I just realized, There is no NEXUS 6
Shamu device is Moto S. Plain and Simple:
1-It is too big for a nexus
2-Back panel doesn't have a nexus logo and only a M logo
3-It passed through FCC as Verizon device, google devices were always global.
The next nexus phone will be Nexus X, if there's gonna be a phablet it's gonna be the Nexus X Plus. Two versions. 5.2(or 5.0) inch, and 5.9 inch. Woooo. No need to worry. It might(20%) have a fingerprint scanner on the back. It will be released either on October 15th or 16th or around Halloween. Shamu is not google, It's Moto S. Nexus X is probably called X not 6 and codenamed(25%) Jellyfish. But still, There's a 9% chance that the nexus line ends with nexus 9. This leak just came in!
Why does ANY company put out a phone without (micro)SD card reader or replaceable battery? It's so idiotic.
So many great phones that aren't worth consideration without card reader or battery.
Folk round my area want smaller phones so anyone arguing they ALL want big phones has not asked the whole world.
AnonD-195873, 09 Oct 2014I m strongly getting intuition...next nexus I mean nexus 6 is similar to Motorola droid turboYep it always been that way. Droids are the Nexus in the Verizon world.
Fingerprint was a Moto thing from the very beginning (Atrix) like face unlock was a Sam thing then later.
Kris, 11 Oct 2014I need a phone ... looking like galaxy nexus ... 5.2"SAMOLED .. all top specs... plus a f... moreFingerprint? No! I've got a galaxy nexus and I'm definitely buying this phone ASAIR.(as soon as it's released!!!!). But I don't think nexus devices would EVER support fingerprint. You see, they have android stock and fingerprint would require special software also, and all android stock phones don't have fingerprint so, no. And plus. Fingerprint isn't that special. Like the face unlock with the Gnex. I've got like 20 friends that have either GS5 or iPhone 5s and 6 and they barely use the fingerprint option.
If it's 5.9" and under £300, I'll buy it simply because no 5.9" and no 64 bit on the Samsung Edge were deal breakers. This should do nicely until the Note 5 or Edge 2.
@jmaster299, my personal meaning is: It gives 2 Group of Users/Smartphones: Big and Shorter - and not a minority!
Examples: The iphone 6 and her Big-Brother
Sony Z3 and the Compacts
Samsung S4 .. S4 Mini
HTC One .. Mini
.. and so on!
And we wont / loves Small-Phones!!!

I need a phone ... looking like galaxy nexus ... 5.2"SAMOLED .. all top specs... plus a fingerprint scanner!!! Possible???
Once again the vocal minority will scream the loudest, and will once again be wrong about their claims. All the different manufactures are putting out huge "phablets" for a reason, people want them. You, personally, may not want one, but the masses in the market do, and they will always appeal to the masses.
Steve Jobs, bright day in the universe when that jerk kicked it, arrogantly tried to tell customers what they wanted, instead of actually giving them want they want. There are still the blind sheep that will buy anything with an Apple logo on it, but their market share has taken a dump because they refused to change with the desires of the market.
Now, with the iPhone 6 and 6+, their sales are skyrocketing again because they are giving people what other companies gave their customers 2+ years ago. Bigger phones and more features.
This is purely my own speculation, but Google and Motorola didn't want to end up with two phones directly competing with each other. Which is what happened with the Nexus 5 and the LG G2. The G2 still had the unique buttons on the back, but in terms of platform, size and features, the two phones were too much a like. The only thing the Nexus 5 had going for it was its marketing as the "cheaper" alternative.
If people want a phone with a very clean Android experience, but a smaller screen size, they can go with the Moto X 2014. For people who want the same experience, but with a larger screen, they can go with the Nexus 6.
It creates a win-win for both Motorola and Google. If the Nexus 6 had a 5.5", or smaller, screen size the two phones would be eating into each other's sales. But now people can have two phones, with identical features, with the selling point being the screen size.
The renders show that the Nexus 6 will be smaller in size than the iPhone 6+ and very slightly bigger than the Note 4. The reason it would be 5.9 inches is because they need the extra 0.4 inches for the on-screen buttons. This will make the bezels smaller, so I don't think it would be a massive phone, if you find a Note comfortable, I'm pretty sure you'll find the Nexus 6 comfortable as well.
AnonD-317498, 09 Oct 2014Are you guys sure it will have wireless charging? yes
dude, 09 Oct 2014Wrong, it will be the best selling Nexus.Don't think so dear friend , because it's screen size is too big for a phone ... the CPU is not much efficient because the chipset isn't good enough because a new GPU is going to be shown in a few month and finally Motorola isn't that good because it don't give it's phones to all the countries ...
dude, 09 Oct 2014Wrong, it will be the best selling Nexus.You are so right. And BtW a guy at Wall Street journal wrote it might have 2 different versions that have different sizes. Just like the new iPhone
AnonD-171857, 09 Oct 2014Dude, do you ever read the news, details of cpu.z say that it's 5 to 5.5 inchesI really hope your right 5.9 inches stupid and love my Nexus smartfones.
