Nexus 6 Release Date Upgrade along with Nexus X Features
As we get closer to the release date of the highly-anticipated Nexus successor to last year’s Nexus 5, more and more details seem to surface. For starters, the device will be called the Nexus X, due to its affiliation with Motorola.
The start of the week brought us a little present via TKTech News in the form of new pictures related to the device. The photos were supposedly of the upcoming Motorola Moto X+1, as they show a huge Motorola device which could very well be the Moto X+1. At the moment, out of Motorola’s catalogue, the X+1 is the strongest candidate to become the base model for the awaited Nexus 6 or Nexus X device. The images show a large device, with Android-style elements on the screen, like icons and home screen configuration. The top and bottom parts of the phone bear the speakers and sensors that come with the model, while the sides of the device house very slim bezels.
The back of the device also has a few elements worth noticing. The back panel has a wooden texture, and it features the Motorola logo somewhere near the center. The camera lens for the rear shooter is also present here, in a rather close position to the brand logo.
More Moto X-like customization will be available, as the choices for back panels don’t stop at the wooden texture. Motorola will also be making available version of the back panel featuring aluminum, carbon fiber, leather and even denim.
Motorola shows us that it is keeping up with the latest fashions in tech, and offers users the possibilities of pairing the device with the upcoming smartwatch that will presumably battle for top spot with Apple, Samsung and LG variants of the technology. The Motorola smartwatch will go by the name Moto 360.
These build and features hints that were extracted from the leaked photos won’t necessarily mean that we will see them on the upcoming Nexus 6 or Nexus X device. Although It might be a possibility, it still maintains its rumor status for the moment.
Like specified above, the Moto X+1 is currently the best candidate from Motorola’s available option to play the part of the Nexus X’s base model. This being considered, users can look out for some impressive specs, like 2K screen capability, a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, and 3 full GB of RAM.
Numerous names have been thrown around regarding the Moto X+1 and the new Nexus X. Aside from the news of a demo device transferred to India for testing, we caught wind of several names such as Motorola Shamu, which also goes by the name Moto S. This is supposedly a larger version of the Nexus X, featuring a 5.9 inch display. The other Nexus X variant is, presumably, a 5.2 inch display smartphone which emulates the Motorola upcoming flagship, Moto X+1.
The larger Nexus X seems to come under the build number XT1112 and might end up having a price tag that reaches $580. The phablet-size display makes the price somewhat understandable.
Both the upcoming Nexus smartphone, dubbed Nexus X or Nexus 6 and the upcoming Nexus 8/9 tablet are slated to enter the market somewhere between late October and early November. Both are set to feature Google’s latest rendition of the Android operating system, which will be marketed as Android LMP (Lemon Meringue Pie), featuring the build version 5.0.
