A Leaker Suggests Two New Nexus Devices By HTC
Taiwanese handset manufacturer HTC may have been the first in line to usher in the Android race with the T-Mobile G1, but the company isn't exactly as strong as it once was during the advent of full touchscreen smartphones. However, as of late, HTC has been making giant strides in other departments. One great example of this is the company's partnership with Valve in creating the Vive VR headset. Now, according to rumors, the Taiwanese company is tapped by Google to make two Nexus devices.
According to popular and reputable leaker for HTC devices LlabTooFer of Twitter, HTC is tipped for two new Nexus devices. The rumor puts a bit of light to the sketchy news that has been surfacing regarding HTC-made Nexus devices. However, it's not at all surprising that the Taiwanese company will be set to make new Nexus devices. After all, HTC has been the search engine giant's first partner.
Reports suggest that the new addition in the Nexus lineup will apparently include 5-inch and 5.5-inch devices, further suggesting that Google will be continuing its two-size options for this year. It's also important to note that the search engine giant's decision to tap HTC for the next Nexus devices would mean that they could be a lot more similar as compared to the previous Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, which are designed by LG and Huawei, respectively. This means that Google might offer two identical devices, albeit options that would seem close to how Apple sells the current iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus variants.
However, further reports claim that the two new Nexus phones were of Huawei's to lose. The Chinese handset manufacturer has garnered huge success with the Nexus 6P, so it leaves everyone asking why Google wouldn't want to continue its budding relationship with Huawei.
