Earlier this month, we learned that the new Nexus smartphone coming from LG would be called the Nexus 5X and that it would be the follow-up to the company’s Nexus 5 from 2013. Up until now, the Huawei Nexus phablet had not yet revealed its final name. We’ve only known it by its codename — “Angler” — and simply as the Huawei Nexus. That has now changed, because we’re hearing the new phablet will be called the Nexus 6P.

It was pretty safe to assume that Huawei and Google would come up with a name to differentiate this new phablet from last year’s Motorola-made Nexus 6 (which is still on sale for just $350). We just didn’t know what they were going to call it. If this leaked name is to be believed, the question then arises as to why they’re calling it the Nexus 6P and not the Nexus 6X to align with the Nexus 5X.

One possible explanation is that Huawei has already been using the letter “P” as part of its usual naming scheme. This would be in line with why he had the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus from Samsung not too many years ago. Among the existing Huawei portfolio are phones like the P8, P8lite and P7 Sapphire Edition. If they are following what Huawei is already doing, then why isn’t the Nexus 6P called the Nexus Honor instead? Your guess is as good as mine.

As far as what we can expect from Huawei’s Nexus 6P, the current rumblings on the online grapevine are pointing toward a 5.7-inch display, a Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 64GB storage, a fingerprint reader on the back, USB Type-C connectivity and a couple of front-facing stereo speakers.

In any case, we won’t have to wait long to find out more about Google’s 2015 Nexus lineup, as both the LG Nexus 5X and the Huawei Nexus 6P are expected to make their debut before the end of the month. Which phone are you more excited about?
