Google could introduce the new Nexus 6 in October, according to a new report. 9to5Google is reporting that the new handset will start selling in the last quarter of 2014.
The same report also suggested that U.S-based T-Mobile will be among the many mobile carriers to sell the forthcoming Android L-powered Nexus 6. Interestingly, the Nexus 6 is rumored to get Wi-Fi calling feature from T-Mobile, which seems to be a good idea.
The U.S Telco T-Mobile is already providing Wi-Fi calling service on a number of Android running phones, claims 9to5Google.
Until now, neither Google nor T-Mobile has properly spelled anything in respect to the Nexus 6. Thus it is advisable to take this rumor as a pinch of salt.
Google's Nexus 5, which went on sale in late last year, continues to the best handset in terms of horse power. Well now we're in 2014, so logically the successor to the Nexus 5 should be launched in days to come.
Some are reporting that Google might have killed off the Nexus range, in favor of its Android Silver program. For now nothing is official yet and the Nexus 6 could arrive sometime next month around Holidays.
