The Nexus 6 might have just popped up at the FCC

Motorola's upcoming Nexus device may have just just made an appearance at the FCC. The new Motorola smartphone has a 6-inch screen and the model number XT1254. The device operates on LTE Bands 2, 4, 5, and 17, and supports GSM and WCDMA at frequencies of 850MHz, 1700MHz, and 1900MHz, bands that are supported by AT&T and T-Mobile in the United States.

We don't know much about the upcoming Nexus smartphone. It's currently known either as the Nexus 6, Nexus X, or simply the code name Shamu. Supposed photos of the device show that it could sport a design similar to the recently-released Moto X, including an LED flash ring for the rear camera.

Are you interested in a 6-inch phone? Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments, and don't forget to vote in our poll as well.

  • Not to be 'that guy' but this picture has been around for a week or so Posted via Android Central App
  • Good thing the column is about the phone showing up at the FCC, and not about a leaked picture. Posted from the Avengers: Age of Droid Ultra
  • In his defense, why didn't they just post the FCC rendering? The image they posted that has nothing to do with the FCC filing is misleading.
  • Uhh...what? How is it even slightly misleading? Its a picture of the Nexus in an article about the Nexus. Do you even believe what you wrote? Posted from the Avengers: Age of Droid Ultra
  • Because that leaked image was not from the FCC filing, which has no pictures of the device.
    Because this device that passed through the FCC is not the Nexus 6 that's rumored to have a 6" screen because the entire device is 6" diagonally. To clarify, a 6" device can't have a 6" screen, unless it has absolutely zero bezel and the sides of the phone are glass and you can't make calls on it because it doesn't have an earpiece. This is a Droid Turbo clone with AT&T bands and a 5.5" screen. It doesn't even have as many LTE bands as the Nexus 5, actually.
  • So the article is incorrect. But his comment had nothing to do with the article being incorrect. And the picture still fits the article that was written so saying its misleading is wrong. Posted from the Avengers: Age of Droid Ultra
  • They posted a picture of the Nexus 6 on an article that was about a Motorola phone going through the FCC that clearly was not a Nexus 6, lending credibility to something that was obviously not Nexus related. You see it your way, I see it mine. Both are fine. Would you post a picture of a Nexus 6 on that article? (Same FCC filing, by the way, except they got it right)
  • I'm not sure if you're being stubborn or obtuse. No, i wouldn't post that picture to the article on androidandme, but in case you didn't notice, the article on AC is a different article.
    Read the title of the AC article. It's about a Nexus 6. Read the article itself. It's about the Nexus 6. The article incorrectly says that the phone that passed through the FCC was the Nexus 6, however the article itself is still about the Nexus 6. The picture fits an article about the Nexus 6. I'm not sure what's so hard to understand about that. Posted from the Avengers: Age of Droid Ultra
  • Then don't be, "that guy". Problem solved.

  • I can't help but laugh at this sad showing of a boring stock android featureless phablet. This is definitely a waste of time seriously. First Apple perpetrated a sad fraud now Google needs to do the same.
    At the end of the day everyone follows behind the Worldwide global leader Samsung and it's unmatched Galaxy Note product. It's always been pretty much plain and simple nothing beats Samsung or the Galaxy Note products they are Android nothing else matters. From my Galaxy Note 3 on T-Mobile via Android Central App
  • can you just go away please? nobody wants to hear your stupidity Posted via the Android Central App
  • You responded so you will hear it like or not. It's pretty typical of you faceless people who hide there face day in and day out. Reality is reality and I said exactly what needs to be said and don't rather you like it or not. Nobody needs another perpetrating boring featureless stock android phablet.

  • There's a lot Harrell doesn't know. Dick don't know Dick.
  • Samsung? Lol Posted via Android Central App
  • You are aware that your statement of "Reality is reality" is bogus, correct? Your statements are all subjective. There isn't such a thing as "objectivity" when you're trying to state that something is "featureless" without even knowing how the device will be OOB (out of box). Note 4 is pretty much featureless as well, sans the S-Pen (unless you count the heartbeat monitor; which my Moto 360 does just fine without need of the feature being on the phone itself).
