This week we got a first look at what the 2015 LG Nexus 5 might look like, thanks to rendered photos and video based on factory designs supplied to accessory makers.

Now it’s time for a sneak peek (or leak) at the Huawei Nexus 6.

Update: The 2015 Nexus 5 has also been photographed in the wild (probably).

The colors might not be accurate and it’s not clear whether the phone will be plastic, metal, or some combination of the two. But according to information obtained by @onleaks and uSwitch, the camera, fingerprint scanner, buttons and ports should all be positioned as shown in the renderings.

We’ve seen numerous reports suggesting that the next Nexus 6 will feature a 5.7 inch display and that Google is developing the phone with Chinese device maker Huawei. According to uSwitch, it’s possible the phone will actually have a 5.5 inch screen, although it could also have a 5.7 inch display.

Either way, it’s expected to measure 159.4mm x 78.3mm x 6.6mm at its thinnest point (and 8.5mm near the top of the phone, where the camera is located). That would make it about the same size as the 2014 Nexus 6, but a little bit slimmer.

Like the leaked Nexus 5 renderings, the new images show a USB Type-C connector on the bottom of the phone, and a fingerprint reader on the back.

What we still don’t know is what kind of processor, display, memory, or other hardware the phone will use… or how much it will cost. The 2014 Nexus 6 had a hefty $649 price tag, which was about twice as high as the starting price for the previous few Nexus phones. It wasn’t the first high-priced Nexus though. When I bought a Google Nexus One in 2010, I paid over $500 for the unlocked smartphone.

  1. Looks like they wanted to make an iPhone. Terrible design, whoever made this 3d.

  2. I wish they would make another nexus 7. I spend more time on that than my phone. I really like having a separate phone and tablet for the same price as a phablet. Just a preference.

      1. Actually the problem is that the Nexus range has been about nudging the Android market in certain directions, and not so much about being a commercial success.
        Before the Nexus 4 the mid-range Android market was in a mess and an after-thought of the high-end.
        Before Nexus 7 there were few 7-8″ tablets, and those that existed were non-price-competitive and under-powered.

        I agree with riddick; the Nexus 7 rules. I wish they made a new one (same size but with a smaller bezel!).

    1. I agree. The Nexus 7 was a superb tablet. Comfortable to hold and small enough to carry in my pocket. It would be awesome if Google came up with one with Android M.

  3. Huawei flew into my radar a little over a month ago when shopping for larger phones. Finally settled on the mid-range 6.1″ Ascend Mate 2 (super battery life) though I nearly pulled the trigger on the 7″ (16:10) MediaPad X2.

    The company is slowly making a name for itself (outside of China). They seem to really like putting in super-large (non-removable) batteries in their phones. Nice to see another company seriously investing in Android and pushing out some decent stuff.

    1. The only reason I don’t import the media pad x2 is the lack of LTE bands compatible with the mobile.

      Other wise that phone is the new hotness. Only thing that could make it better is duel facing front speakers.

  4. I hope this doesn’t cost as much as the current Nexus 6. Like maybe $500 or so would be fine.

  5. Probably get the smaller one considering it will be cheaper.
    This looks ugly compared to the lg version

  6. That’s a terrible concept. It’s like a Xiaomi Mi 4 with huge bezels. Those dimensions are not great even for 6 inch (the Mate 7 is 157mm tall), would be a pity if the design regresses – then again design has gone backwards this year.

    1. Good grief, you don’t even know if any of the sparse information leaked is true and you’re ready to crap all over it. Seriously, you haven’t a clue, have you?

      1. What are you on m8? Say no to drugs! I was commenting on the article ,what part of it got you confused.The comment about design maybe? That’s a remark on the market in general this year.

    2. Yeah I too noticed the bezels seem huge which is why I think this Render is bull. MATE 7 is 157 mm tall vs 159 for nexus by Huawei. Mate 7 has 6″ screen and this has either 5.5 or 5.7″.

      Even with duel front speakers it doesn’t make sense.

      However on the topic of giant bezels I would love to see the speakers right at the top and bottom and the edges squared off so the screen could go all the way down. Suddenly a 5.7″ screen can become 6.5″ in the same size body and a bigger screen to body ratio is always a good thing.
