Huawei Nexus 6 Design Video

Earlier this week, a video showed us a purported final Google Nexus 5 concept rendered using specifications leaked to case manufacturers, and now a second similar video is available online, offering us a better look at what might be Google’s second Nexus smartphone this year, a worthy Nexus 6 successor.

However, it’s not Motorola that’s making this particular smartphone this year. Instead, it’s Huawei the company chosen to make the 5.7-inch smartphone that’ll join the new LG Nexus 5 in Google’s lineup later this year, once Android M is ready to roll out.

The same Uswitch, which posted the LG Nexus 5 video, has uploaded the new Huawei Nexus design leak, as sourced by @OnLeaks.

The video reveals the phone will have some of the same features as the new Nexus 5, including a protruding camera on the back, a fingerprint sensor also placed on the back and a USB Type-C connector.

Interestingly, the tech site says that Huawei has been testing two display sizes for the handset, including 5.5-inch and 5.7-inch. Most rumors so far claimed the new Nexus smartphone will have a 5.7-inch display.

The new Nexus phablet video and a few pictures follow below.
