Since it’s been practically established that Google’s Nexus line has a healthy future ahead of it, it’s time to welcome back Nexus 6 rumors, now hinting at a “killer”, gargantuan 5.9-inch model co-manufactured by, surprise, surprise, Motorola.
There’s been a lot of chatter in regards to a possible termination of Google’s Nexus program lately, but a candid company exec quashed all rumors, basically confirming a new Nexus device will be coming alongside Android L in the fall.
The manufacturer of the last two Nexus smartphones shall apparently pass the baton to another Android OEM for the sixth-generation “pure Google” handheld, as long as there will be a Nexus 6.

Google and LG’s fruitful partnership is about to enter a new stage, as a co-branded smartwatch is reportedly in the works, with hardware specifications eerily similar to Samsung Galaxy Gear’s features.
Although it’s never enjoyed success in the tablet arena and backed out of the game more than two years ago, HTC is reportedly prepping a grand comeback, thanks to a mysterious high-end Nexus slate rolling out later this year.
Less than 24 hours after Google made Motorola’s unloading to Lenovo official, the first rumors of how exactly the Chinese intend to use the new assets and connections to their advantage have surfaced, pointing to an imminent Lenovo-built Nexus.
Notorious and somewhat controversial Russian tech journalist Eldar Murtazin is back in the spotlight after making some interesting claims regarding Galaxy S5’s ETA, now suggesting Google’s Nexus line has a very feeble future.
Debunking every single rumor between late last year and yesterday, an LG-made second-generation Nexus 10 has been pictured by two sources seemingly unconnected. Furthermore, the tab has been allegedly listed for a short while on a British online retailer with a full spec sheet.
It’s no longer a mystery in many ways smaller, more portable tablets are doing better than “full-sized” 10-inchers, at least as far as the Android landscape is concerned, but what is the perfect size after all? Is it seven inches a la Google’s Nexus 7?
Following a genuine rumor overload that was cut short almost a little too late, Google Nexus 5 cravers are unsurprisingly faced with an availability news overload less than 24 hours after the phone’s glamour-free formal intro.
How much hype is too much? We’re probably about to find out, as we’re in the midst of a genuine rumor overload starring possibly the worst kept secret in Android history, Google and LG’s Nexus 5.

In this day and age, when it’s harder to keep a secret linked to an unannounced mobile product than, say, pass a bill in Congress (and we know very well how hard that is), Google is this close to dropping the second bomb in a matter of less than two months.
Another day, another new Nexus 5 rumor to keep the never-ending speculation game going. Or in the case of today, another bundle of rumors, as the past few hours have seen the reports on availability and features of the next-gen “pure Google phone” downright exploding.
As a loyal, longstanding fan of the Discovery Channel show “MythBusters”, I’m sad to say I find no pleasure whatsoever in being able to debunk one of the stronger popular beliefs as far as the tech-focused media is concerned.
