Google Nexus 6P by Huawei (was [Rumor] Huawei Nexus phone?)


Recommended Posts

Only specs I've really seen leaked are 5.7" screen and based on the unannounced "Mate 8" model.

 

From http://www.breathecast.com/articles/nexus-2015-rumors-news-leaked-video-reveals-specs-of-purported-2015-huawei-nexus-video-30407/

 

 

 

Recently, Hemmerstoffer uploaded a video featuring a prototype of the Huawei Ascend Mate 8. Latest rumors suggest that just like the 2015 LG Nexus will be inspired by the LG Nexus 5 from 2013, the upcoming Huawei Nexus smartphone is likely to be based on the yet to be released Mate 8 flagship. It is being rumored that the Chinese tech giant will unveil the Mate 8 smartphone at the IFA 2015 trade show in Berlin.
The purported Huawei Nexus smartphone features a USB Type-C connector at its bottom edge. The video also shows the display of the device for a couple of seconds. Speculation is rife that the device will pack a larger AMOLED display of 5.7 inches.
Meanwhile, Phone Arena reports that Samsung will manufacture the AMOLED screen of the 2015 Huawei Nexus phone. It is expected that the device will be powered by either a Snapdragon 810 or the upcoming Snapdragon 820 chipset together with 4 GB of RAM. It will run on Google's latest mobile operating system - Android M.

 

 

 

 

The Mate 7 had a 4100+mah battery, speculation is that this could have the same or bigger.

 

Anything passed through the FCC for a US and/or Sprint version that covers the Spark bands?  I'm in the market for a new phone this fall and will be going off contract, buying a Nexus.

Holy moly!  It was an act of congress, but MasterCard finally approved my claim!     They initially insisted that I get it repaired and get a repair estimate.  I explained several times and ways

psst lookie lookie.

It's here! It's finally here!!!     Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk

This is the device I'm extremely interested in.  We no longer take part in the phone subsidy game and purchase devices out of pocket.  Was hoping this years (large) Nexus would have been the same size as last year, but 5.7" will work as well.  If true, that battery will be beastly with the battery sipping tweaks M utilizes.

I'm very interested in the 2015 Moto X Pure and the Huawei Nexus.  Both fit into the size I'm looking to get back to (i miss my old Note 2 so much).  I don't want to be tied to TouchWiz or carrier blaot any longer.  So sick of having to root and stay on the CM cutting edge to be current with the OS and security patching.

 

Hopefully the price point and full specs for the Mate 8 come out in early September so that Google will make their announcement shortly after.

Couldn't possibly agree with your post any more.  If the Huawei isn't up to snuff then I'll go with the Moto X Pure.  My preference is Nexus.  Due to my visual disability, I have to root and modify phones and the Nexus is the easiest to work with in that regard.  Looking forward to Huawei showing the Mate 8 off at IFA.  Thanks for the links.

Here are some rumored Specs for the Mate 8, this will obviously not be a Sprint Spark device ;)

I've been wanting to try a Nexus device. I don't have any experience with Huawei phones, but I'm willing give it a try if it has a Snapdragon 820 instead of their homegrown chipset (which might be great, but I'd rather stick with a known quantity in Qualcomm).

I'd like to see it as well, but I am doubtful that it will have the 820.

All of the rumors have it with a homebrew chipset, based on the Mate8.

 

The Mate7 had a Kirin too

Processor aside, if the Huawei handset supports CDMA2000, it will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon baseband.

Very true AJ, the CDMA IP that Qualcomm has still makes them some money ;)

 

There is a history of Nexus devices that don't support CDMA:

Nexus One

Nexus S (later updated to support CDMA/WiMax)

Galaxy Nexus (later updated to support CDMA/WiMax)

Nexus 4

 

With two Nexus devices rumored (refreshed Nexus 5 and this Huawei) I could see one of them not supporting CDMA.

 

Here is 8/8 tweet from evleak that appears to the the Mate8 that is supposedly the base for the Huawei Nexus

I am glad that you posted this.  You read my mind, as I thought about posting the same thing.  If we do get two Nexus handsets this fall, I would not be shocked if the smaller LG Nexus supported CDMA2000 but the larger Huawei Nexus did not.

I'll be disappointed if that happens, however, the Moto X Pure is a great option too.  With the way Motorola is marketing it, it is essentially a Nexus device in that it has no bloat, carrier apps, locking, skins, etc.

I have almost zero interest in the Huawei Nexus handset.  Huawei is too much of a Chinese wild card.  And because of the 2015 Moto X, my interest in the LG Nexus handset is not that great -- unless I decide the Moto X truly is too big.

