We are curious to see whether or not Huawei intends on retaining the outer look of the smartphone or plans to change it up a little. However, if the design of the handset was meant to change, then we highly doubt that the team stationed at the Chinese smartphone OEM’s HQ would not be lazy enough to call it a Nexus 6P. Both the single-core and multi-core test results prove that the upcoming smartphone is indeed a powerful one, but we are interested to see if the company will increase the battery life, or keep it as it is.

According to the specification details of Nexus 6P, the smartphone comes with a 3,450mAh battery and a Type-C USB port. The device itself features a 5.7-inch AMOLED display with a resolution measuring at 1440p. Perhaps the biggest improvement for the Nexus series of smartphones was from the camera side of things. The 12.3MP rear shooter has a large sensor size, allowing more light to pass through and significantly improve the image quality for users.


Moreover, users could also engage in shooting slow-mo videos and also had the option to record 4K footage at 30FPS. Since Nexus 6P is avoid of a MicroSD card slot just like all the devices that came into the fold before it, the smartphone is available to purchase in the 32, 64, and 128GB storage capacities.
