Leaks Confirm Google’s Next Nexus Will Have Metal Body, Snapdragon 820 Processor
It has been rumoured that Huawei is making the next Nexus phone, or at least one of the two Nexus phones that are possibly coming this year. But now we have a confirmation, as good a confirmation as we can get sort of the official announcement.
Evan Blass, who has a impressive record of revealing information on upcoming phones, has tweeted from his Twitter handle @evleaks that Huawei is making a Nexus phone.
He has also revealed that the next Nexus phone would be smaller in size compared to Motorola-made nexus 6, which was launched last year. Instead of a 6-inch screen, the Huawei-made Nexus will have a screen size of 5.7 inches. However, it will retain the Quad HD resolution so it is likely to have a sharper screen.
The big surprise with the next Nexus, however, is likely to be the design and the processor. Until now, Nexus phones have used a processor that is current generation or, in some cases, a generation behind. But the Huawei-made Nexus is likley to use Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, a processor that we are yet to see in any phone.
Unlike other Nexus phones, it will also have a metal body though for now it is not clear if this metal body refers to the metal frame, similar to what the Nexus 6 has, or a complete redesigned shell with unibody design.
Apart from the Huawei-made Nexus, Google is also likely to announce a more compact and smaller Nexus made by LG. This LG-made Nexus will be a natural successor to the much venerable Nexus 5.
When Nexus 6 was released a lot of people complained that its big size put it in an entirely different category. This is also one of the reasons why a lot of nexus enthusiasts continue to use the Nexus 5 instead of upgrading to Nexus 6 because the Motorola-made device is too big to be a handy phone.
