google nexus 6 render evleaks wide

Generally known under his @evleaks alias, Evan Blass may have put his professional leaking days behind him, but that doesn’t mean he can’t do what he does best every once and a while.

According to the former pro leaker, the device below is the Nexus 6. We have no way of knowing it for sure, but judging from the image, as well as Blass’ track record, this may truly be our first look at Nexus 6 press render.

The image shows a device that’s very similar to the new Moto X, only in a larger form factor. The Nexus 6 has been rumored to feature a 5.9-inch Quad HD display.

Looking at the user interface, we can see new icons for the Play Store and the app drawer, as well as what seems to be a messaging app (not Hangouts). Another new element is the way Docs and other productivity apps, as well as Play Music, Play Movies and other apps, are grouped in their own folders, Create and Play, separate from the Google folder we typically see on default Android installations.

This image matches closely the mockup made by the folks at Android Police based on information from their sources, though with some differences. The wallpaper is different, and, if this image is authentic is may be the first time Google uses a photography, rather than an abstract design for the default wallpaper of a Nexus device.

Besides the unusual wallpaper, another problem is the slightly slanted speaker grill at the bottom. That’s not something we usually see in press renders.

With the Nexus 6, Nexus 9, and Android L rumored to launch later this week, we’ll find out soon how truthful @evleaks’ latest report is.
