At its event in San Francisco this morning, Google has finally taken the wraps off its latest Nexus smartphones. The larger of the two is made by Huawei, and marks the first time Google has partnered with a Chinese manufacturer for its Nexus smartphone. In every way, this is the flagship Nexus. From build quality and size, to screen quality and battery, this is the phone that all tech-hungry, pure Android aficionados will flock to…

Leaked press release reveals 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB Nexus 6P pricing across many regions
We pretty much know everything we think there is to know about the Huawei Nexus 6P ahead of its launch, thanks to multiple leaks and rumors. Until Google announces it however, none of the information can be treated as gospel. Including the latest leak which seemingly shows the price for each storage model across many regions.
As revealed previously, the Huawei 6P is going to launch in USA, UK, Canada, Japan, Australia, Korea, France, Germany and Hong Kong. A leaked press release somehow made its way online and shows all the pricing information, for all the regions it’s going to be available in at launch. In the US, the 32GB model will cost $499, with the 64GB costing $549, while the highest storage option will cost a handsome $649. For a flagship device, with the spec and premium design we’ve seen leaked, the pricing is very reasonable. For those in the UK like me, prices are £449, £499 and £579 respectively for the 32GB, 64GB and 128GB models.
If those prices are still a little to steep for you, and you want a great stock Android experience, you can still snag the current generation Nexus 6 for just $349 on Amazon. Once Android 6.0 Marshmallow arrives for it (allegedly on October 5th), it’ll look and feel like an up-to-date phone.

Huawei Nexus prototype leaked in photos, corroborates rumors of metal chassis and rear fingerprint sensor
Update: The same source has posted more images of the purported Huawei Nexus, this time showing the bottom half rocking a USB Type-C port. The new USB-C standard is reversible, meaning there isn’t a right-side up and the male side of the cable can be flipped on either side and it’ll still plug into the device. They’re also bidirectional, able to send data and power in either direction. Google announced during its I/O conference that it has been working closely with device manufacturers to introduce phones which take advantage of it.
The purported upcoming Huawei Nexus is one of this year’s biggest rumors so far. It would mark the first time we’ve seen Google partner with a Chinese manufacturer for its ‘Pure Google’ smartphone, and could help the search giant finally get its Play Services running in China. Despite seeing multiple rumors, schematics and leaks, we’ve not seen any real physical evidence of the device’s existence. Until now. Steve Hemmerstoffer has published a couple of photos to his blog showing off what looks to be a pre-release or prototype model of Huawei’s stock Android phone.
