Just yesterday I was scribbling about the Motorola Shamu slash Google Nexus 6, though there wasn’t a great deal of rumour meat to digest.
Courtesy of yet another benchmark, we’re seeing a significantly more comprehensive list of Motorola Shamu/Google Nexus 6 specs, and it sounds like an absolute BEAST.
Before we get too excited, let’s all take a moment to do a few lines of salt. See, this latest Motorola Shamu/Google Nexus 6 spec rumour flies in the face of pretty much everything else we’ve heard to date.
In recent weeks, we’ve been told to expect a big 5.9in whale of a display, with a 1080p resolution and Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor. Not quite top-of-the-range specs, but then Nexus phones have always been fairly sensible.
As such, AnTuTu benchmark results for the “Google shamu” make for frankly questionable reading.
Supposedly – supposedly – Motorola Shamu/Google Nexus 6 specs include a 5.2in QHD display (2560 x 1440), Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, Adreno 420 GPU, 13MP/2.1MP cameras, 3GB of RAM, and of course Android L.
Truly, it doesn’t get much more top-of-the-range than that, which leaves us wondering if this isn’t someone’s wet dream rather than a realistic snapshot.
Having said that, the previous rumours were slightly fishy too. Surely 5.9in is a little on the big side, and there was mention, too, of a fingerprint scanner. Really?
Cripes, we don’t know what to believe now, though HTC’s Google Nexus 8/9 tablet is tipped to be a low-volume, premium beast; perhaps the Google Nexus 6 will match that promise.
