Google has officially unveiled its new smartphone, the Nexus 6. Just as rumors had indicated, it comes with a giant 6-inch screen and is made by Motorola.
The Nexus 6 will be available for preorder in late October and will go on sale in November. The phone will sell for $649 without a two-year contract. That’s a lot more expensive that Google’s Nexus phones have sold for in the past. The Nexus 5 sells for $349 off-contract.
Google also says the Nexus 6 will be available through all five major carriers — including Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. This is surprising, since Google previously only sold its phones through the Google Play store and T-Mobile.
The Nexus 6 is going to look gigantic compared to your average smartphone. With it’s 5.9-inch screen, it’s even larger than the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus and 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 4. It’s one inch shy of being the same size as Google’s Nexus 7 tablet.
