Google Nexus X / Nexus 6 / Motorola Shamu reportedly looks like a giant Moto X

We’ve been hearing about a Motorola-made Google Nexus 6 / Nexus X (codenamed Shamu) for quite a while now, but no images of it have been made available. Well, today, 9to5Google posted a mock-up image that’s reportedly based on the real next-gen Nexus smartphone.

According to the mock-up image (click to enlarge) and 9to5Google’s sources, the Nexus X looks a lot like Motorola’s Moto X (2014 model), but it’s bigger - sporting a 5.92-inch display, instead of a 5.2-inch one. It also has a larger, 3200 mAh battery - that’s 900 mAh more than what you get with the Moto X. 

The rest of the new Nexus handset’s alleged features are in line with what we previously heard: quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 12 MP rear camera with 4K video recording, and a 2 MP front-facing camera. The giant 5.92-inch screen of the handset supposedly offers a 1440 x 2560 (Quad HD) pixel resolution which translates into a 498 ppi density. 9to5Google says that the upcoming smartphone will “almost certainly” be Nexus-branded. Well, that's what our own sources are saying, too.

Rumors have it that the Nexus X will be officially announced in mid-October, allegedly alongside an HTC-made Nexus 9 tablet. Both devices could go on sale starting November, possibly running Android L out of the box. All in all, exciting times are ahead - but we were expecting this anyway, because Google seems to have made a habit of releasing new Nexus gear in this time of the year.
