We’ve had rare glimpses of what is supposed to be the Huawei Nexus 6, however we’ve always assumed that it would be close to a 6-inch display, hence the Nexus “6” – rumours have always suggested it would be 5.7-inches. However, the latest report which details a Zauba shipping listing which shows a “Huawei Angler” entering India with a 5.5-inch display – for those who don’t remember, “Angler” is the internal codename for the Huawei Nexus device at Google.
This is a very unusual revelation, not that a Nexus 6 can’t be 5.5-inches, but because that makes the LG Nexus 5 and Huawei Nexus 6 quite similar in size – the LG Nexus 5 is expected to be 5.2-inches and quite large at that screen size. The other explanation for this could be that the Huawei Nexus 6 is supposed to be marketed as a premium device, whereas the LG Nexus 5 is supposed to be a lower-cost device with respectable hardware. That seems unlikely, but we’re just trying to understand what’s going on.
