Huawei video leak could be the next Nexus phablet

By Stephen Schenck August 6, 2015, 1:46 pm

If the rumors are accurate, we’re looking forward to a pair of Nexus phones this year: a smaller LG 5.2-incher, and a Huawei 5.7-inch phablet. While the LG Nexus may be getting the most attention, if only due to the absence of a more petite Nexus option in 2014, the Huawei Nexus could end up being just as impressive, while also exposing the manufacturer to new audiences. Today we get what may be our first look at the phone, as a short video gives us a brief glimpse at an a previously unknown Huawei handset.

As the rumors have suggested for the Huawei Nexus, there’s indeed a fingerprint scanner present, with Huawei returning to its favored rear-mounted sensor. We also see a big, round, raised main camera element, and catch the briefest hint of a name embossed on the phone’s back. While the leading PO- are the most visible letters, some careful frame-by-frame analysis suggests the full name might just be POSEIDON.

Granted, we’ve been referring to the Huawei Nexus as the device codenamed Angler, but Poseidon also feels very much like it fits with the marine-life theme that’s been a recurring one for Nexus model codenames. OK, so that’s a weird thing to take the time to put on the back of a prototype in stylized lettering like this – and we’re not quite sure what to make of that choice – but it’s also just the kind of unexpected move that might also suggest this could be the real deal, especially from a company trying its hand at a Nexus model for the first time. Hopefully we’ll get to see some additional leaks soon that will shed more light on the situation.
