Following yesterday’s reveal of the mock-up image of the Nexus X a real-life image of the device surfaced online which pictured the device next to the LG G3. Let’s just say the phones mammoth 5.92-inch screen size totally dwarfed the LG G3 and looks likely that the next Nexus device will be a phablet after all.

Currently codenamed the Motorola Shamu, the Nexus 6, or Nexus X as we’re also thinking it’ll be called, is a mammoth handset with a fairly large 5.92-inch QHD display. At a glance the device looks like a blown up version of the second generation Moto X, and upon closer inspection that description is pretty accurate. The image, which you can see below, was posted in the comments on Android Police’s post about the 9to5Mac press render.

As for specs, along with the huge 5.9-inch screen we’re going to see a resolution of 2560×1440, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, 64GB was also rumoured for the device too. If you know you’re smartphone specs, you’ll definitely be able to see that Google and Motorola are definitely stepping things up and that there’s clearly no love lost between the two companies.

The question I have for you is, do you want a Nexus phablet? Or are you happy with the way things have been over the past few years?
