The way things are going, Google isn’t going to have very much to tell us on September 29th other than everything we’ve heard is true. We already know the upcoming Huawei smartphone is going to be called the Nexus 6P and we already know that it’s going to come in four different colors. The latest leak has confirmed a couple of other key details for us, including a fairly massive battery for the upcoming Marshmallow-flavored phablet.

According to a leaked slide from the upcoming Nexus 6P presentation, the new phablet is going to be “the first all-metal Nexus flagship smartphone.” You get metal for the entirety of the body, including the unsightly black camera hump on the back, plus Gorilla Glass 4 for the screen. Google describes Gorilla Glass 4 as “an extremely resistant material.”

From what we can gather, this presentation isn’t necessarily the one that we’ll see on Tuesday, but rather it’s part of a marketing package that could be geared toward retail partners and representatives.

Leak Confirms Nexus 6P All-Metal Body, 3450mAh Battery

Making our way through the rest of deck, several more details related to the Nexus 6P are effectively confirmed. Most of these had already been stirring around the rumor mill, like the 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 quad HD display, the Snapdragon 810 v2.1 chip, the USB Type-C connector and the dual front-facing speakers. We also see that there will be a 3450 mAh battery to power this beast of a smartphone.

Despite being quite sizable in stature, the “light, compact feel” of the Nexus 6P is achieved with a “slim and sleek” design that weighs just 184 grams. By comparison, we’re hearing that the LG-made Nexus 5X will tip the scales at 175 grams. The original Nexus 5 from 2013 and last year’s Motorola-made Nexus 6 are 130 grams and 184 grams, respectgively.

Other highlights include a camera with better low-light performance, the official names for the different colors, and the various features to accompany Android Marshmallow.
