Shamu aka Nexus X (or Nexus 6 too, if you prefer)

Exciting news for fans of the Nexus line of Google Android devices, it looks like the Nexus X is nearly upon

Yet more details have been emerging about what the device will have to offer and as it stands it looks to be mightly impressive, although a bit of expensive than the impressive launch Nexus 5.

So, the Motorla Shamu (as it is known at present) looks to feature:

  • Android L (5.0)
  • 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
  • 3GB RAM
  • 5.9″ 2560 x 1440 QHD display
  • Qualcomm Adreno 420 GPU
  • 12-megapixel rear camera that will be capable of recording 4K UHD video

Which all shapes up to make a tasty looking bundle. The price? Well, if the leaked price from Zuaba is to be believed, it’s £349/$579, popping it in a slightly higher bracket than the Nexus 5, but still well below iPhone prices.

The beefed up stats look like they justify the price increase nicely, so I’ll eagerly be awaiting the first reviews of the unit before jumping in myself.
