New Huawei Nexus unofficial render offers close-up look at hardware design

As if we weren’t captivated enough by all the leaks and rumors surrounding Google’s plans for its next Nexus-series devices, today’s announcement of Android Marshmallow only has us thinking all the more about the company’s upcoming launches. Last week we saw an admittedly unofficial render emerge of LG’s rumored Nexus handset, and now that a leaked image of actual hardware appears to largely confirm the phone as depicted, it’s time to see what else the same source can come up with. Today we switch tracks over to the larger Huawei Nexus phone, as it gets the same video render treatment.

Just like with that LG Nexus video, this Huawei Nexus has been based on schematics obtained via third-party manufacturers. While this model sports a far less prominent rear camera than the LG phone, both models look like they’ll get a circular rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. And just like the LG Nexus, Huawei’s phone appears to be going with a USB type-C interface.

Interestingly, it sounds like the screen size on this phablet is still up for debate, with sources claiming Huawei’s been experimenting with both 5.5- and 5.7-inch panels.

In addition to this new Huawei video, we also see the publication of an additional LG Nexus video. This one’s based on the same design as last time around, but shows off the handset from some alternate angles.
