Huawei has seemingly been confirmed as the manufacturer in line to build Google’s next Nexus smartphone.
This follows rumours last week that suggested Google would be working with both Huawei and LG for the 2015 Nexus line-up.
It seems, however, that Huawei will be picking up the reins on the smartphone, while LG will purportedly tackle Google’s next Nexus tab.
Huawei is Xiaomi’s biggest Android competitor in China right now, so it’s unsurprising Google wanted to get the company on board.
Huawei also has its own custom-built Kirin chip series, which means it can produce the processors for a Nexus smartphone in-house.
This means Google and Huawei won’t have to rely on a third-party, most notably US chip manufacturer Qualcomm.
It’s worth noting that Google has never worked with Huawei on a Nexus device before, so it will be interesting to see what the Chinese OEM can muster up.
Google will almost certainly make a much greater effort to wow consumers with the next batch of Nexus wares.
