We have been steadily seeing Google’s new UI concept, Material Design making its way into our devices over the last couple of months in small KitKat updates, but the full experience is something else entirely.
Google has just released its new version of Android, and the company is showing it off on a new slate of Nexus devices: A 9-inch tablet and a coming phone, the Nexus 6.
A number of Google’s stalwart icons and applications have been re-imagined and there’s also a host of new functions. Material Design extends to all of Google’s apps, services and products.
Last month, after weeks of rumors, Google finally confirmed the Android L update as Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The update will be accompanied by two new Nexus devices , a Nexus 9 from HTC and a Nexus 6 from Motorola, and they will help user in a new era for Google and its Android operating system.
It is said that the Nexus 6 — 32GB and 64GB — models are expected to be priced between ₹40,000 and ₹49,000 in India
Motorola is expected to host a local launch event for Google Nexus 6 on 18 November in India, (added The Indian Express). The event most likely will be used as a stage to kick-off the pre-order service, before rolling out the smartphone next month.
For the uninitiated, Nexus 6 sports 5.96-inch QHD (2560x1400p) AMOLED display and ships with new Android 5.0 Lollipop OS, Qualcomm 805 series Snapdragon CPU, 3GB RAM, 32GB/64GB inbuilt memory, 13.0-megapixel main camera, a 2.0-megapixel snapper on the front and 3220 mAh battery.
