The rumoured dual Nexus phone release is firming up nicely, first we had a live shot of what’s claimed to be the LG Nexus 5 2015, and now what appears to be a live picture of the Huawei Nexus showing up in the wild.
The photos appeared on Google+, showing the front and rear of the phone, with the rear, centre mounted fingerprint sensor sitting where it’s been rumoured to be and what seems to be an aluminium casing making up the body. The rear also seems consistent with current high-end Huawei design language with what appears to be a glass panel strip across the top containing the camera and flash sensor. While there’s no side shot there does appear to be a gentle slope up from the back to that panel, which would give it a slightly top heavy look.
There was a third shot shared of what seems to be a case for the phone, with a hole for the fingerprint sensor as well as the Camera module, Flash and a third sensor or beam (Laser Auto-focus?), though no sign can be seen in the rear photo even when playing with the brightness and contrast. The case more clearly outlines the slope up to the top of the phone, making it clear the phone will have a bit of heft in the top end.
There’s a lot of rumours circulating around specs for the phone, but we shouldn’t have too much longer to wait, with most Nexus phone announcements coming in October, with availability generally coming to market in November.
As always, a grain of salt is best to keep on hand with any rumour, but this does look very good.
If this IS the Huawei Nexus, does it look good enough to capture your interest and hard earned dollars?
