Huawei made a doozy after accidentally posting the pricing details of the Nexus 6P, on our local vmall website. Now invitations have gone out setting the date for the Google x Huawei collaborative device and by the looks of it, some gift boxes might include them just in time for Christmas.
Early adopters might already have the device in their hands, since DirectD began importing the units last week. They’ve been milking eager fans by a pretty margin but all is fair when it comes to grey importers, we suppose.
The aforementioned page that went up on vmall.my listed the device will be on sale for RM 2,698 (w/ GST) for the 64GB model; which is equally stacked against another Huawei device, the Mate S (64GB). Easily pointing to the manufacturer not wanting to bite themselves in the butt by selling the Nexus at a lower price, to keep some emphasis on their other smartphones.
Playing down the state of our currency, it’s likely the heighten pricing is to leave some leeway for the Ringgit to continue to fluctuate. Taking into consideration that the 32GB Nexus 6P sells for US$ 499 (RM 2,128) and the 64GB model goes for US$ 549 (RM 2,341) in the US.
The collaborative effort will bring about the latest version of Android, with Marshmallow finally coming into the horizon. Sizing in at 5.7-inches, you’ll get a QHD display (2560 x 1440), with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 under the hood. Internal memory options were listed above, while it’ll carry 3GB of LP-DDR4 RAM for multitasking and app switching.
In terms of photography, there will be a 12.3-megapixel sensor on the rear that’s equip with 1.55 micron pixels and an aperture of f/2.0 for those low light situations. Accompanying the camera module will be a dual-tone LED and laser auto focus as well. Taking a look at the front, an 8-megapixel f2.4 shutter will greet you near the top; this sensor will carry a 1.4-micron pixel size.
For audio, it’ll boast dual front facing stereo speakers on the top and bottom, while Huawei also deploys USB Type-C for data and charging utilisation. The port itself, will help charge up the 3,450mAh battery that’s inside, while
quick charge 2.0 the future-proof port will help bring it up to speed, just a little quicker – only on particular chargers though; nope those Quick Charge 2.0 charging heads won’t be of any use.
The last bell and whistle would be the Nexus Imprint finger print sensor, that sits below the rear camera lens. A feature that pretty much lined up with Google’s vision to make native fingerprint scanning a thing on Android M.
The announcement couldn’t come any sooner, since they’ve been consumers who are itching to get their own units after DirectD started offering the smartphone. Local warranty and a cheaper price seems like a no-brainer but we hope you waited.
