More and more information about the Nexus 6 are aligning and the highly-rumored device will most definitely ship with a QHD 5.9 inch display (1440 x 2560), Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB, and will ship with the most-anticipated Android upgrade to date. 
This device definitely has monster specifications, especially when comparing it to other Google Nexus devices. The one thing it has us wondering, is will it come at the same $300-400 price range? The new and critically-acclaimed (and not so much acclaimed…invite system) phone company OnePlus has shown us that we can get a flagship device, without the flagship cost. The only thing, is that it costs the company much profit.
The OnePlus One comes in at two prices, $300 for the 16 GB model and $350 for the 64 GB model. This is eye-catching, due to the fact that phones such as the LG G3, with nearly identical specs comes in at around $500. 
Will Google follow this mantra? Google is one of the biggest if not most known tech companies in the world. They did so with the Nexus 5, considering it still was a little higher than the price of the One, however it was still different for the time. 
If Google wants the Nexus 6 to be successful, it will have to come in under the $500 price range. We expect the Nexus to be sold from between $400-500, close to the price of the new Moto X. That enticing consumers looking for a high-end device to skip over the G3 at $500+ and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 at $750. Only time will tell, and we’ll find out soon. 
With more and more information coming about surrounding this device, we can get a clear picture of what this Google phone will come with. The new Nexus is expected to be debuted this Halloween on October 31st. 
The question is, will you be picking up the Nexus 6? Let us know!
