Amidst the rumors of a new Nexus phone by LG and a Google X Phone by Motorola, images of a Nexus concept phone, allegedly to be made by Motorola, have surfaced. Although it is just a concept device, it is likely that we may be seeing the phone or something close in the future.
The Motorola Nexus+, whose images appeared online, could be a very thin and interesting design smartphone which could most likely be high-end 5 inch smartphone packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. The concept phone was designed by Christophe Siméon and should come with stock Android – probably 5.0 Key Lime Pie – if it actually will come.
Other specs of the Nexus+ include 1920 x 1080 full HD display resolution on the 5 inch screen, a 13 megapixels rear camera, a 2 megapixel front camera, a notifications capacitive pad, infrared port and dual frontal speakers. If such a device will actually come in the near future, it would be on the same league as the current high end smartphones including HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4, but with a lot more features, better speeds and probably a new operating system Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.
When it comes to design, the Nexus+ measures 137 x 67 x 8.5 mm and features a magnesium frame as well as a ‘carbon fiber back’. There is a high likelihood that the next Nexus device would be made by Google-owned Motorola although there have been rumors indicating that Google and LG are already talking about making a Nexus 5 smartphone. If this happens, there is a high possibility that the next nexus phone will be will look a lot like the Optimus G2, or could the G2 be the next nexus?
Motorola is probably the best candidate as the next Nexus handset but Google is on record saying that Motorola would go through the same process and treatment as other manufacturers. Google owns Motorola and the company is allegedly working on a variety of devices including the much publicized Google Phone X which is said to be designed to ‘revolutionize smartphones’.
The nexus+ will probably never see the light of day, but at this moment, the thought that a smartphone that will bring something new is coming is very much welcome.
