We had a sneak peak at the Nexus 6 the other day, but it seems that it’s busted out of its confines and made an appearance out in public as well, as shown in the photograph above.
What do we know? Not much. The photos, courtesy of Android Police, show that the phone is in a snap-on case of some description (presumably to protect the identifying features a little) so we don’t have a good look at the outline of the phone’s case. From what we can see, though, the power and volume buttons are more centred on the right side of the device, to make them more easily accessible on a larger frame device.
The front facing speakers are also visible, and so are a few other features such as Android L, a headphone jack in the centre, and a mysterious Heart shaped notification icon which could well be a Google Fit notification.
You may also notice that the phone isn’t overwhelmingly large; while it certainly looks a bit bigger than the Nexus 5, it’s not significantly so. Without a frame of reference it’s a bit hard to do more than speculate, but we’re looking at something perhaps not quite as big as a Galaxy Note, but still packing a 5.9″ screen.
It won’t be long until we know if this is (or was) a Nexus 6, because a rumoured launch date is only a few weeks away at most. What do you make of all this?
