WSJ: Google's 5.9-inch Moto-built Nexus 6 is real, ready for launch this month

WSJ: Google's 5.9-inch Moto-built Nexus 6 is real, ready for launch this month Google will unveil their massive Nexus 6 in the coming weeks, says the WSJ, seemingly confirming weeks of rumors and leaks from Android-based media.
Built by Motorola, the Nexus 6 (codename Shamu for the giant killer whale) will have a 5.9-inch QHD screen, larger than even the iPhone 6 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy Note.

Design-wise the device will be similar to the newly released Moto X, and it will include a large 3200 mAh battery, dual 2MP/13MP cameras and will work with Motorola's turbo charging. Moto says just 15 minutes of charging will give you "8 hours" of life, although it is unclear if that means standby time.

There is little else known about the phone's specs except that it will launch with Android 5.0 Lemon Meringue Pie.

I'm deeply saddened by the extra large screen size. I really hoped for a 5.2 inch variant.

I doubt it. Lolipop/Liquorice/Layercake are the going bets, in that order.

A lot of people not interested in the larger size. I currently have a Nexus 4 and just purchased the Nexus 5 not wanting something larger than a 5" screen.

Apart from the size the aspect ratio is even more critical. In theory I can have a phone with 6" screen which is say only 2" x 555" in size !!!! So without knowing the resolution it would be difficult to judge user comfort level.

Yup, larger screens are going off the boil.


Its a lot easier being righteous than right.
