Google has reportedly called on HTC to make this year's Nexus phones, the flagship Android handsets designed to showcase the platform at its best. HTC has built Nexus hardware in the past but not for a couple of years.
Google unveiled several new devices during its live event today. Alongside its new Nexus smartphones, the company also revealed a large, keyboard-equipped Android tablet to rival Microsoft's Surface as well as a new-look, next-generation Chromecast.
As was widely rumoured, Google today announced its new Nexus 5X and 6P smartphones, built by LG and Huawei respectively. The phones are the first devices to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow and are intended to show off the best that the platform can offer.
Google has begun sending out press invitations to a San Francisco event later this month where it is widely expected to reveal the next-generation of Nexus-branded smartphones. The highly-anticipated handsets will this year be built by LG and Huawei.

One of the key features of the recently-announced Android L is 'Project Volta' which aims to boost the battery life of Android devices by tidying up the operating system in a variety of ways to preserve power as best as possible — something it achieves.
If Apple TV, Roku, Netfix, and all the other Internet streaming TV set top box isn't enough, then here comes one more. Unsurprisingly (or perhaps surprisingly) Google has been working on a set-top box to enable Internet capability on existing TV sets.
The US mobile market is dominated by Apple and Samsung. Earlier this year, Google decided to take a piece of the pie with the Nexus line. First with the Nexus 7 tab and now the Nexus 4 and 10 editions. It appears Amazon may be wanting in as well.
