New Huawei Nexus 6P render leaks out, back and front visible

New Huawei Nexus 6P render leaks out, back and front visible
This year, for the first time ever, Google is getting ready to launch two Nexus smartphones at the same time. Reportedly called Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X, the new handsets are expected to be announced next week, on September 29. Of course, we've already seen various leaked images depicting both upcoming smartphones, and today we can take a look at a new render showing the Nexus 6P - which, as you may know, is manufactured by Huawei (another first for the Nexus universe).

Posted by Android Police, the render that we're talking about allows us to see the front and back of the Huawei-made Nexus. Design-wise, the Nexus 6P doesn't seem to be an impressive device, but we were kind of expecting this seeing the previously leaked images. The front side of the 6P is dominated by the 5.7-inch Quad HD display that's flanked by two speakers (top and bottom), while the back includes a fingerprint scanner and a black bar that hosts a camera with dual LED flash.

The Huawei Nexus 6P should be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, while also featuring 3 GB of RAM, an 8 MP front-facing camera, and three storage options: 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB. Just like the LG Nexus 5X, the Nexus 6P will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.

We're really curious to find out how Google will present the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X next week. What about you?

That 'sh1t' dragon has the BEST GPU in family (compared to SD 808/805/801) as of now.

Want full renders of the 5X front. It's the only nexus I'd consider this year. That Huawei is too ugly.

Would've liked the design more if Huawei used a design similar to their Mate 7/Honor 7/Mate S. Can't deny the front-facing speakers though.

If Huawei priced this device right, this device will kick ass more than moto 6.

Yes.. First time a barcode scanner integrated in a phone, which is surely unique...

Bizarre, like some sort of mix between a Moto X and a Droid X. I really wish Google would standardize their Nexus design language. At this rate, why not just bring back Google Play Editions instead?

I agree........ They should have stayed with the larger screen and offer the smalller 5.2" screen for those that want a small device. The nexus program is all over the place with no continuity. To me this is backwards, and side ways. The only thing forward is the screen.

The only reason why it's so ugly is that black strip on the back. The front looks similar to Moto with the dual grills but it's got bigger top and bottom bezel compared to Moto.

The back reminds me of the Dinosaur like enemies in Super Mario Bros. 2 that shoot eggs at you.

This design looks not so attractive but looks like a good design for large phone. I think huawei nexus is looks good.

i wonder why nexus phones have uninspiring design? Motorola nexus 6 has the most "ok" design but it's too bulky

I thought the Nexus 6 was the ugliest one actually. 1. Nexus 5 2. Nexus 4 ( this would have won if it wasn't so wide and short looking because of the 16:10 aspect ratio) 3. Nexus S 4. Galaxy Nexus 5. Suck T C nexus 6. Nexus 6 dead last. That's my rankings by looks.

1280x768 is 15:9, not 16:10, but your point is understood.

Opinions, opinions, in my opinion N5 and N4 are very good looking phones, I absolutely love red N5

*when the Nexus 6 sees the back of the Nexus 6P* "YOU'RE NOT MY DAD!!"

Obviously not. Since it's a younger cousin. Had Nexus 6P been from Motorola also, then Nexus 6 would have said "Son, I am disappoint".

Though the 2015 nexus pair will perform well, I am waiting for next year, when snapdragon 820 & Android 7 will be launched.

Lol HTC somehow managed to ruin the Nexus 9 which was as fool proof as you can get with the Tegra K1 and 64 bit. HTC f**ked it up good! I wouldn't let them near my phone with a 10000 foot pole. Sony I agree with though. A Z5 Nexus would be sick although I might actually prefer their UI these days.Its close enough to stock.
