Motorola ShamuWe’ve seen a handful of rumors about the upcoming Nexus device, oft-rumored as the Nexus X codenamed Shamu. The device was spotted on a benchmarking website, and revealed a little bit of information about its internals, as well as a number of other leaked information. We’ve already heard the device will fall into the phablet category, boasting a 5.9-inch display.

Recently, the folks at 9to5Google revealed some information, including a mockup image, which reportedly confirms that the Motorola Shamu/Nexus X will come with a 5.92-inch display diagonally. Furthermore, 9to5Google also said the upcoming Motorola Shamu or the alleged Nexus device — if it turns out to be that — will be a scaled up second generation Moto X with, apparently, some minor design tweaks to make the big size look better.

As for the specifications, GFXBench revealed it will come with a 5.9-inch 2560 by 1440 display, but 9to5Google has a little more to add to it. Based on their calculations, the device will come with an impressive 498ppi pixel density, which is good, actually higher than many flagship devices available in the market. They also mentioned it will come with a massive 3,200 mAh battery to make sure it can last a considerable amount of time, since it has a big display to power as well.

Other features include a quad-core Snapdragon 805 SoC clocked at 2.6Ghz, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage with possibly more storage options as well once it goes on sale, 12MP camera for photos and videos, and Android L as its operating system out of the box.

Rumors suggest the alleged handset could see the daylight in mid-October, followed by availability in November. Let’s just take the above information with a grain of salt since there’s no confirmation from Motorola nor Google. We’ll update you as soon as more information comes up.
