Google to launch Nexus phablet in October: Report



New Delhi, October 11-This may sound like a repeating of what we have been reporting for sometime but on Thursday, a report by the Wall Street Journal all but confirmed that Google is planning to launch the successor to the Nexus 5 smartphone in October.


Over the last few months, multiple reports have appeared on technology blogs related to the specs and release date of the Nexus 6, which has been dubbed the Shamu. The Shamu name popped up because of benchmark results that were leaked earlier in the year.

Numerous reports have suggested an October 15 date for the launch. Reports have also suggested that the phone will be larger than its predecessors at 5.9-inches. This means that the phone will likely compete more with the iPhone 6 Plus rather than the iPhone 6.

Hardware wise, the phone is expected to boast class-leading hardware. Rumours have suggested that it will have a sharp quad-HD screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilisation. The phone for Google will be important as the company will unveil Android L in its entirety.

A recent render of the phone suggests that it will be made by Motorola instead of LG and will be basically a larger version of the recently launched Moto X.
