New Huawei Nexus Smartphone Leaked Images Tip Snapdragon 810, USB Type-C


New images claiming to show Google’s upcoming Nexus smartphone made by Huawei have surfaced on the Internet. The fresh images show the handset covered in a case hiding almost the entire rear panel and sides; though they show the charging port featuring USB Type-C.

In another leaked image of the alleged Huawei Nexus smartphone, the bootloader of the handset showing 64GB of inbuilt storage and the MSM8994 SoC aka Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 was spotted. The new leaked images come via the same Google+ user named Tiesen Fu who recently posted images of the Huawei-made Nexus smartphone. An earlier report had also claimed that the Huawei-made Nexus may feature the USB Type-C port.

The inclusion of USB Type-C support does not come as a surprise however, with the new Nexus smartphones meant to be the platform lead devices for Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and Google officially announcing support for the USB specification at I/O 2015.

The last leaked images of the Huawei-made Nexus smartphone showed the rear camera placed on a bump that stretched along the entire width of the back panel. The primary camera was placed on the top-left side with slightly protruding glass panel on the top. It was also seen accompanied by a dual-LED flash module, but no laser autofocus sensor was seen in the leaked image. The fingerprint sensor and front-facing speakers were also present, as previously tipped.

We already know that Huawei and LG have been reportedly working on Nexus devices set to launch later this year alongside Android 6.0 Marshmallow final build.
