The Verizon Motorola Droid Turbo is fairly compact next to Nexus 6, plus it delivers an incredibly powerful battery. A 5.2-inch QHD display, Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 21MP rear-facing camera, and a 3,900mAh battery. The specs are awesome and the screen size is perfect for me… but why did they have to make that chin so ugly?
We get to see the full rendering of the Motorola Droid Turbo, again thanks to @evleaks. IMO, the new Verizon Droid Turbo looks better than the Nexus 6, has a smaller form factor, bigger battery, and offers physical buttons so part of the screen isn’t wasted. I actually really like the back of the red one. The black one looks like it has a case on it due to the texture change at the edges.
The Nexus 6 will be available for pre-order begin on October 29th, $649 is the retail price for the 32GB, the 64GB one bought unlocked will cost $699.
- AT&T – AT&T today confirmed that it will add the Nexus 6 by Motorola, to its industry-leading device portfolio. Pricing and availability will be announced at a later date. Here’s to hoping the leaked image of AT&T price was right $50 on contact. $50 now PLUS $25 per month for 24 months contract which totals $650. They still get their money! Or wait for NEXT details.
- Verizon – release date in November
- Sprint – Sprint customers can pre-register for more information on Nexus 6 at www.sprint.com/nexus6.
- T-Mobile – The Nexus 6 by Motorola will join T-Mobile’s stellar device lineup on November 12 for $0 down (and $27.08 a month for 24 months on our Equipment Installment Plan). The device is going to support “Wi-Fi Un-leashed” from early 2015. After an OTA software update, it’ll become the first Nexus device to support Wi-Fi calling thanks to capabilities baked in to Android 5.0.
- US Cellular – release date in November
The new Nexus 6 is a full featured, high spec phone, which is in line with other ‘flagship’ phones. And it is pure Android. The price is a little high but I’d still buy it if it wasn’t such a gigantic phone, I just don’t need something that large. Features include stereo front speakers, OIS, Quad HD, Fast Charging, Snapdragon 805, 3GB of Ram and Lollipop, and slightly curved. For those watching at home, that’s the GS5, HTC M8, LG G3, LG G3, Motorola, and Google. Its the key features of each all rolled into one!
The AT&T Motorola Nexus 6 for $49.99 on contract? That seems pretty cheap. Hopefully the off contract price will be $299/349. If it’s true, hopefully they’ll be able to keep up with demand. Wouldn’t want another Nexus 4 fiasco where it was pretty much unavailable for 3 months after launch.
That would be interesting, considering this is a Verizon exclusive. The Motorola Droid Turbo looks like a nice replacement for my DNA. Wireless Charging was a must for me, and the large battery will be a great benefit as well. 21MP camera is a very large file and would be testing Data uploads, and storage capacity.
