Google’s Android M will be officially launched this fall, which means that we can expect a new Nexus device soon.
This could in turn make Huawei’s Nexus the first device to have the Google Play Store pre-loaded in China. Rumors that Huawei will produce the new Nexus have been spreading since February.
In the mould of generations of Nexus devices, Nexus 7 is set to feature Android in its purest form.
As months have come and gone, more rumors on the next Nexus smartphones piled up, which suggest that Google has yet to decide whether there will be two phones released under its brand this year or just one.
How will both the companies benefit from this collaboration?
Google will reportedly help Huawei strengthen its foothold in the Western markets, including the United States where the Chinese company is still struggling.
According to rumors, Huawei Nexus Smartphone is dubbed as “Angler“. Not the the latest models from other manufacturers don’t also run the latest platform but the Nexus is exclusively managed by Google including the design, development, support, and marketing.
Earlier, Google had partnered with global tech giants like Samsung, LG, HTC and most recently, Motorola to develop Nexus phones which are the closest indications of what the Android OS can offer. Its release will apparently coincide with when Google Play Store apps will be available to download in China. “It is expected to have a 5.2-inch display, will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 or Snapdragon 808 chip, 3GB of RAM, USB Type C port and a fingerprint scanner”.
