Huawei Nexus specs leak on GFXBench: 5.7" QHD screen, 8 MP selfie shooter, barometer

Um... at 159.4mm, it's taller than the Nexus 6. I don't think that really qualifies as "average" for a 5.7 inch screen size.

Maybe the entire purpose of this device is to clear out inventory of the Moto N6.

The purpose of the device SHOULD give the best representation of Google. But there are some key issues.
1. Ugly design with hideous camera hump
2. Screen to body ratio is looking pretty bad
3. SD810, aka Hotplate
4. Camera and battery life already looks to be concern
Google, wtf is wrong with you guys?? Pick a manufacturer that can build a flagship you are willing to put your name on. WTF you guys thinking?
There ain't no Googliness in this B***h. Just ugly and laziness.

They should have ditched sd810 and use kirin 950.
45. Suo.Eno (Posts: 498; Member since: 17 Feb 2013)
Only a sound option if Huawei's willing to let Kirin 950 adhere to GPL compliance to fit the Nexus badge. I don't think so. Doing that will either force their hand to open up the entire Kirin line OR start to after 950.

Yeah, I don't think that I want to carry around a shower radio as my phone, so, yes, I agree it's hideous, but calling it an 810 Hotplate?
No way. I'm on a LG G Flex 2 with the 810, and it's awesome fast and on 5.1.1. Its not the hot plate it was originally. The version in the Nexus Huawei should be an updated hardware version which is supposed to be even further improved. The thing will be smokin fast...and not because it's a fire log.

Those bezels are the issue...... Top, and bottom. Should not be taller than the nexus 6 and have a smaller screen. I will pass on this.......only 3 gigs of ram...... Not future proof. Isn't android suppose to be better with 4 gigs of ram going forward.....

AMOLED? then I'm in. I would like it to have the new Mate S design though.

This phone is extremely ugly. Why Nexus phone often ugly design! Is the design request by a person from Google that don't have sense of beauty?

This has a ugly back but the Nexus 6 & the Nexus 5 were great looking phones. Love my Nexus 5, but the Nexus 5x looks just as good.

i feel samsung should have got the job for this nexus !! ( or atleast for the next nexus now)
ram should have been 4 gb in this......considering all the previous nexus devices were the best in specs at their time.

That black hump makes this phone look like crap. Seriously, most OEMs seem to lack experience in design department. Google should have asked LG to make the 2 versions.
8. WallStreet (Posts: 256; Member since: 21 Sep 2014)
It's just got terrible design if are to take the renders seriously.

23. SamsungPhanboy (banned) (Posts: 765; Member since: 31 Mar 2015)
Nexus 5 is my fav phone of all time
24. Pattyface (Posts: 1612; Member since: 20 Aug 2014)
Gosh.. I hated the nexus 5 more than any other nexus.
25. SamsungPhanboy (banned) (Posts: 765; Member since: 31 Mar 2015)
Performance wise, it is the best phone I've ever used.

I like how you are trying to gain some credibility around here. Pls just smack yourself with a mop, patriot.
PA I think its time to get rid of this demon (patriot) trough some exorcism or other shi* lol.

LOL gain some credibility?
I'm not on here to earn respect of others. I'm here to discuss mobile phones.
So unless you have anything to add to the convo, you can stop stalking me everywhere on phonearena.

Washed out screen, terrible battery life, most generic looking nexus ever (subjective)
27. Taters (banned) (Posts: 6474; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Eh. I am the opposite. I thought the Nexus 5 and Nexus 10 were the two best by far but people usually don't agree, especially with the Nexus 10.
The reviews agreed with me though.
37. Pattyface (Posts: 1612; Member since: 20 Aug 2014)
To each his own man.. I disliked both of the mentioned devices but that's why we have options
41. dazed1 (Posts: 354; Member since: 28 Jul 2015)
G2 rapes all phones in history, is the best phone ever made, with least issues, and biggest performance (feature set) jump ever.
11. tywinlannister (Posts: 20; Member since: 24 Aug 2015)
Not good. Will go for Mi5 as and when it launches.

You can use as 820 now according to Qualcomm, Google.
18. wargreymon (Posts: 712; Member since: 05 Nov 2013)
Do you know how long it takes to produce a phone? It's not like you start one month and ship the next.

17. roldefol (Posts: 4242; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
You can *sample* the SD820, like Samsung is doing, like LG and Microsoft and Motorola are all likely doing. Just because chip samples exist for design and testing purposes doesn't mean it's ready for mass production.
With the SD820, you're looking at an all-new CPU design on a fab process (14 nm) and partner (Samsung) that are new to Qualcomm. And after the SD810 debacle, they're going to take the time to do it right.
20. wargreymon (Posts: 712; Member since: 05 Nov 2013)
Indeed, OEMs are using it to make next-gen and giving feedback to Qualcomm. But most unlikely in massproduction for another month or two, which is when OEMs should be finishing up most of the hardware aspects and tests of their new phones.
32. roldefol (Posts: 4242; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
I had my hopes up earlier in the year that the SD820 would be available this year, like the SD805 last year. But the differences between the 808/810 and the 820 are vast. Qualcomm has been leaking details for months, but they still haven't officially announced the 820. We're not likely to see it widely available until this winter.

SnapToaster 810. This will sell even worse than the current Nexus.
21. Taters (banned) (Posts: 6474; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Eh? There is a 5.7 inch phone smaller than the Note 5? The Note 5 is the same size as the LG G4 and even that was compact for a 5.5 inch phone.
33. roldefol (Posts: 4242; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
Or the Droid X's retro-futuristic older brother.

Looks like a colonoscopy exam camera rofl
35. fyahking (Posts: 859; Member since: 28 Jan 2015)
The hump looks like one of those underwater ocean googles.lol
43. ltavaress (Posts: 25; Member since: 20 Feb 2012)
last nexus that really got it was the nexus 5, they should keep it at realistic sizes (around 5 inches), thin design and great camera... I miss those phones, might get the Xperia Z5 Compact when it's more affordable. Right now I'm happy with my motorola V3 hahaha
