I love the form factor of the X. I love the design and the concept. I only need four more things from the nexus phone:

1. good camera (Moto X pictures have not impressed me)
2. wireless charging
3. freedom to choose carrier - any time taking my phone with me 
4. reasonable price - I am willing to pay a premium (REASONABLE) but I get to keep and control where I use the phone and who provides the data services for that phone. 

I am just so tired of being owned by the carrier.

This is like when the moto X rumours first started.

Anyway, make mine an X10 (actually I really don't mind dual core X8 either, as long as it has the voice chip), good camera, industrial design, and most importantly NOT A PHABLET, I REPEAT NOT A PHABLET! Hope it's like whoever posted with the new N4 being Moto while N5 is LG.

Also, I can really see the Google Now/Siri type thing from the Moto X/new DROIDs (is this a Google or a Moto thing with the voice control actually controlling phone features like Siri instead of just search?) and Active Notification lockscreen being in 5.0, Moto X may be a testing ground and if successful, may be in AOSP?

And maybe some customisability, if possible? :)

People that say no Verizon make me laugh. Why wouldn't you want it on as many carriers as possible? If you're not on verizon it wouldnt affect you anyway. Quit acting like a little whiny girl for something that wouldn't deal with you anyway. Not to mention it would still be open and unlocked even if Verizon slowed updates +2
Ian Thomas11 months ago
+Chris Koch I would imagine from a manufactures stand point making a device that can be sold on one carrier in one country compared to making a device that can be sold on the majority of carriers world wide might make it a bit obvious of why building a Verizon specific device does not make much financial sense anymore. Also, ask some Galaxy Nexus owners if they will ever buy another Verizon Nexus. I would imagine all they can respond with is a sad face and a small sentence under their breath related to six month delays in updates.

Do I care if they release it to Verizon, nope. But do I expect them to? No. Its a small, extremely competitive market and the added cost of hardware, certifications, and minimum production numbers has got to make it pretty difficult to make money.

It is going to be a long wait until the end of the year. I can't wait to see how these offerings unfold. So far the race for me is between the Moto X and the Nexus 5. I am more than happy to give Motorola a chance and I really hope this rumor pans out. The only way it's a downer is if the off contract price is too high or the Nexus 5 is not available on Verizon.
Reza Samahin11 months ago
+Taylor Wimberly by using the word 'a' are you implying more than one Nexus phone in the fall? Perhaps a low end model from Motorola say less than $200 and a high end successor to the N4? This would go well with the Apple rumors of a low end and high end model. As well, there were some rumors of key lime pie being optimised for ultra low end handsets.

+Derek Traini That response vague and was a refutation of another response.  Please, not Motorola. The Nexus 5 better 5.0" - 5.2", 1080p, quad core -- not like the colored case, dual core, 720p, sub-5" junk Moto just released.

What happened to the Nexus 5 prototype LG showed Google CEO back in May? I still don't believe Moto is making this. LG had a dual development plan for G2 and Nexus 5 -- specs were confirmed by South Korean newspaper Daum.

Don't screw this up, Google. I'll buy an unlocked Sony Xperia ZL C6506 (quad core, 5", HSPA+ pentaband, multiple LTE bands) in a heartbeat. I'm waiting on the Nexus 5, but I have a backup plan...

+Charles Matthews look again the Nexus phones were never the top specd phones. In addition many folks do not want another 5"+ battery sucking phone with more power than you will ever need.

The Nexus line is a developer reference phone to show off the OS not the power of the hardware. It makes sense that it should not be the highest spec phone because not all Android phones have huge screens and quad core processors.

Highly unlikely Google will release another Verizon Nexus, seeing as the last one (the Galaxy Nexus) tarnished the Nexus name because Verizon locked it down and made it shitty.

+rhy o'drinnan I doubt that Google will ever support a phone with an SD slot again. They will always push for you to store data in the cloud. They can learn more about you with your data in the cloud easier than they can with the data on the SD card. A small amount of device based memory to handle apps and buffer data in use but storage will be done off site. Not a bad thing as you have cross device access and access at all time even after a phone upgrade.+3

It wasn't a year ago (or maybe it was, I can't tell anymore) that rumors were flying around that Google was going to start releasing multiple Nexus devices from different manufacturers. While I would say that the Google Edition phones are essentially the same thing, I wonder why both LG and Motorola couldn't manufacture Nexus phones?

I don't know that that's the case and speculation from me is worth less than nothing, but two low-cost Nexus-branded phones isn't anything that I would be against.

+Christopher Li-Reid CyanogenMod slow, laggy, and buggy? I've never had that experience with a CM ROM, unless it was an early beta (and in that case, it's to be expected). I have CM 10.2 (Android 4.3) running on my S4 right now and it works phenomenally well.+1

I think a lot of you are missing the fact that with Verizon's moving to 100% 4G LTE with their phones having true 4G instead of a hybrid chip of 4G/3G, Verizon will be on GSM technology and fully governed by their block spectrum agreement. LTE is the evolution of GSM/UMTS standard not CDMA and is being recognized as the first global wireless technology.

So there is a big possibility that a Nexus could come back to the Verizon network considering it's plans to push VOLTE phones at the end of this year.

