Google Nexus 6 smartphone running Android L in new photos

New photos, purportedly of the upcoming Google Nexus 6 Android flagship smartphone, have emerged. While the photos are quite clear – you can even see on-screen details – the smartphone is encased in a pretty beefy looking protective case partly spoiling one of our first clear looks at the handset.

Android Police first published the photo of the Google Nexus 6 yesterday, apparently photographed in use on a train somewhere. Now the same news source has supplemented its expose with an additional photo from another angle.

We can’t see the full edges of the phone and the connectors and buttons that might have revealed – due to the case and photo angles – Also the case makers have left exposed the connectors and buttons you might use day in day out like the volume rocker and sleep/wake button. Also in evidence is a centre cutout at the top of the smartphone which is a headphone socket we presume.

The purported Nexus 6 is definitely running the upcoming Android L mobile OS. You can see this from the status icons and ‘material’ design showing though in the UI. Interestingly we can also see in studying the photos that there is some kind of Health wearable paired with this smartphone – a little heart is visible in the status bar. As a Nexus device users will also, of course, enjoy an unpolluted unskinned Android OS experience with fast updates whenever Android gets revised.

From the views we have it is estimated that the handset screen size quite 6-inches but it is approaching that size. Android Police says that the new Google Nexus 6 will be launched between the middle of this month and early November. So we should have the full details at that time.