  • This is true. Reality in its grander sense is subjective... There's the old adage that "if ten people witness the same incident, no two will recall it exactly the same.". Posted via Android Central App
  • Correct! Objectivity is something quite impossible to obtain, especially when considering "true to life" environments. Mobiles aren't an exception. You can look at all of the technical specifications and no matter how much faster the processor is clocked, or how much RAM it has, or how great the display is ... there's going to be another person out there that has a negative experience of it. We like what we like, but to insult a company or user-base directly for no apparent reason is just type of of action that Richard is notorious for throughout the Internet (Android sites, iOS sites, Social Networking, etc).

  • Samsung sucks their phone designs are not half as close to being comfortable like Moto x Posted via the Android Central App
  • "It's pretty typical of you faceless people who hide there face day in and day out."
    1. *their faces
    2. As if a profile picture will make any difference as to the truth of *our* words. You spout absolute nonsense, such as:
    "reality is reality". No, no it's not. Because reality is our individual thoughts and perceptions of the world. I like cheeseburgers and you may not. That's the reality of it.
    "I said exactly what needs to be said" No. You said what you *wanted* to say. It didn't need to be said.
    "Nobody needs..." says 1 tiny, insignificant, hypocritical, ignorant, petulant child in a 50+ year old body.
    For god's sake, you still can't use "whether" in the right place, and instead sub in "rather", which makes it look like you have the education of a 7 year old. Do yourself a favor, go enroll yourself in a 2nd grade english class.
  • Go fuck yourself, Samsung troll.
  • Let's refrain from calling each other stupid. Being nice never killed anyone. :)
  • And here I thought I was going to read a nice discussion about the Nexus 6!
  • Me too - there's only so far down the page I'm willing to scroll before I give in!
  • Except the French in WWII. Oh, and Native Americans.
  • The only thing worse than an Apple fanatic... is a Samsung one. Holy hell I would be embarrassed to pen such absurdly fanboyish posts, especially about an enormous foreign, multinational conglomerate company. You should never care about a company more than the company cares about you. You sound like a prostitute sticking up for your pimp.

  • Are you saying that the feature packed, market leader, gold standard phone that Richard is using does not have autocorrect?!!!
  • This made my entire year lololololololol. Thank you sooooo much. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Or maybe some people might want a larger screen device without:
    The Samsung bloat
    The delay in updates
    Crap outdoor screen visibility
    Software that lags for zero reason considering the hardware it is running on
    Stupid physical home button My AC App signature lacks a witty comment.
  • "It's" is not a possessive.
    It's a contraction.
    "What's a contraction?" you ask?
    Contraction (n.) The shortening of a word or a group of words by the removal of a sound or letter.
    Case in point: "Samsung and its 'unmatched' leader, the Galaxy Note."
    Perhaps you could be taken more seriously if you used proper grammar.
    Ah, who am I kidding? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Thank you. What's your take on the Oxford comma?
  • Great more giant phones. Good job dumbass people of the world Posted via the Android Central App
  • 5.2“ is as big as I am willing to go with a phone. Posted via Android Central App
  • What a coincidence
  • thats what she said?
  • I said that too.. then i got a g3 and i am good with it BUT, its very ergonomically designed. 6" phone is just WAY too big imo.
  • Same exact dimensions as the Droid Turbo.
  • Because this probably is a Droid Turbo, really. It's likely not the Nexus 6. The Droid Turbo has actual buttons and a smaller screen. It's diagonal measurement is right at 6" for the entire phone. How could they put a 6" screen in a phone that is itself 6"? This probably isn't the N6. It's missing a lot of bands that the Nexus 5 has, as well.
  • Why would the DROID Turbo (VZW exclusive as it is a DROID) have TMO and ATT LTE bands?
  • Agreed but shouldn't we talk about phone dimensions instead of screen size? 5.7-6inches for the entire phone is doable. Considering the bezels continue to get smaller and smaller, I think it should be talked about a bit more. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I have a Nexus 5 and I think that's a little too big. If my Moto X 2013 had a better screen and camera I would use it as my daily driver.
  • Cool man! That's great to know.
  • So effin funny.. last year people said 4.7 inches was the maximum.. lol Posted via Android Central App
  • It is kinda funny... first anything over 4 was considered big, then 4.5, then 4.7, now we're up to 5.2. But you do get to a point where you simply refuse to go any further. Personally, the Nexus 5 is a larger phone than I had wanted, but I was willing to live with it for the specs/price. But I will absolutely not go any larger, under any circumstances. I'd sooner downgrade to a mid-level phone before carry something larger.
