This can be a little ordinary. We've got been listening to a large number of speak about 2016's Google Nexus releases, however none of them thus far have pointed to a a lot more simple method of merely re-issuing the Nexus 6P with an upgraded processor; however in keeping with this new set of benchmarks leaking on-line that may be one thing at the playing cards. The Geekbench effects obviously display the handset labelled as a "google Nexus 6P", on the other hand, the place the unique type has a Snapdragon 810 and 3GB of RAM, this model has Android N and a brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with 4GB of RAM. This improve, if actual, will make remaining yr's Nexus 6P way more competetive with competitors that experience emerged since, such because the HTC 10, Samsung Galaxy S7, and LG G5.

Google is rather well-established as partnering up with more than one producers directly to get other units made in the similar yr, up to now we have now noticed LG and Huawei, and LG and HTC each being hired on the similar time by way of Google to supply Nexus hardware of 1 shape or some other.

The re-booted Nexus 6P additionally does have compatibility with rumours we heard previous within the yr that Huawei would proceed to spouse with Google inside of 2016 at the Nexus logo, it merely signifies that it is not creating a "new" telephone, however re-jigging the prevailing one.
