Google and Motorola are readying their latest smartphone, the Nexus 6, and the device should be about to arrive on October 17th. However, if you are familiar with previous Nexus smartphone releases you will remember that they like to be spotted out in the wild pre-launch. I am not sure if this is a deliberate tactic by Google, but it has happened again.

The image you can see above is of a previously unseen Motorola device that tallies up to every leak we have seen of the Nexus 6. This is almost certainly the Nexus 6 being used out in the wild, presumably by a Motorola or Google employee. There have been several leaks and renders of the Nexus 6 recently, but this is the first look at the hardware itself.

The Nexus 6 is reported to be the most advanced smartphone Google and indeed Motorola have made yet. It will have a 5.92-inch Quad HD screen, pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 with 3GB of RAM, and will of course run stock Android. The handset will be the first to boast Google's new OS, Android L and is likely to arrive later this month at the company's event to launch that software.
