    Previously we shared rumors that the next Nexus 6 phablet-sized smartphone might be a Huawei made product. Now, we have a new rumor with a few more specifics regarding that intel.

    Supposedly, the next Nexus 6 device might be architecturally based upon the Huawei Mate 8 smartphone, just as the original Nexus 5 was loosely based on the LG G2. Here's the latest rumored specs of the Huawei made Nexus:
    • Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 (although this is a departure from the Mate 8 which uses a Huawei made octa-core Kirin 930 processor.)
    • 5.7-inch to 6-inch 2560 x 1440 display
    • 3/4GB of RAM
    • 32/64GB of memory
    • A microSD slot (we are skeptical of this one, since Google rarely includes these with their devices)
    • 20.7-megapixel camera
    • 8-megapixel front-facing camera
    • Fingerprint sensor
    • Android 5.1 Lollipop
    The above image is a mockup of the possible look of the Huawei Nexus. What do you guys think of these specs?

    Still will believe it when I see it. Can't imagine that Huawei would beat out Sammy, HTC, Moto, and LG.

    Rather have Moto Nexus than that. Really like Moto's designs and builds.

    I don't think it's a matter of "beating out". I think Google is just spreading the wealth. It's now Huawei's turn as long as they meet Googles price point.
