Is Google spoiling us with 2 Nexus smartphones this year?

Last week when we discovered that Motorola may release 8 smartphones by the end of the year, it shed some light on the Google Nexus plans. Now we've received further information that makes it looks like Google will release more than just the Nexus 6 (Nexus X) this year.

Earlier, we reported that either the Moto X Play, a 5.2-inch device, or the 5.9-inch Moto S, would see release based on public reaction to the Moto X. PhoneArena is now reporting that if Motorola releases the Moto S, which stands to be the same size as the Nexus 6 (Nexus X) at 5.9 inches, then Google will adopt the 5.2 inch Moto X Play as a Nexus device.

This story sounds extremely thin at the moment, with PhoneArena stating somebody "close to the supply chain" as a source. It’s not all that easy to just repurpose an unused device, then cover the manufacturing, marketing and distribution - especially if it is all just based on the back of a “if you’re not using it, can I have it?” kind of deal. This may explain why we have seen some of confusion surrounding the Nexus and Motorola lines, however.

The two devices may launch simultaneously on, wait for it... September 17th or October 31st, depending on which uninformed report you want to believe. Lets just be really extremely very sceptical about this until we know more. If you care for some further reading, check out our Nexus 6 rumors, news and specs page.

Do you think the news of a second Nexus device sounds plausible or completely bogus?

  • I will believe any future info on what Motorola Mobile / Google brand Nexus will offer consumers when I see it officially published by said companies via their own websites and viral .marketing campaign ....

    I am looking forward to the 2nd gen Moto X

    I am curious to see if LG, or Motorola, will continue the Google Nexus franchise (didn't Nexus smart phones begin with a Samsung?)

  • Now I'll only believe it when I touch them at BestBuy, "Thomas"!
