After a series of more questionable leaks (remember the sandwich bag?), our friend from TKTechNews may have landed himself the Moby Dick of leaks. We’ve heard rumors of a Motorola-made Nexus 6 phablet launching later this year packing super high-end specs and running under the codename “Shamu,” no doubt a play on words given the device’s larger screen size.

More recently, a leaked benchmark may have confirmed this whale of a device’s specs, touting a Snapdragon 805 processor, 2560 x 1440 resolution display, 3GB of RAM, and a 13MP camera. Pretty much all the things that make an Android fanboy’s heart go pitter-patter. The only oddity was the reported 5.2-inch display which didn’t line up with previous rumors, but we’re sure had something to do with it running on a prototype device of some sort.

Today, TKTechNews comes out of left field with a few leaked images of a what could be a Motorola phablet headed to Verizon. Pictured above is the protective film taken from a “Motorola Moto S” showing cutouts for speakers not unlike the recently leaked Motorola Moto X+1.  But that’s not all, TK also managed to grab a few alleged images of the Moto S’s hardware info as reported by the device. Although blocked out to protect the original leaker’s identity, TK ran the device’s ESN/IMEI and found that it is indeed a Verizon device, although of unknown origin.

TK is promising to follow up these leaks with images of the back of the device, so we’ll be checking back with him to see what he turns up. What do you guys think? Would any of you be interested in a Moto S phablet on Verizon?