  • Flop Posted via Android Central App
  • This is the first Nexus device that I hope doesn't succeed. A 6" phone is way too big.
  • Then continue to hope that the nexus 5 resales which I doubt. I don't see hope people can wish death in a device simply because if it's specs but you continue to support the creator and manufacturers ~My $0.02~
  • You may be right... We'll have to see. It's certainly a harder choice for me than if it was 4.7 or 5.2 inches. Posted via Android Central App
  • I really hope it isn't 6 inches! Why the big jump from 5 to 6?? What happened to 5.2 or 5.5 inch??? Posted via Android Central App
  • Apple took 5.5. Besides if the renders are correct, the physical size is almost identical to the iPhone 6 plus. I'd rather have a big screen squeezed onto a small body than the other way around. Still, it is an odd jump. If the MotoX (2014) had wireless charging, I'd probably be all over it. I'm guessing that Moto didn't want the N6 taking away from its MotoX sales, so stayed away from the 5.2 size as well.
  • Dude it's going to be 6 inches. I think its time for you to stop being in a state of denial.
  • Because if it wasn't close to 6" they would have to call it the Nexus 5 (2014). Next years Nexus 7 will be a phone with a 7" screen, a true phablet.
  • If not known already then I believe there is already a Nexus 7. Posted via Android Central App
  • It is not the Nexus 6. It is the new Droid but nice try.
  • How do you know it's the new Droid? I'm seriously wondering, not just being a jerk.
  • Demensions are for the Turbo.
  • It doesn't have the feel for the nexus..and why is there a moto logo on the back? Wouldn't it be hidden to the bottom? Posted via Android Central App
  • You're all wrong, it's clearly an iPhone 5 sitting on top of an iPad air. ;)
  • It has more than the verizon bands, though... droid is verizon exclusive.
  • The Droid branding is Vz exclusive. They can rebrand for AT&T.
  • They wouldn't cram all the radios in one unit, though.
  • Speculation is that it's a rebranded Turbo for AT&T. It is not a 6" screen.
  • pretty big dimensions on the filing to not be a six inch screen.....
  • Same dimensions as the Turbo, which is only marginally larger than the 2nd gen Moto X. It isn't a 6" screen.
  • How do you like your crow? Basted in water from de Nile?
    Just thinking ahead.
  • The diagonal size of this device is 6"
    The Nexus 6 supposedly has a 6" screen
    The phone can't hold a 6" screen. This is the Droid you're looking for. It exactly matches the 5.5" screened, capacitive buttoned Droid Turbo. It's likely a hardware clone made for AT&T. This thing doesn't even have the same LTE bands as the Nexus 5. How could it be a Nexus, unless I'm missing something?
  • I'll take that bet
  • Except for every single piece of leaked information so far is pointing to it being the next Nexus...... The Moto S will end up being a Verizon specific device with the same form factor and 5.9 inch screen as the "RUMORED" Nexus 6....
  • It's impossible that this is the new Nexus because it doesn't support 2100Mhz. It's an ATT only device. Sounds like Motorola is finally coming to AT&T in true form (not just one device)!!
  • 2100MHz is the downlink frequency only so it doesn't have to be tested. AWS only outputs from the phone on 1700. Posted via Android Central App
  • Looking through the Neuxs 5 FCC docs, you seem to be correct. That's good info to know. Thanks.
  • Which is why it was approved with AT&T and T-Mobile LTE?
  • Except that it doesn't include all T-Mobile LTE bands and it doesn't support 2100Mhz which is required for a T-Mobile device. This phone would not work on T-Mobile in many areas. It's not a Nexus.
  • It does support 2100mhz. That frequency is used by towers only. The device would only need to be tested on what it outputs: 1700mhz. Band 4 implies both the uplink and downlink, but the FCC only tests the uplink.
  • I agree this is not the Nexus 6. The height on this device is about the same as a Galaxy S5. There is no way this is the Nexus 6 being only 143.5mm tall. The Nexus 6 should be around 155-160mm tall
  • What are you looking at? The G3 is decently larger than the S5, and this is decently larger than the G3 next to it. It's MUCH closer to iP6+ height...
