Display Screen

New rumours tell that Nexus 6 will have a 2K HD display resolution, which Galaxy S5 didn?t have but Oppo Find 7 boast. Moreover, design materials are expected to be more solid using aluminium chassis to create a brand-new Nexus ergonomic feeling.

IP Certification

Google may look into giving Nexus 6 dust and water resistances after seeing Galaxy S5 with IP 67. At the least, Nexus 6 should have IP 58 or ?mostly resist dust with water resistance within 30 minutes under 1 metre? that iscommonly found on selected Xperia devices. Reports suggest that these features would likely ?appear on the device.

Blazing Fast Processor

Lots of manufacturers including Samsung and Sony are waiting for Qualcomm?s official release of new processor cores supporting 64-bit processing. Intel is also developing 64-bit processors for mobile devices which is rumoured?for Nexus 8. It is likely that Nexus 6 is getting similar treatment either from Intel or Qualcomm.

Bigger RAM

If Nexus 6 features 64-bit processors, it is probably getting a bigger RAM for users to maximise processing speed. Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 are equipped with 2 GB of RAM and it won?t hurt giving 3 GB to 4 GB RAM on Nexus 6. However, if Google upgrades the chipset the price would likely ?increase as well.

Camera Upgrades

We have seen the optical image stabilisation and Android 4.4.2 KitKat supporting the 8 MP rear camera on Nexus 5. Vital upgrades on Nexus 6 includes OIS camera module, higher MP from 10 to 13, clearer video calls and new camera modes such as selective focus or quicker automatic focus.

Operating System

Android 4.4.2 KitKat would be ancient for Nexus 6 and newer Nexuses are always getting the latest Android version. By October, Google will present a brand Android version which may be called Android 4.5 or 5.0 with Lollipop dessert name. Google I/O 2014 may also include glimpses of what Android users should expect on the next-generation of the mobile OS coming very soon.

Additional Sensors

Some rumours believe that Nexus 6 will also feature a fingerprint scanner just like Galaxy S5 and iPhone 5S plus atmospheric sensor. But if Google includes all these sensors, Nexus users will feel the price tag increase upon release. Nexus devices are basically cheaper compared to other flagship Android smartphones sold in the market.

Battery Life

Nexus 5 sports 2300 mAh battery which isn?t so impressive, but Google could improve it a bit higher on Nexus 6, giving it 3000 or 3200 mAh to match Galaxy S5 or Xperia Z2. Android 4.5/5.0 should also feature new optimisation for the battery to help sustain Nexus 6 at least for a day without killing the use of 4G/LTE, Web browsing, chatting and gaming.


LG made Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 which also probably be the same for Nexus 6. Reports from Gizmodo Germany reveal that the South Korean tech company is going to be Google?s partner again on the new Nexus smartphone expected to be released in Q1 2014. Some suggestions from reports include 64-bit processor, 5.5 inches of screen display and 16 MP camera.
