Report: Huawei in Line to Make a New Google Nexus 2016 Phone

Google surprised many when it went for the less-known Chinese company Huawei for the hardware part of the Nexus 6P.

This, however, turned out to be a great choice as the company did not disappoint in any way, especially when looking at the design and performance aspects of the phone.

This year will see new Google Nexus 2016 phones come in to replace last year’s Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X. There have been reports that HTC will be at the heart of the hardware part as far as this year’s Nexus phones are concerned. In fact, reports have been rife that the Taiwanese company will be taking care of both handsets, unlike with the case last year where LG took care of the low-end Nexus 5X.

Other sources further claim that HTC has secured a deal with the search engine giant with respect to making the Nexus lineup for the coming few years. Apparently, this seems not to be the case as last year’s maker of the flagship Nexus 6P seems to be readying something new for this year with respect to the Google Nexus 2016 phones.

According to the latest reports surfacing from the South of Africa, a Huawei executive somehow slipped some vital information to Gearburn during an interview. While talking about why the Nexus 6P was not availed in the region, the region’s manager for consumer business group, Charlene Munilall, said that Huawei will be partnering with distributors (not carriers) to bring a new Google Nexus 2016 phone to South Africans.

“We are doing the Google Nexus again this year, by the way,” Munilall said. Even though not official, it is not usual for such bold words to come out of an executive of Munilall’s caliber. This is basically a confirmation that we will see a new Huawei-made Google Nexus 2016 phone come into play, which is contradicting previous reports that HTC will be in charge of everything.

As Android N release date nears, we expect to see the OS come in with a new series of Google Nexus phones to replace last year’s Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. However, it is only time that can tell.
