The new Nexus smartphone, the Nexus X or Nexus 6 (codenamed Motorola Shamu), is thought to be the next flagship Android smartphone from Google which could launch this afternoon with Android L. So here we take a look at the possible Nexus X release date along with rumoured price, specs, performance and features UK.
Although tech sites have been referring to the new Nexus smartphone 2014 as the Nexus 6, it's more likely that Google will call it the Nexus X or Nexus 5 2014. It didn't change the name of the Nexus 7 with its follow-up model, plus the replicants in Blade Runner go by the name Nexus 6.
Nexus 6: Leaks and images look like huge Moto X
As you can see above via 9to5Google, we have an idea of what the Nexus 6 smartphone will look like. The mock-up is based on the Moto X as the Nexus 6 will reportedly be a bigger version of Motorola's flagship handset. It's going to look almost identical according to the site and apart from being made larger, will have the volume and power buttons moved downwards. The leak also includes detailed information on specs which we'll outline below.
Below are two more images of the Nexus 6 putting more weight on the device being firmly in a phablet category of the market and a similar size to the iPhone 6 Plus. Via Android Police and XDA Developers.
