Huawei Nexus to be powered by Snapdragon 810, not Snapdragon 820 according to analyst
Just the other day, we passed along specs allegedly belonging to the rumored Huawei Nexus handset. The source of this leak was none other than Evan Blass of @evleaks fame. According to Blass' specs, the stock Android phone being prepped by Huawei will be driven by the Snapdragon 820 SoC. Blass has a well-deserved reputation for accuracy, but according to one analyst, this time Blass' sources have failed him.

Chinese analyst Pan Jiutang posted on his Weibo account the reason why the Huawei Nexus will have a Snapdragon 810 under the hood. According to the analyst, Qualcomm will not be shipping the Snapdragon 820 before December. This means that the first devices to have the new chip inside will not be launched before March 2016. Jiutang says that the Huawei Nexus will be unveiled in November, too early to have the Snapdragon 820 on board.

The analyst goes on to say that the first smartphone to come to market with the Snapdragon 820 will be the Xiaomi Mi 5 Plus. We will have to wait until November to see who is right about the Nexus. For the record, Blass says that the Huawei Nexus will feature a 5.7-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. He adds that the phone will come with a metal body and a fingerprint reader. Both Blass and Jiutang expect the device to ship in this year's fourth quarter.
