Just when you thought there wasn’t anything left to learn about the upcoming Google Nexus smartphones, along comes a series of leaked slides which provide even more details.

Android Police spotted the slides on Imgur, which remove some of the last pieces of mystery surrounding the 5.7 inch Google Nexus 6P.


Here are a few of the new details provided by the slides, which appear to be designed for marketing purposes:

  • The Nexus 6P is the first Nexus phone with an all-metal body.
  • It has a Gorilla Glass 4 scratch-resistant screen.
  • The phone is powered by a 3450 mAh battery, which is the largest battery for any Nexus phone to date.

Other details confirmed by the slides include the fact that the phone will have a 5.7 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor, 32GB to 128GB of storage, stereo front-facing speakers, a USB Type-C connector, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow software. There’s a  fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone, below the camera, which you can use to unlock the phone, among other things.

Google also appears to be emphasizing the camera, which the slides say is designed to take decent photos in low-light situations using a new Google Camera app which allows for faster focus and capture.

The phone weighs 178 grams, or about 6.2 ounces and the slides confirm it will be available in several colors: aluminum, graphite, and frost. There’s also a gold color option, which appears to be exclusively available in Japan at launch.

  1. Bunch of haters never satisfied.. This is an awesome phone and lots off you are hating on it..loosers

  2. I’m intrigued. Is this going to be unlocked and work on all 4 US networks like the new Nexus 5 is rumored to be? And that battery..daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang.

  3. What’s the point of metal? Polycarbonate is better in case of a fall. Its also better for reception, as we’ve seen in the past.

    Then again, whats the point of the entire Nexus line without MicroSD card slot… Google…?

    1. I prefer plastic, but with the 810 maybe metal is better for heat dissipation?

      As to microSD, Google has security reasons for not liking them. I wish they’d give in though. I’d probably be wiling to give up a removable battery for a device that can be used on any carrier, but I’m not giving up microSD.

      1. The security was because of Google’s rubbish support for them, but Android 6 does have support for microSD cards in a way that Google seem to like (a microSD card can now be used as if it was internal storage). So if the new Nexuses still don’t have microSD cards, it seems Google themselves really don’t like them.

        At least with the Nexus 6 we finally get a decent amount of internal storage (though it comes at a higher price than microSD).

  4. Not another 810. And I was hoping for a good Nexus this year. Maybe if we’re lucky they packed a down clocked 820 and called it an 810.

    1. 820 is out next year, so you can’t expect it this year. My understanding is that the 810 is an updated version that fixes the overheating issues of the first one.

      1. The update is nothing more then telling manufactures to put more heat conductive material to the chip to pull heat away, and they down clocked it too. Its not a true revision more of a band aid.

        1. You know, insufficient heat conducting material and whatever other measures to keep the SoC cool is the responsibility of gadget manufacturers. Qualcomm shouldn’t have to instruct them to design to their box to handle the thermal envelope of whatever they chose to install.

          LG and others were smart enough to say: “we don’t want to change our design to handle the thermal envelope of the 810, so we’re using the 808”

          Some others were less prudent and then chose to blame Qualcomm when their phones caused nothing but problems to their customers.

          Poor way of doing business.

          I’m not sure if I should buy a Z5 with a throttled 810 or if I’ll just wait for the inevitable 820 toting Z5+ next year…

          1. Fine, its their responsibility, but if you want a top tier chip and its placed into these phones, and then have it not perform like a top tier chip then that’s a problem. Much rather would have had the 801,800 or 805. 808,is decent but the 805 has a better GPU. Honestly, the Huawei Kirin looks promising and the X10 from Mediatek is a cool chip as well.

          1. Yeah, I read that article. ArsTechnica did a nice in depth on it too.

        2. I never said it was a “true revision” (whatever that is). All that matters is if the problems are fixed. But I’m sure you have a better understanding of CPU and smartphone design than Google. If more heat conductive material fixes the problem, then great.

      2. lol

        the ‘updated’ version is simply throttled…

        I was hoping to see an 820 in Sony’s Z5 models, but I guess Qualcomm can’t get their own design delivered till next year…

        1. Not sure how that contradicts what I said – throttled/updated, call it what you like. I fail to see how you’re going to see a 2016 CPU in a 2015 device, and if there are overheating issues I’ll judge it based on reviews of the device, not guessing Internet comments before it’s even released.


  5. If you got a Nexus 6, there’s no point in upgrading this year…for those who hung onto the original Nexus 5, now would be a good time to upgrade….the One Plus One 64gb is now $299…that’s probably the best deal for a high end Android phone.

  6. I must say the design is starting to grow on me.. despite the large forehead.

    1. Android police have an image showing it at an angle, and it’s not sticking out, and looks much better.

    1. The fact that manufacturers are still picking that chip makes me more and more inclined to think that the complaints are more tech press nonsense, like the Windows 8/8.1 complaints.

      1. no the issues are real.. I am pretty sure the manufacturers have some kind of deals/partnership/contracts with qualcomm (they have been using its chips for a lot of years now) … that’s why everyone is still using snapdragon 810 and there are still issues on it even after revisions and revisions

        this is pretty much an epic fail of the snapdragon 810

        1. Completely overblown. The 810 might not be the success it could or should have been, but it’s still one of the fastest phone chips out there and is more than capable of keeping up with 99% of what users are going to be doing on the new Nexus 6.

        2. Like I said before, designing to the thermal envelope of a SoC is gadget manufacturers’ responsibility.

          If they don’t want to build a device that can handle the heat of the 810 (which may add weight and thickness), they don’t have to use it. There are lots of other options.

          And the 810 isn’t really a snapdragon, as Qualcomm is using Arm’s design, because they didn’t have their own 64Bit architecture completed in time. That’ll be the 820 coming next year at 14nm.

          So if anything, the epic fail is in getting a late start on a 64Bit design.
