New Huawei Nexus 6 renders show off the device's rear-mounted fingerprint scanner
Although we haven’t heard any official details from anyone quite yet, it’s seeming more and more likely that we’ll get two Nexus devices from Google this year. LG and Huawei are the two manufacturers rumored to produce the hardware this time around, and we’ve already heard some pretty believable rumors about the two smartphones’ specifications and design qualities. On top of that, some renders that surfaced the other day, courtesy of popular leaker @OnLeaks, gave us a glimpse at what the upcoming LG Nexus may look like.
Today it looks like we’re getting another set of renders from the same sources, this time of the rumored Huawei Nexus device. In the leak, the smartphone is referred to as the “Huawei Nexus 6 2015”. The renders shown off in this post are based on detailed blueprints of the device sent out to third-party accessory manufacturers, so the dimensions might be accurate, but the overall design will probably be a little different.
As you can see in the video and images attached to this post, the Huawei Nexus 6 looks to feature the same rear-mounted fingerprint scanner as the one found in the LG Nexus. The renders also show off a device that features a 5.7-inch screen, though the leak explains Huawei may be testing two different screen sizes – 5.7-inches and 5.5-inches – either of which may end up coming to market.
The leak also explains the device will measure 159.4 x 78.3 x 6.6/8.5mm, which backs up previous claims of the device’s measurements. We can also see from the renders that the device will sport a USB Type-C port, which shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Just a few days ago, @OnLeaks outed some specs for both the Huawei and LG devices, claiming that the upcoming Huawei Nexus could feature a 5.7-inch display and an all-metal body. The LG Nexus, on the other hand, is rumored to boast a 5.2-inch display and measure 146.9 x 72.9 x 8/9.8mm. Both devices will supposedly come with front-facing speakers and USB Type-C ports.
Since we can’t vouch for the validity of these supposed renders or specs, be sure to take this information with a grain of salt. But seeing as how new Nexus devices are normally launched towards the end of October, we should begin to see some more leaked models and renders show up sometime soon.
