Huawei Is Making Another Nexus Device – Are We Getting A Nexus 6P Refresh?
Huawei bedazzled the Android smartphone universe, especially those who possess an affinity towards Nexus phones, with its premium-built Nexus 6P. Now, the Chinese OEM is intending on releasing another smartphone that is going to be running stock Android on it.
Huawei Executive States That Another Nexus Is On The Way – Could It Feature The Same Name But Different Hardware
A statement (given below) made by Huawei's Charlene Munilall gives way to significant information that Huawei could be prepping the next Nexus. Unfortunately, rumor also has it that HTC is going to be producing the next family of devices that sport Google’s stock Android platform. Now, the reason why we say unfortunately is because HTC and Huawei both have their contributions when it comes to releasing premium handsets, so the question now begs; who is going to be rolling out the successor to the Nexus 5X, and who is going to release a device that will take the reins from Nexus 6P.
“We're doing the Nexus again this year, by the way.”
The fact that this is going to be successor could mean that it is going to be called Nexus 7P, but let’s not let our imaginations run wild. A while back, it was reported that Nexus 6P popped up on Geekbench but instead of featuring a Snapdragon 810’s octa-core processor, the device sported a quad-core processor with frequencies that matched that of a Snapdragon 820’s custom Kryo CPU, giving rise to belief that a name change might not be implemented at all.
One of the things that we desperately want to see from the next Nexus is a camera upgrade from a software point of view. Both Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P feature amazing camera upgrades with the ability to record 4K videos, slow-motion videos, but when it came to manual camera controls to really bring up the quality of the images, it just wasn’t there.
With smartphone cameras improving, companies like LG and Samsung have added numerous ways on how users can significantly upgrade the quality of their videos and images through software updates alone and we plead to Google that they should really get their dexterous developers to start working on this as soon as possible.
What upgrades, both hardware and software do you feel that the next Nexus from Huawei should come armed with? Let us know your thoughts immediately.
