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.

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.

Google’s upcoming phablet to be called “Nexus 6P?”

Past rumours have revealed that Google will be introducing two new Nexus devices, a smartphone and a phablet, this year. We’ve learned that the smartphone will be called the “LG Nexus 5X,” but what about the phablet? A new report is claiming to know what the Huawei-made device will be called.

Huawei Nexus 6P?

huawei-nexus

The report comes from Droid Life. It reports that the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015), a name dubbed by the press, will be unveiled as the “Huawei Nexus 6P.” The site notes that the name is still subject to change, but it reckons that “Nexus 6P” will be the device’s final name. It also reaffirms that the smartphone’s name will be the “LG Nexus 5X.”

To refresh your memory about the Huawei Nexus 6P, previous reports have revealed that the device is known internally as the “Angler” (codename). We’ve also learned that the phablet is rumoured to sport a 5.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). It is also said to measure 159.4 x 78.3 x 6.6 / 8.5 mm, which would mean that the device would be slim, but wouldn’t be bulky either.

As for its processor, it is said to come with 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 under the hood. We’re hoping Huawei has resolved the Snapdragon 810’s overheating issues, since the CPU did cause problems for HTC One M9 and Sony XPERIA Z3 Plus owners.

32 GB of internal storage is said to be on board, but the device is not likely to come with a microSD card slot, as the Motorola-made Nexus 6 did not come with the feature.

Its camera combo is said to consist of a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera.

The Huawei Nexus 6P is expected to run Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) out of the box.

Both the Nexus 6P phablet and the Nexus 5X smartphone are expected to come with a fingerprint scanner found on the back.

So when will Google lift the lid on the Nexus 6P and the Nexus 5X? According to past reports, the Search giant will be hosting a press event on the 29th of September, where it is expected to officially announce the two new Nexus device. The new Nexus devices are said to be available via the Google Play Store starting on the 13th of October.

Huawei Nexus 6 (2015) specifications seemingly confirmed by GFXBench

The Huawei Nexus 6 (2015) has been making rounds around the rumour mill as of late, and now the device has made an appearance in the GFXBench benchmark database.

Specs confirmed?

Huawei-Nexus-specs

The GFXBench listing doesn’t mention the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015), but it is listed under the device’s codename, which is “Huawei Angler.”

Now lets get to the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015)’s leaked specs. According to the listing, the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015) sports a 5.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). This confirms what we’ve been hearing from past reports. We’ve also learned from past leaks that the said device will measure 159.4 x 78.3 x 6.6 / 8.5 mm, which indicates that the phablet will not be slim, but not be bulky either.

The listing reveals that the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015) will come with 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, under the hood coupled with 3 GB of RAM.

The listing also reveals that the phablet offers 24 GB available internal storage. This suggests that the device will come with a total of 32 GB of on internal storage. The listing did not mention whether or not the device would come with a microSD card slot, but, since 2014’s Motorola Nexus 6 did not come with the feature, we’re not exactly confident that this year’s Nexus 6 will either.

The listing reveals that the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015)’s camera combo consists of a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera that will be perfect for snapping selfies.

Here’s something new. According to the listing, the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015) will come with a barometer, meaning the device can take advantage of apps or features that measure atmospheric pressure.

The last piece of information the listing has to reveal is the version of Android pre-installed in the Huawei Nexus (2015). It is listed running Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) out of the box. This isn’t at all surprising, since new Nexus devices are always the first devices to run a new version of Android.

We have also learned that the Nexus phablet will sport a fingerprint scanner on the rear case, but the GFXBench listing does not mention this.

So when will Google lift the lid on the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015)? Google will be hosting a press event on the 29th of September. We’re expecting the search giant to officially announce the device at the event alongside the 5.2-inch LG Nexus 5X. We may also see a new Nexus tablet (Nexus 8) make its official debut at the event, but it remains a mystery which manufacturer is behind the rumoured tablet.

According to past reports, the two new new Nexus device will ship to people who pre-ordered the phablet on the 13th of October.

LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6 (2015) to be put up for pre-order on Oct 13

We’ve learned from previous reports that Google will be lifting the lid on two new Nexus devices on the 29th of September. These include the Nexus 5X made by LG and the Nexus 6 (2015) made by Huawei. Now that we know when the search giant is planning to officially unveil the two devices, the question is, when will they be available for pre-order? According to a new report, they will be put up for pre-order on October.

Pre-order on the 13th of October

The new rumour comes to us courtesy of TalkAndroid. According to the report, the LG Nexus 5X smartphone and the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015) phablet will be available for pre-order on the 13th of October, which is two weeks after the device’s official announcement.

To recap, the LG Nexus 5X smartphone’s rumoured specs include a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). Under the hood is expected to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core processor with four ARM Cortex-A53, two ARM Cortex-A57 cores, and an Adreno 418 GPU, coupled with 3 GB of RAM. In the camera department, the device is said to come with a 13-megapixel with OIS and 5-megapixel camera combo.

As for the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015), it is said to come with a 5.5-inch or a 5.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). Under the hood is expected 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. There are reports that claim that the Google and Huawei are planning to swap the Snapdragon 810 for the Snapdragon 820, but we’re not sure if this is accurate since the later will not be available until the first quarter of 2016. Moving forward, other rumoured specs include 64 GB of internal storage and a 3,500 mAh battery to keep the device going for a long time.

Both device are expected to run Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) out of the box. Like every other Nexus device, no custom UI like Samsung’s TouchWiz or HTC’s Sense will be slapped on top of Android. Both are also expected to come with a fingerprint scanner found on the back of the devices. If ever the two make their official debut on the 29th of September, this is the first time Google unveils two Nexus smartphones at the same in one year.

Of course, since this is anything but official, take this with a pinch of salt.
