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!
