These photos were taken with Google’s Nexus 6

Google’s new Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 devices aren’t going to be available for a few more weeks. However, now that they have received an official unveiling, we’re seeing little bits and pieces of information about them sneak onto the internet.

Yesterday, we got our first look at the Nexus 9 outside of Google’s official product videos and photos. Today brings us photos captured by the newest Nexus smartphone, the Nexus 6. First spotted by BGR, these photos were uploaded to Google+ by Duan Dao, who according to LinkedIn works for T-Mobile USA.

The camera is one of the most exciting aspects of the Nexus 6, especially for those that endured the less than stellar camera on the Nexus 5. It packs in a 13MP sensor with OIS and an f/2.0 lens with dual LED flash. It’s helped along with HDR+ and Google’s upgraded camera app for Android 5.0.

The pictures in the gallery below are the ones uploaded by Dao to Google+ (though they’re no longer available on Google’s social network).  Judging by this very small sampling of photos, the camera is a little grainy indoors. Still, we’re eager to test the camera for ourselves, and compare it to other smartphone cameras out there.

The Nexus 6 is up for pre-order on October 29th and will ship in early November. It starts at $749 here in Canada. That will net you the 32GB model. No word on how much you’ll have to pay for the 64GB model just yet.
