New details of the Huawei-made Nexus have emerged courtesy tipster OnLeaks, who in a tweet has claimed that the handset will feature a 5.7-inch display, front-facing speakers, and will pack USB Type-C, possibly the 3.0 version.

In line with earlier leaks, the tipster also claims that the next Nexus smartphone will include a fingerprint scanner; though the tipster adds that the fingerprint reader will be housed on the rear panel, unlike the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The purported dimensions of the Huawei-made Nexus are 159.4x78.3x6.6mm, while the handset is said to measure 8.5mm at its thickest point.

In the meanwhile, one of the most reliable tipsters on the Internet, @evleaks (or Evan Blass) shared an image of a Huawei smartphone without branding featuring Force Touch technology. Notably, the image shared by Blass shows the handset's rear housing a fingerprint scanner further cementing the possibility that it might be the Nexus smartphone.
