In the past few weeks, we’ve been coming across a number of leaks involving the unannounced Huawei-made Nexus 6P, Google’s next Nexus phablet. Now, alleged press renders of the device have surfaced online, which give us a sneak peek on the front and back of the device.
Android Police, a site who has been actively leaking information on the two yet to be announced Nexus devices, is responsible for leaking the renders you see above. Apart from revealing the design of the front and back of the phablet, the renders also show that the device will sport speakers found on the top and bottom of the screen. The render that shows the back of the device shows the fingerprint scanner and the camera and LED flash located within a black bar.
Rumoured specs include a 5.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). Storage options are said to include 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB versions. In the photography department, the phablet is expected to come with a 13-megapixel rear-facing and an 8-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera combo. Under the hood is said to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2 GHz, four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, and an Adreno 430 GPU, coupled with 3 GB of RAM. It is said to measure 159.4 x 78.3 x 6.6 / 8.5 mm. Like previous Nexus devices, the Nexus 6P will run the latest version of Android. In this case, Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) with no custom UI slapped on top.
So when do we get to see the phablet in the flesh? Google has announced that it will be holding a media event on the 29th of September. There, we are expecting to see the Huawei Nexus 6P phablet to make its official debut. The unannounced LG Nexus 5X is also expected to make its official debut at the event. We’ve learned from previous rumours that the two Nexus devices will be put up for pre-order on Google Play on the 13th of October. Pricing is yet to be determined.
