New Huawei Nexus smartphone powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 could be released in 2016

According to Chinese analyst Pan Jiutang, one of next year's high-end handsets that will be powered by the Snapdragon 820 could be a next-generation Huawei-made Nexus (which is unlikely to be unveiled before the second half of 2016). As you may know, this year's Nexus 6P is the first to be manufactured by Huawei, and the device has been well received by most customers.
Save for the fact that it should feature a Snapdragon 820 processor, there are no details about the alleged second-generation Huawei Nexus smartphone. However, we wouldn't be surprised if this turns out to be a large metal-made handset (just like the Nexus 6P, which is based on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 chipset).
Not long ago, we heard that Huawei might also be the maker of a new Nexus 7 tablet that's supposed to be released sometime in 2016, so things could get really interesting for the Chinese company come next year.

I will be returning my 6P just to get this 820 model, if this pans out to be true. Mainly because the performance takes a hit due to the higher temperatures on the current gen Nexus.

I am holding on to purchase any device with sd 810 or sd808.... Nexus 6p is huge, it is slightly bigger than my 6inch vivo xplay 3s... Google seriously need to slim down the bezels... by the time (next half of 2016) google will launch nexus 6p 2016, I might have purchased some other phone already... LG V10 is beautiful and the best phone available but it is also very huge. There is no need for a ticker display. It made the phone pretty tall. Both of these phones are bigger than my current xplay 3s... I hope lg will release G5 with the same design of V10 but without any ticker display

808 and 810 are not that bad IMO... I have no problems with the 808 in my 5X, and the phone is just great. It probably depends on how you use the phone... if you spend your time running antutu benchmarks, you'll see maybe lower scores than apple or samsung's best CPUs, but you shouldn't experience any problem during your daily usage... anyway, if those processors do bother you, just wait for the 820... I guess that in Q1 we'll see the first phones (while, of course, you'll have to wait a whole year to get a nexus with a new processor).

Yeah. I came from a KK ROM on my Z3C, and with my optimizations, I was getting a realistic estimation of a little over 11 hours sot. After I installed lollipop, the estimated sot dropped to a little over 10 hours. Standby is potentially better and it's way snappier, so I guess it's a balanced trade. But the standby gains won't be seen by most phones, as Sony excels in this department.

Um it should use the 830. Why is Google cheaping out? This current nexus should use the sd820.

I doubt the 830 will be available in Q3 2016, probably Q1 2017 There might be a 821 or 825 in Q3 2016, if Qualcomm go back to releasing a new flagship SoC every 6 months

Nokia will get free from contract binding in December 2016... How they can release a phone in 2016? they cant... I dont think they will launch any phone in 2016... this new CEO of microsoft has already fired all the talent of old nokia... I doubt that new nokia will have the same legendary hardware expertise

So basically a foxconn device? Because nokia no longer has any factories in its hand to turn out a device. Basically you will buy a Nokia phone that is made by another. Which if you read internal reports of the old nokia before MS stepped in, was half their problem of getting a phone to market fast.
