Google Nexus 2016 Release Rumors: New Smartphone Will Be Powered By Qualcomm Snapdragon 821?

By on

Google could be adding the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset in its upcoming Google Nexus 2016 smartphone. Top chinese mobile developer Huawei is expected to take charge and develop the anticipated device.

Huawei supposedly announced that they will be working on the upcoming Nexus device for Google. An executive from Huawei has confirmed that they will still be working on Google?s next flagship smartphone labelled as Google Nexus 2016.

Huawei will be working on Google Nexus 2016?

Reports have indicated that Huawei could be making two new Nexus smartphones codenamed H1621 and H1622. It was previously reported that the prior Nexus 6P had model numbers H1511 and H1512. These similarities could be a sign that the current codes will supposedly be the new Nexus phones.

Huawei has apparently confirmed that it will be working on at least one more pair of Google Nexus device following the Nexus 6P. The announcement reportedly came from Charlene Munilall, general manager for Huawei?s Business Group in South Africa, at the launch of the P9, P9 Plus and P9 Lite on Thursday night, GearBurn reported.

Rumors have indicated that Google has long been planning on shutting down its Nexus program and is looking to build its own set of devices but Huawei supposedly associating with Google should trump the previous rumors.

It seems as though Huawei is not going to be a pushover to any of its competitors as it plans on becoming the world?s second-best manufacturer of smartphones.

On the other hand, earlier rumors have mentioned that HTC could also be partnering with Google to create a follow-up model for the Nexus 6P and that it has made some type of Nexus exclusivity deal in the next years, according to BGR.

Reports have stated that HTC will be directly dealing with Google to produce and design a follow-up model of the Nexus 6P. In the supposed agreement, Google required HTC to include elements of the HTC 10 into its Google Nexus 2016. This could mean that HTC might not start its deal with Google until Huawei finished the upcoming Google Nexus device. But whether or not Huawei and HTC will both be working on the device is still uncertain.
