Will the upcoming Google Nexus X look like this?

Rumoured Google Nexus X

It is increasingly looking like Google will unveil its newest Nexus devices sometime in mid-October, with October 16 looking as a likely date. Google is expected to unveil the Nexus 9 tablet which will be built by HTC and a new smartphone built by Motorola. The latter has been the topic of a number of rumours as the Motorola Shamu (its internal codename) as well as Google Nexus 6 and more recently as the Google Nexus X. New details have now come to light courtesy of 9to5Google.

The latest report suggests that the Google Nexus X will come with a 5.92-inch display sporting a WQHD resolution (2,560×1440 / 498 PPI ), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of interal storage, a 13MP rear camera capable of shooting 4K UHD video, a 2MP front camera, a 3,200mAh battery.

The device is said to look much like an over-sized Moto X. The renders obtained by 9to5Google and reportedly based on “a real device” certainly appear to support this claim. Hardware, like buttons, has been adjusted a bit but the overall configuration and layout remains the same. The bezel also retains the familiar Moto X look.

Despite its strong ties to the Moto X, it appears at this point that Motorola apps and features like Moto Assist will not make their way over to the Nexus X. It will instead run a completely stock version of Android L as Nexus devices have done to date.

The report does not rule out the possibility that Google could launch a smaller Nexus smartphone alongside the Nexus X phablet. With an announcement perhaps only three weeks away, there is still time for leaks and rumours to give us a better idea of what Google has in mind this time around.
