Is Motorola working in a 5.9-inch Nexus, codenamed Shamu?

Ever since Google first announced its intentions to purchase Motorola, there have been rumors (aka hopes) that Motorola would eventually make a Nexus device.

You read a rumor, and you know it will have a good antenna? You must be genius.

Motorola phones have always had the best reception. Put it up against any other manufacturer. For example. My Samsung Galaxy Nexus will revert to 1x for a majority of a drive to my in laws. My wife's Maxx will be LTE nearly the entire 2 hr trip. I've found this to be true with other friend's Motorolas up against HTC's and even Nokias.

Hopefully, the nexus will finally have a quality battery (think MAXX).

I hope it's 4000mAH + just like in Huawei Ascend Mate 2
