In the image above and the video going up on youtube you can see the new nexus device next to an iphone 6 plus. The Nexus is clearly wider and slightly bigger than the iphone 6 plus.
Also you may notice the background is the same as other Shamu Leaks we dropped recently as well.
Anyway for the android nexus fans there you go.
More images and video on instagram total_tech_media and youtube
Instagram will be an exclusive place for select few to get leaks sometimes days in advance.
According to sources. Google to this point in time hasn’t obtained Permission or a license to use the Nexus 6 name. And they could negotiate right up till launch. So much so that the retail packaging will have now mention of nexus x or nexus 6 just nexus. This is nothing new we’ve seen this before.
But it looks like Google may have to fall back to the Nexus X name if the nexus 6 licensing cannot go through. Stay tuned as this story is developing. Images are also inbound.
And it looks like more than a nexus phone could be launched by Google, the nexus 9 could also be released as well as two other unnamed handsets, one source says they are low end models and Google play editions of the Moto G 2014 and a HTC Desire with stock android. This would feed the rumors of HTC Nexus Rumors. We will see this coming week.
Stay tuned will update as info is confirmed.
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.
Could these images just be a preproduction Moto X running dev software? Yes….. But other outlets seem to think this is legit.
This could be your first look at a lunch boxed version of the Moto S aka Nexus 6 aka Nexus X.
What are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments below.
Info has been flying in the last few days. And just getting back to the US my email has been slammed.
To the point, here is what I’ve been told thus far.
Looks like the original design on the nexus was scrapped, a new phablet line called the S series aka Moto S is readying launch.
This looks to be a verizon exclusive with Att getting the device after 2 months.
Very high specs as rumored before. QHD display 5.85 aka 5.9 inch display
Snap dragon 805.
According to sources there were two devices slatted to be on the nexus launch list. A 5.2 inch and a 5.9 inch device.
As reported here an elsewhere Moto would scrap or repurpose one of these devices depending on initial Moto x sales.
What does this mean? Well while speculation that the Android Silver line is dead may be true, the first initial devices from Motorola and HTC have already been built, does this mean they will be nexus devices? NO. Not at all.
According to sources Google still may bring android silver to the table, or may repurpose these devices as new Google play edition devices. This is why we see NO NEXUS branding on the Moto S we have seen leaked lately that people are considering a nexus 6 aka nexus x.
The Nexus version of the Moto S will NOT have a Motorola logo in that big circle on the back. But unless something drastically changes will look like the device we have already seen leaked with minor changes.
What about the 5.2 nexus? According to three sources, all providing the same info, the droid turbo was a candidate for this device. But Moto sources do say it was happening but it wasn’t a Moto device.
Does that mean HTC was actually building a nexus phone and pulled back? Or was this LG? We are pushing very hard to get the info. And we will update as we know more. But for now we can say for certain there will be TWO Google phablets coming this fall. One a nexus and one the Moto S.
As for the nexus 6 name. According to a friend at Google they have aggressively gone after licensing for the name. Will it be Nexus X or Nexus 6 we will soon find out as were literally less than 2 weeks away.
A source sent us the images and info below.
That stated we have no way to know the authenticity of the information, so knowing that in advance here is the info we were sent today.
Another image supposedly of the moto shamu aka nexus x aka Moto s leaked earlier this evening.
After checking with sources and with the publications publishing the Moto logo up in the corner (not good for the Moto employee, most likely will cost them their job) a source was able to confirm the image is that of a Moto X developer handset, something interesting we were able to find out was that Motorola has been toying with the idea of a Google play edition Moto X.
Could this image be the shamu, yes it could, but according to our source they state the moto logo tracks back to a Google play Moto x that was on testing.
I will follow up with our sources on the Google play angle as we were earlier told that it was being killed off for android silver.
Maybe with android silver being on hold GPE is coming back.
Let us know your thoughts.
