So there has been a lot of conflicting reports out of motorola.
Some of the most recent news is any 5.2 inch Moto nexus device has been scrapped as we previously reported as well as phonearena. These devices have been repurposed for the Droid Turbo line and a ATT rebranded of the same device. (Think droid razr and Moto atrix hd)
So that means there will be a 5.9 inch nexus device for sure from motorola. But what about the Moto S.
Well the latest info from our sources are the following.
The Moto S and Nexus 6 are virtually the same device yet different.
According to the source the logic board will be exactly the same on both devices. BUT…. According to the source there could be a button or other feature on the back of the Nexus Phone not the Moto S.
I pressed the source for more info is it a finger print scanner or a button? Nothing confirmed from them either way. (It’s worth noting that we heard this about the Moto X as well but that didn’t happen)
So what’s the difference? According to the source the Nexus device may not have the Moto Branding on that back (button/scanner) and the Moto S is essentially the same device except it will be available for Verizon and have a Moto X 2014 stock experience.
Basically a blown up Moto X with higher specs.
So is Verizon getting the Nexus 6? I highly doubt it, in fact I’ll say NO right now.
I think all the confusion on this matter is the fact that the Nexus 6 aka Nexus X and the Moto S look so similar they are hard to tell apart.
We are meeting with a source on Sunday to take a look at the Moto S prototype so stay tuned. Then it could make things a lot clearer.
Remember we’ve already seen this device from awhile back and it does line up with every nexus rumor except that button/scanner let’s see if it’s right.
