Fans of the Nexus series have long been waiting for the next-gen Nexus smartphone, which could be called the Nexus 6 or the Nexus X. Now, a fresh report coming from 9to5Google publication seems to shed some light on its specs and features, as well as the design and aspect. If you have been following related rumors, then you’ll see that most of these specs seem to confirm what has already leaked before.
The upcoming Nexus 6/X is allegedly going to be manufactured by Motorola and it will be a phablet in the full-meaning of the word. It will sport a behemoth screen of 5.92-inches with the body being just a bit larger than that. Also, it seems that the overall appearance of the device will make it feel like a scaled up second-generation Moto X along with some minor improvements to accommodate the increased size.
One of the most recent leaks came via GFXBench and it suggested the Nexus X, codenamed ‘Shamu’, could sport the following – 5.2-inch 1440p display, 2.6GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter and Android L. Most of these specs are the same in these fresh report, but it is more precise and looks to be very close to reality.
The 5.92-inch screen will have a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440, which means it will have an impressive 498 pixels-per-inch. The Motorola-made Nexus 6 will have a behemoth battery of 3,200 mAh, but still not as powerful as the 3450 mAh one in the recently announced BlackBerry Passport.
The camera is going to be a 13 MP shooter on the back with ability to shoot 4K UHD video. The front shooter will be a standard 2 MP, identical to the one on the 2nd generation Moto X and which will disappoint selfie and video chat lovers. If you’re looking for a better ‘selfie smartphone’, check out the HTC Desire 820, the Sony Xperia C3 or the Lumia 730 and 735.
Powering this beast will be a Snapdragon 805 processor and 3 GB of RAM. It will surely come with a 32 GB storage capacity, but other capacities are also possible, but perhaps with a later release. 9to5Google puts under the question the release of a “Shamu” device capable of running 64-bit Android L. After all, it will be a real shame if Google’s own device won’t take advantage of these performance improvements.
The Nexus 6/X is aiming for a release sometime in November, with the unveiling set in October. Sound off below and let us know what are your thoughts on this premature information that we have on the Nexus 6.
