Huawei Nexus
The same user who earlier leaked what appears to be the first pictures of the Huawei Nexus phone, has shown off more images of the device on Google+.

The new pics show off more details of the phone, including the front and rear of the phone as well as a nice pic of the bottom of the phone which ‘confirms’ the USB-C connector for the phone. Finally, we get a picture of the bootloader, which nails down some of the nitty gritty of the specs of the phone. The front and rear panels are self-explanatory, as is the picture of the USB-C port.

The picture of the bootloader answers a number of questions, including confirming the ‘Angler’ code-name of the phone, as well as leading to some conclusions – again, IF it’s real – about the hardware. The bootloader lists an MSM8994 0x20001 processor, better known as the Snapdragon 810 (v2.1) and 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM, as well as 64GB of Samsung supplied eMMC internal storage.

Neuxs - Angler - 4

While the pics showed up on Google+, they are all watermarked with Weibo User account, which shows two entries with the picture, speculating the processor could change next year to the Snapdragon 820, though this would be unlikely.

Again, this is with a large grain of salt, but it’s looking pretty real.

That’s one ugly phone. I guess it may just be a prototype. It’s not a big surprise that they chose the Snapdragon 810. I wonder if the LG model with include the 808 instead. I can’t imagine them choosing a slower processor (as is the case with the Moto X Play).


Its got some bolt on case installed.
