This is something curious, and interesting at the same time, since it indicates that the Mountain View company cares about it, but it is striking that it cannot be used by default as soon as the terminal is turned on. The point is that just behind the top speaker on the front Nexus 6 is where the component is.
Also, this LED is RGB type, so it is able to change the hue of the color in which it lights up, something that is also positive since in this way you can choose one or the other depending on each application that issues the notice in question. Thus, the information it provides is much greater and useful, of course.
Yes, it is possible to activate it
As has been learned, this LED of the Nexus 6 can be activated for regular use without affecting the operation of the terminal. To do this, the first thing to do is root (unprotect) the device, which you can do by following the steps indicated in this Android Help link. Of course, once the option “Root every command as root“With the tool in question used for the process, at the moment it is only possible to illuminate the LED when charging the device -something that surely changes with time.
The case that the discovery that the Nexus 6 hides an LED is most surprising and interesting, and it does not stop impacting that it is not active by default (Although, certainly, the place he is in is not the best possible). If you are one of those who have a Nexus 6 and are not afraid of manipulations, you already know what can be done with your terminal.
