Google is getting ready to unveil a new Nexus handset this fall, a huge 6-inch Nexus 6 smartphone that is supposed to launch once Android L is ready for its commercial release. Interestingly, in addition to selling directly from the Google’s Play Store, the Nexus 6 may also be stocked by certain carriers in the U.S., including Verizon, which didn’t sell any of the most recent Nexus smartphones.
Verizon isn’t be the friendliest mobile operator when it comes to supporting Nexus devices, but a new report from PocketNow says that Verizon might be launching the Nexus 6 later this year. So far, Verzion has only sold in its stores the 2011 Galaxy Nexus and last year’s Nexus 7 tablet version.
Actual Nexus 6 availability dates for Verizon – or any other U.S. carrier for that matter – haven’t yet been revealed disclosed, and the publication didn’t share any other details about the rumored handset. The price of the Nexus 6 is also yet to be revealed.
Recent reports have offered various details about the Nexus 6 confirming previous rumors, including unofficial renders and actual pictures of the device being tested in the wild. The handset is expected to closely resemble the 2014 Moto X version and pack high-end hardware, such as a 5.9-inch 2K display, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 3,200 mAh battery with fast-charging technology and run Android L.
