Screengrab from DXOmark article on Nexus 6P.


Just few hours, Google annouced the 2 new Nexus phones. The Smaller 5x will be made by LG and its bigger Sibling the 6P will be made by Huawei. The DXOmark mobile for the Nexus 6P have centianly caught my eye. Being a blogger like myself having a good camera on our mobile phones is certainly an added advantage. We will take a deeper Dive into the Nexus 6P here. 


 

Specs at a glance and key features:



Screengrab from Huawei website

As of all Nexus Devices launches, The phone will be the the first to feature a Pure, no bells and whistles latest version of Android, for this case is Android Marshmellow, future versions of
Android will be readily available as well. The best part? The Android in Nexus devices is pure so
manfacturer's bloatware won't exist in this eco system.The phone will also feature the brand new Reversible USB type-C port, No more fumbling with it,

It's Rear Camera has 12.3 Megapixel sensor(IMX377) Made by Sony, 1.53um pixels, aperture of f/2.0 with laser autofocus and dual tone LED flash in a tow. The front has got 8 Megapixel shooter. Update: Check out former Android Enginner Romain Guy's sample shots from the phone below, do note that some minor post processing have been done but the shots are still impressive!

The phone launches today State side on Google store. The Global launch of the phone is not ready yet at the time of publication but seemly for the first time for google, There is a Exclusive gold option for the Japanese market (argggggh i want this!!!! =( ).

We don't know the global prices yet but according this Android Central article, this is what it will look like:

For the local price in SGD i am guessing its not too far off (Numerical wise) from what aussies are paying in AUD based on the current exchange rates, but don't qoute me on that just use it as a rough gauge. Also we don't know excatly what options do we have here. but if you are intrested like me, i suggest you keep your eye glued to Huawei Singapore Facbebook page
