Thar she blows: the Motorola Shamu, Nexus 6, Nexus X shows its face (and rear)

shamufinal22 e1411609908307 Thar she blows: the Motorola Shamu, Nexus 6, Nexus X shows its face (and rear)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.

What do you think about the appearance of the Motorola Shamu/Nexus 6/Nexus X? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
