OpenSignal points out that the specs sheets for both devices claim that they’re capable of connecting to LTE category 6 networks, which means they can deliver peak speeds of 300Mbps.

Nexus 6, white, front and back
Google has taken the wraps off the Nexus 6, a six-inch smartphone (phablet) that is essentially an enlarged Moto X. It runs Android 5.0, which is now officially called Lollipop. It will be available to pre-order from October 29, and will appear in stores/on your doorstep in the first week of November. Pricing starts at $650 off-contract — or about twice what the Nexus 5 cost.

Nexus 9 floating in the air
Google has unveiled the Nexus 9, an HTC-made tablet that will run Android 5.0 Lollipop. Curiously, there’s an 8.9-inch 2048×1536 display — 4:3 aspect ratio, rather than the customary 16:9 — and also BoomSound dual front-facing speakers. Inside the Nexus 9, of course, there’s Nvidia’s 64-bit Tegra K1 SoC. Pricing starts at $400 for the 16GB model, and it’ll arrive in stores (in the US) starting November 3.

Nexus 6 leaks: 5.9-inch Moto monster with 2560×1400 display, 3200 mAh battery

Moto Nexus 6, leaked concept design
It now seems likely that Google’s next Nexus smartphone will be the Motorola-made Nexus 6. Yes, as the numeral indicates, this will be a 6-inch device (or 5.9 inches to be exact, according to some sources). A recent photo of the Nexus 6 (codenamed Shamu) suggests the phone will essentially be a scaled-up version of the new Moto X (and indeed, it might be called the Nexus X instead of the Nexus 6). The latest Nexus 6 leaks have pegged some particularly impressive hardware specs, including a 2560×1440 (QHD) display and a large 3,200+ mAh battery.
