Google Debuts Its New Flagship Smartphone: Google Nexus 6P
In a rather intimate event held earlier in San Francisco, Google has officially announced the newest hero device for its Nexus portfolio, the Google Nexus 6P.
Most of the things that the rumor mill has churned out about Google’s new smartphone have been spot on. For instance, the Nexus 6P was said to sport a 5.7-inch display with a Quad-HD (2560 x 1440) resolution, and indeed it is equipped with that kind of panel.

Other features of the new Google Nexus 6P include a sleek aluminum body that measures only 7.3 mm at its thickest, a pair of front-facing speakers, Nexus Imprint (fingerprint scanner) with Google Pay integration, USB Type-C port and a 12.3-megapixel sensor made by Sony which has a significantly larger pixel size of 1.55 micron.
The new Google Nexus 6P will be available for pre-order on Google Store starting today. It will be offered in three storage capacities (32GB, 64GB and 128GB) and are priced at $499, $549 and $649 respectively.
To further sweeten the deal, each new Google Nexus 6P will come with 90-day access to Google Music, $50 Google Play Store app credit, as well as a Nexus Protect warranty which effectively doubles the amount of warranty coverage of the smartphone.
