Things are starting to shape up quite nicely regarding the next Nexus, with both LG and Huawei rumored to be manufacturing two separate devices for this year's smartphone offering from Google. We've already seen several renders and such pop up depicting the devices that suggest two different approaches for the Nexus this year. While LG's device is expected to cater towards users who're not that keen towards device design, the Nexus from Huawei however, is expected to be more premium in nature. And it has also seen several images surface today for the first time that provides us with several key details on the device.
Live Images Of The Huawei Nexus Surface With Speculation About Processor
We have covered plenty of 2015 Nexus renders so far that claim to depict the device in all its glory. We've seen the camera sensor placed at the top of the device, with a fingerprint sensor on the device's rear, and today's images manage to confirm just that once again. But by the looks of things, as you can see in the image, the 2015 Nexus from Huawei might be coming with a removable back cover as well.
Speaking about its overall design, the device appears to be rather interesting in appearance, and in a smartphone world where we see devices resemble each other in atleast some way, Huawei's alleged Nexus offering manages to stand out on its own. Moving forward, we've also managed to uncover some images that depict the device's processor details, but we'll move to that after an image that shows one highly anticipated feature that will also be making a cut on the device.
That's right, the next Nexus might be coming with a USB Type-C connector on board, as you can see in the image above, for blazing fast data transfer speeds and fast charging.
Moving forward even more, some details about the device's dimensions and processor have also leaked. The 2015 Huawei Nexus will be measuring 159.4 x 78.3 and a thickness of either 6.6 or 8.5 mm. Screen size for the device will be 5.7 inches, and you can take a look at the processor details below.

As you can see in the image, the Nexus might be coming with the Snapdragon 810 on board, which should be the case if Google intends for the device to hit the shelves before this year's end. But the source of these images, or the one from China's Weibo to be more precise, claims that Google might switch the Snapdragon 810 with the 820. If this turns out to be true then either the Nexus devices will get delayed or we'll see the 820 hit the market sooner than expected, which shouldn't be the case in all likelihood.
Here are a few more images for your pleasure.
So the 2015 Nexus from Huawei is turning out to be quite an interesting device indeed. With a USB Type-C port on board, a fingerprint sensor and maybe even the Snapdragon 820, we might get to see a device that's easy on the pocket but comes with top tier specifications.
