Huawei Nexus 6P revealed ahead of Google event


We already know that Google is holding an event on September 29 at which new Nexus phones will likely be unveiled. Now we’ve got a pretty good idea of what one of the new phones will look like, too.

A render of the Huawei Nexus 6P has been shared by the folks at Android Police, showing a device that’s got Huawei and Nexus branding as well as a fingerprint reader on its backside. Also on the rear of the phone is a hump at its top that holds the phone’s camera and its flash. Meanwhile, the front of the phone offers a pair of speakers.

The Huawei Nexus 6P is rumored to feature a 5.7-inch display, Snapdragon 810 processor, and 32/64/128GB of storage. There’s no word on how friendly it’ll be with T-Mobile’s network, but the Nexus 6 included bands 2, 4, and 12, and considering how Google is using T-Mobile’s network for Project Fi, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Nexus 6P include strong support for T-Mo’s network as well.

    No offense intended to the Alex, who I am sure is talented, I’m just not feeling the energy and excitement for T-Mobile this site once had. I’ve came to the realization that this site is no longer for me.

    That daily sugar high of TMO has been replaced for me at reddit.

    I wish Alex and phonedog management the best. Take care everyone.

    • TheVorlon

      T-Mobile has been boring for a while now.

      Alex is doing just fine.

      • Crabapple

        Lol since legere took over there hasn’t been a second of boredom. lay off the depressants.

    • Jason

      What does ‘energy’ have to do with an article about a Nexus phone?

      • Basically, he wants hype that give him energy to be a fanboy for a carrier. I think he needs to find a hobby.

    • Jose Lugo

      We need more cow bells!!!! LOL!!!!

      Keep up the good work Alex!!

  • Jason

    G is going with Huawei? Really? Nothing personal, but they have such a cheap, shoddy product reputation its a little surprising. I guess Google likes to give everybody a shot but Chinese cell phone companies are crapola.

    • Durandal_1707

      The “P” in “Nexus 6P” stands for “piss-ugly.”

  • FILA

    Look at those bezels. Wow. If Moto can do better with the Nexus 6 2014, come on.

  • cloud strife

    The front is generic & boring as all Nexus which is acceptable. The back makes me cringe. They should just made it simple like N5 & 6 or cool like the N4.

  • crazychef83

    I wonder why doesnt google give sony a shot at the nexus project. They gave them a chance on their tv interface?

    • Arnold Shoon

      I’ve been hoping for a waterproof nexus since LG started making them!

    • Jeremy Turnley

      They probably don’t like the one design that Sony knows how to do. :P

  • Joey

    When is the G Flex 2 coming out for T-Mobile?

    • Billy Allen

      Might as well wait for the Flex 3 at this point lol. Only a few months until its unveiled lol

  • Philip

    That full bar at the back? It look sooo ugly! The N6 as it is now its pretty.

    • Yea..and fingerprint reader in the back too. I can’t imagine this going well.

      • 21stNow

        I haven’t had a phone with a fingerprint reader on the back, but I would like to try one (not this one, though). It is awkward when I need to use the Note 4 or the iPhone 6 Plus with one hand and have to either use two hands or set it on a flat surface to unlock it.

      • Jeremy Turnley

        Like the buttons on the LG phones, it’s a natural place for it on these larger phones. The middle of the back is where your finger naturally rests, so having the sensor there should be pretty convenient.

    • 21stNow

      Has anyone said what the purpose of that bar is? I agree that it is unappealing.

  • Ordeith

    Nexus. Still Ugly.
    Android. Still Spyware.
    Google. Still Evil.

    • Android_God

      Let me get my tinfoil hat on and I’ll get back with you.

    • Jeremy Turnley

      IPhone. Still Spyware, just more expensive.
      Appstore. Still censored.
      Apple. Still Evil.

      Windows 10. Still Spyware.
      Microsoft. Still Evil.

      Go ahead and pick your poison.

      • Ordeith

        Apple. End to end encryption to get them out of complying with government requests to “wiretap” the data.

        Microsoft: Private keys to cloud storage to keep prying eyes out, geo isolation of stored data, fighting government requests for data access across international borders.

        Google: Writing software for US intelligence agencies to make them better at data mining, providing “network speed” data feeds to governmental agencies, sees more than 90% of all revenue from activities related to privacy invasion and tracking.

        Sure they all do some tracking to an extent, but there is a clear outlier in Google.

        • Jeremy Turnley

          Gotta say, I am absolutely no more comfortable with private companies gathering data than I am with the government doing so. The government’s corruption is directly tied to corporate interests influence over the last 40 years, so Apple and MS’ gathering of data is as much a threat to personal freedoms as Google. They just are more clandestine about it – paying lobbyists to make the changes that they want based on your data in the end is no better.

        • Ordeith

          The largest single lobbyist in the US happens to be Google. So…. Yeah…

        • networkdood

          You do realize that MS has backdoors in Windows OS to let the NSA in, right?

        • Ordeith

          I know of the backdoors in Android, Chrome (even patches itself into Windows dll files), and the “network speed” data feed Google provides to US Intelligence Agencies.

        • networkdood

          Microsoft did much worse, but, yep…just about all tech companies were in involved…

  • someguy

    I guess it just me but I don’t think the phone look ugly. I acutely thing it look pretty cool but I gotta see it in person thoe.
    And to that guy NO I’m not on Google payroll!

  • AnthonyRyan89

    Can’t wait for T-mobile to offer the 128GB

    • williejackbrainer

      I hope it will be available in store, however I think it’ll only be available via online store.

      • AnthonyRyan89

        I think it will be to via online store. I hope it doesn’t take as long to get like the 64GB N6 I finally got it December 19th last year, ordered it when it was available online.

  • hmm, I think I might be the only one that’s not a fan of this design, YIKES! I wonder how much it will cost…the Moto X Pure is looking pretty good now…as this thing is hideous!

  • Jason Crumbley

    Massive bezel, and crazy camera hump is a no go, for me.
