Google Working On A Gigantic 5.9-inch Smartphone To Be Released In November:Report

Google working on 5.9-inch phablet with fingerprint sensor: Report

google_door_reutersGoogle may be working on a gigantic 5.9-inch smartphone to be released in November, according to a new report from Android Police. The company is apparently working with Motorola on the phablet, which will supposedly come with a fingerprint sensor and will launch with major US carriers.
It’s unclear what the device will be called, but Google and Motorola are said to be calling it ‘Shamu’ internally.

That size is unusually huge for a smartphone. It’s one inch shy from being the same size as most mini tablets, such as the Google Nexus 7. Samsung’s Galaxy Mega, which comes in both 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch screen sizes, and LG G Pro 2 are the only other phabletsthat compare in size. Most phablets fall into the 5.3-5.7-inch range.

An unnamed source reportedly shared this information with Android Police, and a tipster sent the website a screenshot from Google’s issue tracker for developers showing a clear reference to the device. The issue mentioned in the screenshot refers to a bug in Android L, Google’s upcoming version of Android that debuted at Google I/O.
