Next-gen Nexus 6 Smartphone

Here’s our first big rumor about Google’s next-gen Nexus phone

Here’s our first big rumor about Google’s next-gen Nexus phone

It’s way too early for next-gen Nexus smartphone rumors, but a wild report has already emerged out of China many months before Google’s expected launch date for a new Nexus phone. The successor of the Nexus 6 — which we won’t call Nexus 7 just yet, because that would simply be a strange smartphone name considering Google has used it for tablets so far — might be made by an Android device maker from China, according to a post on Weibo posted by someone with knowledge of the matter that was recently quoted by GizmoChina.

Motorola’s next major handset tipped to be ‘smarter than any other smartphones’

The Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 are going to soon be unveiled, but apparently none of them will be as smart as Motorola’s upcoming flagship device. The company’s 2014 flagship handsets, including the Nexus 6, Droid Turbo and Moto X are still relatively young, but the company is tipped to launch a new flagship soon. More →

The Nexus 6 is missing a major feature and it’s all Apple’s fault

After previous reports suggested that at least one version of the Nexus 6 would come with a built-in fingerprint sensor that would put the handset on par with similar offerings from Apple and Samsung, a former prominent Google and Motorola exec has confirmed the feature was supposed to be included in the Nexus 6, but blamed Apple for not being able to pull it off.

This is what it’s like for an iPhone user to switch to the Nexus 6

One of the most interesting things to watch over the past few years has been to see Apple and Google try to make their platforms more alike by adopting one another’s strengths. So while Apple has been working on making its platform a little bit more open to things such as third-party keyboards, Google has been pouring resources into Android’s overall design to make it more visually appealing. Android 5.0 Lollipop and its Material Design UI are the results of all this work and so far both have been earning wide praise from early adopters. More →

This canceled Nexus 6 feature sheds light on what’s next for Android

Google’s latest Nexus smartphone, the Nexus 6 phablet, is the company’s best handset to date, but the device could have been even better. Ars Technica reports that at least one prototype of the Nexus 6 also had a fingerprint sensor that could have offered users additional security features. However, for some reason, Google decided to scrap this particular feature, even though it clearly explored the possibility, as various bits of Android 5.0 code suggest. More →

The Nexus 6 is now even cheaper… but there’s a huge catch

Even though the Nexus 6 is more expensive than any of its predecessors, Google is betting on a different strategy to sell more Nexus smartphones this year, and that’s partnering up with various mobile operators around the world, including many U.S. carriers that can sell the handset for a subsidized price. Joining AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile is U.S. Cellular, which is currently taking orders for both the 32GB and 64GB versions of the handset, with both of them being priced cheaper than elsewhere. More →
