Are Motorola and Google working on the next Nexus?

Phone could be released this November targeting the US market.

By CBR Staff Writer

Google is working on the next version of Nexus smartphone under a code name ‘Shamu’, and could be built by Motorola, according to Android Police.

The phone or phablet will run on Google-built kernel, which is a significant feature of the Nexus device, and is expected to be powered by Android L, a new release of the mobile OS.

At 5.9 inches, the screen size is larger than many smartphones in the market like the Xperia and Galaxy Note 3, and the device may also include a fingerprint sensor.

LG, which built the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 for two consecutive years, said that it is not involved in the Nexus 6 manufacturing.

There are no leaked images but some reference to the device has appeared in Google’s issue tracker.
