The Nexus 6 with its high-spec hardware and pure Android Lollipop experience is coming to Malaysia very soon. Its international variant with the model number XT1100 just passed SIRIM certification, which means it is going on sale very soon. The Nexus 6 which was announced with Android 5.0 Lollipop is the biggest Nexus smart phone yet.
It jumps into the large phablet category with a 5.96″ Quad HD (2560×1440) AMOLED display. Underneath the hood, it runs on Qualcomm’s 2.7GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GB of RAM, that’s also powering the Galaxy Note Edge. For storage, there are 2 versions – 32GB and 64GB, and most probably we would be getting the smaller 32GB option. If you need more storage, the Nexus 6 unfortunately lacks a microSD expansion slot.
For imaging, it gets a 13MP camera with Optical Image Stabiliser that’s assisted with a ring flash illumination that’s similar to the new Moto X. Over at the front, selfie loves would need to settle for a lower 2MP camera. For music playback, it also comes with a pair of front stereo speakers. Keeping the lights on is a 3,220mAh capacity battery which can be charged quickly for a 6 hour of battery life in just 15 minutes. It also supports 4G LTE and the SIRIM certification shows our local 1800MHz and 2600MHz bands being supported.
The Nexus 6 being a Moto device will be distributed by Brightstar. Hopefully they will price this better than the Moto X 2014. At the moment, grey importers like DirectD are currently selling the Nexus 6 32GB at RM2,679, while the 64GB version is going for RM3,189.
