Rumours of the next Google Nexus begin to appear

Google’s Nexus phones have always been intended to carry the best that Android can offer. Running completely unmodified versions of the operating system, you can experience Android as Google built it without any additions or preinstalled apps. Nexus devices are also the first to get Android updates.
The Nexus line began with Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus. LG then built the Nexus 4 and 5 before Motorola came along to build the 6-inch Nexus 6 phablet last year.
TechRadar reports that Huawei may now be lining up as the manufacturer of the next Nexus device. The Huawei Nexus is purported to have a 5.7-inch screen, making it a similar size to 2015’s flagship smartphones from rival brands. Interestingly, TechRadar also says that LG may be returning to make another Nexus device but it is unknown where this will fit in.
Google executives have reportedly been meeting with LG representatives in Korea to check on development of a device codenamed “N000”, apparently a successor to the Nexus 6. Of course, Google has already used the “Nexus 7” name on the Asus-built tablet from a couple of years ago so the title of this LG model is unknown.
Meanwhile, the Huawei Nexus is purported to be a smaller successor to the Nexus 5, slotting in between the 2013 Nexus 5 and 2014 Nexus 6. The 5.7-inch panel is expected to have a QHD resolution of 2560×1440, giving it a sharper pixel density than the larger Nexus 6 which has the same resolution.
The crux of this is that nobody is currently too sure about what Google will be unveiling for its Nexus line this year. Expected to launch around the third quarter as has happened historically, it does seem likely that both Huawei and LG are making devices but it is unknown where they will be positioned relative to the Motorola Nexus 6 and Google’s older Nexus devices.
