The Motorola Nexus 6, one of the first Android 5.0 Lollipop phones, is official. The short version is we've got a 6-inch, Snapdragon 805-powered handset with a whopping QHD display resolution and an all-new version of Google's mobile OS. No firm dates yet on when we'll be able to get it, but we do at least know that Google will sell it from the Play Store starting at $649.
We've got the long version after the break, including bands for both the North American and Rest of World models.
