Motorola’s Nexus device will be called Nexus 6 and have a QHD display

Motorola has long been rumoured to be the manufacturer of the newest Nexus phone. Tentatively called the Nexus X, previous rumours have pointed to a 5.9-inch display for this phone as well as an aesthetic similar to that of the Moto X.

Now, a few days on from the pictures that appeared to show an enlarged Moto X, Android Police claims to have additional information on the newest Nexus phone. The site says that this year’s Google flagship will be a 5.9-inch device called the Nexus 6. Not only that, but the Nexus 6 will have a 13MP camera with optical image stabilization as well as the new dual-LED flash ring, a 3200 mAh battery, and a QHD 2560×1440 pixel display.

The Nexus 6 is expected to be unveiled alongside the newest version of Android, dubbed Android L, in mid-October. Aside from the fact that the Nexus 6 name is a departure from the much-rumoured Nexus X name, specs rumours pretty much line up with what we’ve previously heard about the 2014 Nexus. Android Police has put together a render based on what it has heard about the Nexus 6. This points to solid signal indicators for cell signal, WiFi, and battery, as well as new app icons for messenger, Google apps, and the Play Store. Strangely absent is Google Hangouts.
