Google has announced that Nexus 6 (Quick Review) will arrive in 28 countries including India by the end of this year. So in case you are eager to buy this new Nexus phablet, you will have to wait another few weeks. This is the first Nexus device made by Motorola and is very similar in design to Moto X 2014, albeit bigger. On the inside, it has more similarities to upcoming Droid Turbo (if rumors are to be believed.)

Hardware includes 2.7 GHz Quad core Snapdragon 805 with Krait 420 cores, Adreno 420 GPU, 3 GB RAM and 32 GB/ 64 GB storage. The 5.9 Inch Super AMOLED display has Quad HD 2K resolution pumping pixel density to 493 pixels per inches.

Imaging hardware includes a 13 MP rear shooter with OIS and dual LED flash, if Motorola is using the same camera module as in Moto X, it wouldn’t be a bad thing. A 2 MP front shooter is also present for video calling. The battery capacity is 3220 mAh which supports turbo charging as well. Wireless charging is also supported, but TDD LTE (used by Airtel Network in India) won’t be supported

Software is Android 5.0 Lollipop which will bring several improvements including ART runtime, Material Design, a new keyboard and more. Google has also announced that Nexus 5, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 2012, Nexus 7 2013 and Nexus 10 will all get Android Lollipop update very soon. Motorola also promised Android 5.0 Lollipop update for all Motorola smartphones sold in India so far.
