New trademark suggests Huawei is planning its own successor to the Google Nexus 6P

New trademark suggests Huawei is planning its own successor to the Google Nexus 6P
_
The Google Nexus 6P is widely regarded as one of the best smartphones of recent times. Even in the presence of revered new handsets like Samsung's Galaxy S7, the device is a great credit to maker Huawei. The company's rampant rise to prominence shows no sign of slowing down any time soon, though it doesn't look like the firm will be recommissioned by Google for another Nexus this year. Even so, Nexus 6P fans may yet get a sequel, given that the Chinese outfit has just trademarked the 'Huawei 7P' moniker. 

New trademark suggests Huawei is planning its own successor to the Google Nexus 6P
It's not unusual for trademarks to be registered and inventions patented, only to amount to nothing. But with the Nexus 6P held in such high regard, in many was it would be foolish of Huawei not to press ahead with a spiritual sequel. 

Given the various attributes of the Google Nexus 6P, it's probable that any Huawei 7P would be equally well-equipped. As such, a top-tier processor and 4+ gigs of RAM would be expected, along with a quad-HD display measuring within phablet territory. 

Speaking of which, we'd love to see a secondary, smaller configuration of this probably-not-gonna-happen-fantasy-device. The 5.7-inch 1440 x 2560 panel of the Nexus 6P is both big and beautiful, but not everybody wants a phablet. The Nexus 5X plays the role of second-in-command for Google, though away from its mere size, it lacks the cutting edge of the beastly 6P. Should Huawei press ahead with an upgrade on the 6P, diversifying the size options would certainly help to broaden its market appeal. 

What features would you like to see from a 'Huawei 7P'? Let us know in the comments!

I still think that the G5 is what a Nexus 5P would have been, except with the 820 inside.

Interesting possibility! If it had a Snapdragon 820, a QHD display and a fingerprint sensor, I just might bite.

I want a 6 inch americanized phone from Huawei. You say not everyone wants a phablet. Not everyone wants a little phone that costs a lot. Just because the professional reviewer class in the USA wants little phones that fit in their skinny jeans and tee shirts, doesn't mean that 5.7 inches should be the max. I have a Huawei Mate 8 that I got from Amazon with a 6 inch screen that thankfully now has the bands for ATT. But it takes some work to get it configured. We want a 6 inch or bigger screen, lightweight phone like the Mate 8, or the P8Max for our $800, not another 5 incher like everyone else makes already.

Although I love my Nexus 6P, I think it would be better if Google just manufactures the next Nexus phones themselves like they did the Pixel-C. No more compromises with hardware/technology/design choices, better hardware build/construction and better overall software/hardware synergy. Mic dropped...

Actually the 6P is the best built quality in a Nexus phone yet. Huawei got it right.

I totally agree that the 6P has the best build quality of any Nexus to date, but imagine the next Nexus devices, one the same size as the 6P, the other smaller, as in the 5X, with the same build quality and design style as the Pixel-C, with updated internals (Snap Dragon 820, 4GB memory, USB-C, wireless Qi charging, the same or better camera with optical image stabilization, front-firing stereo speakers, and yes water proofing!!) My money is as good as Google's.
