Huawei Nexus pictures show off metal device with a giant camera bump

Huawei logoIf you've been out of the loop, the rumors say Google plans to launch two Nexus phones this year: a 5.2-inch device from LG and a 6-inch phablet from Chinese OEM Huawei. Last week we saw a convincing leak of the 5.2-inch LG device, and this week it's apparently Huawei's turn. Today Google+ user Tiesen Fu has posted some pictures of the Huawei device, and just like with the LG Nexus, the pictures match previous renders pretty well. The device has the usual "Nexus" logo emblazoned on the back in a giant font, and just like the LG Nexus device, there's a circle for a fingerprint reader just above the logo.The most eye-catching feature on the rear is the huge black camera bump that runs the horizontal length of the device. The picture of the device with a case on (third in the gallery) suggests that the camera bump sticks out a great deal, reminding us of the Nokia 808 PureView.

Also judging from the case, only a very small area of the black strip contains important sensors that need to be exposed. We see a camera, LED flash, and mystery third sensor that looks a lot like the laser autofocus sensor on the LG Nexus and other LG phones. From what we can tell, Huawei has never shipped a device with a laser autofocus sensor, but there's a first time for everything.

The front of the device, like the LG Nexus, is heavily influenced by the Nexus 6. There are top and bottom speaker grills, and with no other markings, it looks like there will again be on-screen system buttons. The big upgrade this device will have over the other Nexus devices is the metal case.

The device is a bit... ugly. Earlier renders used a more complementary color for the camera bump (like white) which drew much less attention to it. The renders also colored the bottom plastic window white, but here it has been switched to the same color as the body, which looks great. Maybe by release time they'll switch the top to match, too.
