With just hours left before the speculated Nexus 6 launch (15/16 October), a Google Android animation advertisement has surfaced online inciting excitement among Android fans.
A Google Plus user going by the name Cristian Colocho, while watching a commercial break on AMCs site for the new episode of "The Walking Dead" drama series online, came across a Google Android's animated ad, revealing the unnamed smartphone, understood to be the upcoming Nexus 6.
The Android ad (Courtesy, Android Authority) opens up with a group of people standing at a bus stop and suddenly a phone rings, and everybody checks their pockets to look if their phone is ringing and finally a short guy with geeky spectacle takes out mammoth phone, with an uncanny resemblance to the recently released ergonomic Moto X (Gen 2.) design.
The exaggeration of a giant phone in the Android ad has led many to believe that the device is Google Nexus 6 aka Motorola Nexus X. Even the leaked pictures twirling in the web look similar to the phone in the video.
The animation video ends with a couple of phrases- "all kinds of phones for all kinds of folks" and – "android be together. Not the same", hinting that Google, which has already made strides in the smartphones segment (Nexus one to Nexus 5), is set to bring pure Android experience into phablet enthusiasts.

In another video, Google has shown a glimpse of the upcoming HTC Nexus 9 (codenamed Volantis). The video begins with a bus driver shaking his head to the loud music and passengers are seen enjoying the music as well. Among the crowd, a guy with blonde beard is shown holding a tablet, a bit larger than the 7.0-inch Nexus series slate.
