A common trend among Nexus smartphones is that the device will generally be based on one of the devices the manufacturer has made earlier that year – this was definitely true for the Nexus 4, based on the LG Optimus G, and the Nexus 5, based loosely on the LG G2. We’ve been hearing quite a lot of chatter that suggests Huawei will be the manufacturer of this year’s Nexus smartphone, and if true, this Huawei Nexus smartphone will be based on the Ascend Mate 8.
The Ascend Mate 8 isn’t expected to be released until northern Fall this year, but you can sort of see how this would be a good fit for what we’ve heard of the device so far. What we think we know so far is that the Huawei Nexus would be packing a Snapdragon 810, 5.7-inch 2K display, which does appear to fit the form factor that the Ascend Mate 8 would fall into. We’ve still got a while yet before we know who the potential manufacturer might be, but who ever it is, it looks like it’s going to be a pretty stellar device.
