Two Nexus smartphones could be coming this year.

The Nexus 6 isn’t even half a year old yet, but already the rumor mill has begun turning its attention to its successor. Sources in China claim that Google has chosen a local manufacturer to build one variant of its next smartphone, and it seems Huawei best fits the bill.

What is likely to be one of Huawei’s most exciting smartphones of the year has been leaked ahead of its official unveiling, and it’s a stunner. The P8 has a large 5.2-inch Full HD display, but it’s the super slim bezels around it that will draw you in.

Huawei today announced its new Honor 6 Plus smartphone at an event in Beijing, and the device is already getting a lot of attention for having almost exactly the same name as Apple’s latest flagship.

Despite what you may think, however, this isn’t just another iPhone clone. Instead, it’s a flagship Android phablet with some impressive specifications, including an integrated coprocessor for fitness tracking, a massive battery, and two 8-megapixel rear-facing cameras that promise sharper images and some incredible features.

Huawei’s new Ascend G7 isn’t its only device that was inspired by the iPhone, it seems. At IFA 2014 in Berlin today, the Chinese company also announced a new phablet — the 6-inch Ascend Mate 7 — which has a one-touch fingerprint scanner that offers almost instant verification just like Apple’s.

It’s a midrange device that has some nice specifications, including a snappy 64-bit processor, a 13-megapixel camera, and a Huawei’s new Emotion 3.0 user interface.
