Well a Chinese website is reporting that Huawei one will be postponed to next year as Huawei is working on a dual edge phone. So if it is indeed postponed than we might see the 820 making its way to this Nexus. Else if it is released this year we might see an 810 under the hood.

810 will be a bad choice, rather the Kirin 950 is excellent, close performance but without the throttle strangling the clockspeed. I'd rather wait than having the 810, that completely turned me off from the OPT in the first place.

Wonder if we'd see force touch, Huawei has the technology running in their Mate S ( you lose Apple :p ): Huawei brings Force Touch to its phones before Apple | The Verge

Well it seems Huawei model will come with 3GB RAM. So LG one might be 2GB. And the Huawei one is priced damn high. Zauba lists a device named "Angler" which is supposed to be the code name for the HUawei Nexus.

Specs: FOXCOMM HYNIX 3 GB RAM SAMSUNG32GB EMMC LTE.
Price 44975.

This price will go down when ordered in bulk, still I think this phone is going in the 38-40k range

Ow man this Huawei nexus looks so ugly. Though that lg one is looking decent and I am holding out for this and Moto x Style.

As long as the 32GB N5 comes under 25k everything is fine. 64GB should come at max 28k. Any more and it will lose out to Moto X Style.

Bring it on. I have money in my hands just give me the reason to spend it.
Pray the camera turns out good. I just did a ghetto mod on my G2 lens cover and it's taking fantastic pics, better than before. If the camera isn't that good then I'm not spending close to 30k on a SD808 device just for android M and fingerprint scanner.

That is what worries me as well. I hope we saw a wide aperture camera like the lights of G4. Even if it is close I will be happy coz initial reviews of Moto X shows that it ain't performing well in low light.

I saw a video review of the moto x style camera. Except low light without flash the camera is good. It performs poorly only at low light without flash. Beats the OPT camera hands down.

I am more inclined towards the Moto X Style. I can live without the fingerprint scanner and the practicality and functionality of moto suite is awesome.

If LG puts in a lower resolution G4 camera with all the features in N5 I'll buy it eyes closed. G4 had undoubtedly one of the best if not the best camera in today's world. Don't care about megapixels.

They should compensate for no 50$ play store credit here with 50$ (~= Rs 3300) worth of IEMs, Powerbank, etc. Amazon.in gift voucher would also work.
