5.9-inch Motorola Nexus 6 “Shamu” Gets Snapdragon 805, 3200 mAh Battery, and 12MP Shooter
Motorola is coming in the news every day this week, hinting at the possibility of some stellar devices coming our way. A lot of focus has been geared towards a single smartphone, the Motorola Nexus 6 codenamed Shamu. Motorola Shamu is also known as Nexus X as it is believed to succeed Moto X, with a Nexus twist on it. The recent reports indicate that the smartphone is indeed a scaled up version of the Moto X. Coming with a mega 5.9-inch display, Motorola Shamu would be the first Nexus device from the company.
Motorola Shamu aka Nexus X:
While we cannot decide which name to refer to while talking about this device, all three of them have been used for the smartphone so far. Until Motorola officially launches the next Moto, we are probably going to attach with Shamu. While a little details have kept sprucing up about the next gen Nexus, there have been no images so far. 9to5Google has posted a new Nexus X mock-up image based on the original Nexus X. The mockup looks a lot like Moto X 2014 and 9to5Google confirms that it sources believe the same. Design factor aside, here are the Motorola Shamu specs that you could expect from the scaled up version of Moto X:
- 5.92 inches, 1440 x 2560 Quad HD display (instead of 5.2 inches of Moto X)
- Snapdragon 805 processor
- 12 megapixel primary camera with 4K video recording
- 2 megapixel front shooter
- 3 GB of RAM
- 3,200 mAh battery (instead of 2,300 mAh of Moto X)
- Android L
As we shared with you details yesterday, Motorola Shamu (or Nexus 6) is expected to arrive mid October along with an equally highly-rumored 9-inch HTC Nexus 9 tablet. Both devices will come with Android 5.0 and will go on sale starting November. Android L is also expected to see a public release starting November with Samsung already ready to push updates to Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4, yet to hit the markets.
