What does the warranty cover?

I bought the 32GB white from the play store. Now remembering that the nexus 4 and 5 both had updated hardware, nexus 4 with the bumps to raise the phone while its down for the speaker to be louder and the 5 had bigger holes for the speaker and the buttons on the sides had a fix also.

If down the line nexus 6 has a hardware update can I still send this first day phone for a newer one?

Warranties typically cover "manufacturing defects." Whether a hardware update is made to fix a "defect," or just an upgrade, will be something Google decides. Using one your examples, if Google were to change the buttons on the Nexus 6 because they failed to work properly, the warranty would cover yours IF the buttons aren't working right. But if yours are working, Google would have no obligation to change them to the newer design or replace your phone. They might choose to do so, as a goodwill gesture, but warranties typically only require the manufacturer to fix things that are broken.
