New Huawei Nexus benchmark reveals some killer hardware

Yesterday a benchmark for Huawei’s rumored Nexus phablet revealed a few fresh details about the device. Now a new benchmark may have spilled even more on the upcoming smartphone, teasing what’s quickly shaping up to be a pretty awesome stock Android handset.

According to this GFXBench listing Huawei’s Nexus will indeed offer a Snapdragon 810 chip and 3GB of RAM. It also packs a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, 24GB of storage (probably 32GB officially), an 11-megapixel rear camera and a 7-megapixel front-facing camera. That sounds pretty good overall, though we’re a little concerned that the primary camera may be a bit underpowered.

As for the design, Huawei is expected to pack the device in an all-metal shell, though it could also include a pretty ugly camera hump along the entire width of the device. The new Nexus may also sport some pretty thick bezels.

Still, if you’re looking for a new phone with a big screen, powerful specs and the latest version of Android this may be the one. Google still hasn’t confirmed any plans to launch a Huawei-made phablet, but it’s probably only a matter of time. The company is allegedly prepping for an event on September 29 in San Francisco where we’ll get an official look at the new device along with a smaller Nexus handset from LG.
