After the Nexus 6P phablet, the Chinese company could manufacture another device for Google, but this time it will be a Nexus tablet.

While the last two Nexus 7 tablet generations were developed by Asus, it looks like the next one will be made by another OEM. Since Huawei was the one behind the recently released Nexus 6P phablet, it would not be a surprise to see them joining Google for the next-gen Nexus tablet as well. In fact, that looks like a natural choice for Google right now.

According to a post spotted by Phone Radar on the Chinese platform Weibo, the next-gen Nexus 7 is already under development and Huawei shows its interest in making it available to the masses. Unfortunately, Google still has to confirm its choice, but there is little doubt that the third iteration of its affordable 7-inch Android slate will come out in 2016.

The Nexus 7 tablets made by Asus were followed by the premium Nexus 9 made by HTC. Previous rumors mentioned that LG is also interested in making the next-gen Nexus 7. Obviously, Google did not confirm any of these rumors yet, so we should take them all with a grain of salt for the time being.
