Motorola Shamu a.k.a Nexus 6 Gets It’s Price Leaked – And It’s Not Cheap Folks
Motorola’s been a lot in the news lately. The company has allegedly 8 devices under the works for us before Christmas. These include the Droid, the Droid Maxx, the Droid Turbo, the Moto S, the Moto G, the Moto X+1, the Moto X Play and finally the Moto Shamu. And that’s not where the interesting part begins. Apparently, the devices are interlinked as well, meaning that the fate of one depends on how well the other does. If the X+1 does well, then we might not be getting to see the Droid Turbo.

Much hype has also been created about the Motorola Shamu which is being said to be the next Google Nexus smartphone, or the Nexus 6. Until now we have quite a good idea what the Motorola Shamu will be like, courtesy of leaks all around the internet. Just a week back, a huge Motorola Shamu leak laid out the device specifications in detail. According to a GFX Bench benchmark, the Motorola Shamu will be a high end device, a path not generally taken by Nexus smartphones.
The benchmarks show a 2.6 GHz Snapdragon 805 which comes with an Adreno 420 GPU. Bear in mind that almost all of today’s top flaghsips come with the Snapdragon 801, capable of a frequency of 2.5 GHz and paired with the Adreno 330. This puts the Motorola Shamu way ahead of current flagships. For a detailed hardware and benchmark comparison of Samsung, Sony, HTC, LG and Xiaomi’s flaghsips, click here. This comes coupled with 3 GB of RAM and a 12 MP rear camera. Well, it looks like these specifications aren’t coming cheap. An Indian import manifest has been spotted which shows Motorola Shamu’s price and it’s model number.
Motorola Shamu To Come With A Price Tag Of $ 580 – Gets Spotted On Indian Import Manifest.
The import manifest spotted and sent to TkTech shows a device originating here from the U.S and being sent to India for demo purposes. It seems like two devices have been sent, with a cumulative price of 69, 965 Indian rupees. Per unit, this translates into a cost of 34, 982 INR which equals to $ 578. So that’s it folks. Looks like that since the Motorola Shamu is apparently going to be a spec stunner, the price is an equal stunner. Oh and we also get to find out the device’s model number which is Motorola XT1112 which is often found in front of Motorola devices.
