In case you haven’t heard, ex-leakster Evan Blass (also known as @evleaks) has been going through tough times, so he cheered himself up by doing the one thing that used to make him happy — leaking a hot new device! This time he gives us our first look at an official render for the Nexus 6, a Motorola-made entry into Google’s longstanding pure Android series.
The render doesn’t reveal a whole lot, though this is the first time we’ve gotten a clear look at the front-facing stereo speakers expected to be built into the device. The render also shows the lowered power and volume buttons we’ve been hearing about. The design choice was made to make the buttons easier to reach on that massive 6-inch form factor.
Nothing else about the hardware stands out, though we do see a front-facing camera on the upper right and what looks to be a microUSB port on the bottom. The bottom doesn’t show a hole for a 3.5mm headphone jack which lines up with previous rumors that the port sits on the top of the device.
For software the render shows a clean Android L home screen, though it’s nothing we haven’t already seen from the Android L developer preview loaded up onto Nexus 5 units. And that’s about all. Rumors suggest Google is going to be revealing their Nexus 6 as early as tomorrow so be sure to circle back in case those rumors turn out to be dead on.
