There is new competition for the iPhone as Google’s Nexus 6p smartphone is set to come
out in early November with new and innovative features that will help enhance a smartphone
The Nexus 6p is the latest installment in Google’s Nexus smartphone collection. The “P”
in the smartphone’s name stands for premium. The Nexus 6p will be the seventh generation in
five years. “The Nexus 6p has a 5.7-inch, high-resolution display and front-facing stereo
speakers all housed in a contoured aluminum body,” as reported by gethuawei.com.
Some of the Nexus 6p features include higher quality frame, longer battery life, newer
Android OS, better camera lighting, and fingertip sensor, as stated in store.google.com.
According to thenextweb.com, “Android has come a long way from two years ago and Huawei
has delivered a phone that is in the same form factor as the 6 Plus, but with a larger screen and its
‘best yet’ camera.”
The Nexus 6p contains a frame that is expected to match frames created by Apple.
“Crafted from aeronautical-grade anodized aluminum, the new Nexus sports the curves and
contours of a machine built for turning heads. Diamond chamfers encircle its edges, and the new
visor on the back of the device accents the low-light-loving, 12.3 MP, sapphire-crystal lens
camera,” according to gethuawei.com.
The Nexus 6p also features a longer battery life, a feature that is very important in a
phone. “With the octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor under the hood, performance on the new
Nexus is faster than ever, yet gentler on battery life. The 3450mAh battery keeps you talking,
texting and apping into the night,” as reported by ibtimes.com.
“The Nexus 6p is a smartphone that I am willing to try and see if it exceeds the
expectations of Apple products,” stated Mauricio Rosales, sophomore.
