For quite a while now, Huawei has been producing some of the coolest smart phones packed with a bunch of great features. Today, in the technology marketplace where there a plethora of brands trying to outdo each other and gain a large share in the market place, Huawei, although a relatively lesser known brand has been successful in grabbing the attention of the smart phone users. The Chinese company has specially carved a niche in the affordable smart phone segment and has been one of the leading brands to offer phones that are loaded with cutting edge features.
Recently, the company has been at the centre of the attention as millions of smart phone users around the world are eagerly awaiting for the official word from the company regarding manufacturing of next Nexus phone. The rumours have been rife that Huawei is set to produce the Nexus phone. If these rumours come true, this would be a landmark achievement for the company.
According to the recent reports, Huawei is most likely to build the new Nexus device. Though many did speculate Huawei to be the next Nexus-maker, it was not the only one being talked about. The rumours also suggest Xiaomi and Lenovo are also favourite contenders to grab the deal of producing Nexus phones.
The information available about the production of Nexus phones are not backed any strong evidence. Having said that, the reports it would not be wise to completely disapprove or ignore these reports as the news comes from iSuppli, one of the leading Chinese research firms. If you have been following tech news recently, you would know that Huawei recently launched a smart watch powered by Google’s Smart watch OS at the recently concluded MWC (Mobile World Congress). Therefore, a Huawei Nexus device many not come in as a huge surprise.
There is no clarity yet on whether the device will be a phone or a tablet. But, we can probably expect it to be a phone as Huawei is unknown in the tablet segment, at least for now. Moreover, according to the latest reports, the device may ship with the upcoming Android 6.0. But again, the statement lacks a strong base.
Right from the earliest version of Nexus launched way back in January 2010 to the recent Nexus 6, the series has been tagged as one of the best, placing it in line with the likes of iPhone and the mainstream Samsung devices. Below is a comparison of all the nexus devices till date.
