The much rumoured Huawei Nexus has apparently come to light, at least in prototype form according to Steve Hemmerstoffer from NoWhereElse.fr and the man behind the @onleaks account, who has shown a video of a device on his YouTube channel.
The device pictured is a departure from the Huawei Mate M8 that was leaked the other day which is said to be the basis of the Huawei Nexus. Though similarly sized it seems, they do both also feature a centre mounted fingerprint scanner on the rear of the phone. The phone in the video, also shows a very familiar, at least to Nexus 5 owners, camera sensor, showing a slightly raised lens on the device.
Current rumours for the Huawei Nexus include a premium aluminium chasis, despite the device in the video above showing something a little more matte. The screen will apparently be slightly smaller than the rumoured 6″ screen on the Huawei Mate M8, going to a 5.7″ QHD (2560×1440) resolution AMOLED display.
That familiar looking camera lens on the rear will apparently hide a 21MP Sony IMX230 camera sensor which just about every Nexus enthusiast hopes will be the best camera yet.
Rounding of the specs are a Snapdragon 820 SoC and the latest rumour includes options for wireless charging – which we hope will be dual format Qi and WPA compatible – but nothing is certain.
We expect an announcement of the new Nexus phone(s?) in October with a release to the public in November.
