I think you may be right.
One 32bit an one 64bit.

Nexus Smartphone 5.2"
Nexus Phablet 5.9"
Nexus Tablet 8.9"
Wow Q4 is going to awesome...

I hope it retains the front facing speakers from the Moto leaks. And i also hope they don't cut corners to make it.

I really hope these Nexus' BOTH come out for Verizon Wireless. Man do we need a Nexus device.
I might buy the 5.9 inch Nexus X over a Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition. I really just might if Verizon were to drop it.

Don't be ridiculous. Verizon can't abide a phone it doesn't own the updates on (unless it's an iPhone.) We should have all learned from the GNex that Verizon and Nexus are mutually incompatible.

Just another reason I'm happily leaving Verizon next week. Tmobile at my house (in Indiana, mind you, not NYC or Chicago) is 33Mbps down 10+ up. If I travel, there are such mind blowing apps as offline maps. I have more than enough movies, music, and shows offline to supply my habit.

I am sorry but a phone will never make me leave Verizon. No phone is worth the crappy T-Mobile service.

have fun going offline, I'll be online in an underground cave.

I kindly disagree.
They did it once. I had the Galaxy Nexus when it came out for Verizon & the updates were typically about 2 to 3 weeks behind Google's. To me that's not bad at all.
OEM's take months to half a year or more to update to the current OS.
It REALLY wasn't that bad at all.
The incompatibility is a myth. If the Apple & the iPhone can do it, Google & the Nexus can also.
Money RULES all decisions.

What're you smoking? Jelly bean was on nexus devices in November and didn't make it to the Verizon gnex until March, a full 4 months later.

Isn't the Verizon Galaxy Nexus still waiting on 4.3? I'm pretty sure Verizon commented on the update back in December and said it was coming, but there's still no sign of it. It's been more than a year since the release of 4.3. That's ridiculous.
Our only hope is Android Silver. The Nexus will never come to Verizon again, but Android Silver is specifically made for faster updates on carriers with little to no bloat. 2015 can't come fast enough.

The Verizon Galaxy Nexus is still waiting for the 4.3 update. The 4.2.2 update came at least 6 months after the GSM version came out. "2 to 3 weeks behind" is nowhere near an accurate statement. You are either looking through rose colored glasses, or you never owned a Galaxy Nexus.
29. mrmessma (Posts: 54; Member since: 28 Mar 2012)
As one that owned a G'nex. This is 100% accurate.

Any and all WP receive updates via Microsoft directly..at least my 928 did

I'm all for this if true. Make all customers happy. Of course I'm going for the 5.9. :)

"" But, word has it that if Motorola releases the 5.9-inch Moto S, Google may repurpose the 5.2-inch Moto S units as a second Nexus device."
LOL ,, things don't go according to anyone which is with Google.... Google is MAMA and GRANDPA of all

I don't know, my guts tell me it's the other way around (5.2 Nexus is the one in development), but Michael seems so sure of his source.
19. Taters (Posts: 2822; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
I hope so, 5.9 is just too big. Although we are not out of the woods yet if this is a rushed leftover scraps device, the 5.9 inch could be a flagship and this one mid range.

Come to Verizon...please!!!! Also allow us to put a SD Card in the phone...then I would totally get this phone...
23. Bedz81 (Posts: 51; Member since: 30 Dec 2012)
I want the Moto S @ 5.9 if it has SD slot, expecially if they keep within the same size at the LG G Pro 2 (159mm) LG missed the boat not releasing that in EU and US not Motorola will come in and take over.
I lay in wait....

A 5.9" device is easily big enough for two SD slots so you can run your external storage as a RAID 0 or 1 array :)
