Google’s next Nexus smartphone is expected to feature a high-resolution 5.9 inch display. Google hasn’t announced the device yet, but it’s reportedly being built by Motorola and over the past few weeks we’ve seen a couple of blogs post mockups of the phone based on leaked info from tipsters.

Now Android Police has a real-world picture of a phone that could be the Nexus 6.

nexus 6 maybe

The photo shows a phone that’s protected by a case, so you can’t see that many details. But it’s clearly running Google Android L (the next version of Android introduces a new design language and features a triangle-shaped back button), and as expected the volume and power buttons are about half-way up the side of the enormous phone, where they’ll be easier to reach when using the phone one-handed.

We’ll have to wait until Google officially announces the device to know for certain whether we’re looking at a Nexus 6.

But if the next Nexus is a 5.9 inch phone with an unusual button layout, it’d probably look an awful lot like the device shown in the picture.

Big-screened phones have become pretty popular over the past few years, with Samsung’s Galaxy Note series leading the way. While I’m still pretty happy with my 5 inch Nexus 5, a bigger Nexus 6 could be a good solution for folks who don’t want to buy separate phones and tablets.

Other rumored specs for the phone include a 2560 x 1440 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 13MP rear camera, support for recording 4K video, and 32GB of storage.

  1. This is the nexus 6 because I printed a copy of this and moto x 2014 from the same angles and this one’s power and vol buttons are way lower than that and it’s also bigger but I scaled and resized it, besides, I compared a mockup made from the rumors, looks exactly alike, by the way , if this was moto x, you wouldmget an at and t sign up on the notification bar, and kitkat but this is definitely android l.

  2. I put off getting a nexus 5 because I didn’t like the look of it and decided to wait for the nexus 6,at 5.9 inches it’s too big,a friend has the iphone 6 plus and it’s huge! I can’t use it one handed (maybe I just have small hands?) so looks like I’ll be sticking to my 16gb nexus 4 (which I’ve had since it came out) for some time yet

  3. Yeah I am also using my nexus phone to full capacity, think I’m gonna get a oneplus two or note 5 when the time comes to upgrade

  4. This is below Note 4 spec, right? And no no SD Card. I have already maxed out my Nexus 5 32GB.

    1. Then you really need to clean it up and get organized. People have no clue how much 32GB really is and how far it can go when used intelligently.

    2. dude, why do you think nexus devices and iphones do not support sdcards? Security, without unlocking your phone no one can just connect your phone to computer and see the files but they can just take the sdcard out and read your personal files. And yes note’s camera is better and the 8 core version has more cpu but this has true hd display, google support, and android l. Note won’t get android L till next year
