Google is expected to launch its next generation Nexus smartphones next week, where Android Police have secured the latest details on the larger Nexus 6P.


The Nexus 6P will rock a 5.7-inch QHD (2560x1440) display, housed inside of a "metal unibody" which is "slim and sophisticated" according to the leaked details. Inside, it will feature Qualcomm's yet-announced Snapdragon 810 v2.1 (the v2.1 bit is what Qualcomm hasn't disclosed just yet), with a 3450mAh battery, dual front-ported speakers, USB Type-C and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Google will be including a fingerprint sensor on the Nexus 6P, and better power efficiency with longer battery life thanks to something Google calls 'Doze'. Doze is a part of Android Marshmallow, where "when your device is at rest, Doze automatically puts it into a sleep state". The Nexus 6P will be made by Huawei, and comes in Aluminium, Graphite, Frost and Gold (with Gold only available in Japan, "for now"). The Nexus 6P will also arrive in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities.
