Following our report from yesterday, the first real photo of the purported Nexus 6/X Motorola “Shamu” has surfaced on the internet. The photo appeared in a thread on the XDA-Developers community and was apparently posted by one named “Michael Sudol.” Notably, the photo is almost perfectly in line with the mock up we shared less than 24 hours ago, noting the device’s aluminum edges and build almost identical to that of the second generation Moto X.
What exactly this device will turn out to be is still unknown, but all rumors have pointed toward it being part of Google’s upcoming lineup of Nexus devices (one piece of evidence is that all Nexus devices have had ocean-themed names). While a 5.2-inch variation of this device is seemingly floating around, the device we’re familiar with has a 5.92-inch screen, QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 of 498 PPI, a 3,200 mAh battery, a 13 MP camera on the back, and a 2 MP front camera.

Notably, just like the device that we told you about yesterday, the “Shamu” doesn’t have any indication of the Nexus branding. We aren’t quite sure at this point what will come of the the small dimple below the camera, but it appears that the above device, possibly due to being in an earlier or later stage of development, actually has the “M” still intact.
Be sure to read our entire scoop on the device’s specs, and be on the lookout this October when the device is expected to be announced.
