Cases allegedly built for Nexus 5 (2015) confirm earlier leaks; Kirin 950 SoC for Huawei Nexus?
Recently, we showed you renders that reportedly revealed the look of the Nexus 5 (2015). Today, a new leak has surfaced, but this time the subject matter is a line of cases that are said to have been built for the rumored stock Android device. The cases were discovered on a website named AliExpress and appear to offer some protection for the phone.

More importantly, the cutouts seem to confirm the camera hump, the fingerprint scanner, the dual LED flash and the laser auto focus. In fact, the case seems to be a perfect fit for the prototype that we showed you yesterday

The Nexus 5 (2015), if it follows tradition, will be unveiled in the second half of October. While nothing has come out of LG's camp to make the handset official, speculation has been rampant about two possible Nexus models coming to market this year. The Nexus 5 (2015) is rumored to be the smaller-screened Nexus model with a 5.2-inch screen, while a Huawei built Nexus handset is said to feature a 5.7-inch screen.

While previous speculation called for the Snapdragon 810 to power the Huawei Nexus model, a report from the Netherlands published today says that Huawei's own Kirin 950 chipset will be found under the hood. Earlier today, we passed along a chart of Geekbench scores allegedly achieved by next-generation chipsets. The Kirin 950 has yet to be unveiled by the manufacturer, but if the benchmark tests are true, it would seem capable of powering a Huawei Nexus phone. The SoC is said to carry the Mali-T880 MP6 GPU.
