Google ‘Nexus X’ to be made by Moto and released near Halloween, report says

The Nexus 6 is dead; long live the Nexus X. Word on the street is that the upcoming Nexus smartphone from Google will be made by Motorola but it won’t be called the Nexus 6. Reportedly, Google is hoping to avoid any potential lawsuits over the use of Nexus 6 and has instead opted for a different name. We should now look for the Nexus X to take its place.

At a minimum we might assume that the Nexus X is based off of the next-gen Moto X smartphone, but perhaps we’ll get something even better. Previous, and recent, rumors suggest we could get something on the order of 5.9-inch QHD display (2560 x 1440 pixels), and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor. Toss in a 13-megapixel rear camera with OIS, a front-facing 2.1-megapixel shooter, and the latest version of Android and we’re sold.

As to when we might see the Nexus X we’re told to expect a quiet debut around Halloween. I am not sure how you do a hushed launch for a Nexus device, but whatever.

How does a 5.9-inch Lemon Meringue Pie-powered Moto X sound to you?
