Details about an Upcoming Nexus Smartphone from Google has been leaked on the AnTuTu benchmark, the device is supposed to be the upcoming Nexus 6, it will be a Motorola-made device codenamed "shamu". According to the leaked list, Motorola shamu will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset with a Quad-core Krait 450 processor clocked at 2.65GHz along with 3GB RAM, Adreno 420 GPU.


AnTuTu's database has the device under the name Google shamu, which seems to solidify the rumor that this will indeed be the Nexus 6. The device carries a 5.2" QHD (1,440 x 2,560 pixles) display with around 564 ppi for unmatched sharpness.


The camera on the back will be a 13MP unit coupled with a 2.1MP one for the front. Finally the Shamu will be adorned with Android L for good measure adding even more fuel to the Nexus fire. We hope that this device is real...



Nexus 10


First, we need to tell you that this rumor is a little Suspicious. The benchmarking website GFXBench had an interesting listing pop up in its database: a device labeled as "Google Nexus Foo". According to the benchmarking site, the Nexus Foo is a 10.3-inch device with a 1920x1080 display resolution, powered by a Tegra 4 clocked at 1.9GHz, and 2GB of RAM. You'll notice we haven't called this device a "tablet", because the GFXBench listing labels the device as having "no touchscreen".

In addition, the device has no rear camera, only one on the front. And, the Foo has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, but no accelerometer, barometer, GPS, compass, gyroscope, light sensor, NFC, or proximity sensor. Check the source link to see the full lisiting of the Nexus Foo.


Based on the features it has and doesn't, the Nexus Foo sounds more like a laptop than a tablet. But, the more strange thing is that the Foo is listed as running Android KKWT, which is the Android Wear build number; and, it is listed with OpenGL ES 2.0, which is more associated with Android Wear. Android phones and tablets running 4.3 or 4.4 use OpenGL 3.0, and Android L will be adding support for OpenGL 3.1.




HTC Nexus 8


We're still waiting for the HTC Nexus 8 to show itself, many rumors about it's release and features has been going around for months. Here's what we got so far. First we have a source claiming that the tablet, which has been referred to as Volantis or Flounder (Nexus 8) so far is codenamed T1, and will feature an 8 MP rear camera, alongside 1.6 MP front-facer. A little digging in the tablet's firmware has also returned the unsurprising fact that it will ship with Android L out of the box, without any HTC Sense overlay shenanigans.

Meanwhile, the Nexus 8 tablet might have already be doing the certification rounds in South Korea, as from the local FCC came this gem of an entry below, that depicts a device coded "0P8210000" to have passed certification. The back of this gear was shown about a month ago by @evleaks, marked Flounder. It carried the same letter and number sequence, and was claimed to be of the real Nexus 8.

The HTC-made Nexus tablet is expected to be a more premium device than Google's current Nexus 7 tablet, as we would expect from HTC. There should be a metal chassis wrapping an 8.9" 2560x1600 pixels display. The current leak also claims a 64-bit Tegra processor, paired with 4 GB of Elpida memory in 2x2 GB configuration will be in store, making it the first Android device taking true advantage of Android L's 64-bit backend.


A Qualcomm-made LTE modem will be in the models with cellular connectivity, and, as claimed above, an 8 MP rear camera, too. All this breathtaking goodness is unlikely to come as cheap as we've come to expect from the Nexus line, though. Google's poster slate is speculated to have a price tag north of $300, the Nexus 8 will likely be priced lower than that, perhaps in the $350 region.




LG Nexus 6


If Google is going to release a Nexus 6 this year, the one thing we know that it won't be made by LG. This is what LG Exec. from the Korean company seems to think. A Dutch publication has quoted Ken Hong, LG's global communications director, as saying that he doesn't know anything about an LG Nexus 6 yet.


Given past release time frames, if the new Nexus is to arrive this fall, then Hong should have been told about it by now.


Furthermore, recent rumors spoke about the Nexus program being discontinued altogether in favor of a broader Silver effort from Google. This would comprise of more devices per year (not just one as with the Nexus line), and from more than one manufacturer.At one point in the past LG was said to be making the first such "Android Silver" handset, though this was referred to as being the successor to the Nexus 6.

Nexus devices


Google released the Android 4.4.3 KitKat Factory Images for its Nexus devices, only Nexus device which are already have KitKat 4.4 (Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Nexus 4 and Nexus 5). These factory images allows users and developers to flash their nexus devices to test the New 4.4.3 update but it will wipe all the device's data. Google Play Edition device will follow very soon.


These files range from 440MB to 465MB and will require fastboot set up to install. The major change to the OS can be found in the dialer app, with new color accents and a card-based process for speed dialing. Other improvements include one related to CPU usage and the Nexus 5 camera. A previous update to Skype triggers heavy CPU usage when the camera app on the Nexus 5 is opened. This leads to a severe drain on the battery, and the inability of the user to actually use the snapper.


Head to the source link below to download your device's factory image and enjoy the Android 4.4.3 KitKat.
