Motorola ‘Shamu’ Nexus Device Breaks Cover, Leaked Again And It’s Big

We suppose a smartphone as big as the rumored Shamu from Motorola (likely to be called Nexus 6 or Nexus X) is tough to hide, hence all the leaks to the web. The latest leak comes from an anonymous person who has been posting a supposed photo of the giant handset shown sitting next to an LG G3 device on at least two different forums.

The picture shows the back of the beast with a hand-written label taped to it that reads, "Shamu." Above that is a button with a Motorola logo on it (some have surmised it's a fingerprint sensor, though it could be a shutter button to take selfies), and above that is the rear facing camera.

According to previous rumors, Shamu will splash the smartphone market with a 5.92-inch QHD 2560x1440 display (498 pixels per inch), Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 2-megapixel front-facing camera that's the same as the one found on the second generation Moto X, 32GB of internal storage, 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 3,200mAh battery. It's also been speculated that Shamu will arrive wielding a 32-bit version of Android L (Lemon Meringue Pie).

Like Apple did with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Motorola may decide to launch more than one version of the Nexus 6/X. One reason that's been speculated is because unknown devices with 5.2-inch displays have appeared in benchmark runs.
