Google’s next Nexus smartphone, likely to be named as Nexus 6 or Nexus X, has become one of the most eagerly anticipated gadget of the year. A new Wall Street Journal report corroborates what has been widely expected based on earlier leaks, that the upcoming Nexus smartphone is codenamed ‘Shamu’ and is being manufactured by Motorola.

WSJ reports adds that the alleged Nexus 6 aka Nexus X has been codenamed ‘Shamu’ after a killer whale and will be sporting a 5.9-inch screen with higher resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. The other features might include a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 12 MP rear camera, and a 3200 mAh battery.

The reports also stated that Google is planning to launch the latest version of Android –“Android L”, at the same time with the new Nexus. If the recent leaks and rumours turned out to be true, then Google’s next flagship will be the ‘largest’ Nexus branded smartphone in terms of screen size. The Nexus 5 is sporting a 5-inch display, and the new Nexus will be bigger than the iPhone 6 Plus (5.5-inch) and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (5.7-inch).

Google has been silent about the launch of the upcoming Nexus 6 . However, recent reports have suggested it might be unveiled on October 15, or October 16 (that’s next week). Prices for the handset may start at $419. Doi-Toshin will be here to let you know more about this as soon as new details are available.
