After a series of leaks and rumors for the new Nexus 6, the smartphone has been spotted on the Indian import export tracking website Zauba. This listing possibly points at the fact that the devices are being imported to India for testing and R&D purposes.
Series of listings from July to September indicate that Huawei shipped the device code named as Angler into the Indian shores. The listing further also points at a 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, LTE connectivity and a 5.5-inch display.
The smartphone has been imported from China to Bangalore, where the Huawei R&D is situated, so it’s not wise to assume Huawei and Google will be selling the new Nexus 6 in India anytime soon.
This leak contradicts the earlier ones, which said that the Huawei Nexus would be fitted with a 5.7-inch display while the LG Nexus 5 2015 will come with a smaller 5.2-inch display unit. That being said, we are assuming Huawei Angler refers to Nexus 6 based on the tweets by the serial leaker @onleaks
The Huawei Nexus was expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 820 but that seems unlikely since the new chipset will only make its way into devices by next year, which might prompt Huawei to opt for the Snapdragon 810 or the hexa-core Snapdragon 808. The new Nexus devices are expected to come with features like fingerprint scanner and USB Type-C along with a dual speaker setup.
Both the Nexuses will be unveiled on September 29th, and the launch will also clear the doubts we have with the Nexus naming convention and whether they will call the Huawei Nexus 6 (2015) or devise a slightly varied nomenclature by appending a ‘X’ tag.
