    It sure looks like Google's got two upcoming Nexus devices in the works, a Motorola-made phone, and an HTC-made tablet. This week, HTC sure seemed to confirm the latter, and rumors have suggested that this Nexus 9 could launch in just about one week, on October 15 or 16. But what about the phone? The presumptive Nexus 6 also seems very much real, having been spotted out in the wild. But when might it arrive? We're coming up on one year from the Nexus 5's launch – could the Nexus 6 also be on the menu for next week's rumored launch announcement? That's a question we find ourselves asking ...

    Google's next Nexus phone feels like it's so close we can almost touch it. Leaks of the Nexus 6 have been getting bigger and better in recent weeks, and as we approach the Nexus 5's first birthday, all eyes are on Google to see when it plans to go public with what's looking like it will be the first Nexus phablet. As smartphone fans know, one key step on the road to a handset's release is it getting its FCC certification – that's why so many eyes today are turning to a new set of FCC docs from Motorola. Are they really for the Nexus 6, though, or could there be another explanation. The ...

    As the launch of the next possible Nexus approaches it seems to be more and more clear that the next Nexus device will indeed be a phablet. The 5.9 inch phablet has been rumored and recently possibly spotted in the wild. It looks to be a pretty large phone that handles Facebook quite well, so that’s nice but it makes me wonder if this whole Nexus-as-a-phablet idea is such a good thing. The smartphone industry is trending toward larger screens. Apple notoriously and stubbornly clung to its 4-inch paradigm even when every other flagship worth talking about was at least .7 inches larger. ...

    Leaks concerning the Motorola-made Nexus 6 have seriously been on the upswing over the past week or two, and just yesterday we had the opportunity to get one of our best looks at the handset yet, spotted out getting some real-world testing. So while our general questions about this handset's existence may be fading under the mountain of evidence that continues to arrive, plenty of specifics have remained unclear. One of those important details concerns availability; sure, Google may start selling the Nexus 6 in just a couple more weeks, but once it does, what carriers will you be able to ...

    We're all getting just a little excited now that the traditional release of the next devices from Google is just around the corner. Center among them, we suspect, will be a new smartphone to replace the Nexus 5 from last year. We've heard plenty of rumors, some contradictory, but what do users want? Here is my Nexus 6 wish list. Battery Life All of us have been complaining about battery life for years. The bigger the screen and faster the processor, the more we are able to do with our devices. Combined, these can add up to miserable battery life, or the requirement to be next to a ...

    The next Nexus phone might be the first made by Motorola, the company that Google purchased, and then sold to Lenovo. The next Nexus phone, so far known by a tentative codename, Shamu, might wear the name of Nexus 6, and that might be because it's the sixth Nexus smartphone, or because it is rumored to have a six-inch(ish) screen. In any case, what you see above, and below, is a Nexus 6 carved out of wood, respecting the 5.9-inch rumored screen measurement, as well as the other bits of information which have leaked in the recent past. Said carved mock-up has been then shot in a Nexus 6 vs ...

    Excitement about Google's next Nexus smartphone has been heating up fast, fueled in recent weeks by a string of leaks revealing the Motorola phablet codenamed Shamu – the phone believed to arrive as the Nexus 6. We've seen a render, heard descriptions of the hardware, and even checked out a photo or two. Now the handset appears to be back, spotted out in the wild getting some real-world testing. At least, this certainly looks the part of Shamu: it's got top and bottom speaker cut-outs, is clearly a Motorola model, and is running Android L. Maybe the thing that most has us doubting if ...

    The LG-built Nexus 5 is a wonderful phone. Before it landed, many complained that the screen would be too big, and the overall size of the device would be prohibitively large for a smartphone. In the year since its been around, however, the Nexus 5 has proven to be very usefully sized, without being too large to comfortably carry. Now that we're getting close to when we suspect the "Nexus 6" will launch, we're hearing rumors that it may be called the "Nexus X" and codenamed the Motorola Shamu. If what we've pieced together holds true, the Motorola Shamu will be Google's first Nexus ...

    The last week has been chock full of leaks attempting to reveal the Motorola phablet under development as codename Shamu, believed by many to be the device that will become Google's next Nexus phone. But even with this hardware showing up in the flesh, a host of questions about the device and how it might launch continued to puzzle us. Last night, some new details about purported plans for the phone emerged in a new leak, giving us quite possibly our best sense of the new Nexus yet. First up, how about that name? Nexus 6 had been the presumptive launch name, but recent rumors suggested ...

    This week is proving to be a bit of a gold mine when it comes to us getting an idea of what the Motorola “Shamu” phone we've been talking about for a while – the model expected to be the next Google Nexus phone – will look like when it finally arrives. We quickly moved from a render to an actual photograph, though that pic was only of the phone's rear. Today we add a new image to that collection, and this time one that may just reveal Shamu's front side. The original image, as you see on the left is super-dark, with the handset's screen washing-out the exposure. On its own, it ...

    It's that time of the year again. Nexus season is upon us, and in full force too – after reports that the Nexus program would be coming to an end in favor of Android Silver, and then reports confusing us further by calling the other reports false, we're finally seeing somewhat-concrete evidence affirming the existence of a new Nexus. We saw a rather large leak from 9to5Google last night detailing Shamu allegedly, and now we have a follow-up report at hand: a Motorola Shamu image, in which the alleged Nexus is positioned next to the LG G3. Pictured is a massive Moto X-looking phone, ...

    Nexus hardware rumors have picked up as of late, after scares from late last year and earlier this year that the line of Google-made smartphones and tablets had seen its fate sealed. Along with the constant flow of rumors concerning the HTC Nexus 9, we've been hearing steady whispers of a Motorola Nexus phone as well. Today, a report from 9to5Google (along with a follow-up piece from Android Police) looks to corroborate what we've previously heard, as well as bring some new information into the mix. One of the first things we heard about the "Shamu" was the display size, which was ...

We do the hard work and heavy lifting so you can make the most informed decision when you go to by a smartphone for yourself. If this were a static, unchanging list, the task would be fairly easy, but it's not. The smartphones available t0 buy at any given time can easily rise into the dozens for mainstream devices, and into the hundreds when looking at everything that's ...

    Earlier this week, rumors about Google's follow-up to the Nexus 5 took a turn. We had already been talking about the idea of Motorola manufacturing this hardware, and after rumors bounced around the theory that we could be looking at a 5.9-inch phablet-sized handset, they settled back at a slightly more mainstream 5.2-inch screen size. But all of a sudden, it looked like we might not be getting the Nexus 6 we assumed would we be on the menu, and instead the phone would arrive as the Nexus X – a name we'd been tossing around a year prior in the lead-up to the release of the Moto X. Today ...
