Barely few months ago we heard the rumors that Google might consider Chinese manufacturers for its next Nexus device. Now in the latest development, reports have surfaced that it will be collaborating with Huawei for the next Nexus. It would gradually result in replacing Motorola’s Nexus 6, new leaks about Huawei’s Nexus have surfaced online and they give a good glimpse of what the future device would consist of.
Chinese website, Gizmo China, has unleashed some information about the device. As per the leak, the device will feature a Samsung-built 5.7-inch OLED display with a resolution 1440 x 2560 pixels. So far, Huawei has until now, resisted form using 2K displays even in its premium flagships, as the company was of the view that it is not necessary, but these leak specs hint about the change. Yesterday, specs of Huawei’s Mate 8 phablet surfaced online, and it as well comes specced with a 2k display.
Huawei has until now integrated its devices with home-grown Hi-Silicon Kirin chip, but with the Nexus, the company seems to be taking a route to Snapdragon 810 chipset. We are keeping our fingers crossed that Google should use the improved Snapdragon 810 version, which is used in the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro, as it is less prone to over heating and gives better performance.
Unfortunately, only these many specs were revealed in the Huawei Nexus leak and it seems that Google might also chip in 4GB of RAM inside the next Nexus, but that has not been confirmed yet.
In the past, rumor grapevine was also blooming with the news that Google is might collaborate with LG this time, as LG was the manufacturer of Nexus 4 and Nexus 5, but Huawei has taken the charge this time. But things are not over for LG in the Nexus segment, as it might take up the next Google tablet or a Nexus 8 or a third generation Nexus 7 maybe. It would be interesting to see that at what price Huawei launches the Nexus device.
Everything still stands at the rumour pedestal, the veil shall be blown at the Google I/O 2015 conference.
