Today Google has taken the wraps off it’s latest Smartphone, the Nexus 6 — a huge 6-inch Quad HD display running the latest Android released called Lollipop. It is worth noting that this phone is bigger than both the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy Note 4. The phone also includes a 13-megapixel rear camera and two front-facing speakers just like HTC One series.

 A Moto X on steroids

The latest Nexus phone is surely a Moto X on steroids, the Nexus 6 features a full metal trim around the outside, a circular flash ring, and even a dimpled Motorola logo. That’s by no means a bad thing, though: the Moto X is a very nicely made phone, so the more cues the Nexus 6 takes from it, the better. The phone has a Snapdragon 805 processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front camera, a huge 3220 mAh battery. It can include either 32 or 64GB of internal storage and comes in either blue or white.

The phone runs  Android 5.0 Lollipop, that the company is also launching today. Lollipop was called Android L and was first demonstrated back in June, when Google showcased a brand new design style for Android called Material design. This new design adopts a playful and colorful look based around simple shapes and sheets of paper.

Among other features Lollipop comes with a battery saving feature that can extend a phone’s life by up to 90 minutes, it also includes one of Motorola’s Turbo Chargers, which can charge the phone back up to six hours worth of battery life in 15 minutes.The Nexus 6 will be available to preorder on October 29th, and it’ll be available in stores beginning in November.

A New HTC made Nexus Tablet

Google will today release the Nexus 9 tablet today, an Android 5.0 tablet that the company designed in collaboration with HTC. Pre-orders will begin on October 17th and you can expect the tablet to start showing up in stores on November 3rd. Nexus 9 is available in either black or white and comes in three configurations: 16GB for $399, 32GB for $479, and an LTE-enabled 32GB model for $599.
