More pictures of Motorola's 'Shamu' Nexus 6 hit the web

Up until last week, information on Motorola's rumoured Nexus 6 handset hadn't been forthcoming. Then we got a surge of rumoured specs and our first glimpse at the hardware.

Now a new image has surfaced, supposedly showing a working version of the Nexus 6 displaying Android's 'About phone screen'.

The image seems to back up previous rumours of a 5.92-inch QHD screen thanks to the spaced-out placement of the navigation keys. But apart from a possiblity of rounded corners - another Shamu hint - it's difficult to make out much more from the photo.

Kernel of truth

Motorola's Shamu Nexus 6 is reported to have received an updated kernel built by Google and, according to Android Police, the kernel version pictured in the leaked image is two months newer than the last version seen in previous leaks.

The takeaway from that is this is very much likely to be a straight Android Nexus device, rather than an additional handset from Motorola with some tweaks to the OS.

Of course, we won't know for sure until Moto decides to pull back the curtain - something that's rumoured to be happening on October 15/16.
