Could the Huawei Nexus be called the Nexus 6P?

Could the Huawei Nexus be called the Nexus 6P?
The rumors have continually indicated that this year's LG Nexus will be called the Nexus 5X, and now we have a new rumor putting a new name to the expected Huawei Nexus: the Nexus 6P. We can't verify whether or not this is true, but if it is, we need your help brainstorming what that "P" may stand for.

The rumored name comes from a "reliable source" close to Droid Life, but it should be made clear that the names Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P may not be final, and may simply be internal names to help differentiate them from the older Nexus 5 and 6 devices. With the Nexus 5X, it should be pretty clear that we're living in 1998 and the "X" stands for XTREME!, but we're not so sure about the "P" in Nexus 6P. It would seem redundant that it stands for "phablet". Maybe Google is going the way of Apple and Samsung and it stands for "plus".

Whatever the name means, we should be finding out soon enough as the new Nexus devices are expected to be announced at the end of this month.

So, let us know what you think the "P" stands for in the comments!

Why not just name Nexus 5 2015 & Nexus 6 2015 ? Stop giving stupid names to nexus series.

it'll probably be plus. but if i could name it, it would be the Nexus 6 Presiege. it would have Quad HD, with SD card slot and removable battery. thats what people want. they dont get that.

That's not what the average consumer wants. The average consumer wants a phone that looks good and feels good in the hand.

Huawei's flagship line is the P series...I thought that was obvious.

How about "Pressure" because they surprise us with the pressure-sensitive screen?

If it stands for Plus then all Apple fans will be laughing.

I'm thinking the "P" stands for "Putrid." It's almost like they hired some of Motorola's old designers for that fugly camera hump. Not sure I want to go down to a 5.2" screen, but I can't imagine owning a Huawei, especially one that ugly, so LG Nexus it is.
