Specifications of the rumoured Huawei Nexus phone have surfaced online, triggering excitement among fans.

Twitter spy OnLeaks has revealed that Huawei Nexus, which is slated to be launched later this year will measure 159.4 mm in length, 78.3 mm wide and 8.5 mm thick. This means the phone is likely to have around 5.7-inch size screen similar to the soon-to-be-released Galaxy Note 5.

He also revealed that Huawei Nexus will feature front speakers and house fingerprint sensor on the back, probably below camera module similar to 2013 model HTC One Max. It is also expected to boast a metal body and USB Type C port, which is set to become industry standard in 2016.
