The Nexus line may be getting a refresh. That's if you can believe a Federal Communications Commission filing that described a Motorola smartphone with a 6-inch screen and support for AT&T and T-Mobile frequency bands. According to Engadget, the design matches what many believe to be the Nexus 6.
Rumors of an upcoming Nexus phone have been poping up for a while. Android Police reported in July that the Nexus 6 would be a 5.9-inch handset made by Motorola. The Information reported a similar rumor that Motorola and Google were working together on a potential phablet, codenamed "Motorola Shamu". Many suspect that this name correlates with Motorola's history of naming phones according to their size. Hence, Shamu would describe Motorola's largest phone yet.
This isn't the only Nexus 6 revelation. Earlier this week, the Motorola Shamu made an appearance in the Geekbench database. While Google hasn't officially announced the next Nexus, many suspect that it will happen soon.
We gave the unlocked Nexus 5 a 4 star review, in part in thanks to its 2.26-GHz Snapdragon 800 processor (with 2GB of RAM). We were big fans of its $350 unlocked price tag, fast performance and soft-touch design. However the camera could have used a boost in color accuracy and the 4.95-inch Gorilla Glass display was a bit cloudy. Hopefully Google will put some resources behind this new model to correct those issues.