  • Im looking at the FCC height measurement of 143.5mm. The S5 measures 142mm tall, the G3 measures 146.3mm tall. This device falls in between them. Im saying that the Nexus 6 with a 5.9" display will be much taller than all of these so this cannot be it.
  • I may be wrong but I think the FCC measure the size of the display sans the bezels. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I don't care much for the Nexus line. No SD Card slot.. I don't buy. But I do have to say, if there was a SD Card slot, then I wouldn't buy anything else than Nexus.
  • I don't like the hassle of SD cards but if they don't include them they should really give us at least 32gb. The way every other part of mobile tech has advanced in the last few years we should be getting 128gb as standard anyway. It's clearly a scam at this point.
  • Hey, use The Cloud! Lower physical storage, death of unlimited data in most places. Cha-ching!
  • Cloud storage give me 10 -15 or even maybe 50go.. Then, I have to pay for storage. Which, after paying 700$ for a phone, is ridiculous. Like SeanJenkins said, all phones should have a minimum of 32Go and up. I currently have a LG G3 with 32Go plus 128Go SD card.
  • If you take a lot of pics you need to have 32, cloud or not.
  • And what are you storing that takes up THAT much space? I've never needed more that 32 gigs for anything, including big games
  • I'm currently eating up about 45 gb, with music/apps/pics/vids... it's not that hard to do.
  • Have you seen the size some of the gameloft and ea games are? Install the carrier bloatware and two of those games and 16 gig devices are full.
  • I agree in part, but the real issue is small amounts of built-in storage. Mobile devices should have a minimum of 32GB. Personally, 80GB is perfect for me. Posted via Android Central App
  • Another idiotic comment about what a phone's minimum storage should be...will the ignorance never end? Posted from the Avengers: Age of Droid Ultra
  • I was glad Apple went 16, 64 , 128. They should have started at 32GB. (Wife wanted an Iphone 6). My S4 has 32GB as does my daughter's S4. I find 32GB is a great starting point and having a 32GB memory card to run programs from helps too.
  • I'm always really curious about what it is that people are storing on their devices that takes up so much storage. Unless your are trying to store your entire collection of music and movies in one place, I just don't get it. Even then, if you are take care managing your content, it is really simple to get by with only 32 GB.
  • I was once like you, but I got over it. SD cards are no big deal. Especially now since LTE availability has made huge jumps. The cloud is working better than ever. Don't get me wrong, it would be nice, but at this point, meh.
  • *uck no, to big
  • 6 inches is just too big. I'm going to be sad if it only comes in this size. *edit - I just realized how inappropriate that sounds...
  • Awesome!
  • Too buku.
  • Pretty sure this is the DROID or DROID Turbo if you google the model number XT1254 its was started back in August
  • Doesn't have Verizon bands, just ATT and TMobile.
    This is the Nexus 6.
  • Doesn't it also need the 2100, 3G band to be compatible with T-Mobile?
  • Correct. And for 4G HSPA+ and AWS. This cannot be a Nexus device. It's also missing T-Mobile LTE band 12 which I expect the Nexus to have.
  • False. See other posts about 2100.
  • AWS doesn't transmit on 2100MHz so it isn't listed / tested. AWS goes up on 1700MHz and down on 2100MHz Posted via Android Central App
  • Plz work on sprint Posted via Galaxy note 3 4.4 kitkat
  • This device certainly does not work on Sprint.
  • So, no Sprint this year? I'd never buy this big ass tablet but it's really too bad if true. I thought maybe having the phone sold through Google like the Nexus 5 would be a new way of selling phones that work on Sprint. It was pretty cool buying it directly through Google and knowing updates weren't reliant on Sprint for the first time ever..
  • I was likely going to buy this immediately, but if it won't be on Sprint or CDMA has a separate model, I'll have to reconsider. Although there were problems last year with buying the Nexus 5 from Google Play and then actually convincing someone at Sprint to give you a SIM card, it was still great to have the option to buy the phone like that.
