It’s no secret now that Motorola will be responsible for the upcoming Nexus 6 phone, which is starting to look like a beast (specs-wise) of a device — something rarely seen in Nexus devices.
This new Motorola device, which is currently going by the codename “Shamu,” will apparently be called the “Moto S” once is comes to market.
Because this device (according to the photo at the top) seems like it’ll be branded as the Moto S, we believe that this could be the first Android Silver device, and not necessarily a Nexus phone, but there’s more to come on that for sure, so stay tuned.
The phone, which is looking to be a Verizon exclusive (for now), has some conflicting reports on specs, but some remain constant. Hit the break for all the details.
Before we start, a reminder: As with anything, all of this is unconfirmed — while we have reason to believe that most of this is fact, without anything being officially announced by Google, Motorola, Verizon (or whoever), please take this information with a grain of salt.
Here we go.
The device’s screen seems to be the biggest point of contention among leakers.
A recent report shows the device as having a 5.2-inch QHD display, which is of course conflicts with the previous rumors of a 5.9-inch 2K display on the Moto S. The 5.9-inch rumor came out in the early days of the “Shamu” news, so we’re betting on the former rather than the latter.
As for the rest of the leaked specs, the information seems to be rather constant and less contentious:
We’re looking at a quad-core, 2,649MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 2.9GB RAM, as well as 24GB internal storage. For cameras, there will be a 13MP rear camera with 4K UDH video recording abilities and a 2.1MP front snapper.
As is tradition, the Nexus 6 (Moto S/Shamu) will be released alongside Android L, as rumors point to the phone coming with the new OS already loaded up on it.
