2nd video proves Huawei Nexus 6P easily bends

YouTube channel JerryRigEverything revealed in an earlier video that the Huawei Nexus 6P’s Gorilla Glass 4-protected screen could be easily scratched. The host also revealed that your baby sister could easily bend the device. Critics, however, were quick to point out that scratching the screen would make it easier to bend the phablet. Some even said that the bend test was rigged. In response to the criticism, Jerry posted a new video on a brand new unit of the Nexus 6P, which showed exactly the same thing.

Bend with ease

In this new video, Jerry performs a bend test on a brand new Huawei Nexus 6P, which he takes out of the box. According to the YouTuber, the phablet has “three fatal structural flaws” in its design. The first can be found on the bottom of the device where an aluminium mid-frame is supposed to make the Nexus 6P harder to bend. How is it flawed? Only a thin film of glass and plastic dovetail joints hold the frame in place.

The second flaw is the thin sidewalls used on the rear aluminum back.

The third flaw is in the area near the power button. Inside the device, this is where the ends of battery and motherboard can be found. It also makes the area a perfect place to make a bend.

So what’s the major difference between this video and the first video? In the first video, the glass was scratched. In this second video, the screen was left alone. Despite not scratching the glass, it still took little effort to bend the Nexus 6P.

Here’s the video:

Aside from proving that you don’t need to scratch the screen of Huawei Nexus 6P to easily bend it and that Jerry did not perform a bend test on the device in his first video, it also proves that Jerry did not rig the test just to grab attention from viewers.

Although the test has proven that there are flaws in the Nexus 6P’s structure, it is still a good device. Just make sure you don’t drop it, scratch it, or bend it in half. So putting it in your back pocket is out of the question.

Nexus 6P officially unveiled

Google recently hosted it annual media event where it launches the latest version of Android, in this case Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). Traditionally, the latest version of Android is featured on a new Nexus device. For the first time, Google introduced two new Nexus devices. One of which is the Huawei-made Nexus 6P.

Design

The Nexus 6P offers a premium look and feel, since it is clad in aircraft-grade aluminium. It is a mere 7.3 mm-thin (159.3 x 77.8 x 7.3 mm), which isn’t bad at all, considering the device comes with a massive 3,450 mAh battery. Sadly, this battery is non-removable. The device also does not support wireless charging.

Colour options include white, aluminium, and graphite. A rose gold version is also available, but you’d have to fly all the way to Japan just to get your hands on one. It weighs in at 178 g.

Other features include a reversible Micro USB Type-C connector found on the bottom of the device, an RGB light the lights up when important notifications are received, and front-facing stereo speakers.

Also found on the back of the device is a fingerprint scanner. A number of high-end devices come with fingerprint readers, but this scanner no longer requires you to unlock the screen and then unlock the device. To unlock the phablet, all you have to do is tap the fingerprint scanner once.

5.7-inch Quad HD screen

The Nexus 6P rocks a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). This works out to a pixel density of 518 ppi. To prevent scratches and cracks, the screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 4. 5.7 inches may be too big, but the device is the same size as Apple iPhone 6S Plus, but offers a larger screen.

Processor and internal storage

The Nexus 6P packs Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor with cores clocked up to 2 GHz. True, the CPU was subject to a scandal, since it has a tendency to overheat, but the hardware version used is version 2.1, which is said to offer better heat management. The Adreno 430 GPU is on board to handle graphics.

The Nexus 6P will be available in 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB storage options. The phablet doesn’t come with microSD support.

Camera

The Nexus 6P sports a 12.3-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture and IR lasers assist with focusing. The Sony sensor comes with large 1.55-micron pixels, which is larger compared to the 1.12 – 1.22-micron pixels used on most smartphone cameras. This makes the camera ideal for snapping high-equality photos in even the poorest light conditions. It also comes with dual LED flash. The only downside is that it does not comes with OIS, which is strange since its predecessor the Motorola-made Nexus 6 comes with the feature.

As for its front-facing camera, the Nexus 6P comes with a massive 8-megapixel snapper with 1.4-micron pixels and an f/2.4 aperture. Normally, high-end devices only come with 5-megapixel front-facing cameras.

