More Huawei Nexus cases hint at a round finger scanner on the back
Google is widely expected to announce the seasonal Nexus crop on September 29th, but this time it could have two phones making a splash - a 5.2" LG Nexus 5X, and a 5.5" Huawei Nexus. Another batch of cases has leaked out for the Google phone made by Huawei, and, in case anyone still was wandering, they all have a round opening at the back, reconfirming a fingerprint scanner there. We'd rather have the finger sensor on the side, like on the new Xperia Z5 trio, or even on Huawei's own 7i, but this Nexus has probably been in the lab for a while.

There is also an irregular cutout confirming the camera in the upper left corner, which is housed in a slightly elevated portion of the back, said to be about 1.9mm. The phone looks pretty good on its own, especially if it follows the design of Huawei's recent thin all-metal warriors like the Mate S, the G8 or the P8. We'd expect this one to be slightly more expensive than the LG Nexus, due to the premium design, but there are still a few weeks to be had before we know for sure.
