There are already many rumors about the next generation nexus smartphone.

Current rumors of specs are:
5.9 inch display
snapdragon 805
Latest adreno gpu
3 gigabyte of ram
2k display

What do you think about it?
Will you buy it?
When do you think it will get released?
Do you like the size?

Probably NO :) I don't think it will be octa-core, that is way too exotic at the moment (as far as I am concerned). If there will be a new nexus probably it will have something around the Snapdragon 801 this year.

Either way the processing power should be more than enough on what we have on the N5 the brighter future would be optimizations in the OS and probably better hardware builds (new materials, etc.).

64bit-arm octacore cpu
Latest adreno gpu
3-4 gb of ram
2k display
16 mp camera

When do you think it will get relreased? I saw june - august on some pages, but it's just a rumor.

I`ll only buy the N6 if it has the new Nvidea 192 cored K1 chip, anything less is unacceptable :p

As said on another similar (also closed) thread, rumors and speculating at this time are pointless. The rumors, leaks and expectatios of most websites seldom come true as history shows most of the times.

Well, obviously N6 will be a LG phone again. LG Odin SoC has 64-bit octa-core version, so it is quite possible N6 to end up being octa-core 64-bit phone. :)

Of course, flagship device at half the cost of other flagship, although all the nexus devices have at least one subpar area to keep the price down. Galaxy nexus was build quality, nexus 4 was it's camera, and nexus 5 was it's battery. I wonder what the nexus 6 can bring to the table.

- 6" screen with QHD resolution
- 3 GB of RAM
- 4000mAh battery

These specs would be nice, I´d love to have a really big phone like a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 but without any Knox or similar restrictions :D

My guess:

Same 5" Screen (1080p)
Snapdragon 801 or whatever the latest is.
Improved graphics chip of some variation.
Improvements in the wireless chipsets.
2GB Ram
Improved Cameras
Slightly larger battery capacity.

Those rumors are ridiculous. It will probably have a snapdragon 805 and be released in October/November just like every other nexus phone.

Are you guys serious? The Nexus 1 did not have a 1 inch screen. The second didn't have a 2 inch screen. The number is the generation of the phone not the screen size. We don't even have a full 5 inches on our Nexus 5s it's 4.95. Got to love using my 1 inch screen sized Nexus 1. Yup the number definitely represents screen size.

These silly arguments start around the same time every year. Two years ago it was the Verizon crazies guaranteeing that Verizon would get the Nexus 4. Last year was the best one. The Kandy Kane Krew. "OMG did you see the Candy Cane in the Android version Easter egg?!?! 4.4 will be Kandy Kane!!"

Now it is the screen size naming convention. C'mon man. Screen size has never named a Nexus phone. Sure, there is a Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. What will Google do by then? Who knows...probably not use a number, just like they have two other times in the past (Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus).

    If the N6 is going to be the first Nexus with 64 processor and OS, then Google please call it N64, that would be awesome :D

    Honestly, if the new nexus doesnt have atleast have a 780ti equivalent gpu, it will fail, it better have atleast 12gbs of ram with a 32 inch screen. and if it doesnt make me smoothies, ill pass

    Will it be called Nexus 6 ? The number represent the screen.

    Not sure that google will make a 6" phone. Maybe it'll be like the Nexus 7 ? A 2014 version of Nexus 5 ?

    I would reply to this..but typing is a **** on my Nexus One.

    Spec wise, not on the OS end.
    Oh you mean fancy names that generally don't mean anything?
    1Gig
    Dual core
    Same 8mp camera
    Now a bigger phone which Apple mockingly talked about Samsung in their last keynote, said they would never upsize but now offer a 5.5 inch phone with the same specs as the 4.7 phone??


    Or did you mean the same 16-32 storage with that ridiculous price tag for a 2 year lockdown?


    Nah Google is fine. Believe me.

    Honestly if this size crying does not stop I might be tempted to make another N6 thread for actual discussion on the technology and the software. Not an bloody echo chamber about how its too big for them.

    Hell with the amount of complaining about size you would think this would be something that was going to be forced into everyone's anal cavity, Not a mobile device. Its absolutely absurd the amount of *****ing is taking place here.


    Can we just have a goddamn civil discussion on the Nexus 6 without having to ***** on the size? Please?!?
