We have a pretty intriguing new Nexus leak to share with you guys on this fine "hump" day. Supposedly, both the LG-made and the Huawei-made Nexus devices are going to include some of the same new features. According to @OnLeaks, both devices will include the new USB Type-C connector and fingerprint sensor.

This would hardly be news because we have heard these rumors previously; however, the leaked intel also revealed that both devices should feature front facing stereo speakers and a metal body. That's something we haven't heard before regarding the LG Nexus. The source of this intel even shared the dimensions of both devices:
  • LG Nexus = 146.9x72.9x8/9.8mm, 5.2" Screen
  • Huawei Nexus = 159.4x78.3x6.6/8.5mm, 5.7" Screen
Ultimately, the new Nexus generation is shaping up to be quite the forward-thinking pair of smartphones. We can't wait to see the final reveal for these devices!
