Nexus 6 to have 5.92-inch QHD display, looks like the Moto X

Nexus 6 Render

The Nexus 6 is one of the last big handsets to arrive in 2014, and there’s been plenty of speculation with its name, release date, and size. Oddly enough, the specs seem to line up across the board for the most part, but the size and style have largely been a mystery. Tonight we got a Nexus 6 render based off the supposed device, and it may look a wee bit familiar.

The renders come from 9to5Google who made them in-house based of the mysterious Nexus 6. Their sources have said the device will keep the same stylings as the new Moto X, but in a bigger package around 6-inches. There are a few other changes as you can see by the renders, but it really does look like a larger version of the recently released Moto X. It’s certainly not a stretch considering Motorola has its hand in both devices.

The report goes on to say that the Nexus 6 will feature a monstrous 5.92-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440.It will have a Snapdragon 805 under the hood, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage although a 64GB variant is a possibility. No word on a microSD card slot, but the handset will have a large 3,200mAh battery to power that big display.

The rear camera of the Nexus 6 is rumored to be 13MP while the front-facing shooter is said to be the same 2MP sensor found on the front of the new Moto X. As it’s a Nexus device, it will obviously run Android L straight out of the box, and a wide release of L is expected soon after the Nexus 6 rolls out. The report pegs an announcement for some time in October with a probable November release.

The large size of the Nexus 6 is going to draw some criticism, as it’s bigger than the Galaxy Note or LG G3 which are 5.5-inch devices. They aren’t pocket friendly, and the Nexus 6 would be even bigger if the report pans out. It’s not the first time we’ve heard of a Shamu sized slate either, so it could definitely be legit. We’ll know soon enough as October is right around the corner.
