Mountain View, CA, United States (4E) – Google is gearing up for the release of Nexus X, its top of the line smartphone that is to succeed last year’s Nexus 5.The next Nexus phone is reported to be manufactured by the search company’s previous hardware arm – Motorola. Even though the mobile company is slowly getting out of the Big G’s umbrella, things are still getting pretty much on hand when it comes to Nexus X’s specifications.
With the Moto 360-maker’s reputation of assembling well-built and feature rich devices, the next Nexus installment is in good hands. Several Antutu benchmarks suggest that the device will churn out the closest competition with its 2.7-gigahertz quad-core Snapdragon 805 chipset and Adreno 420 GPU. Digging inside its internals, you’ll find the beefy 3GB of RAM and 32 gigs of built-in memory. Additionally, the 5.2-inch screen will sport a stunning 2K display that frames 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution.
Talking about optics, the rear camera will have a flagship-grade 13-megapixel sensor. On the software side of things, we are expecting the Android 5.0 over the previously rumoured version 4.5. Although Google has yet to announce whether it would stick with Android L or go with a different codename, the Material Design UI will still define the whole experience.
The search giant has announced the Android L developers preview earlier this year together alongside several platforms like Android Auto and Google Fit, to name a few. Android Wear is also gaining good numbers with several manufacturers getting on-board the wearable space. The Nexus X is slated to come in the last quarter of the year when Google announces the primetime availability of Android L.
