Rumored specs outed for Huawei built Nexus handset

Rumored specs outed for Huawei built Nexus handset
A report out of China outs the alleged specs for the next Nexus handset, reportedly to be manufactured by Huawei. The unnamed device will replace the 6-inch Nexus 6 which is produced by Motorola. The specs for the upcoming Nexus model were found on the Weibo site belonging to Chinese IT analyst firm Pan Jiutang. Considering the speculative nature of this story, we suggest that you do take it with a grain of salt.

The rumored Huawei Nexus handset is expected to feature a Samsung built 5.7-inch OLED display with resolution of 1440 x 2560. While Huawei's own high-end models feature its home grown Hi-Silicon Kirin chipsets, the new Nexus will be equipped with the Snapdragon 810 SoC. This choice no doubt was something decided by Google. Huawei also has backed away from using a QHD screen on its own high-end models, saying that most smartphone users couldn't tell the difference between a resolution of 1080 x 1920 and one of 1440 x 2560. So we can assume that Google also demanded that a QHD resolution be used on the new Nexus phone.

In addition to a Nexus model from Huawei, there is also speculation that LG will be returning to the Nexus game after a year's hiatus. The manufacturer was responsible for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 handsets before turning over the reins to Motorola. Other Nexus handset manufacturers include HTC (Nexus One) and Samsung (Samsung Nexus S, Samsung Galaxy Nexus).

Thanks for the tip!
