Huawei to partner with Google and make the next Nexus, new rumors claim

Remember when we shared the rumors that China-based Huawei will be the next Nexus manufacturer? Initially, rumors claimed that Google might turn to a Chinese manufacturer for its 2015 Nexus lineup. Somewhat later, the rumor mill quickly pinpointed Huawei and South Korea-based LG to be the hardware partners of Google. 

Another source just claimed that Huawei has been indeed chosen as the maker of the next Nexus device. This piece of info comes straight from Kevin Yang, the director of China-based iSuppli, a local research firm. According to him, there are no doubts that the maker of the Ascend Mate7and the Ascend P7 will be responsible for the hardware of Google's 2015 portfolio.

Previously, we also heard that Google will be putting its faith into a manufacturer that can manufacture its own chipsets, something that Huawei is perfectly capable of with its own Kirin line of silicons.

Then again, there's no word about what kind of "device" we're dealing with - a tablet or a smartphone. We'd generally advise taking the rumors for the next Nexus with a lot of salt, but from the looks of it. What are you hoping for?
