Huawei is making another Nexus device, says company exec

<img src="" alt="Huawei is making another Nexus device, says company exec"/><p>Comments made by Huawei's Charlene Munilall to <a href="">Gearburn</a> in South Africa have kicked the Google Nexus rumour level up a notch. &quot;We're doing the Nexus again this year, by the way,&quot; Munilall said, as well as hinting a SIM-enabled <a href="">MateBook</a> was on the way.</p><p>With nothing else official from Google or Huawei to go off it would sound like Huawei is the chosen partner for at least one of the Nexus devices this year - that would be no surprise, considering the <a href="">Nexus 6P</a> was so well received.</p><p>But that contradicts <a href="">previous reports</a> that HTC was the company making both the midrange and high-end Nexus this year. Those reports are from reputable sources too, which makes us think both Huawei and HTC are plotting Nexus releases this year.</p><h3>Bump up the specs</h3><p>It's possible that Huawei's Munilall is talking about an upgraded version of the Nexus 6P, a theory that would tally with <a href="">the Geekbench benchmarks</a> we saw uploaded back in April: although the device name was listed as &quot;Google Nexus 6P&quot;, the internal specs didn't match the phone released last year.</p><p>Alternatively Munilall could be referring to a different kind of Nexus device altogether, though that seems unlikely. Whatever the truth, it's looking almost certainly that a new Huawei Nexus device of some description will be with us before 2017.</p><p>If Huawei is plotting a version 2.0 of the Nexus 6P or a brand new phone altogether, you can be sure it's going to have support for <a href="">Daydream</a>, Google's new VR platform. Huawei has already confirmed it has Daydream-ready hardware in the pipeline, which would be another reason to bring out an upgraded Nexus 6P.</p><ul><li><a href="">New Nexus 2016 release date, news and rumours</a></li></ul><p>Here's our video review of the excellent Huawei Nexus 6P:</p><mediainsert caption="null" mediatype="YouTube" height="315" src="" width="420">YouTube :><img src="" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
