Next gen Nexus handset to launch during Halloween as the Nexus X

Nexus X

Google’s upcoming Nexus smartphone is widely believed to be known as the Nexus 6, although the company hasn’t confirmed this yet. But a new report suggests that Google might be looking to avoid that name fearing copyright infringement from the publishers of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, which is a book published back in 1968. The novel has the mention of Nexus-6, which could raise potential trademark infringement issues for Google.

And to evade these concerns, Google will apparently call the smartphone Nexus X. Motorola is known for the Droid X smartphone which launched a few years ago, so this could be a fitting name for the handset. It is said that the handset will be launched during Halloween without much fanfare, much like the Nexus 5 was launched last year.

The smartphone is expected to pack a 5.9 inch 2K resolution display, a Snapdragon 805 chipset, a 13-megapixel camera with OIS and a refined version of the Android L operating system which is currently in development.
