Google's answer to the upcoming Apple iPhone 6 could be made by Motorola claim latest leaks, while earlier rumors mentioned LG as the company chosen to manufacture the device.

After Google denied rumors that claimed they have plans to discontinue the notorious Nexus range, recent leaks reveal that Motorola is already working on a 5.9-inch Nexus phablet. While nothing is official yet, it looks like Google's competitor for the iPhone 6 will launch this fall.

According to the latest rumors, HTC is working on a 9-inch Nexus tablet, codenamed Volantis, while Motorola's Shamu is a smaller device and both will launch this fall loaded with Android L. Only bits of information about the specs of the device are available at this time, as it only known that the Nexus 6/Motorola Shamu will feature a fingerprint sensor and its screen size will be close to 6 inches.

Since Google already mentioned they will not kill the Nexus family, remains to see when will they reveal more about these upcoming devices. Unfortunately, there is still plenty of time until November, when both Volantis and Shamu are expected to hit the market, probably during the Android L launch event or soon after it. We will keep you posted as more info becomes available.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
