With the larger iPhone 6 and the extra-large iPhone 6 Plus, Apple finally admitted that many consumers want larger smartphone options. At a respectable 5.5 inch screen size, the 6 Plus rivals existing large Android smartphones, also called "phablets" for "phone tablets." Click here to see a comparison of the latest phablets on the market.

Trying to prove that "if a little is good, more is better," Motorola's new Nexus phablet is poised to take the size wars to a whole new level. The Nexus 6, or possibly Nexus X, is going to have a 5.92-inch screen.

Just for comparison, Amazon recently released a new Fire tablet that's only 6 inches.

Other information circulating right now about the new Nexus is still just rumor at this point, but the new version should be fairly typical for power, storage size and battery life compared to current models. However, it will run the new Android L when it's released - click here for why Android L is such a big deal.
