Google Nexus X (Motorola Shamu) with Android L caught in the wild?

Google Nexus X (Motorola Shamu) with Android L caught in the wild?
As you may have already heard, Google is getting ready to launch the largest Nexus smartphone ever: a 5.9-inch handset manufactured by Motorola. Previously known as Motorola Shamu, or Google Nexus 6, the device will most likely be released as the Nexus X.

Last week, we showed you what’s believed to be the first in-the-wild photo of the Nexus X. While that photo only showed the handset’s back, we now have another image that allegedly allows us to take a look at a working Nexus X from the front.

Posted by Android Police, the new photo shows the device running Android L. The handset is protected by a snap-on cover, and is obviously huge - apparently larger than most users would want it to be. Design-wise, the Nexus X seem to be a scaled up version of Motorola’s Moto X, so it’s got dual front-facing speakers. The 5.9-inch display of the handset reportedly has 1440 x 2560 pixels, while other features should include a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, 13 MP rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization, and a 3200 mAh battery. As mentioned a few days ago, the Nexus X may also come with new Google Apps folders.

We’re expecting the Nexus X to be officially introduced by Google later this month. Stay tuned for more details as we get them.

Update: We added another photo that provides a better view of the giant smartphone!

For those complaining it is too large: it actually may be smaller than the iphone6+. http://i.imgur.com/0nidR1Z.jpg

Bezels play an important role on this phone. If the phone is compact (despite of the 5.9" display) I could grab one. If not, I'll keep my Nexus 4 or rather get a Moto X (which is the closest thing to a Nexus phone)

Get a Nexus 5, it actually handles better than the Nexus 4. It's not even bigger at all really. It actually seems smaller in handling.

I know but I'm so in love with my N4, and trust me, even at his age (2yr already) still works like a charm. and it's white Mwahahahaha

Heard that N4 will get Android L too. I can't even think of any color other than black on a phone unless it's a lumia.

Nexus 4 in white it's just beautiful. Completely sold out after 1 month of being released on the Play store. Lucky me

The iPhone 6 plus is HUGE though so that's not much of an achievement, even for a 5.9 inch screen.

But it has similar dimensions to the Note 3, which is pretty impressive since it has a larger screen. I don't think this is the Nexus 6, it's probably the Moto S running Android L. I seriously doubt the Nexus 6 would have an identical design to the Moto X.

Apple is known for using large bezels. Its almost the size of the Lumia 1520, which has a 6 inch display.

The home button takes 70% credit for that :)

Not going to lie, I wish the iPhone + had a smaller footprint.
