HTC and Google
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 HTC supposedly associating with Google should trump the previous rumors, PhoneArena shared.
Google earlier partnered with the tech company to make the Nexus 9 tablet but was supposedly ?wasn?t much of a hit? compared to the Nexus 7 with Asus, so it should come as a surprise that they plan on partnering again. Aside from HTC and Asus, Google also previously teamed up with Huawei last year to create the Nexus 6P phablet while they took the Nexus 5X to LG, TechRadar reported.
Nexus T50 and T55?
According to PhoneArena, ROM developer revealed in Twitter details about the supposed Nexus devices that HTC will develop. The developer, named @LlabTooFeR who has shared ?accurate tips? about the tech company in the past, unveiled the codenames for the two new Nexus phones.
The 5-inch model is supposedly codenamed T50 while the 5.5-inch model is codenamed T55. Details about the upcoming devices are still up in the air, but we can expect them?to double their work and make a better device than the previous Nexus 9 tablet.
The three-year contract between HTC and Google will reportedly revolve around a device with 5-inch and 5.5-inch variants that will feature Google?s upcoming Android 7.0 mobile OS and a ?pressure sensitive display? much like Apple and its 3D Force Touch, TechnoBuffalo shared.