  • Same here, wasn't getting it anyway (and wasn't displeased with the track record for updates on my previous HTC phones on Sprint), but I'd be disappointed if Sprint isn't trying to get a Nexus two years in a row and/or if the Nexus is suddenly taking a step back in carrier compatibility... What's up with Silver anyway, seems like the last couple years there are lots of rumors about this or something like it around mid year and then it all quiets down by year's end and it never materializes. I was just about to switch to Sprint's $60 off contract plan ($53 with my discount vs the $64 I pay now on a contract plan). Might have to rethink that if cheaper options like the Nexus line aren't gonna be readily available on Sprint..
  • Holy crap that's huge Posted via the Android Central App
  • If the frequencies quoted are accurate then it can't be a 'DROID', since that implies Big Red and the frequencies for Verizon weren't listed.
    It would make sense that it's the Nexus 6 since Big Red hasn't been Nexus-friendly for awhile. Posted via Android Central App
  • The height of this device going through the FCC is far too short to be the Nexus 6. 143.5mm puts this device in between the Galaxy S5 and the LG G3. There is no way a 5.9" device will be smaller than the G3. Expect the Nexus 6 to be around 155-160mm.
  • That's what I was thinking, but the diagonal measure doesn't make sense for the given dimensions or a normal display ratio that would fit in the dimensions. Something with those numbers seems wrong. EDIT: ...unless due to the top and bottom curve the diagonal is measured smaller.
  • That diagonal measurement is for the overall dimensions of the device, not the diagonal of the display.
  • But the side dimensions don't calculate to that diagonal. Unless it measures with the curves and so max diagonal is less than calculated. Definitely not room for a 6" display, but perfect for 5.5" Posted via Android Central App
  • Wouldn't be the first time the FCC mucked up.
  • This is the rebranded Droid Turbo for AT&T. Similar to what they did for the Droid Razr and Atrix HD
  • Not from the US curious why people choose Verizon if it doesn't offer a lot of phones?
  • For me it's a matter of network coverage. Verizon offers me the best cell and 4g coverage so I have to choose between owning a Nexus on a network that sucks or owning a different handset on a network that delivers. I really wish AT&T or T mobile would upgrade in my area. Hell, if they were even half as good I'd switch in a minute.
  • Best overall network. Obviously that varies depending on where somebody lives, works and travels, but overall they have the best network. I wouldn't say Verizon doesn't offer a lot of phones, though. It doesn't care much for the Nexus line.
  • I think they offer most phones or a variant of most phones.
  • Gluttons for punishment Posted via Android Central App
  • With a big moto logo on the back cover, where's the nexus logo going?? I don't think This is a nexus. At least I hope its not. Posted via Android Central App
  • I still think this is the Motorola Moto S, not the next Nexus. "Shamu" = S Posted via the Android Central App
  • So much wrong, so little time...
  • Yeah this is not the Nexus. Try again Engadget. lol
  • If only it was smaller in size like 5.2 then I would buy it. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Then today is your lucky day!
  • I have to say, that g3 still looks awesome! Posted via the Android Central App
  • for those crying that it's too big - Out of the way you sons of bitches!!!
  • Yeah, this can't be the Nexus 6. The dimensions apparently measure the entire of the device (not just the display, the wording is a bit confusing). 154.4 mm diagonal is 6.08 inches, which tells me the display fits within that is more than likely less than the purported display size of the Shamu device. Also lack of global bands and specific to AT&T. This has to be some variant of the Droid Turbo for AT&T.
  • It's not ATT specific, TMobile uses those bands as well. Also, it's a US device, International bands are unlikely for something in the FCC.
    It's the Nexus 6.
  • All the complaining about the screen size, just wait until you see the price if you must have the Nexus 6. That will either stop your complaints or redirect them.
  • The 6" screen is a deal breaker, regardless of the rest of the specs. Are they trying to kill the Nexus like with this release?
  • TL;DR - This has 10 bands, not 25 from last years N5. No AWS (1700/2100)=NO HSPA+ on T-Mo, which N4 had. Not likely Nexus. I get it. People are hopeful, especially because they think they don't want a Huge Nexus (5.9"). But compare the bands. Here are the bands for the Nexus 5 (North America Edition, per Google's support page). I've added a * STAR next to the bands seen on this device. GSM:
    * 850
    * 1900 CDMA: Band Class:
    10 WCDMA: Bands:
    * 2
    * 4
    * 5
    19 LTE: Bands:
    * 2
    * 4
    * 5
    * 17
    41 This phone also has LTE band 7, which last year's Nexus 5 did not. It lacks AWS (1700+2100 UMTS) so it can't do HSPA+ on TMo, which is something both the N4 & N5. Ask yourself IF Google would take a Nexus from 23 bands (and a multi network, multi country roaming beast) to 10 bands, all while excluding things like band 12 or AWS needed to even make it run well or at all on T-Mobile? They wouldn't IMHO.
