Default [Q] Glove Mode

Can you guys confirm my suspicion that you cannot control the screen of a Nexus 5 while wearing ordinary leather gloves?
I don't care about the special gloves made for screens.

Also, has anyone heard any rumors that Glove Mode might be supported on the Nexus 6?

No. We have a normal capacitive screen like most phones so you cannot use it with ordinary gloves.

Although no one knows what the next nexus supports, I doubt very much that it will support "glove mode". Nexus devices generally focus on Apps not hardware.
