Yesterday image renderings of what the Motorola Nexus device would look like surfaced. They showed us an early look at the front and back of what is supposedly code-named “Shamu”. Hardware information came along with the renders that indicated a 5.92-inch QHD resolution screen with a resolution of 2560×1440. Other details listed out a Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 13MP camera and 32GB of internal storage. There is now a new image floating around the internet that places a mystery Motorola device, face down, along side a LG G3. It is quite a bit larger. Check it out.
This would seemingly confirm the screen size of a new Motorola device as we know the screen on the LG G3 is 5.5-inches. Zooming into the label you don’t get any information at all as all the fields are marked with xxxxx. The only thing we do know for sure is that it is designed by Motorola. It says so on the label. Looking closely at the camera in the center though you can see the dual LED flashes on either side of the ring. This was also present on the renders that 9to5Google showcased yesterday. There is no doubt that this is an early prototype of the device, but just which device is it.
The original poster wants you to believe that it is the next Nexus device. Hence the wonderful labeling that was done with some paper and a piece of tape. That doesn’t detract from the fact that we know there is something on the way though. It is very likely that this is the Nexus 6, but that is me just going off of the last renders depicting a similar device that was previously claimed as the next Nexus. That could be terribly wrong as well. There have been talks of Google working with Verizon on a device, there have been talks of a Moto S phablet style device and even talks that Google will be doing a double Nexus device this year. Yes, two sizes to choose from. Kind of like Apple just did with the iPhone.
Everything is up in the air and we are all just dropping speculations left and right. One could always use a little more wood on the fire, right? What are your thoughts? Is this the Nexus 6? Nexus X? Moto S? Or perhaps it is the Moto Droid MAXX. My guess doesn’t involve the last two choices.