My own concern with the Moto X Pure is the RF performance.  From your review of the OET data, it was middle of the road.  I'm somewhat rural in West Michigan where cell site spacing is not the best.  With my S4T, Spring/Fall/Winter I get great LTE service, however, Summer is a bit spotty as tree foliage causes RF interference.

This would sadden me as my afflicted eyeballs need gynormous screen.

Food for thought... Wouldn't Google want their newest handsets to work with project fi? I would assume then that it would work with Sprints network. Just thinking out loud.

It could still use Project Fi without CDMA. Sprint and T-Mobile's LTE and GSM/HSPA+ fallback from T-Mobile.

 

Just a random thought.

I'm actually pretty excited about this phone. All the reviews I've read of the Mate 7 praise the build quality and everything you'd really be concerned about on the hardware side. Most of the criticism has been around the software tweaks, which would be nullified by this being a Nexus device. If it comes out, supports Sprint, and has anything like the battery life/build quality of the Mate 7 along with a slightly better camera and solid RF performance, I will be pretty stoked about it.

 

Speaking of RF performance, any idea when we might expect to see this and the supposed LG Nexus successor come through the FCC?

Lots of new image leaks

 

http://www.androidpolice.com/2015/08/24/more-images-of-the-huawei-nexus-angler-leak-showing-off-usb-type-c-port-and-snapdragon-810/

 With a SnapDragon 810?  Didn't those have overheating issues?  I thought this was going to have a homebrew processor

Still nothing through the FCC :/

But then it loses the coverage of the Sprint 3G network. Sprint's LTE isn't everywhere unfortunately and losing that dependable 3G connection would definitely make Project Fi lose it's appeal for me.

Not thrilled with the prospect of the Snapdragon 810 and that terrible looking camera situation on the back. Keeping an open mind until facts begin to appear.

Probably a fake leak but it isnt TERRIBLE looking to me at least. It just looks like they slimmed the phone down as much as possible. Makes me wonder how good of a camera that will be..

 

Still leaning towards the LG Nexus 5 after seeing this though.

      First Pixel device im somewhat excited about in a quite a while..

      The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed.
       
      Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.]
       
      Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish:
      Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?

      Hopefully we can finally start seeing some user feedback. So far so good! it is without a doubt the best device ive owned!!!

      Had not seen a thread for this yet, 
      I see some definite consumer advantages with Sprint's Network combined with TMob and Wi-fi.
      I have had many Nexus devices and I love my Nexus 6, although it is a bit big.
      The price is good for the service. ($20 / unl talk/txt, $10/gb)
       
      I hope the technical aspects work as they propose. I am a Google Voice Number user and love the "Any device" call capability and use it on my Tablet, Chromebook and phone. I rarely actually answer my Phone at the house. Answer the tablet or Chromebook.....
       
      I love Sprint's network, the upgrades they are putting forth and this Site, but if Project Fi works as advertised, it might lure me to sign on.....
       
      What are everyone's thoughts?

      Did anyone notice the video capture specs?

    • That's actually important information. If the Velvet can't get NR CA with a Sprint SIM, but can with a TMo one, that does indicate that the S21 may have something similar going on. At which point I don't think it's a matter of TMo wanting one way or the other. Rather, Sprint's core can't do NR CA because n41 was going to be the only band.
    • I agree. What differentiates the Everything Data plan from kickstart except hotspot and unthrottled data?    As for 5g I can get NSA 5g on a sprint sim (tna) but cannot get SA 5g unless I TNX and get throttled to 2.3 on video... Crazy.
    • I would say given the Everything Data plan wording and the premium price paid for Everything Data, you should have unthrottled.  If true, for me personally, this makes the purchase of any 5G phone from T-Mobile undesirable given that TNX is required to get 5G at all.  Where I live inside the Columbus Ohio beltway, the speed ranking is Sprint, then AT&T, then T-Mobile, then Verizon.  T-Mobile has improved, but not enough to change their ranking.  T-Mobile would likely win if they converted one of the two Sprint only sites near me to T-Mobile (no permits seen). The throttling should be validated against the physical network.  What happens if only band b25 is allowed so it is only on Sprint even with the TNX network?
    • Just drove by there today and SE03XC157 is back online. I guess the aforementioned wind storm temporarily knocked it offline.
    • Fast appears to be 20% slower than other speed tests... I have a 250 up and down fiber connect at home.. regularly at 270.   Just did a fast test twice... barely hit 200
