The Nexus 6 is coming soon and it’s apparently in the hands of some carrier staff, with a user on reddit claiming to have had hands-on time with the device. He’s posted screenshots of the CPUID screenshots from the phone on Twitter as proof and is answering questions – vaguely, so as not to out his friend – on the reddit thread.
The redditor – lk182 – has shared the CPUID shots on his Twitter feed under the user name @r0fl, and if you’re to believe the screenshots, the phone will have a 2.6GHz Snapdragon 805 CPU with Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB RAM and is running Android 5.0. He doesn’t give an exact screen size, but does say it’s larger than 5.2″, with the screenshots below stating that the phone has a 1440×2392 resolution, leaving 168 pixels for the navigation bars.
As to the look of the phone, he says that the phone ‘looks exactly like a moto x it does have the flash circle’, he also describes the back as being ‘Soft touch plastic’, but he’s unsure as to whether the phone has a removable back, or if it has Qi charging. He also advised the handset he used has LTE, but it’s assumed based on his history that the phone is a Sprint branded device.
To claim credibility, he’s linked to Engadget showing his Twitter ID, to show that he’s leaked information related to Sprint branded devices to the site previously.
It’s quite easy to fake this sort of thing and with only a few weeks left till release, there’s been so many leaks already that he could have made it up. Over to you, what do you think?
