Fresh from the announcement from Google of the new Nexus devices and Android 5.0 or Lollipop, T-Mobile announced today that the Nexus 6 smartphone will be coming to the network by November. Already, people are buzzing about the new device, as it is probably the first Google phone that can be called a phablet and it is also the first Nexus device to be produced by Motorola. It will also be running on the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop (darn, we were hoping for Lemon Meringue Pie) with its Material Design look.
Aside from its features, like the almost 6-inch 5.96-inch Quad HD display and the 2.7 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 which will run the device, one thing that might excite T-Mobile subscribers about the device is that it will have WiFi calling capabilities when the carrier’s WiFi Un-leashed will be, well, unleashed early 2015. Thanks to enhancements in the Lollipop, a simple OTA update next year will allow you to make voice calls through your Internet connection.
The Nexus 6 will be available in either 32 or 64 GB internal storage options (RAM is still not specified but will probably be at either 2 or 3). For mobile photography enthusiasts, the device has a 13-megapixel main camera, a (not so exciting) 2-megapixel front facing camera, f/20 aperture, Optical Image Stabilization, 4K video recording and an LED flash ring. In terms of battery life, it has a 3.220 mAh battery and a Turbo Charge feature that will make it last for 6 hours of use at just 15 minutes of charging.
By November 12, T-Mobile subscribers will be able to get the Nexus 6 at $0 down or $27.08/month on a 24 month installment plan. If you’re too excited to find out if you can pre-order it already or you just want to receive an email reminding you that it will soon be available (maybe there will be a countdown!}, you can sign up for updates on the Nexus 6 page on the T-Mobile site.