I dont think you caught my point there. There was never going to be multiple 'Nexus' devices. The rumor was Multiple Nexus because someone heard about the multiple Google Edition phones and described it wrong. After that the details got thin as the rumor passed from person to person.

But that rumor did come true. Its very easy to see how someone could find out that there would be a Nexus 7, Nexus 10 Nexus 4 and a GE S4 and GE HTC1 that all have timely updates and describe it as '5 Nexus devices'.

The recently released moto x while certianly very nice is a mid tier phone but priced high if a nexus is made would it be with higher stats but same price point of the moto x?  seems unlikely .....whats more likely is that they will try to do abest bang for your buck type smartphone which means compromises. that would be disappointing to me.  i woud love a top end nexus fully specced out comparable to say the G2 and im willing to pay ~ 600 for that. Expecting google to subsiize the cost of a high end pone isnt realistic

So far I'm more thinking of getting the s4 and romming that as my least worst scenario. But the moto x is really really intruiging to me. The g2 is slightly behind. Now trying to figure out Google is a fools game. Look at the chromebook laptop. All the time they were churning out low spec machines and without warning they release the high end pixel chromebook. So who knows really. I admit a top end nexus is a low probability event

I can't wait, as soon as this cones out im switching to T-mobile and I expected Motorola to make it, Google owns the company, why outsource? And the specs better kill the Moto X's specs
Andre Harvey10 months ago
+Travis Dobynes what would you be willing to pay for that? I'm reminded of Google experience devices that everyone was clamoring for until they got it. And them silence. Now we all want 3g ram 64g space with removable battery n SD cards phonesb built out of adamantium n 4k resolution screen

+Andre Harvey so you're saying that each Nexus phone hasn't been better than the last?

Just put out a proper international Droid Maxx Google Play Edition and we're all set.

+Travis Dobynes yes each nexus has been better than the last but is that a factor of the passage of time rather than a changing philosophy. in other words the nexus was originally intended to be a developer phone and as such was never intended to be cutting edge technology. Now of course we all want it to be but even last year while the nexus 4 was an awesome phone at an awesome price . it didnt represent cutting edge tech. couple that with the fact that moto/google has expressed skepticism at the 5' and 1080p form factor and instead want to focus on user experience and you have a a new nexus phone thatt may not be cutting edge in terms of spec. For me personally if they can do the Moto X in full HD amoled and improve the camera, then i would buy. Removable battery, expandable memory, etc im willing to compromise on
im excited to see what the nexus 5 turns out to be.
I may return mytouchwiz galaxy s4

+Andre Harvey u have a point about "the passage of time", but I agree that I'm really just looking for what the Moto X is lacking. With a lk the hype that surrounded it, I was slightly dissapointed with some of the specs. Im just really hoping the Nexus 5 will outshine it with tech instead of features.+1
Andre Harvey10 months ago
+Travis Dobynes  are you willing to pay top tier phone price though?
For example if the nexus X (+Romolo Peterson  nice!!!!) isnt subsidized thats what it would end up costing.
the moto maker is really cool by the way. i like the aspect of customizing the colors on your phone a lot
the more i think of it the more i think that this phone will end up sending ripples through the industry.

Please tell Moto and Google not to make a 5" display. It's too big and so inconvenient. And please feature Nexus 5 with android 5.0, better camera, better storage, better battery and better performance than iphone and that brick s4.

I hope so, I'm in uk and was going to get nexus 4 but lack of sd storage was a no no, considering a Samsung s4 google play edition but will wait to see what happens with nexus 5 launch/specs+1
Coming on Google Play(sim-unlocked) ??

 I think we are all tired of being owned by the carrier, but here we are - using unregulated mega-manopolies, our wallets are open. With all the latest Moto phones all-band, the Mo-Nexus might even be carrier agnostic! Probably some technical detail that prevents it...(under-breath "bahstids")

I wonder if this was was really just a moto x google edition and not "the nexus."

Wimberly's original post is "Motorola will release a Nexus smartphone in Q4 (that is not the Moto X)." I, for one, trust him on that.

+Kenton Douglas actually Motorola just announced one hundred dollars off the phone if you trade in a qualifying phone. He wasn't entirely off.

Waiting to see if it is made for Verizon (LTE). It sucks a lot of good phones go to sub par companies!!!!Tried AT&T and T-Mobile but Verizon works best in my area, near Worcester, Mass. Don't disappoint us Verizon people!!

I rad some different story on
LTE is going to be soon available in Europe, I hope it will support LTE...Also I hope the camera is FULL HD...

Motorola will make the New Nexus 4, LG will make the Nexus 5.

Okay. Well Sony is going to make the Nexus 6.

Is this rumor still in play?  If so, I hope that this is announced (or at least strongly teased) before the LG Nexus 5 becomes available.  Otherwise, tons of people including myself will buy the LG model on day 1.  Announcing the Motorola model a month after that would be a lot worse for the sales numbers, compared to announcing it a week or so before the LG model becomes available.

Can you update us on this? Does your source say this is still going to happen? Been holding out for a new phone for a while waiting for this. +Taylor Wimberly +1

+Bradley Blackburn Nothing new to share. Clues point to Moto G/DVX, but it could be something else. Should know soon.
