If you’re like me, you prefer to see the real deal rather than renders of upcoming phones. However, comparing the recently leaked image of the new LG Nexus 5 to the renders that preceded it gives @OnLeaks some credibility over its insider knowledge.
But if small phones aren’t your cup of tea, fortunately, @OnLeaks still has your back. It now has alleged renders of the Huawei Nexus, the big brother Nexus that is said to have a 5.7″ display and all-metal build.
On the back, the fingerprint scanner sticks out like a sore thumb, bearing a similar circular design with the new Nexus 5. This could be a design cue that Google is pushing.
We can also see typical plastic-insert bands running along the sides, repeatedly used in metal designs. But a differentiating factor appears to be sections of extra plastic on the top and bottom. These could be for signals that don’t work through the metal, such as wireless charging and NFC.
On the bottom we can see the expected USB Type-C port. The source report (via uSwitch) even has dimensions: 159.4mm high and 78.3mm wide (including side buttons), with a thickness that ranges between 6.6mm and 8.5mm (at its thickest point). Bear in mind that the colors shown in these render are pure speculation.
What do you think about the design of the Huawei Nexus? Are you looking forward to this one over the new LG Nexus 5?
