Purported Huawei Nexus photos leak, showcase its guts for everyone to see (Update: false alarm)

Strange things happen on Fridays, including, but not limited to, leaking alleged photos of the rumored Huawei Nexus 2016 smartphone. Chances are pretty good that these are the real deal, as according to the source, the smartphone pictured here carries the code H1621 + H1622. Last year's Huawei Nexus 6P was marked H1511 + H1512. Sounds like the markings of a successor, no?

UPDATE: Well, no. Turns out this is just an honor 5x for TracFone. False alarm, everyone!

We also get to learn that this year's Nexus from Huawei will come with a 3100mAh Li-iOn battery, and also features a fingerprint sensor. Not much of a revelation considering such stuff is to be expected from a high-end Nexus, but reassuring nevertheless.

To recap once more, we are expecting three Nexus devices from Google and its hardware partners this year. Two will be made by HTC, and one will ship out of Huawei. The ones from HTC are codenamed Marlin (M1) and Sailfish (S1), respectively. The one by Huawei isn't out in the wild yet, but a certain Mr. Charlene Munilall (CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group South Africa) confirmed that the company is "doing the Nexus again this year." May that, and the leaked photos reassure fans of the brand that its efforts are once again concentrated on building a high-end phone for Google.

So this post gets updated as a false alarm, but not the one yesterday claiming the official Milanese Loop for Apple Watch was on sale for $25 on Groupon, when in fact it was merely a knockoff being sold for that price? Alright then.

I bet it's not honor Actually it is a copy of Honor 5x with the only difference that the bottom of the rear panel found the logo Huawei, not Honor . Maybe Google has a mid range Nexus device this year.

PA!!!!!! *facepalm* so you can't tell this isn't a nexus? "We're doing the nexus again this year" doesn't necessarily mean "we're making a new nexus phone this year". That interview was totally misinterpreted, they were talking bout the nexus programme and supply chain in india thus made that statement. So there's no way in hell that's a nexus, and even if they're making one, it sure isn't this phone we're looking at here (honor 5x).. Thought you guys were proffessionals?

Huawei sucks in comparison of build quality of HTC. I will definitely be checking out the HTC nexus devices this fall!

Yep, just pulled my 5X out of my pocket and it's exactly the same. Either they're recycling parts or this is bogus. My money's on the latter
