The Nexus 6 with 5.9-inch screen would be manufactured by Motorola

Motorola and Google would be working on Shamu, a possible Nexus smartphone

Lately there have been many rumors about the future Nexus 6 and its possible manufacturer. Already with the current Nexus 5 there was talk of the possibility that Google would stop working with LG to manufacture the smartphone and leave it in the hands of another manufacturer, but in the end this did not happen. Now, with the next generation of its smartphone Google could leave its manufacture in the hands of another company, specifically Motorola . Or at least that’s what the latest data on the net shows us.

Apparently, Motorola would not only be working on the Moto X+1, the successor to the Moto X, but also would work together with Google to launch what will be the next flagship of the Mountain View guys, the Nexus 6.

As you may remember, Google bought Motorola a few years ago but sold it some time ago and it is no longer their property. However, this would not be an impediment for Motorola to make a Nexus device for the first time .

Motorola Shamu, a 5.9 inch device that could belong to the Nexus range

According to the latest information on the web, Motorola is working on Shamu, a mysterious smartphone with a 5.9-inch screen that could be part of Google’s Nexus range . At the moment we do not know much more about its possible technical specifications, although there is talk of the possibility of it incorporating a fingerprint sensor.

Previously it had been spoken of the possibility that the next Nexus integrates a fingerprint sensor , a feature that is very logical considering that Samsung has already incorporated it into the Galaxy S5 and that Apple has it in the iPhone 5s and very possibly in the future iDevices to be launched this year.

However, we cannot take this data as 100% real information since at the moment neither Google nor Motorola have made any statement about it.

The launch of Nexus 6 is scheduled for November

Finally, from AndroidPolice they comment that the Nexus 6 could be presented in November , thus complying with Google’s launch calendar, since the previous model became official that same month last year.

In addition, the terminal would not arrive alone, but would do it together with Android L , the next big update of Google’s mobile operating system that was released in this year’s Google IO.
