With the rumoured release of the Nexus 6 (2015) on September 29 leaks are coming thick and fast about the upcoming phablet. A new set of images claiming to be of a protective case for the device apparently confirms the inclusion of a fingerprint scanner on the back.
With Android 6.0 Marshmallow putting fingerprint scanning front and centre, and Huawei – the rumoured manufacturer of the Nexus 6 (2015) – putting fingerprint scanners in its latest smartphones, it wouldn't be much of a surprise to see the new Nexus 6 do what the previous version didn't and include biometric security.
While the inclusion of a fingerprint scanner is good news, the images – which were posted by renowned leaker @OnLeaks on Twitter – also show a bulge where the camera will be located.
Battle of the bulge
This elevated section of the body, which is rumoured to protrude about 1.9mm, gives the Nexus 6 (2015) a distinctive look, though it's not one that everybody is fond of.
Although the bulge isn't to everyone's tastes, we'd like to imagine that the reason Huawei is going for this unconventional design is because it'll be packing some pretty exciting camera tech in the new handset, and hopefully we won't have long to find out if the bulge is worth it.
