Nexus 6 with 6-inch display allegedly on the cards

Google is reportedly still looking to launch a Nexus 6 device, and true to form it will sport a huge 6-inch display.

Earlier in the month, a fresh rumour claimed that the follow-up to the Nexus 5 would keep the name, which would be justified by a marginally increased 5.2-inch display size.

A new report from 9to5Mac, however, claims that a full-on Nexus 6 phablet is in the works. The above render is said to based off a real device.

As Google’s naming convention has thus far dictated, the Nexus 6 appears to have a whopping 6-inch display – or rather, a 5.92-inch example.

The site also claims to have had confirmed to it that the Nexus 6 will be made by Motorola. Indeed, the handset’s appearance will closely resemble the recently unveiled Moto X 2 (2014), with the same aluminium bezel and curved rear, but it will be scaled up and the volume and power keys will be moved down a little to make them easier to reach.

That 5.92-inch display will apparently be a QHD 2560 x 1440 example, so it’ll be both bigger and sharper than the new iPhone 6 Plus. Given such a large, pixel-packed display, it’s a relief to learn that it’ll run on a large 3,200mAh battery.

As for power, the report confirms that the Nexus 6 will run on a Snapdragon 805 CPU, which will be backed by 3GB of RAM. A 13-megapixel camera rounds out the hardware package.

This seems like quite a confident claim, which leaves just one big question: will there be two Nexus smartphones launched this time around? We’re expecting an official announcement of some sort in October.
