light amazingness.” These are prob designed for ppl to sell the phone.

  • This looks like my next phone…

    • LiterofCola

      I looks like an ugly phone

      • Who cares?

        • Mike

          Most people that have ever purchased a phone in the history of ever care what their phone looks like. Every phone is fast nowadays but not all look good.

          • I could care less. I’m gonna put a tpu diztronic case on it anyway. Really depends on what you’re looking for. I’m looking for a fingerprint reader, wireless charging, and a big battery.

            I care more about specs. As mkbhd said, there’s no perfect phone. Internally or externally.

          • Mike

            Exactly people like different things for different reasons. I rock my phones naked. I care about looks and specs. Seeing that every single phone coming out from here on out is fast and all have really similar specs that doesn’t really matter anymore. Loving the wood on my X pure and that glass on my Note 5

          • I’m debating between next nexus or moto pure. Fingerprint reader is important to me but price is too

          • Adam

            I would have to disagree here. The most important looks on the phone will be the screen, since that’s the only thing most people are ever going to look at. And since any good phone will pretty much be the screen and little else on the front they all look pretty much the same from the front(barring actual screen quality of course.)

            I feel like making the argument that people buy inferior phones because of the aesthetics would be like buying a cheap TV because the back side looks nicer.

          • Mike

            All in all almost every new flagship has a great display. The TouchWiz statement only applies to Android die hards, I’m speaking from the average consumer standpoint. No flagship phone out this year is “inferior”

        • LiterofCola

          everybody but you.

        • James Cooper

          All phones look like any phone once you get them in a case

        • Ian Case

          Lots of people. Look at the people that bitched that the Galaxy S5 wasn’t pretty enough, that the M9 wasn’t pretty enough, etc. Lots of people care. If they didn’t, Samsung would never have gone to the design of the S6 and saved that money by making it out of plastic again.

          • S6 didn’t sell anyway so I guess it really doesn’t matter.

      • StevieV

        I see a lot of people saying that. Which phone would you consider pretty?

      • James_75

        You do?

    • Mobin Amanzai

      *nex[us] phone…
      FTFY

  • Allen Byrd

    That is one beautiful phone. Gotta admit, I’m pretty excited, especially after hearing about the battery.

  • Dave S.

    Gotta say, this sounds pretty nice. Still not a fan of the large “forehead” and “chin” on the front, but the build quality looks solid and that camera bump is a lot smaller than I thought it was at first (though still odd that it has a whole black bar along it though).

    • jimt

      I think it will act as a tripod when the phone is on its back on a table. It will sit as if flat.

      • Chris

        WAT?

        • jimt

          Even though the back is rounded it will be stable when on a table so you can touch the screen and the phone won’t rock side to side.

          • Tyler Durden

            it’s not a large enough bump to do that

    • TriguyRN

      I agree. From the earlier pictures I had seen the bump looked huge but, looking at that angled shot of it lying on its back is is not very large at all.

    • James Cooper

      Can’t believe I’ve gone form wanting the new 5 to leaning towards the 6.

  • James_75

    I might buy this just for the type C! Ha. Hopefully it has usb 3.0 or better.

    • Tyler Durden

      says it charges fast so I mean, it’s gotta be.

      • h_f_m

        I think “faster charging” and true Quick Charge are not the same thing. I’m hoping that they come out and say whatever they are using is either Quick Charge or at least comparable. But “USB-C charger for faster charging” doesn’t give me 100% confidence.

        • Tyler Durden

          It’s a qualcomm processor so it’s gonna have quick charge if they use the right specs with type c

          • h_f_m

            I agree, but I would feel better about it if they just said “quick charge” instead of dancing around it with fancy words that usually mean “not as good but it’s faster than the old micro-usb stuff..” when decoded.

          • hunkoman

            So no confirmation of “Quick charge 2.0” ?

      • Me

        Also says faster data transfers, so it at least has to be 3.0.

    • Ben Landwehr

      Thought I read in r/Android on Reddit that it’s USB 3.1. I could be wrong though.

  • Nayners

    Nexus 6p for me, 5x for the wife. Done. Come on, Tuesday!

  • Mel823

    Oh, that hat really is how it will look.

  • TypoCorrecto

    Ok…Now I want this…

    The price for the 128gb will be the determining factor…

    • Godzilla

      700

      • TypoCorrecto

        It that a guess or inside information?

        • Godzilla

          Per Godzilla

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            Per Sarge

          • Godzilla

            LOL

        • Greyhame

          Guess.

  • litobirdy

    Can the 5x detailed guide leak please so I can complain how underperforming it is compared to phones 2 years old when u was ready to upgrade to the 5x lol

  • Godzilla

    550 starting price.

    • Nayners

      They’d sell a ton of these at that price.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      If I can get the 64GB Under $650 that’ll be a good range I think. I might bite… Despite its ungodly size.

      • Godzilla

        Physically bigger than my pure

        • jimt

          Actually bigger than the Nexus 6. Whale +. Works for me.

      • Nathan Bryant

        You’re gonna realize how did you use anything smaller when you get used to it.

  • ShahRukh Ahmed

    It’s either this or the Moto X Pure/Style for me.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Let’s go #PatriotsNation!

    Now that that’s out of the way…. Is this phone taller than the Nexus 6? Am I seeing things?

    Otherwise this thing is a BEAST

    • Godzilla

      And it’ll have a beast price

    • Nathan Bryant

      If it is taller, then it will not be as wide which makes a big difference. Less to reach around.

    • Tyler Durden

      Bortles seems like a bust on the Jags, but what else is new for a guy who was a kicker during his pop warner days. Go Brady!

      • Ian Case

        Bortles isn’t a bust. Playing QB for the Jaguars is the bust here. Who’s the last good QB they had? Brunell that one year? Kinda, sorta Leftwich but not really?

        • Me

          Garrard was OK but yeah Jags are Jags.

    • Suicide_Note

      It’s shorter and thinner than the N6.

      • jimt

        Nexus 6 159.3x83x10.1
        Nexus 6P 159.4×77.8×7.3
        The Nexus 6P is a little taller and noticeably thinner and skinnier. I got the specs confused above but they are generally the same size.

        • jagema

          5mm narrower is definitely NOT the same size. Width makes a huge difference on a phone’s grip.

          • Tom S

            It’s also got a smaller screen.
