From a design standpoint, this is the most premium-looking Nexus we’ve seen since the original Nexus One all those years ago. Huawei’s taste for metal unibody phones shines through, with a phone that looks incredibly elegant despite its obvious large size. The aluminum chassis will come with a choice four different anodized finishes: Aluminum, Gprahite, Frost, and a Japan-exlusive gold. The only part which isn’t metal on the back is the slightly protruding camera hump. The phone measures in at just 7.3mm thin, 77.8mm wide and 159.4mm tall, making it smaller in every dimension than the current Nexus 6.

The 12.3MP rear camera is housed in a large pill-shaped glass panel along with a dual-LED flash. It’s also equipped with optical image stabilization and 4K video recording, along with an f/2.0 aperture to ensure low light pictures look as good as they can from a sensor this small. It also has pixels much bigger than standard smartphone cameras and can take 30fps bursts of photos to help create cool GIFs and choose the best pictures.
