It’s almost certain that Motorola’s building the Nexus 6 smartphone. Unlike former rumours that have indicated that LG might be making the looming mobile device, a new set of details have surfaced, outlining its make and some of its features.
Thanks to Android Police, the Nexus 6, nicknamed Shamu, is now a hot topic and brings to light some of the rumours that have been circulating the Web. The source was allegedly “provided with new information about the Nexus phone” and confirms it will be a 5.9in device.
Android Police claims it will look like the Moto X, and released an image of it that’s essentially a larger variation of the former. If you look closer at the snap, you’ll find that the purported Nexus 6 has black front-facing speakers, in addition to an enormous screen.

Putting aside its good looks, the home screen shows a new set of app logos (could they be one of the features of Android L?) and some tweaked icons for Maps and Google. Some of the status icons are also said to be refreshed for the device, although we’d have to see it to believe it.
There wasn’t a picture of the back of the device but the source adds that you can expect it to sport the same aluminium frame that's on the Moto X. It'll also house a 13MP rear snapper with OIS and a dual-flash ring configuration.
Other features it’s said to have include a 3200mAh battery, a QHD, 496ppi display, and a 2MP front camera. By the way, it also appears to be compatible with Motorola’s turbo charger – basically for faster charging. If these features aren't enough to get you excited about the new Nexus phone, we'll update with more details once they're in.
