Here, we bring some of the highlights of this new Nexus 6P smartphone.

Performance: The smartphone is powered by Snapdragon 810 processor with 3GB RAM and comes in three storage variants: 32, 64 and 128GB.

Metal body: The Huawei-made Nexus 6P is the first in the Nexus family to come wrapped within a full metal body. Along with its diamond-cut edges and sculpted back, the Nexus 6P looks respectable.


Camera: A 12.3-megapixel rear camera is paired with a two-color LED flash for more natural colours, along a laser auto-focus contraption, supposedly allowing for quicker snaps. Front camera boasts large 1.55µm pixels and a wide F/2.0 aperture. This is in addition to the dual-LED flash for promising low-light performance. It records 2160p, naturally. The front snapper is is 8MP and has 1.4µm pixels and F/2.4 aperture.

New Look and style: The Nexus 6 comes with a 0.4 inches-thick body, which gives it an elegant look. The whole thing measures 159.4 x 77.8 x 7.3mm, just a tad taller than an iPhone 6 Plus despite the two front speakers.


Smaller Screen: With the Nexus 6P, Google took a step back and settled on a 5.7-inch display as compared to its earlier models. It's still an AMOLED with QHD resolution (1,440 x 2,560px), the front-facing speakers were also carried over to the new design.

Larger Battery: Google has improved its Nexus phablet with a larger, 3,450 mAh battery compared to Nexus 6.

USB-C: The Nexus 6P will, arguably, be the first mainstream smartphone to support USB-C. That standard, which is going to make its way to smartphones over the next couple of years, will offer faster charging and faster data speeds on the Nexus 6P.

Fingerprint Sensor:
The technology is technically called 'Nexus Imprint' and Google says it can recognize a fingerprint in fewer than 600 milliseconds, which is really quick. Nexus Imprint is also apparently capable of learning over time to speed up that process.

New Colour Options: The Nexus 6P comes in three new colours. Frosted white, aluminum, and graphite are the new colors to choose from.
