We’ve seen a number of Nexus 6 mockups so far, and even some blurry shots of the device out in the wild, but none of them do the device’s gorgeous new design justice like its first leaked press render does.

Published today by the ever-reliable (and now retired!) @evleaks, this press render gives us our first real look at the Nexus 6 ahead of its rumored debut this month. And boy, does it look good. The handset’s giant 5.9-inch display means its bezels are nice and slim, and with this particular model sporting a blue shell, it seems it could be available in a number of colors.

The Nexus 6 is actually being built by Motorola, so customers may be given the opportunity to customize the device — or at least choose the color of its back panel — like they do when purchasing a Moto X.

Recent rumors have claimed that in addition to its 5.9-inch Quad HD display, the device will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, Adreno 420 graphics, and 3GB of RAM. It’s also expected to feature a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and front-facing stereo speakers.

The Nexus 6 will also be one of the first devices to run Android L, and it’s likely to launch alongside the new Nexus 9 tablet, which is being built by HTC. Sources have claimed that the device will be unveiled this week, but with no event confirmed by Google, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the search giant issuing a surprise press release instead.

Excited yet?
