A report issued by the Wall Street Journal reveals that Google will unveil a 5.9-inch Nexus smartphone sometime towards the end of this month. This report does not take us by surprise as we have been hearing about it for quite some time now. Nevertheless, being reported by a reliable source such as the Wall Street Journal, does solidifies the arrival of the much awaited device.
The WSJ also unleashed Google’s plan to launch the Android L, along with the new Nexus (which might resemble the device shown in the picture above). A while ago in August, we also reported that the latest Nexus might be named as Nexus X not Nexus 6, but that was a tentative report so the name still stands a mystery. It has been leaked in a number of benchmarking softwares including GFXBench, Geekbench, and CPUZ.
The forthcoming device which has a codename, Shamu, is crafted by Motorola, and will be the most advanced Nexus handset till date. The device might come with a 5.9-inch QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) display, a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage, a 12-megapixel rear camera with 4K video recording, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 3200mAh battery. It will come with Android L pre-installed and all the necessary sensors which are usually seen in high-end smartphones.
The launch date for the 5.9-inch Nexus is not confirmed yet, but rumour has it that it might be unveiled next week, either on October 15 or 16. The device should be priced around $419 but take it with a pinch of salt. Stay connected with us for more news on Nexus and also let us know what are your thought on this 5.9-inch powerhouse?
