At the back, the device will sport 13 MP camera and 5 MP front-facing camera. The handset will be equipped with Bluetooth, NFC, Micro-USB, Wi-Fi and 4G. Like the previous Google devices, Nexus 6 will be announced alongside new Android OS. The Web site claimed the Android 4.5 OS will be named Lollypop.