The Nexus 6P can also record 4K videos at 30 fps. Slow motion videos can be recorded at 240 fps, which is 8 times slower than real life.

Price and release date

The Nexus 6P has been put up for pre-order on Google Play. The 32 GB version will cost £449, the 64 GB version £499, and the 128 GB will set you back £579. The device will ship later this October, but when exactly this months remains a mystery.

Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P monikers confirmed by leaked packaging?

We’ve learned that Google will be lifting the lid on the LG-made Nexus 5X smartphone and the Huawei-made Nexus 6P phablet on the 29th of September (less than a week away), but haven’t really come across proof showing the devices’ real names, until now. If the devices’ leaked packaging is to be believed, it would seem that “Nexus 5X” and “Nexus 6P” will be their final monikers.

Boxes dub thee “Nexus 5X” and “Nexus 6P”

A reliable source sent the images of the boxes to Android Police. Two boxes are shown (see above). One shows the “5X” name, while the other shows “6P.” Apart from confirming the Nexus devices’ names, the boxes also confirm that the two will be available in 32 GB versions. Past rumours have revealed that the Nexus 5X will be available in 16 GB and 32 GB versions, while the Nexus 6P will be available in 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB versions.

Previously leaked specs

Previous rumours reveal that the LG Nexus 5X will sport a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (Full HD). Its camera combo is said to consist of a 13-megapixel rear-facing with OIS (optical image stabilisation) and a 5-megapixel selfie-centric front-facing camera combo. Under the hood is said 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 2 GB of RAM. It is said to come with a 2,700 mAh battery. It is said to support Cat. 6 4G LTE connectivity. A fingerprint scanner is said to be found on the back of the device.

As for the Huawei Nexus 6P, it is said to sport a 5.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). Its camera combo is said to consist of a 12-megapixel rear-facing and an 8-megapixel selfie-centric front-facing camera. 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. We’re hoping Huawei has resolved the Snapdragon 810’s overheating issues. To keep the lights on, the phablet is said to come with a 3,500 mAh battery. A fingerprint scanner is said to be found on the back of the device.

The two are expected to run Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), which is the latest version of Android.

Google has announced that it will be holding a media event on the 29th of September. The two are expected to be officially announced at the event. Pre-orders via Google Play are expected to kick off on the 13th of October.

Render leaks Huawei Nexus 6P colour options

Google has announced that it will be hosting a press event on the 29th of September (less than a week away). At the event, we’re expecting to see the Huawei Nexus 6P make its official debut, which has been the subject of countless leaks in the past few months. Now, a new leak reveals more about the phablet’s colour options.

Colour options

Huawei-Nexus-6P

 

Android Police is responsible for this latest leak and is the same site that has been actively leaking information on the upcoming Huawei-made Nexus phablet. The render above shows that the Huawei Nexus 6P will be available in white, black, gold, and aluminium/silver. Previously, we learned that the phablet will be available in white and sliver, but this is the first time we’re seeing the gold and black colour options.

So far, we’ve learned from previous leaks that the Huawei Nexus 6P will sport a 5.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. Internal storage options are said to include 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB versions. Unfortunately, this also suggests that there will be no support for a microSD card, as it would make sense for Google to make Nexus owners use its cloud services instead of using a microSD card. Its camera combo consists of the 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with laser autofocus assist and an 8-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera. Under the hood will 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. Of course, like all Nexus devices before it, the Nexus 6P is expected to run an unadulterated version of Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) out of the box. Other rumoured specs include dual front-facing speakers, a fingerprint sensor found on the back of the device, and the new USB Type-C reversible connector, which means no more plugging in the connector the wrong way.

Google is expected to lift the lid on not one but two new Nexus devices on the 29th of September, which is the first time the search giant will introduce two new Nexus devices. The other device is the unannounced LG Nexus 5X smartphone. The two new Nexus devices are expected to be put up for pre-order on the 13th of October.

Is this the press render of the unannounced Huawei Nexus 6P?

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.

Leaked render

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.
