From time to time, Google releases a smartphone that boasts the latest capabilities of Android. It’s essentially a specimen for other Android handsets to follow. This year, the search giant has partnered with Huawei to come up with the new Nexus 6P.

The successor to the Nexus 6 of yesteryear, the Nexus 6P introduces several hardware upgrades. Perhaps the most notable improvement is the main camera. Its sensor has larger pixels to capture more light, faster focus using infrared laser and f/2.0 aperture. Front camera features aren’t bad either: laser autofocus, 4K video recording and slow-mo capture.
