A month ago an anonymous employee from Huawei revealed that Google is working with popular Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei to build the next generation Nexus smartphone. Now, fresh details of the Huawei Nexus 2015 smartphone have surfaced with high-end internals.
Evan Blass, the person famous for revealing rumored features of forthcoming smartphones and tablets has revealed on his @evleaks Twitter page that the Huawei Nexus 2015 specifications will include a Snapdragon 820 chipset and it will house a screen of 5.7 inches supporting Quad-HD resolution.
Blass also revealed that the Huawei variant will be sporting a metal construction. If this turns out to be true, it will be the first ever Nexus smartphone to feature a metal body. He has also stated that the handset will feature a fingerprint scanner.
Android Central claims that the upcoming Android M OS will carry native fingerprint scanning support. The publication also states that it is logical that the Nexus 2015 smartphone will arrive with a fingerprint scanner. Google has launched its previous Nexus handsets in late autumn. Blass also revealed that the shipping of Huawei Nexus 2015 smartphone will start in fourth quarter of this year.
On July 14, the AnTuTu benchmarks of a purported Nexus 2015 smartphone surfaced. Since the handset scored a record-breaking score of 85.530 on AnTuTu, rumors have been swirling that the handset may be powered by Snapdragon 820, which has not been officially released yet by Qualcomm. Phone Arena claims that Google is looking forward to partnering with Huawei with the aim of launching a Chinese version of the Android app store in China. Since the official Google Play Store is unavailable in China, users make use of third-party markets to download apps.
