Is Huawei making another Nexus

Is Huawei making another Nexus smartphone?

New York, June 4 (IANS) While Android fans are eagerly waiting the new version of the operating system, a media report has hinted that a Nexus smartphone is in the making.

Multiple reports earlier this year said that Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC will build at least two devices for Google. But as per the new information, Chinese communication company Huawei seemed to have confirmed that it is working on at least one more Nexus-branded device after last year’s Nexus 6P, US-based tech website reported.

A Huawei executive for South Africa delved out the information while discussing last year’s Nexus 6P smartphone during an interview.

“The Nexus product is a very niche product, the techies love it, but there’s a very small number of people that buy it. Hence, Cellucity (mobile company) only brought 300 units into the country,” Huawei’s General Manager for the Consumer Business Group in South Africa Charlene Munilall was quoted as saying.

“The operators generally do not take up the Nexus device,” she continued.

Recently, Google Chief Executive Sundar Pichai had said that Google would continue to release Nexus devices. The software giant will not manufacture its hardware, but Google plans to be more involved with Nexus device.

Pichai noted that the future Nexus devices “may not run stock Android, but rather Google would focus on building in more software tweaks to Nexus devices”.
