Google could launch two Nexus smartphones this year
posted by Michael H. / Aug 27, 2014, 10:21 AM
As we learned, there is a 5.9-inch Moto S and a 5.2-inch model in testing and which one we see released will depend on the public reaction to the Moto X+1. According to a source close to the supply chain, Google may be cleaning up the unused devices. The main Nexus X is already set to be 5.9-inches, as we've stated before. 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.
This would explain why we have been seeing leaks here and there for a 5.2-inch Nexus, but far more leaks regarding a 5.9-inch Nexus X. So, come Halloween, we may suddenly see two Nexus smartphones and the new Nexus 8.9 tablet released into the Google Play Store. No doubt, we'll get more info as we get closer to that time, but this is definitely something to keep an eye on.

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

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.

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 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.

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.

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 :)
