The Nexus 6P renews the category of Google phablets and replaces the Nexus 6. It does so with convincing arguments in the form of high performance and innovations such as the fingerprint sensor included in the back. Also, it is the first Nexus device made of aluminum and has Android 6.0 Marshmallow as the native version for the operating system.
The design of the Nexus 6P is strongly influenced by the manufacturer who has been in charge of its assembly. And is that Huawei has designed a phablet based on its latest developments, such as the Huawei Mate S. Thus, the Nexus 6P has an anodized aluminum housing with high-quality terminations and trim as the bevelling of the sides of the equipment. It is a one-piece housing, so a robust and lightweight equipment has been achieved. They are 178 grams on the scale and measures 159.6 x 77.8 x 7.3 millimeters.
Within the section of the benefits it is necessary to indicate that the screen, besides showing a diagonal of 5.7 inches and resolution QHD (2,560 x 1,440 pixels with density of 518 points per inch), has an AMOLED panel and glass cover Gorilla Glass 4 , In addition to an oleophobic layer to avoid stains and fingerprints.
The cameras present in the Nexus 6P also represent a great evolution with regard to the Nexus 6 since the main, housed in the back cover, next to the fingerprint sensor, has a Sony sensor with 12.3 megapixels. However, the most significant detail is the pixel size, on the order of 1.55 microns, something that has a significant impact on the quality of photographs in dark environments, something that also affects the opening of the lens with f / 2.0 value. Another aspect and additional features of the camera are the presence of a dual LED flash and an infrared laser focus system. As far as video recording is concerned, the phablet is capable of capturing at 4K resolution and also supports slow motion recording with a refresh rate of up to 240 fps.
If you look at the front camera, the Nexus 6P sports an eight-megapixel wide-angle sensor, f / 2.4 lens aperture and 1.4-micron pixel size.
The performance of the Nexus 6P will be determined by a second-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC. The eight-core architecture not only works up to 2 GHz but also has a high-performance Adreno 430 graphics accelerator. Google also includes what it has called Android Hub, a sensor that is responsible for the management and processing of computer sensors to optimize the performance of the main processor while saving energy. The RAM available for the system – Android 6.0 Marshmallow – is 3 GB and the storage system is based on a memory chip that starts from 32 GB and is complete with 64 and 128 GB versions.
The connectivity of the Nexus 6P is composed of the wireless section by an LTE Advanced Category 6 modem, WiFi ac Dual Band with MIMO technology, Bluetooth 4.2 and assisted GPS. Also, in terms of physical connectivity, the most significant is the introduction of the USB-C connection.
The autonomy of the Nexus 6P will fall into a battery with capacity up to 3,450 mAh. According to the data provided by the manufacturer, it has improved the usage times of the computer with the screen off compared to the Nexus 6, although no further data is available. The equipment is compatible with fast charging in such a way that it is able to recharge the battery for 10 minutes enough to offer a range of up to seven hours.
