Ever since Google’s Android Silver announcement, it has been wildly debated that whether Google will go for another Nexus device or not. After the emergence of a barrage of rumors, it seems as if the tech moguls just might have one last Nexus device in them to accompany the launch of Android 5.0. And even though we don’t have a confirmation from Google, these rumors do suggest that the release of Nexus 6 or as the rumors refer to the device as: Nexus X is very probable.
The rumors have been released from a site called TKTechNews which showcases the AnTuTu benchmark test results of the Nexus X as well as screenshots from various retail websites. Of course, the so called screenshots may very well be fake, so that’s why we’re going to recommend that you take everything you read here with big grains of salt.
Anyhow, the Nexus X will supposedly have a 2K resolution on a 6.3/5.2/6.1 (each screenshot refers to a different screensize) inch screen running on a Qualcomm 805 board with 2 GHz processor and 3 GB of RAM. It will also feature a 13.1 megapixel rear camera. Other screenshots from retail websites indicate that the phone will come in two variants of 32 GB and 64 GB with a price tag of about $499.
Now, this may very well be the specs and screenshots of two different devices as Android Police has suggested that very possibility by sharing some rumors about the Motorola Shamu which is being developed by the company in partnership Google. Of course, considering that Motorola is now owned by Lenovo we are a bit skeptic of the whole thing but you never know what Google’s cooking until they decide it’s time to release it.
We are still unsure when will we see the next generation of Nexus devices exactly but many people are suggesting that it just might be with the release of Android L which is rumored to be released in a secret press conference on October 31st while others believe that that Google just might skip out on the whole launch announcements all together for the Nexus X.
In any case, we do hope that we see something good from Google before the release of Project Ara. Anyhow what do you think about all these rumors and are you really interested in getting your hands on a Nexus device that’s more expensive than $400?
