The Motorola-built Nexus 6 is set to feature a number of technology upgrades over its smaller sibling, the Nexus 5, not least of which is Google's soon to be released Android Lollipop operating system.
Key selling points include a sizeable 6in quad HD display and advanced 13MP camera which Google claims will match, if not beat, the performance of competing top-end handsets.
Motorola has also radically rethought traditional Nexus designs and made the Nexus 6 chassis out of contoured aluminium, as opposed to polycarbonate.
The Nexus 6 is set to be a powerhouse device and will run using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805, 2.7GHz quad-core processor and feature 3GB of RAM.
The Nexus 6's 3220mAh battery will feature a 'Turbo Charger' that will offer a claimed six hours of battery life from a 15-minute charge. As an added perk the handset will also feature wireless charging support.
Android Lollipop, originally called Android L, was unveiled at Google's IO conference and is set to offer a number of new software and security features. Key additions include a reworked 'Material' user interface and direct integration of Samsung's Knox security service.
Knox is an enterprise-focused feature that lets IT managers set up a separate password-protected area on the phone that encrypts and protects data.
The 'Material Design' aims to make the OS simpler to use and replaces Android KitKat's user interface with a flatter one similar to that of Apple's iOS 7. The upgrade also allows Android's UI to mimic depth by adding new shadow effects.
The Nexus 6 will be available for pre-order in late October and in shops in November in the US. Google has yet to reveal the Nexus 6 pricing or which carriers will support it come its release in the UK.
