We haven’t heard a great deal about the Nexus 6, but over the last couple of days the rumour mill has gone into overdrive spewing out potential specifications for Google’s next handset. Specifications that are fairly conflicting.
The first set of specs claims that the Nexus 6 will comes with a rather large 5.9-inch 1080p screen, with a Snapdragon 801 processor. This seems unlikely considering that 5.9-inches is a bit of a leap from the Nexus 5’s 5-inch screen, and a Snapdragon 801 processor is starting to become a bit dated as far as processors go.
New specs that popped up today claim that the Nexus 6 will in fact have a 5.2-inch QHD display and a Snapdragon 805 processor, specs that seem far more realistic for a device that’s supposed to be an upgrade to the Nexus 5.
There is nothing that confirms these rumours, so it’s possible that the specifications have simply been made up. But with the official announcement of the Nexus 6 expected in the coming months, we don’t have long to wait. Until then the rumour-mill will no doubt do its job. [Tom’s Hardware]
