Nexus X (Nexus 6) set to be released by end of October

We’ve been calling it the Nexus 6 for a while, but apparently, its final name will not be that at all. Although there is still no final name for the upcoming new Nexus device, at least internally, Motorola will be calling it the Nexus X.

With the experimental Google Workshop, the company may be trying to break into that market a little bit more.
