Nexus 6 – Won’t be Made by LG in New Claim
Since its first release in 2012, Nexus has trounced expectations and shed its Android purist only image to become a device for the masses.
The device was always going to attract the attention of a market in constant search of great specs at a fair price; both of which the Nexus 4 offered. A year later Google gave the world the Nexus 5, one of 2013’s most brilliant devices.
It had specs to rival flagships from Samsung, Apple and other big players in the smartphone arena yet cost hundreds of pounds less.
At a glance, the Nexus 5 offered users a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor backed by 2 GB of RAM. And given its lean make and Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS shorn of bloatware, this made for a super-fast phone.
Its 5.0-inch 1080p display was the same as what the celebrated Samsung Galaxy S5 came with.
Given the impressive value the Nexus 5 offered savvy phone buyers, it’s no surprise that Google’s next smartphone is being awaited with bated breath.
But you should not expect any groundbreaking changes in design or capacity with the new Nexus; mostly upgrades to the Nexus 5’s features and add-ons borrowed from other smartphones.
A few concept images have been floating around showing what should be the Nexus 6 in a variety of colours. The pictures look quite impressive showing what Indian website My Gadgetic say will be a massive 5.7-inch display in all its glory.
The screen will have a Super LCD 4 display boasting a 1080×1920 pixel resolution, according to the same source. While the trend towards bigger screens and phablets is sure to continue, some feel this might be too big for a Nexus.
There were improvements Nexus users were hoping to see in the next edition of the device, however.
They longed for a bigger battery, preferably a 3000 mAh battery.
The fact that you could not add onto the 16 or 32 GB of internal memory in the device also irked a number of Nexus users and they will be hoping that the new Google handset will come with a microSD slot to allow them to create more space for their apps and media.
Many users of the Nexus 5 felt that its GPS system was very weak and will be expecting the new iteration of Nexus to do a better job of capturing satellite signals.
It has been announced by LG’s communications director that they won’t be making the new Nexus, so whoever was given the task had better have been taking notes.