  • T-Mobile 1700/2100 is being phased out ("refarmed") from HSPA to LTE. They're moving HSPA to 1900, so that would just affect users not in refarmed areas. Although I do totally agree, I think part of (most of, even) the awesomeness about the Nexus 5 was that it supported a shitton of bands.
  • The entire device is 6" so I doubt this is a Nexus 6 with a 6" screen. Probably an AT&T version of the Droid Turbo.
  • There is another version too, it's the Verizon turbo, exact same phone, FCC ID IHDT56PK1. Chances are the Verizon version comes out one month before the at&t one.
  • ha a VZW Nexus is not a real Nexus!
  • UGH!
  • Can't wait..Sorry CDMA users, you are unfortunately stuck with phone with ugly logos and bloat.
  • This will be the first phone to drive me away from the Nexus line.. sad. Until its officially announced I'm still in denial. Posted via Android Central App
  • What would you get instead? Posted via Android Central App
  • I'm thinking the new Moto X. Posted via Android Central App
  • The Moto X line is like a Nexus+. I made the same move last year.
  • Too bad these Nexus phones only work with T-Mobile and the worst customer service in history (AT&T). I would love to have one but T-Mobile sucks where I live and AT&T sucks as a company throughout the world.
  • AT&T is BYOD device friendly and i've been very happy with their ubiquitous LTE coverage and customer service. i don't like VZW because i don't like closed networks and i don't want to live under an evil authoritarian totalitarian regime. choice and freedom always beats closed and proprietary.
  • I'm holding out that the new nexus will be the Moto X that supports band 12. Posted via Android Central App
  • Oh I'm gonna get one... And plan on giving n5 to moms or girl... A hand me down nexus 5.. Who'd of thunk? Posted via the Android Central App
  • And BTW T mo's LTE is pretty hot...I'll kill my friends on att in bay area . and that metro LTE on t mo towers... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Just take my money!
  • Take all my money right now
  • It will be so funny if these "leaks" turn out to not be the Nexus and these websites were just getting trolled.
  • Way too big Posted via Android Central App
  • This device looks nothing like the Turbo leaks and other Droid phones. No kevlar and wierd shapped back. I don't think this is the Droid Turbo. Not saying it's the nexus either but I don't think this fits the droid look.
  • BLARG! Where is band 12? That is what I'm waiting for. I don't want to buy a new phone now only to have it not be able to get onto tmobile's sweet new bandwidth.
  • No band 12 (700) tmobile new frequency, bummer. Posted via Android Central App
    Looks like this to me Posted via Android Central App
  • I wonder if more people could get past the size of phone if the rumored components were equal or better than the Note 4. I think a Nexus 6/X with the best components available would be a serious hot seller even at 6", guess we can only hope at this point. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Thank you my phone is on its way. GOODBYE SAMSUNG!!!!! ~My $0.02~
  • Oh contraire. If Google decides to stick it's head up it's arse and introduce a 6 inch device and expect us to pay a premium, think again Google. The Note 4 has LTE Category 5 or 6. The Note has expandable memory and a removable battery. Why anyone would buy the Nexus (with virtually no warranty or support) over the Note 4 would be completely baffling,
  • I currently have a Nexus 7 LTE table and I can see me replacing it with the Nexus 6 or whatever it's going to be called since it's reaching phone-tablet (phablet) size. I'll be putting my Nexus 7 LTE table on the market soon.
  • Yes Posted via Android Central App
  • If it's the right price I'm buying. If it's 500 not dice. G3 or z2. Like the new moto x but that battery. Posted via Android Central App
  • Having a hard time choosing between Note 4, Z3 or the Nexus 6/X = ( can only get one. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I am not convinced that Shamu is the Nexus. Why can't this just be a 6 inch Motorola? Google wouldn't want the Motorola dimple on the Nexus, right?
