Google is set to launch the Nexus 6 smartphone today at a media event that will also see the Nexus 9 tablet and Android L full release roll out. As you may know, there have been numerous leaks around the Motorola built Nexus 6, so many in fact that Google will have to pull a rabbit out of a hat to really surprise us today. With that in mind, we thought we would hand you one more parting gift before the official launch, a clear image of the Nexus 6.Evan Blass, the now retired man we all knew as @Evleaks has posted an image of the Nexus 6 ahead of its launch and it is clear to see that it has plenty of the Motorola design language about it. However, this looks Nexus too with its blank almost expressionless design, while it also appears to have a blue rear plate. The 5.9-inch screen is on in the image and appears to be running Android L. Of course version 5.0 of Google's mobile platform will land today too and this image shows the simple lock screen design of the UI. The Nexus 6 will arrive with a 5.9-inch display with 2392 x 1440 resolution (that's likely 2560 x 1440 when taking into account the phone's navigation buttons), 2.65GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, Adreno 420GPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and run Android 5.0 (which is thought to be the build number of Android L, or Lollipop as it is set to be named).
