Google today unveiled its new nexus that is Nexus 6P. New Nexus has slightly smaller 5.7-inch display and a completely new design and device is only 7.3mm thick.
Google is calling it “6P” has it is “most premium phone yet.”It’s the first Nexus with an all-metal body. It’s also including a fingerprint sensor on the back, placed where Google expects you to rest your finger while holding it. 6P has a pretty large came on its back, and that’s because it’s hiding away a 12.3-megapixel Sony sensor that features larger pixels than what you’ll find on most smartphones, including the iPhone.
The new camera will allow you to take better photos in low-light, and that’s basically what Google is saying. The camera is supposed to be optimized for indoor photography; it also features slow-motion video, 4K video, and burst mode for photos.
Google also now adapts USB Type-C for charging. Google officially adds support for it in Marshmallow, the new version of Android that’s shipping on this phone. Google says that the Nexus 6P also supports fast charging, allowing it to charge twice as fast as an iPhone 6 Plus.
Nexus 6P will cost you $499 for a 32GB model, and rises up to $549 for a 64GB model and $649 for a 128GB model.The phone is unlocked and supposed to work across “major carriers”. Preorders for the Nexus 6P begin today and device shipments beginning in late October.
Google is today also introducing a new Nexus Protect warranty program, which costs $69 for the Nexus 5X and provides two years of mechanical breakdown and accidental damage coverage. You’ll get an overnight replacement unit sent to you while your original is being repaired, promises Google.
