The Nexus 6, Google’s newest iteration of its Nexus cellphone line, is HUGE and plans for a HUGE impact this holiday season.

Google’s Nexus line has been successful over the last 5-6 years. Every year, a new Nexus cellphone pushed the benchmark for what a premium smartphone should and could do. In 2012 and 2013, Google stressed the importance of affordability, showing that an affordable phone could also be considered premium and high end. Now it’s the year 2014 and Google has put out its sixth iteration of its Nexus cellphone. The Motorola manufactured Nexus 6, modeled after Motorola’s Moto X (2014), is jam packed with power sporting a mammoth 5.96″ screen and the latest Snapdragon 805 chipset. This, as well as 3 GB of RAM, will allow the Nexus 6 to fly. One of the most anticipated features is the Turbo Charging feature, which allows for 6 hours of battery life to be charged in 15 minutes! The Nexus 6 sports a 3,200 mAh battery, meaning longer lasting battery life. The front-facing and rear cameras are both 2 MP and 13 MPs respectively, with the rear camera also sporting Optical Image Stabilization. And finally, the Nexus 6 will sport the latest in Android software, known as Android Lollipop (5.0). With 32 GB and 64 GB versions up for grabs, pre orders will be available for the phone starting October 29th. Its off-contract price starts at $649, which will be a little hard to stomach for some consumers especially considering the previous Nexus phones, the Nexus 4 and 5, only started at $299 and $349 off-contract respectively. The Nexus 6 will also be available on all 5 major US carriers through monthly contracts, unless your on T-Mobile. Anybody excited for Google’s newest Nexus phone?
