Huawei Nexus leaks out in new hands-on video

LG’s rumored new Nexus has been getting most of the attention recently, but Google is expected to release two new stock Android smartphones this year. Now we’re getting a look at a second device from Huawei, courtesy of tech blogger and trusted leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer.

A leaked video of the upcoming Huawei Nexus appears to confirm several key features, including a fingerprint sensor on the rear panel and a USB-C connector along the bottom edge. The primary camera also looks pretty big, though there’s no way of knowing how many megapixels it will actually pack for now.

As for the design, there’s nothing too impressive here. Earlier rumors suggested the Nexus phablet could sport a unibody metal build, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Instead we may get metal edges and a plastic back panel. Then again, it’s possible this is just an early prototype and not the final design.

Based on previous leaks we’re also expecting a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 810 or 820 chip, a 21-megapixel rear camera and wireless charging. You can also count on getting the latest Android M software right out of the box.

Google probably won’t reveal its new Nexus lineup for at least a few more months, at least if the last few years are any indication. For now check out the full leaked hands-on video below.
