Huawei and Google rumored to be working on new Nexus smartphone, Chinese Android app store
Over the past couple of months, the online rumor mill kept spitting out Nexus rumors on a constant basis. Back in February, rumors first claimed that Google will launch two Nexus smartphones this year, one manufactured by Huawei, and one manufactured by LG. Since, the existence of a Huawei-made Nexus handset was allegedly confirmed by an anonymous Huawei UK employee, but no further details were shared at the time.
According to the new report, Google will help Huawei by allowing it to gain more recognition in Western smartphone markets such as the United States, markets of top priority where Huawei is currently struggling. This is what Huawei is supposedly getting out of building a Nexus smartphone this year. In return, the telecommunications giant will help Google with building an Android app store in China.
