The existing Nexus 6P is already pretty neat, especially with its tie-up with Android N that made it more than efficient and appealing in different levels. With features that support multitasking and virtual reality, it is one phablet highly recommended for people on the go.
When it comes to hardware specs, Google Nexus 6P leaves a lot to be desired.
- 7 inch display in 2560x1440p
- Android 6.0 marshmallow OS
- 3 megapixel rear camera
- 8 megapixel front-facing camera
- 4K video capture
- Snapdragon 810 processor
- 3GB RAM
- 32GB, 64GB, and 128 GB storage options
If not for the lack of expandable storage, the Google Nexus 6P would have been the perfect mobile device. But you might think otherwise, now that it is sold at a discounted price.
But the next round of Nexus 6P could prove even better than the existing one. Rumor has it that it will be produced by Google, still in collaboration with Huawei and HTC.
During the launch in South Africa of the P9, P9 Plus and P9 Lite, general manager for Huawei’s Consumer Business Group in South Africa, Charlene Munilall, said that the company is doing Nexus again this 2016.
In a tweet, senior editor and contributor of 9to5Google, Stephen Hall, also shared his personal prediction based on “little things he’s heard…Google is doing 3 Nexii this year: 2 from HTC, 1 from Huawei”.
Regarded as the best Nexus ever, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Google is doing another Nexus 6P this year and will continue to work with Huawei if possible. The existing device is a solid all-metal gadget with a large display, fab fingerprint scanner, excellent camera, and extended battery life. What is even better is that it is bloatware-free.
But what would the future Nexus 6P will look like?
The device is unlike the existing unit, which surfaced in the Geekbench Benchmarks. There are also lots of improvements, starting with a Snapdragon 820 processor, which is a step up from the 810 and an additional 1GB of RAM from the original 3GB.
And while the specs of the front camera remains the same, the rear camera has improved to 16 megapixels. Its motherboard is reported to be labelled as Marlin and will run Android N. Tipster Evan Bass also let it slip that the two Nexus 2016 will bear the code names M1 and S1.
With Android VR already part of the existing Nexus 6P, there is definitely something to look forward to with the 2016 model.
