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

Huawei Nexus specs leak on GFXBench: 5.7
If there was any doubt about the specs of the upcoming Huawei-made Google Nexus device, this latest entry in the GFXBench database should dispel them like tiny clouds on a hot summer day. 

Coded under the internal name Huawei Angler, the next Google flagship will apparently carry a 5.7" display, just as rumored, with a 2560 x 1440 Quad HD resolution. Last month we heard that the Huawei Nexus will have a 159.4 x 78.3 x 6.6/8.5mm chassis, which won't make it the most compact 5.7-incher out there, like the Note5, but rather about average in that respect.

The processing power is provided by Snapdragon 810, clocked at 1.9 GHz, with Adreno 430 GPU, and there are 3 GB of RAM. The available internal storage is listed as 24 GB, which indicates a 32 GB mark in the official specs sheet. There is a 13 MP rear camera and Huawei's typical 8 MP front shooter that is present on most of its flagships now. Interestingly, the phone features a barometer inside, so there might be apps or features taking advantage of its atmospheric pressure measurements.

The star of the show, of course, as with every Nexus device, is Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and everything indicates that this Quad HD Huawei will be the poster child for the newest Android version. The two Nexus devices by LG and Huawei are expected to be unveiled on September 29th, with availability rumored for October 13th.

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.

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.

Why? 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)

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.

To each his own man.. I disliked both of the mentioned devices but that's why we have options

G2 rapes all phones in history, is the best phone ever made, with least issues, and biggest performance (feature set) jump ever.
