A photo of the Nexus 6 may have been leaked. 

Twitter leaker EMTLeaks posted a photo of what is supposedly the upcoming Nexus 6, which is also known as the Nexus X or Moto S. 

The Nexus X could have either a 5.3-inch or 6.3-inch 2K display resolution, a 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 with an Adreno 420 GPU, and has a 13 mega-pixel rear camera and a 2.1 mega-pixel front camera, and run on Google Android Lemon Meringue Pie 5.0.

Verizon and Sprint will carry the phone in the United States, and Best Buy should be retailing it for $499.99.

The Nexus 6 could be unveiled at a secret Google launch event on or around the Halloween period in 2014, which means that the phone could be launched in October or November.
