The last year's Google Nexus 6P was one of the most powerful smartphones of 2015. Powered by Google and produced by Huawei, the Nexus 6P created its own success story and received good review for its strong array of specifications and features. Even though the Nexus 2015 is just about 6 months old, Huawei and Google seems to have already started prepping to come up with the new iteration of the smartphone. After all, with the fast changing technical specs trend, companies have to update their product with new specs to stay in competition.

Rumors have it that Huawei is working on new age Nexus 6P, with bumped up specifications. Following several leaks, the Nexus 6P phone has once again been spotted, this time on GeekBench that puts light on its possible specifications. Here we take a look at the rumored specifications of the upcoming Nexus smartphone:
Similar design and display
Considering that Nexus 6P along with the 5X came with new design language, we doubt if the company will bring about changes in design of the new Nexus 6P. We expect the Nexus 6P 2016 to adorn a similar premium, metallic housing, with 5.7-inch QHD quality display just like the current version.
Bumped up chipset and storage capacity:
Last year's Nexus 6P brought the best hardware specs at the time of its launch. However it seems like the company is now planning to replace the Snapdragon 810 SoC and 3 GB of RAM with Snapdragon 820 clocked at 1.59 GHz, paired with Adreno 530 graphics and 4GB of RAM. The new hardware specifications will be stronger and more powerful than the Nexus 6P (2015).
The Nexus 6P adorned a superb rear-facing camera with 12.3MP sensor, f/2.0 aperture, laser autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) flash, HD video recording, and more, paired with an 8 MP front facing snapper with f/2.4. There is not any information about the camera detail in the upcoming Nexus smartphones, however we expect the optical specs to either be similar, considering Google did bring about major changes in the camera department, or improve it further.
Nexus gets direct software support from Google, and is known for bringing the freshest Android OS iteration on board. Knowing that Google will announce the Android N at its I/O soon, there is no doubt about it that the upcoming Nexus smartphones will be shipped with the N version.
The last year's Nexus smartphones come with fingerprint scanner that is pretty fast and accurate, and USB Type C reversible charging port. The new age Nexus smartphone should also come equipped with these features, besides flaunting extras. Moreover, there should be a non-removable battery with improved quick charging and battery saving modes than the Nexus 6P (2015).
