    You will definitely want to file this one in your "salt-tossing rumor" category, but we supposedly have some specs on the Huawei Nexus device. According to the latest intel, it will have the following hardware:
    • Snapdragon 820
    • 5.7-inch QHD display
    • Metal unibody build
    • Fingerprint Scanner
    As you can see from the screen-cap, the rumor also suggested the device will be arriving Q4 of this year, which is pretty typical for a new Nexus line up. If all this turns out to be true, it looks like Huawei is making their official entrance into the US with a top-notch flagship as the vanguard of the new Android fleet!

    Source: Evan Blass on Twitter Huawei Nexus sounds impressive so far 5.7 QHD w metal body SD820 SoC fingerprint reader. Ships Q4.

    There's no word on that, but it seems unlikely as they will be made using a new manufacturing process.

    I'm sure, now that I'm ready for another Nexus, they won't be compatible with VZW. Although I haven't seen any issues with the Nexus 6 on VZW, so I don't see why it wouldn't be.

    on the move..

    IF I find the money to upgrade my phone this year, it's gonna be a tough choice. I really like what Moto's bringing to the table and would love to support their efforts to sell devices independent of the carriers, especially since it's supposed to work on vzw.

    But, I'm also very curious to try a device from an OEM that I haven't had any experience with before and these rumored specs are a very nice start...

    This year may be the right one to give a "new" company a shot. If the device is garbage, my Note 4 will still last me until next time around. I doubt that'll be the case though.
