Google has struck quite the cord with consumers with its Nexus line of smartphones, but what will the Nexus 6 materialize into? According to the latest rumors, Google will continue production with LG as it did with the last two Nexus smartphones, with the Nexus 6 being based off of the upcoming, and unannounced G3 smartphone.
The company has confirmed it will be launching the Nexus 6 in the second half of this year, which it has done with the previous two Nexus smartphones. The Nexus 6 will reportedly feature a fingerprint scanner, like Apple's iPhone 5S and Samsung's Galaxy S5. We should expect some serious horsepower, with a 5.2-inch QHD display, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 505 SoC which will see a quad-core processor clocked at 2.7GHz, 3GB of RAM and either 16GB or 32GB of on-board flash storage.
LG will reportedly bake a 5.5-inch QHD panel onto its G3, so a 5.2-inch panel on the Nexus 6 would see a slight shrink. We should also expect the Nexus 6 to see the next major version of Android on-board, hopefully arriving with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
