Mock-ups imagine a Huawei Nexus based on the Honor 6 Plus and its dual camera setup
Huawei is on Google's shortlist for its 2015 Nexus device, rumors have it, and a new trio of mock-ups courtesy of SlashGear imagine a world where the rumor is fact.

Based on the Honor 6 Plus, the Huawei Nexus retains all that is true of the device – like the innovative dual camera setup – and simply adds a touch of Nexus branding on top. Obviously, with the Honor 6 Plus already a market reality, and the next Nexus seemingly still many months away, this is nothing more than an exercise in speculation. Still, word on the street is that if a Huawei Nexus device is, indeed, in the works, it'll be based on no other than the aforementioned phablet.

The Huawei Honor 6 Plus as we know it has a 5.5-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution, an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 925 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage expandable through microSD, a 3,600 mAh battery, an 8-megapixel selfie snapper, and two 8-megapixel cameras at the back that allow for some cool bokeh effects and post-capture aperture adjustment.

So what are the odds that Google is seriously considering Huawei for a Nexus partner? Despite our initial skepticism, it does make a certain amount of sense to seek such a course of action. For the most part, the Chinese market is heavily dependent on Android, but Google wins nothing out of the millions of users in the Middle Kingdom. That's because virtually every device running Google's platform in mainland China ships stripped off its layer of services and apps, including the Play Store. Instead, Chinese manufacturers rely on local or proprietary app stores that give them, and not Google, a piece of the pot. A Nexus-branded Huawei device, however, could be a way in for Google, for it will demonstrate the superiority of its own solutions over local competitors'. Considering China's population of over 1.3 billion people, it's easy to imagine that Google would be interested in cracking that particularly tough nut.

Minus the home buttton it does look like a fake iPhone. I have the last two Nexus, the Nexus 5, and Now the Nexus 6. Two 8 mega pixel camera's don't appeal to me unless they were higher than 8. That's just my two cents, and whaty's up with people getting angry because some of us see an iPhone resemblance in this mock up.

Fake iphone, maybe? This project should 100% happen!! Huawei makes a makes a great product. I think on top of a vanilla android experience you will see a great device.

With that design? It really looks like an iPhone. No one can deny that FACT.

It needs to be much more rounder, have shorter bottom bezel with a notification led, and on screen buttons to be more of a nexus device. Huawei could pull it off with a solid price point and compete against one plus.
