Nexus5We’ve been hearing countless rumors in the past few weeks about the upcoming Nexus device. Previously, we heard it would carry the Nexus 6 moniker, but it seems Google may avoid using it due to trademark issues, as per a new report. Instead, Google will launch it as Nexus X without any official announcement, similar to last year when it introduced the [easyazon-link asin=”B00GD6H0NU” locale=”us”]Nexus 5[/easyazon-link] to the public.

There’s no official confirmation if it will carry the same name when it hits retail later this year, but it’s known as Nexus X internally at Motorola and comes with a XT110 model number. Using Nexus 6 would have made a lot of sense since rumors suggest it will be a 5.9-inch device, and since it’s the sixth iteration in the Nexus line up, it made sense but it seems the search engine giant will ditch it to avoid any legal issues.

As per rumors, the upcoming Nexus 6 will rock a 5.9-inch display sporting a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, with a quad-core Snapdragon 805 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 13MP camera for photos and videos, a 2.1MP front-facing camera and Android L as its operating system out of the box.
