The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Google’s Nexus 6 will launch before the month is out. Word of an autumn launch has been flying round and now we can make that timetable even more precise. The leak seems valid as well, with WSJ saying that the date has been backed up by three sources. With an October launch, we could even see the Nexus 6 launching alongside the rumored HTC Nexus 9 tablet. To round things off, a major release of that sort would likely include the launch of Android L, making it a triple win for Android fans.
Long lines of rumors and leaks have pointed to the Nexus 6 being built by Motorola and including a 5.9-inch display, placing it in the realm of phablets. While the large size will likely be frustrating to those of us comfortable using smaller displays, Google is obviously hoping that most will enjoy the extra screen real estate that the phone offers. We’ll have to wait until the end of October to see whether or not that’s true.
