The Nexus 6 is Made by Motorola, and is Terrifyingly Massive

By Chris Mills on at

According to 9to5Google, this is the next Nexus device: a Motorola-made, 5.92-inch behemoth. In other words, the next Nexus could be the mother of all phablets.

9to5Google claims to have sources 'directly familiar' with the upcoming device, set to be launched in mid-October for a November release. The specs they've been leaked include a hand-torturing 5.92-inch, 1440p display, Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage.

Although this report should be taken with a few healthy fistfuls of salt, those specs mostly match up with previous leaks, which have pegged the same 5.9-inch display, and a design broadly inspired by the existing Moto X. A Nexus phablet would also make sense at this stage: the Nexus 5 is actually still a decent phone, and really doesn't need a like-for-like replacement, so a phablet to sit alongside the Nexus 5 in the Play Store (and challenge the iPhone 6 Plus) makes sense at this stage (although 9to5Google also speculates that we might see more than one Nexus device out of Moto).
