The smartphone is currently been called Nexus 6 in the tech circle as it is the sixth Nexus smartphone. But one of the reasons for the change in name could be a potential trademark issue. In the book Do Androids dream of Electric Sheep? the Androids are called Nexus-6, and the family of author Philip K. Dick have threatened Google with a lawsuit.
