Motorola’s Nexus 6/X Codenamed “Shamu” Details Leaked [PIC]


Fresh details of the long rumoured Google “Nexus 6” a.k.a the “Nexus X” by Motorola (codename: “Shamu”) have just been leaked by 9to5Google, revealing that the device will sport a massive 5.92-inch diagonal display, while the phablet’s body will be just a bit larger than that. Also, the overall appearance of the device will be more like a “scaled up 2nd generation Moto X with some minor tweaks” to make the larger size easier to use.


Based on specifications leaked previously, Google’s forthcoming “Shamu” phablet is believed to feature a 1440p display, a 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 64-bit ‘Android L’. However, none of these leaks have yet been proved legit.

“The device we’ve learned about is actually going to pack a 5.92-inch screen, as mentioned above, with QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440. This dense screen according to our calculations comes out to be 498 PPI—a fairly impressive number for any smartphone. As such, it’s going to have a battery that is equally impressive, packing 3,200 mAh to power all of those pixels.

As for the camera, it’s actually going to be a 13 MP shooter on the back, and as previously rumored, we can corroborate that it should have the ability to shoot 4K UHD video at launch. As for the front shooter, the device is going to have a 2 MP camera that is identical to the one on the 2nd generation Moto X”.

The alleged device is slated for release in November, with an official announcement expected next month.

    A 5.92 inch screen will make me go to the iPhone6. I don’t like the large screen size and I think anything close to 6 inches is to big for a phone.

    Great. I’m sure it will be a kick ass phone. I really liked my nexus 5. It’s great value for money. But the little, and not so little things add up to make the iPhone a much better phone. Audio output through headphones was low volume and soso quality in the N5 compared to my iPhone 6. The speaker was worse, the battery life was worse and the came in Nexus phones are always bad, regardless of MP count. If it’s based on the Moto X I guess a lot of those problem will be fixed though (except the camera).
