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.

    love every nexus phone that came out – but dont own even one. reason? the price. i probably share this view with most people looking for a high-end phone, that pricing (and arguably weak marketing) only makes apple and samsung phones more attractive.

    Nexus Protect is an add-on not a freebie like the $50 Play credit and 90-day Google music.. $69 for the Nexus 5X, $89 for the 6P. You pay $79 for phone replacement in case of accidental damage, maximum twice over the 2-year warranty period
