The fast-approaching Nexus 6 has just had another early debut, with the latest leak showing off an actual handset.
Until now we’ve mostly seen renders of the device, but the new image has a Nexus 6 sitting alongside Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus.
The key thing to take from this is screen size – Apple’s blower is huge at 5.5-inch, but the giant Nexus 6 trumps Apple’s cellular at 5.9-inch.
Despite the 0.4-inch difference in display size, the Nexus 6 doesn’t actually look that much bigger than the iPhone 6 Plus, largely due to its comparatively svelte bezels.
It also looks like a sized-up 2nd-gen Moto X – no surprise, as Motorola is reckoned to be the firm behind the latest Nexus-stamped Google handset.
There’s not much else we can glean from this picture as the purported Nexus smartphone isn’t even turned on.
When we do finally see some working Nexus 6 handsets, we’re expecting it to be the flagship carrier of Google’s next mobile OS – Android L.
Most technophiles reckon the new software will be called Android Lollipop, and will tout Google’s flatter, simpler ‘material design’ aesthetic introduced at Google I/O.
Yesterday we saw a leaked render of the Nexus 6 that showed off the new OS and the handset’s mega-screen, courtesy of Evleaks.
We also heard that Google would launch the handset at some point today, alongside HTC’s Nexus 9 tablet, although the search engine giant’s not let anything slip just yet.
In terms of specs, there’s whispers of a 2.65GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, a 2560 x 1440 display, and a meaty 3200mAh li-ion battery.
