Famous leak-agent @evleaks is officially retired, but in a sudden surge of nostalgia brought us a new leak. And not just any leak, as now we have the first official photo of the upcoming Nexus 6.
The photo shows the Nexus 6 front panel and its frame which seems to be made of metal. There are two visible inlays that are required on metal panels for the antennas to work - those wouldn't be needed if the frame was all plastic. Moreover, we get to see the Android L homescreen in action as well as the new iconography style that Google is going for.
The Google Nexus 6 is made by Motorola and reportedly packs a 5.9" QHD display, which makes it the first Nexus phablet. It's good to see then, that the unlock button and volume rocker are placed conveniently towards the center of the right side.
Earlier today, an upcoming Google video ad of the Nexus 6 and Android L leaked, which in addition to this press photo suggest that the launch of the two is imminent.
The rest of the rumored Nexus 6 specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset with a 2.65GHz quad-core Krait 450 CPU and 3GB of RAM. At the back, there's a 13MP camera with OIS standing between the two LEDs of the flash.Source
True on the 'too big' part, hard to say without something to compare it too. Looks wise however, it is already open to interpretation. To me, it simply looks very generic, and nothing exciting about it.
Without seeing it next to a 5.2 or 5.5 phone or a hand for that matter its very hard to make a judgement call on if it is too big or "ugly"
Nexus 6 is no more a phone it is hard to fit in pockets, PHABLET !!
