The rumor mill has been telling us for a while now that we’ll see two Nexus phones in 2015, one from LG and one from Huawei. Today it’s continuing to push that claim by producing a video that shows an alleged render of the Huawei Nexus, one day after a similar video showing the LG Nexus emerged.
The Huawei Nexus render shown in the video is based off of device schematics given to accessory makers, and so the colors and materials shown are speculation. However, the source of the leak suggests that Huawei’s phone will have a full metal construction, which ought to give it a nice premium feel.
Meanwhile, we can see that the Huawei Nexus in this clip has front-firing speakers, a rear fingerprint reader, a USB Type-C port on its bottom, and a headphone jack up top. It’s said that Huawei is testing 5.5 and 5.7-inch screens with this phone, but past reports have suggested that a 5.7-inch screen will be used, and that seems the more likely choice because a 5.5-inch display would be awfully close to the 5.2-inch screen that the LG Nexus 5 2015 is allegedly going to use.
Finally, this Huawei device is said to measure 159.4mm tall, 78.3mm wide, 6.6mm at its thinnest point, and 8.5mm at its thickest point.
Huawei hasn’t yet participated in Google’s Nexus program, but this upcoming Nexus phone could make for a good first effort if it turns out anything like today’s leak. What do you think of the device shown in this leaked render? Will you be interested in the Huawei Nexus if the rumors turn into reality?
