Here we go folks. This is what you’ve all been wanting, wondering about, and asking for since Google purchased Motorola back in 2011. A Moto Nexus smartphone! There’s been a lot of speculation that LG will once again make the next Nexus, but a new rumor this afternoon claims it will indeed finally be Motorola’s turn.

In case you haven’t been following the recent Moto X smartphone news. We knew basically everything and then some about the device well in advance before the event on August 1st. Why? Because most of the rumors and tips out of one Taylor Wimberly (formerly with AndroidandMe) were correct. He has an inside scoop on anything and everything Motorola. Nearly every report, tip, and rumor he mentioned ended up being accurate.

Well, this afternoon Taylor just dropped a bomb over on Google+ and confirms that Motorola is working on a Nexus smartphone. The rumor doesn’t have any details to go along with it, but this alone should have many of you excited. He goes as far as to mention this will NOT be the Moto X (as in not a Moto X Google Play edition) and indeed will be a Nexus smartphone. It looks like the Nexus 5 might not be made by LG after all. Here’s his exact words:

“Motorola will release a Nexus smartphone in Q4 (that is not the Moto X).

Yup, that’s it! Very short and to the point, and just enough to pique our interest and leave us waiting for more. Ever since Google purchased Motorola we’ve been wondering when we’d see them make a Nexus, not to mention it only makes sense. We’ve seen one from HTC, Samsung, and LG, so why not let Moto have their turn.
