After the Chinese manufacturer's Nexus smartphone got leaked nearly in its entirety yesterday, today Huawei's spoken up about the Nexus 6P. Google's breaking past traditions this time around since we're expecting two Nexus devices. One of these will be manufactured by LG, and the other by Huawei. And today, seems like the Chinese manufacturer has confirmed that tomorrow you should expect a Huawei device, for sure.
Huawei Confirms Being OEM To Latest Google Nexus Devices
When it comes to the Nexus devices, Google's chosen plenty of manufacturers during the lineup's history. The software giant's list of partners includes the likes of Samsung, Motorola, LG and others, but this year Google seemed eager to give some other manufacturers a chance. In a move that's being described by many as an attempt to gain greater penetration into the Chinese app sphere, Google and Huawei will be partnering up for this year's Nexus smartphone, also being dubbed as the Nexus 6P for now.
Today, Huawei's terminal spokesman claims that the Chinese manufacturer will be one of the OEMs for this year's Nexus devices, so if you were looking for any further confirmation for a Nexus smartphone from that end of the world, things should be crystal clear now. Apart from Huawei being a Nexus OEM, Mr. Yu Chengdong didn't provide any further details on the nature of partnership between the two.
Huawei's Nexus 6P is expected to come with a 5.7 inch screen with 2560 x 1440 screen resolution. Its expected to showcase several of Android Marshmallow's features as well, that include enhanced power management, improved app permissions and better accessibility options. The device is also expected to come feature v2.1 of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, which should be a source of unease to several users.
Qualcomm's SoC has been the center of several throttling issues, which have led to severe losses for companies such as HTC. In fact, there have been only a few Snapdragon 810 devices out there that have managed to solve throttling completely, with Sony's latest Xperia Z5 lineup being said to be one of them. But has Huawei managed to tackle the 810 beast? Only time will tell. Luckily for us, this year's Nexus devices are due to be launched in less than a day from now, so stay tuned for all the updates and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
