Huawei Nexus in-hand pictures leaked

huawei-nexus-1

Just a short time ago we got our first in-hand look at the LG Nexus 5 (2015). Today some similar pictures have surfaced on Google+ showing the Huawei Nexus in all its glory. The leaks this time are quite extensive. Pictures include details showing the front, back, and bottom of the device. We can clearly see that the Huawei Nexus appears to have a matte white casing, that could perhaps be made of metal. To me it seems a bit unlikely that the either Nexus device will feature a metal frame, but stranger things have happened. . Perhaps Google wants to distinguish the two devices in more categories than screen size alone. We can also notice the fingerprint scanner on the back, similar to the LG Nexus.  The camera module is also rather large, taking up the entire top portion of the smartphone.

The boot screen pictured seems to confirm the codename of “Angler” for the Huawei Nexus, a rumor that started this past May. We also see specs listed that include the Snapdragon 810, 3 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of storage. Perhaps Huawei and Google will even make 64 GB of storage standard on this device. Probably not, but we can dream. The device is still rumored to carry a large 5.7″ display, while the LG Nexus will carry a slightly smaller 5.2″ screen. Overall the device shape looks incredibly interesting, definitely not your typical rectangular slab of a smartphone. I’m incredibly excited to see what Huawei can bring to the Nexus line after trying out their P8 Lite earlier this year. Anyone else looking to pick up  the Huawei Nexus this fall?

"I am currently a researcher and Adjunct Professor at Arizona State University and Grand Canyon University. I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
