We wondered when we would start seeing new "rumint" regarding the Google Nexus 6, and today answered that question. Not too long ago we first started hearing rumors about a new type of Nexus device from Google, dubbed the Nexus 6. We shared a few details about it including the 64-bit CPU. Today's new rumor sheds new light on the device.
Supposedly the Nexus 6 will be another LG made-device and will be based on the LG G3. This new rumor suggests that the internals of the Nexus 6 will be nearly (or completely) identical to the G3, but the outer shell will be different. If true, (and if the previous rumors about the G3 are true), then this would mean the Nexus 6 will have a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display, a 64-bit processor, and a 16MP rear camera. The other primary detail which was hinted at in this rumor was that it will be a more "lightweight" design compared to the G3.
The other obvious inference we can make from this is that the Nexus 6 may not be a 6-inch display device after all. The G3 is rumored to be a 5.2-5.5 inch phone. Does this mean that the Nexus 5 is being replaced with the Nexus 6? What does that do to the nomenclature of future Nexus phones? Nexus 7 is already taken...
It's also possible that the Nexus 6 does not exist and this will simply be the next (2014 Edition) of the Nexus 5. We will update you when we find out more.
