Much, much more likely Android 4.5 KitKat.

And the Nexus 8 (8.9" screen) tablet will showcase Android 5/L/4.5

http://www.brightsideofnews.com/2014...et-coming-htc/

Expected price $350+/-$50...

Google even let itself drag into this stupid 64-bit race! The 4GB RAM is at least a half-excuse.
I guess, one day you'll have to do it, why not start now...

NVidia looks to be making a comeback

So, it is likely going to be Android 5 and Nexus X will be the first device running it
http://www.phonearena.com/news/Nexus...on-5.0_id59778

Phablet category with 5.9" screen, 2K display, 500ppi, SD805/Adreno420, and all that...
http://www.phonearena.com/news/Moto-...erizon_id59425

Release around Halloween
http://www.phonearena.com/news/The-N...cement_id59726

It's understandable why not Nexus 6 - Harrison Ford leaves no Nexus 6 alive in Blade Runner...
Not clear why the AnTuTu benchmark is so low but that will be explained in time...

That is barely Nexus-line pricing. And the screen just 5.2"? Not 5.9"?

Is it going to be Android 5.0 Lion?

Regardless, it has nice specs!

Wake me up when it's no longer Java.

@99semaj, yes - getting off of Java would be the best thing for Android, but Google doesn't seem to be making any real efforts in that direction. If you want to do something as simple as create a Activity or a View, you need to make JNI calls into Java, even in Android "L" dev preview.

I've been holding out hope that Google would make their NDK better, but alas, that doesn't appear to be happening.
