Close-up of claimed Huawei Nexus 6 revealed in video leak

Huawei Nexus 6

Huawei has long been rumoured to be one of the manufacturers working on the next round of Nexus devices.

Lending credence to that theory is a new video that purports to show the unconfirmed Huawei Nexus 6.

The video, which was posted to Twitter by prolific – and oft-reliable – rumour-spinner OnLeaks, displays a mysterious black handset up close.

Check it out:

What’s more, the video appears to show that the device has a fingerprint scanner positioned below the camera.

That supports earlier theories that the Nexus 6 will carry a biometric scanner for improved security.

Back at this year’s I/O developer conference, Google revealed that its upcoming Android M would focus heavily on fingerprint authentication.

As such, it would make sense that the company’s flagship smartphones, which will likely debut with Android M on board, will feature fingerprint scanners.

It’s also worth noting that the handset in the video appears to be quite large, which matches rumours that Huawei is building a 5.7in device for Google’s Nexus program.

We should also mention that Google has just confirmed LG as a Nexus producer to the Korea Times – LG is reportedly building the 5.2in Nexus 5.

We’ve yet to receive official confirmation from either Google or Huawei regarding a Nexus 6 just yet. Stay tuned.

Google and Microsoft are making two flagship devices each of similar proportions and probably fairly similar specs, both to debut their newest mobile operating systems, and both expected to be released in the same time frame.

looks like the USB port is either on the sides or missing entirely based on the pogo-pins visible at 0:05 on the bottom edge...

possible "Poseidon" on the back (0:03) might mesh with previous aquatic themed names of previous Nexus handsets (hammerhead, manta etc.) but isn't a fish specifically...
