Google Nexus 6 is Getting Ready to Set New Records

The industry is a buzz with rumors on upcoming Smartphones. One of them is LG G3, the other one is Google Nexus 6. The rumor mill seems to produce new rumors on these devices everyday, more so because LG is said to be the manufacturer of Nexus 6. Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8 and iPhone 6 will also release in this year. The whole attention is currently on Nexus 6 and G3.

Rumors on LG G3 hinted that Nexus 6 could have design and features similar to G3. As those rumors somewhat undermined Nexus 6, industry observers dug deep and came to the decision that Nexus 6 will have some independent features which are quite interesting.  One should keep in mind that chief competitors of Nexus 6 will be Apple iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8. Google therefore, needs to equip its next Nexus device impeccably so it could take those competitors.

Some of the features that industry sources expect in Nexus 6 are stunning display, Smartwatch extension and Android 4.5. The display of Nexus 6 will be highly similar to LG G3. Some sourced reported Nexus 6 will have a 6.3 inch screen with Quad HD display. Nexus 6 could have 2560 x 1440 resolution display, same as G3.

Moreover, as Google's Chromecast TV dongle enables users to view live streaming of web content in television, some are even speculating that Nexus 6 will allow users to view internet based content on their handset. It's not a far-fetch speculation because Chromecast TV is Google's own product and this is a golden opportunity for Google to market it. Besides, the 2K resolution of Nexus 6'S screen is perfect to watch live streaming.
Google Nexus 6 specifications
There is possibility that Nexus 6 releases with Smartwatch. LG and Motorola are two companies behind manufacturing Smartwatch. While Motorola is owned by Lenovo now, there will be not be changes in the product lineup that are scheduled to release. LG on the other hand is the manufacturing partner with Google to build Nexus 6. Some analysts held Google's basic idea was to surprise users with a Smartwatch that acts as a remote controller for mobile phone as well.

Nexus 6 is likely to feature a new Android OS. Google may update Android 4.4 KitKat. If that happens, Nexus 6 might release with the updated Android version. According to some, it will be Android 4.5 Lolipop or Lion Bar. There is another possibility although not much likely. Nexus 6 may release with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. However, there hasn't been any indication from any corner that this will happen.

The release date of Nexus 6 is not yet decided. Sundar Pichai, the VP of Google's Android division earlier said Nexus 6 could be released in October this year. A late Q3 or early Q4 release date is quite likely as by the same time, other competitor devices will also show up. During this year's MWC, Mr. Pichai made it clear that Nexus 6 is not coming in the first half of this year. This year's Google I/O is where Nexus 6 could be showcased for the first time and we will get to know all the specs of the device.

However if the rumors turn true, with a 6.3 inch screen, 3GB RAM, 16MP rear camera and new version of Android, Nexus could easily set new records. There's no doubt of it.

Samsung Note 4 with Exynos 16-core processor: Specs & Features

Just like Galaxy S4, the Galaxy Note 3 that was released recently had two SoCs variants. This variation is primarily supposed to meet the differentiated market segment in various regions.  In areas where LTE network is well established, Samsung released a QUALCOMM’s snapdragon 800 soc. In areas where LTE network is not available, Exynos Octa 5420 SoCs version was released. Both of the devices have been reviewed in terms of performance, so that the consumer would know which device is better than the other. When put thorough An Tu Tu, the snapdragon 800 SoCs version was seen to be faster. Still, the exynos version was seen to have more idle memory than the snapdragon 800 SoCs version.
Samsung Note 4 review
Improvements Are Underway
Some of the reviews made concerning different versions of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be very useful while developing the next device, Galaxy Note 4. This is essentially important to ensure that the consumer is indifferent while using either of the versions in different markets. Samsung is keen to observe how both of the versions will sell, and how the competitors are reacting to the release. Information on some new features to be included in the Galaxy Note 4 includes:
Long Distance Wireless Charging
Samsung is about to get serious with wireless phone charging. Many other competitors such as Nokia have not appealed the Smartphone users with their wireless devices. The process to charge them is said to be cumbersome, and only works within small distances. However, the consumers fancy using a device that can be charged from longer distances. Samsung is about to release Galaxy Note 4 next year, a device can be charged meters away from the power source. This is made possible due to the magnetic resonance technology that is going to be featured on this phablet. The long distant charging is not only meant for the Galaxy Note 4 device, but also for other electrical appliances such as refrigerators and laptops. This way, Samsung will be benefiting with the sale of its other devices and from the sale of the next phablet
‘Anti Shake’ Feature
The Samsung’s galaxy Note 3 did not seem to offer the consumers a different imaging experience from what is already found in Galaxy Note 2. However, a different twist will be revealed next year when the new camera in galaxy note 4 will feature an anti-shake which allows the consumer to take images in lowly lit areas. If this holds true, most of the competitors have a reason to worry. The consumer has always demanded such a device, and Samsung may receive a huge success in the long run.
Other Features
Galaxy note 4 will also feature:
  • Flexible display
  • 4GB RAM
  • Full HD resolution
  • 16 core processor
  • 3300ah battery
  • 64 GB internal storage capacity
