An unreleased Motorola device has just appeared in a new image and it could be Motorola’s rumored “Shamu” Nexus device. For months, word has been swirling around that Motorola would be making a supersized Nexus device. Until now, we haven’t seen a picture of the device, but today’s leak could change that. A Motorola device with a slightly sketchy “Shamu” label on it has appeared in a new photo next to an LG G3. And dear lord, it’s massive.
The device pictured is significantly bigger than the LG G3 in both height and width. At the same time, however, the Motorola device looks nearly identical to the 2014 Moto X. To make matters more confusing, the photo showed up in the comments of Droid Life this morning with a caption that indicated that the phone was coming to Verizon. While we’re nearly certain that Google wouldn’t send a Nexus phone exclusively to a carrier, the phone also seems to line up with some of the previous rumors regarding the Moto “Shamu.”
So perhaps the device pictured is simply a Verizon-exclusive Moto X phablet that’s separate from a Motorola Nexus device. In any case, you can leave your thoughts down below in the comments.
