Now, more leaks are surfacing around the Internet, increasing the likelihood that such a device will indeed be introduced very, very soon. Very recently, leaked images of the phablet have been circulating online.
One of these images is a picture tweeted by Evan Blass, an industry insider behind the notorious @EVleaks Twitter account. Even though Blass is retired, it is obvious he still has a lot of inside information. The image he tweeted appears to show the Nexus 6 device, which according to its homescreen clearly runs on Android L.
The device on the picture seems to have a blue-colored back cover. Those familiar with buying Motorola devices will likely expect that the Nexus 6's rear cover will be customizable, just like the Motorola Moto G or the latest Motorola Moto X.
The leaked images are not all. According to Android Police, it seems that the Nexus 6 has popped up on AT&T's website, suggesting the possibility that the device will be pushed by the carrier. A price is also shown, listing the device at $49.99. But wait -- on closer inspection, it appears that the image used on the site is actually that of the LG Vista phone. It is quite possible that the one found on AT&T's website is just a place holder for the real thing, which will likely be officially introduced in the coming few days or weeks. Which means that the $49.99 price tag may not be the genuine thing either. But still, the fact that AT&T is putting place holders for the Nexus 6 surely means the carrier will be selling the device in the near future, isn't it?
Which brings us to the subject of release dates. As of now, there is plenty of speculation. Earlier reports suggest sometime during the month of October. Other sources are claiming that the release date will likely be October 15th or October 16th. But if past year releases are to be referenced, October seems like a consistent month for Nexus unveilings. Indeed, some may recall that the Nexus 4 was introduced in October 2012, while the Nexus 5 was announced in October 2013. An October release for the Nexus 6 seems like a good bet.
What is certain now is that people will surely be watching out for the release of the Nexus 6, whenever that is. In the meantime, the world awaits.
