Galaxy Alpha runs Android 4.4.4 with the latest Touchwiz but it is expected to receive Android L while Nexus 6 will run the new version of Android 5.0.
Samsung Galaxy Alpha has an octacore processor that works really good while Nexus 6 will most probably have the anticipated Snapdragon 805. This is not yet a fact and we will have to wait for the release to find out. If these rumors are true, Nexus 6 will have a better processor than Alpha.
