As we draw closer to the rumoured October 15 launch of the new Nexus smartphone, the first official-looking press render of the phone has appeared online. Shared by now-retired @evleaks, the render reveals a phone, which seems to be an enlarged version of the Moto X (2nd Gen) smartphone but with some subtle design tweaks.
It seems Google and Motorola have decided to ditch the metal frame (present in Moto X (2014)) and use a normal plastic frame in Nexus 6, but we can’t be certain until the official launch. No other new details are available at this point but we already know a lot about the phone like 5.9-inch Quad-HD display, Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, Android L and 13MP rear camera with OIS. The Nexus 6 will also reportedly come with 2MP front shooter and 3200 mAH battery.
In related news, a number of alleged Android promos have been leaked, one of which even shows something like Nexus 6 in use. The promo videos also carry a new slogan for Android – Be together. Not the same, which highlights the diversity and choice present in the Android ecosystem. It is likely that these promos will be officially released after the Android L and new Nexus devices launch.

I think they have retained the metal frame. Look at the black lines at the top and bottom of the device which are the antennae. They won’t have used it if the sides were made of plastic.
Android L should be called Laddoo
What if it is priced close to MotoX (Gen2) ?
