Huawei-made Google Nexus smartphone anonymously confirmed by a Huawei UK employee

Huawei-made Google Nexus smartphone anonymously confirmed by a Huawei UK employee
In the past couple of months, there has been a lot of talk about the fact that Google might have partnered with Huawei to launch a new Nexus phablet at some point later in the year. According to a new report, an employee of Huawei UK has anonymously confirmed these rumors. 

According to the source of the report, the Huawei Nexus smartphone will launch later this year. Unfortunately, the anonymous Huawei employee shared no other details about the handset other than the fact that it's actually happening.

Previous rumors suggested that the Huawei Nexus, allegedly codenamed 'angler', will come with a 5.7-inch display running a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels (Quad HD), and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset.

Allegedly, the Huawei 'angler' Nexus handset is very important to the manufacturer's ambition of penetrating the US market. Huawei currently sells a few of its smartphones in the US, but although some tech-savvy customers are already familiar with the company's smartphone offerings, Huawei has yet to become a well-established smartphone brand on US soil. Partnering with Google to launch a Nexus smartphone will certainly help Huawei getting some acknowledgment as a 'proper' smartphone market in the country.

Rumors suggest that Google will actually release two Nexus smartphones this year. Aside from the Huawei-built device, word on the interwebs is that LG will launch its third Nexus smartphone this year, following the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 5, two of the most beloved Nexus smartphones in the history of the line-up. If the rumors turn out to be accurate, the new LG-made Nexus handset will adopt a smaller form factor, and will launch with a 5.2-inch display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset on board.

At the moment, we don't have any concrete evidence to back up these rumors, such as leaked benchmark results, leaked pics, or trademark registrations, so make sure to digest them with a dose of skepticism.

Really should be the other way around. Nexus 5 P8 and a Nexus 6 G4. What's wrong with Google these days? Poor moves since after the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 FHD.

That's one thing that Google always does right, they use the best soc available. The Nexus 6 used the SD805 even though Motorola never did. Both the Huawei and LG versions will use the 820 if available by then. So it makes sense if the Nexus 5 2015 is a P8 variant and the Nexus 6 2015 is an LG G4 or G4 pro variant. Makes no sense to have it the other way around.

What are you talking about? Motorola never used the 805? Ever heard of the Droid Turbo/Moto Maxx?

Forget about the S820, I want the mighty extreme beast Arm A72x8 CPU.

I went from the Nexus 5 to the G4. It's very much like a bigger Nexus 5 and not unwieldy by any stretch. I can absolutely see this form factor for the N5 2015. No reason to change the design language. And if the screen is 5.2, it may actually make the device a little smaller. I can't wrap my head around LG making the phablet version at all.

6gb Ram Forget about the crappy slow S810 or 820, behold for the super Arm A72. Intel i3 powered CPU.

Motorola's attempt wasn't bad. They just shafted the Moto X in the process as a modest phone.

I think Huawei will nail it, an affordable Nexus flagship filling the footsteps of Nexus 5 would be a blessing to geeks IMO.
