Huawei manager let slip in an interview that the company may be involved with the successor to the Nexus 6P.

Straight from the mouth of Huawei Consumer Business Group manager Charlene Munilall, the Chinese manufacturer may once again be designing another upcoming Nexus device. Munilall made the quick casual comment "We are doing the Nexus again this year, by the way" during a launch event for the Huawei P9 in South Africa.

GearBurn has also theorized that this could be the reason why the Nexus 6P has not yet officially launched in South Africa as a newer refresh may be on the way. The Nexus 6P is currently on sale in North America for just $420 to suggest that retailers may be clearing stock as well. Still, Google and Huawei have yet to make any public announcements of a major project currently in the works. It's possible that the blurb may be a false claim as there have been rumors that HTC will be producing the new generation of Nexus devices instead with the codenames "Marlin" and "Sailfish" for the two unannounced models.

In our review of the Nexus 6P, we praised its brisk and unmodified Android OS as well as its reliable wireless connectivity, great camera, AMOLED display, and good colors and contrast. The non-expandable memory, throttling under heavy loads, and somewhat middling battery life were discovered to be some of its key downsides.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
