After reporting that the Motorola Shamu – also known as the Nexus 6 in most rumors – might actually be called the Moto S a few days ago, TKTechNews is back with a different Motorola leak and this one says that the Lenovo-owned company is preparing an arsenal of new Android devices, including the Motorola Shamu Nexus 6.
FROM EARLIER: Motorola’s new mystery phone might not be the Nexus 6… it might be something even better
According to its sources, Motorola will launch up to eight devices by Christmas, including a Droid, Droid Maxx, Droid Turbo, Moto S, new Moto G, Moto X+1 and Moto X Play. Interestingly, one of the Droids is apparently tied to a Star Wars promotion.
The Moto S, which was previously said to be the Shamu, appears to be an independent version of the Nexus 6, and will reportedly pack a 5.9-inch display. A smaller version of it may ship with a 5.2-inch – the Moto X Play.
Verizon might be getting the “lion share” of these devices, although there’s also a possibility the Droids will hit other carriers, such as AT&T, under a different brand.
Motorola has yet to confirm any of these handsets, although the company may unveil some of them at its upcoming media event – likely the carrier-branded models, as a Nexus 6 is unlikely to arrive before Android L is ready for mass consumption.
TKTechNews has also provided a picture of a purported Nexus 6 handset, which displays specs for the handset, including a 2K display of unknown size, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 CPU, 13-megapixel camera and AOSP version of Android L. The device is clearly branded as a Google handset, assuming the image (available below) is accurate.
