Motorola Shamu / Nexus X photographed next to LG's G3?


If the photo that’s embedded above is legit, what we’re seeing next to the LG G3 is the unannounced Nexus X, aka Motorola Shamu. The exact origins of the photo are a bit hard to track, but it seems that it was first posted by a commentator in response to a couple of articles found at Android Police and Droid-life. According to the person who posted the image, the Nexus X / Motorola Shamu is headed to Verizon Wireless (though it will almost surely be sold unlocked as well).

As you can see, the alleged Nexus X resembles the second-gen Moto X, and is considerably larger than the 5.5-inch LG G3. That’s because, as we told you back in August, the new Nexus sports a 5.9-inch display. Obviously, a 5.9-inch handset will be too big for some customers. But Google is planning to launch it anyway, because it likely doesn’t care about what users want from the Nexus line - as long as there are lots and lots of other Android smartphones on the market.

As we previously told you, the ultra-large screen of the Nexus X should feature a 1440 x 2560 (Quad HD) pixel resolution. Other expected features include a 12 MP (or 13 MP) rear camera with 4K video recording, quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, and 3 GB of RAM. The new handset could be officially announced in October, and should be released shortly after that. Well, we're waiting!
