The new face of Nexus: front speakers, fingerprint on the back, USB Type C on a 5.7” Huawei phablet and 5.2” LG phone
Not officially just yet, but leaks have been way too consistent and plentiful, and this latest one reveals the new face of the Nexus series: two Nexus phones are coming, a 5.7” phablet by Huawei, and a 5.2” phone by LG, and both will have front-facing speakers, a fingerprint reader on their back, and a USB Type C connector.
The leak comes courtesy of French leaker Steve Hammerstoffer (aka @onleaks), and also provides the full-on dimensions of the two upcoming new phones. Keep in mind that while @onleaks has a great track record with such pre-release info, this is still a leak and not official, and should be taken with a grain of salt.
- 5.2” LG Nexus dimensions: 146.9 x 72.9 x 8/9.8mm
- 5.7” Huawei Nexus dimensions: 159.4 x 78.3 x 6.6/8.5mm
You can immediately see that having two numbers for thickness means that these phones will most likely have a slight curve to its back, much like the Moto X, with the smaller number representing the thickness closer to the edges and the larger one - the maximum thickness in the middle. It is also mentioned that the camera could protrude (as you can see in the images below), which could also be the reason for the varying thickness spec. Keep in mind that this latest leak gives details about the specifications only, with no images, while the set of pictures below is from an earlier leak that may or may not be related to the actual device.
Both phones are likely to be made out of metal, with chances of the Huawei one being a metal-built phone with an all-aluminum body, while the LG one having a metal frame rather than the whole body mate of metal.
Naturally, the two phones will run the latest Android M release that we saw officially unveiled a couple of months ago at Google I/O. There are no further details about batteries or cameras, but with the current pace that the rumor mill is running at, we won’t be surprised to find out more about them soon.
