While we’re still arguing over what the next Nexus smartphone is going to be called, 9to5Google has managed to get their hands on a photo of the Motorola manufactured device and posted it for all to see. Codenamed the Motorola Shamu and allegedly called the Nexus 6 or Nexus X, the device in this rumour appears to be a 5.9-inch monster, much like what we have been expecting. It may look suspiciously like the new Moto X from the front and back, rear power button and all, but the positioning of the lock and volume buttons give away a lot about the device’s intentions. Being such a big device, Motorola and Google look determined to make one-handed operation an option, if not a priority – we’ll see if there are any software add-ins to make this further obvious.
The Shamu/Nexus 6/Nexus X is expected to make an appearance alongside the HTC-manufactured Nexus 9 tablet either on October 15th or 16th, which will be followed by the formal release of Android L on November 1st. We’re still unsure if this device is going to replace the Nexus 5, or if previous rumours are correct and Google will release a refreshed Nexus 5 along side it, but we don’t have long now to wait and see what Google has in store for us.