  • Are any of those CDMA bands supported by Verizon?
  • They didn't state any CDMA bands. They stated WCDMA bands which is UMTS and Verizon does not have WCDMA/UMTS. They have CDMA/EVDO..... So no.
  • In theory it could be an LTE only device for Verizon with VoLTE now being active, but it's highly unlikely.
  • As an N5 fan, I appreciate any product that will make my life easier. Form and function are paramount. As a recovering spec chaser, I am finally picking devices that I like after a year of use. Bloatware was only a negative to me once I tried a phone without it. If the N6/NX provides a larger screen with the same or improved battery life over the N5, the Android OS gives a new product feel after every update. Only wish, and its highly unlikely, is that some of those motoX features were made available as well. For those not interested in the larger screen, the motox is a well worth test for anyone else looking to drop spec chasing cold turkey.
  • Hopefully it goes to sprint, otherwise att here I come! Posted via NSA Spy Van 37...... Free candy??
  • It is going to be very funny when the Nexus arrives and it is nothing what any of the speculators thought it was going to be. I predict that all of the these supposed Nexus sightings are nothing more than misdirection.
  • I'm interested in a 6 phone. Especially one from Motorola. I just hope this comes in a Verizon flavor as well.
  • If the Camera on this phone is better than the M8, and the speaker is louder than the N5, and the battery life is on par with with the M8 I will get it.
  • To be honest this just makes me lust for an LG G3 haha!
  • I hope a smaller version of the phone will be released.
  • I think that the 6 in. phone and the 4:3 tablet with keyboard point to Android L getting multi-window support. The size is going to piss off those who like the N5 but remember this is a development device and Google knows that huge phones like this are only going to get more popular so Android needs to grow too. L is coming with touchless voice control too right? What's more perfect than showcasing it on a Moto?
  • If it has an oled screen I'll definitely buy it to replace my nexus 7 and nexus 5. But I think the decision makers at google love backlight bleeding too much.
  • My tired eyes will be glad of a bigger screen, bring it on..... Posted via the Android Central App
  • I was waiting for this, but I've moved on since news of the size became more or less official. The G3 shown in the picture is looking quite attractive to me now, because i spite of the 5.5" screen it doesn't seem a lot bigger overall because of the screen going almost to the edge. The Nexus 6 is looking like it would be too awkward to use comfortably. Probably be ok for watching films on, but I don't do that - much rather watch them on my tv. Sorry if that makes me untrendy.
  • 6in is just too big imo. Really bummed they didn't keep it at 5.5 or lower. Posted via Android Central App
  • there is no proof only hearsay the nexus 6 is 5.9 inches.
  • This article is as bogus as the pic of the Motorola claiming to be the Nexus..
  • This phone could not possibly be the Nexus 6. The American version of the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, and Nexus 5 all included the international GSM bands! This phone also has far less LTE bands did the Americans version of the Nexus 5. Duh.
  • No sprint variants? What a bummer Posted via LG G3 Sprint
  • Can anyone tell me if it will have sd slot and removeable battery?... Posted via Android Central App
  • This phone (model number XT1254) was supposed to be Motorola Quark / Motorola Droid Turbo...
    What's changed? Only 4x LTE bands? LTE Bands 2, 4, 5, and 17
    Nexus 5 LTE Bands: 1, 2, 4, 5, 17, 19, 25, 26, 41 (nord america) / 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 20 (rest of world) - see
  • Too big I don't think I'd get it if it was 5.5" I think close to 5" is gravy spot give .3" either way. I think 6" is a very small selection of people unfortunately Posted via Android Central App
  • I think it's great and we are all very lucky that there is a wide selection of phones each with there positives and negatives. Hell - we could live in a world where there is only one option - and it's a Nokia 3310. I don't know if 6" is too big or not. I won't make that call until I see the phone in the flesh. I have a Nexus 5 which is roughly the same screen size as my first Android (Galaxy S3) but the phone seems smaller. I would like a bigger screen, but that's just me. Is 6" too big for a Nexus device? We should wait and see.
  • it is not a smartphone with compact dimensions like galaxy s5 that we offer this year, Google, but a giganteste Phablet 5.96 inches that comes directly compete with the Galaxy Note 4 and iPhone 6 Plus. more info:
