Huawei Nexus 6P color options leak ahead of next week's official unveiling

Unless something extraordinary happens next week at Google's Nexus event, the company will not take us by surprise with the design or the specs of the Huawei-made Nexus 6P. An endless stream of rumors, benchmark results, leaked press renders, and live photos of prototype units has previously revealed the curves and the internal components of the Nexus 6 successor. However, one thing that was missing from the picture up until recently were the color options. Thankfully, a new leak claims to shed light on this detail as well.

Allegedly, Google will launch the Nexus 6P in white, black, gold, and aluminum/silver although the official names will probably be embellished a bit. The previous leaks indicated towards white and silver options, but this is the first time we're hearing of gold and black versions.

If you're in need of a quick recap, the Google Nexus 6P is widely expected to come with a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels, Qualcomm's octa-core Snapdragon 810 chipset, 3GB of RAM, a 13MP primary camera with laser autofocus assist, and an 8MP selfie shooter on the front. Other rumored specs include dual front-facing speakers, a back-mounted fingerprint sensor, as well as the new USB Type-C reversible connector. In terms of storage, there's reason to believe that the first Huawei Nexus will come in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB options. On the software side, the Huawei Nexus 6P will rock Android 6.0 Marshmallow, an OS version that it will debut along the LG Nexus 5X.

What do you guys think of these rumored Nexus 6P color options?

I think the black periscope look is good. I cannot stop staring at it. BTW, LG Nexus 5X also leaked.

I love the black color too. I think Huawei Nexus p6 is the winner against 5x for 2 main reasons "hardware specifications": Lg 5x: 2gb ram, front camera 5megapixel. Huawei p6: 3gb, front camera 8 megapixel. a 2gb ram?, is that really called an upgrade!

The black bar throws off all the colors .

Yeah, but so do iPhone 6 antennae. But we humans always look for something to critique. Our flaws make us unique, most iPhone clones omit the antennae design, so you should be proud about it.

The black one looks a lot better because that big strip isn't as contrasting and jarring on that colour. It still looks weird from that picture at that distance but close up it might actually look cool if it's semi transparent and you can you the internals through the tint. Either way, I still stand by my original thoughts that this would be one of the best looking phones without that Nexus 10 strip thing.

Only thing is that bar (which looks good, don't getme wrong) is just effin protruding like I don't even know :-0 That's my only complaint. Otherwise, it looks stunning.

Maybe the ugliest device I've seen to date. And why the Nexus writing is so big, we are supposed to do a free advertising for this device?

How I wished that this nexus would use the sd 820, too bad it'll use the infamous sd 810, I don't know how much would impact on the sales as for me I wanted to get a nexus so bad but I guess the sd 810 will keep me away.

This 2 new nexus are going to be great stop complaining about cosmetic design ,most going to put a cover on it anyways. Also this 2 nexus devices are the best androids phones period. All skin droids are a waste of money. Samsung note 6 or edge are trash and anyone who says others wise don't know tech.

No color can hide that ugly hump unless invisible is a color. I would still choose Sony Z5 Premium over this.
