Motorola is prepping to launch a new range of devices.
The company, now owned by Lenovo, is reportedly working on the upcoming Nexus smartphone. Speculations claim that the smartphone is the same as the previously rumored Droid Turbo headed to Verizon.
Motorola is reportedly working on the next Nexus smartphone called "Shamu". Android Authority got ahold of alleged photos of the new Motorola handset codenamed "Motorola XT1254."
Leaked screenshots of the new smartphone appeared in CPU-Z, an application that collects information such as SoC functions, system information, battery details and sensors.
According to a leaked benchmark, the handset will be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC clocked at 2.65GHz paired with 3GB of RAM.
The XT1254 also known as the "Droid Turbo" is rumored to pack a 4.59-inch QHD screen display, specifically with 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution. Other features of the handset are Android 4.4.4 KitKa, a 20-megapixel rear camera, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
Motorola's "Shamu" is reported to aim mainly for U.S. consumers and will be available through major U.S. carriers. Markets with access to Nexus will be able to purchase the device. However, Motorola and Google have not revealed specific details about the smartphone's release date.
Motorola is also working on the new models of Droid, Droid Maxx, Moto S, and Moto X Play. The company has its hands full with a total of seven smartphones. The handsets will most likely target emerging markets like Asia.
On Sept. 4, Motorola will hold an event to launch the successor of Moto X called the Moto X+1 or Moto X2, next generation Moto G and Moto 360.
