Google's Nexus 6P Revealed in Leak

By James O Malley on at

Google's next phablet will be, umm, super ugly, if these leaks are anything to go by.

According to Android Police the company will next Tuesday be announcing two new phones: The Nexus 5X, the much awaited 4.7 inch follow-up to 2013's Nexus 5, and the Nexus 6P, which you can see above in an image obtained by the site.

The latter is being built by Huawei and sports a 5.7 inch screen running at 1440p, and also appears to feature a front-facing speaker, just like last year's Nexus 6 which it is to replace. It is also expected to run on a Snapdragon 810 processor and switch out Micro USB for the burgeoning USB-C standard.

As AP notes though, what is perhaps most notable is the unusual black stripe across the back of the device. On the left is obviously the camera and the flash, though it unclear whether the rest of the black area is merely decorative, or hides something like a fingerprint sensor.

We'll no doubt find out next Tuesday when Google is expected to make the new phones official. We're also hoping to see a new Chromecast too. [Android Police]
