Nexus 6 seemingly pictured alongside LG G3

The so-called Google Nexus 6, also known as Shamu, has seemingly been snapped sat next to an LG G3 for scale. If accurate, it’s going to be big alright.

Yesterday we learned that Google may indeed be looking to Motorola to produce a giant 6-inch smartphone.

The Nexus 6 would essentially look like a stretched out version of the recent Moto X 2 (2014), with a 5.92-inch QHD 2560 x 1440 display.

Of course, the first phone of note to feature a QHD display was the LG G3 earlier in the year, so it’s perhaps fitting that the first unofficial picture of the Nexus 6 places it alongside LG’s pixel-dense flagship.

The LG G3 is no small device, thanks to its 5.5-inch display, but as you can see from the picture published on a Droid-life comment section, it’s made to look positively dainty alongside what appears to be the Nexus 6.

We also get a good look at that Moto X 2-like design. Sure enough, the distinctive bulging and dropping top edge is in places, as is the neat camera lens-surrounding flash array and ‘M’ recess.

Of course, there’s a chance that this isn’t the Nexus 6 at all, but rather a prototype for a stand-alone Motorola phablet. But it certainly seems to match yesterday’s artist’s impression and the leaked specs that accompanied it.

Those specs also mentioned a Snapdragon 805 CPU, 3GB of RAM, a 3,200mAh battery, and a 13-megapixel camera.

With Google expected to announce its Android and Nexus plans in October, we shouldn’t have too long to wait to confirm or deny these latest reports.
