Motorola Shamu specs leak, could be the Google Nexus 6



Nexus 6 codename Shamu by Motorola, said to feature 2K display, Snapdragon 805 CPU and Android L build.

Though the rumours in the last couple of months were pointing out towards Google looking to drop the Nexus series in favour of a new project called Android Silver, “the Nexus line is here to stay,” said Dave Burke, Head of Android Engineering.

Furthermore, Google is reportedly working in secret with HTC for a Nexus 8/9 inch tablet and with Motorola for the Nexus 6 phone codename Shamu.

Today, new bits of information come from Antutu and GFX Bench, two well-known websites for their benchmark-based applications. The details leaked hint at a Motorola Shamu / Nexus 6 phone, which will allegedly feature a 5.2-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display, Snapdragon 805 CPU, 3GB of RAM, Adreno 420 GPU, 13MP rear-camera and Android L build.


The Nexus 6 could land in the following three months (September – November timeframe), as this is the time of the year Google is accustomed to introduce a new version of Android alongside new Nexus phone.

Meanwhile, Google is also rumoured to set up an online Moto Maker-like portal codename “Workshop,” where customers will be able to customize their Nexus phones look as they please.
