We recently published a gallery of photos for the upcoming Motorola Nexus 6; however, all of these were renders because there has not been a quality photo of the actual device itself. That is, until today. The team over at Android Police has received some photos from an anonymous tipster that claim to show someone using the Nexus 6 out in public.


There is a view from both the left and right side of the device. These pictures give us a good idea of how large this 5.9″ behemoth will be, and it does not appear to be that large. For such a large phone, the user seems to be handling it relatively easily with just one hand. Since there is nothing to compare the phone to, this does not mean that the Nexus 6 will be small as the user could just have very large hands. However, it does give us hope that Motorola has been able to squeeze a 5.9″ display into a reasonable form factor. Although the majority of the phone is obscured by a hand or the case, we can still compare some features to what we have seen in leaks. The headphone jack appears in the middle of the phone and the navigation buttons appear smaller which both line up with the earlier photos and renders. The power and volume buttons are also located at the middle of the phone which shows just how large this phone will be. The front-facing speakers are also visible in both photos. While there is no way to verify the device, all signs say that you are looking at the next Nexus 6 from Motorola. Hopefully we will see the entire phone sometime within the next month or so.

  1. Haven’t liking the idea of such a large Nexus phone but seems to be a reasonable size for a supposably 5.9 inch screen. I’m really excited about it after seeing these leaks!

    • Have you had the Note 3 in your hands? The Nexus 6 will be bigger than the Note 3 as the display is 0.2″ longer diagonally. The bezels appear to be bigger as well, but won’t know for sure until we get more definitive info about the Nexus 6.
      I would much rather have the Note 4 because of the multitasking features and S-Pen. The large display on this and the iPhone 6 Plus is a step in the right direction, but I’ve got a Nexus 7 if I simply want to view a large display. The Note series actually puts the extra screen real estate to good use.

      • I’m not really a fan of Samsung phones and touchwiz. I’ve owned ever Nexus phone since the Galaxy Nexus. I much prefer the stock android experience and the faster updates to the lasted version of Android. That’s why I’d rather get the Nexus 6.

      • After trying a 6+ in a store, it’s way bigger than the Notes. That massive upper and lower bezel makes it too hard to comfortably use even with my 9.5″ tip to tip hand.

        • Oh no doubt! I would never buy an iPhone, but the iPhone 6 Plus is much bigger than necessary. It’s bigger than Android phones that have .5″ more screen real estate. Doesn’t matter to IOS fanboys, though, because they’ll buy whatever Apple releases…
