Huawei built Nexus smartphone specs leaked

Huawei built Nexus smartphone specs leakedA report from China suggests the alleged specs for the next Nexus smartphone, which will be manufactured by Huawei. The unnamed device will replace the Motorola built Google Nexus 6.

The specs for the upcoming Nexus model were found on the Weibo site belonging to Chinese IT analyst firm Pan Jiutang. The rumored Huawei built Nexus is expected to feature a 5.7 inch OLED display with a 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution, and powered by Huawei's own Hi-Silicon Kirin chipset.

In the past we have seen Huawei back away from using QHD panels on their high end smartphones. We also hope the choice of using a Kirin chipset wont delay the quick Android updates the Nexus devices are known for. The current Nexus 9 has faced considerable delays in Android updates, which is reportedly caused by its custom NVIDIA processor. Considering the speculative nature of this story, we suggest taking this information with a grain of salt until we learn more.

HTC was the first to build the Google Nexus One, after returning last year for the infamous Google Nexus 9 tablet. Samsung is known for building the Google Galaxy Nexus and Google Nexus S, after LG took over for the Google Nexus 4 and Google Nexus 5. There have also been speculation that LG will return for another Nexus device this year. The Motorola built Google Nexus 6 is the newest and most expensive in the series to date, and we hope the company will return to its trend of affordable Nexus smartphones.
