New leak hints at 5.2 inch QHD display and Snapdragon 805 SoC for the Motorola Shamu

Only yesterday we came across a report which indicated that the Nexus 6 or the Motorola Shamu will pack a Snapdragon 801 SoC and most likely a 1080p display. However, a new finding from GFX Bench is contradicting those reports by claiming that the smartphone will in fact sport a quad core Snapdragon 805 SoC clocked at 2.6 GHz and a 5.2 inch 2K resolution display.

Unsurprisingly, Android L is expected to be running by default and the device is also revealed be packing a 12-megapixel camera on the back. The default storage appears to be 24GB which roughly translates to 32GB and there’s 3GB of RAM as well. So it seems like Motorola has packed potentially everything one can imagine from a flagship Android phone with the Shamu. But we’re aware that it could very well be a device which Motorola and Google are using as a prototype to test its functioning compared to a standard 1080p/Snapdragon 801 combo.

While the details are quite scarce at the moment, we can expect the Motorola Shamu / Nexus 6 to break cover sometime later this year. The HTC Nexus 8 could be shown off during the same time, so it could be a pretty eventful year for us Android fans.
