The latest Nexus devices have been leaking like crazy as of late. We’ve already gotten a good look at some purported press images of the LG-made Nexus 5X and Huawei-made Nexus 6P, including a long list of specs for each device. But if you thought you’d have to wait until the official unveiling on October 29th to get another look at the new handsets, we have some good news for you. Someone has just leaked an official Google presentation for the Huawei Nexus 6P, giving us many more details on the upcoming higher-end Nexus device.
According to the slides, the Huawei Nexus 6P will feature a 5.7-inch WQHD display, a slim, metal unibody, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, dual front-facing speakers and a USB Type-C port. All of these specifications have been rumored for some time, so these shouldn’t come as a surprise. What hasn’t been rumored is the device’s battery size, which, according to the slides, will come in at 3450mAh. The 6P’s screen will also be made of Gorilla Glass 4. The device will also weigh a total of 178 grams, which is relatively light considering the Nexus 6P’s all-metal build. For comparison, the Motorola Nexus 6 weighs 184 grams.
The device will come in 32, 64 and 128GB variants and will be available in Aluminum, Graphite, Frost and Gold color options. The Gold option will be a Japan-exclusive for the time being.
Aside from the specs listed above, the slides aren’t really showing us any other new bits of information we haven’t heard in the past. One slide does talk about the 6P’s improved camera that will let in more light for better quality photos, as well as a faster Google Camera application that will let you capture photos much more quickly.
There are also some slides that detail some new features that will be available with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, including Google Now on Tap and the new Doze feature that will help save precious battery life.
We’re still not sure how much money this device will cost or when exactly it will be available, but we probably won’t need to wait much longer to find out.
Update: more specs revealed
This is likely the biggest Nexus 6P leak we have seen yet, and it just got even better. More specs and details have emerged after the leaked presentation reached Google Drive. We now have details on the camera, memory, display and more.
For starters, we know the phone will come with 3 GB of RAM, which may be lower than the current 4 GB standard, but happens to be enough to keep a high-end smartphone running smoothly. The handset is also said to have an AMOLED panel, which will provide those vibrant colors and deep blacks.
The upcoming Nexus device is also expected to measure in at 159.4 x 77.8 x 7.3 mm, which is similar to the Nexus 6 dimensions. It just happens to be slightly narrower and a bit thinner.
One of the more interesting bits of information is in the camera department, though, as the phone’s camera sensor is focusing mostly on quality than MP count. The Nexus 6P will have a 12.3 MP rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture. It uses 1.55 μM, a technology that allows more light to come through. Additionally, the 8 MP front shooter features a 1.4 μM design.
