HTC to Manufacture Nexus Devices for the Next Three Years – Report



A month after launching the Huawei made Nexus 6P and LG made Nexus 5X, there are few rumors are suggesting the next Nexus devices to come from HTC. While LG has confirmed that there are no plans to manufacturer next gen Nexus devices, Huawei is keen to stay as one of the Nexus OEM. Now the latest reports suggest that HTC has made a deal with Alphabet, which owns Google to manufacturer the Nexus devices for the next three years.

HTC Nexus One

FYI, HTC is first ever manufacturer to launch a Nexus branded devices. It has launched the Nexus One in January that came with Android  2.1 Eclair. Interestingly, it is the only Nexus device to ever include a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion. In 2015, Google came up two Nexus smartphones instead of one but skipped to launch the tablet. The HTC made Nexus 9 that first launched in 2014 still continues as the flagship Nexus tablet.

With the tougher competition from global manufacturers like Samsung and LG and the fast-growing Chinese counterpart like Huawei, Lenovo, and Xiaomi; this three years deal might help HTC to gain some momentum. Apart from the latest Nexus devices, the HTC One A9 is the first ever smartphone to run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box. So the next three generation HTC devices will come with Android N, Android O, and Android P respectively.

The Android N will be announced the upcoming Google I/O that will be held from May 18 to May 20 and the Nexus smartphone running on Android N will be launched somewhere around September this year. The two upcoming HTC made Nexus are said to come with 5-inch and 5.5-inch display and are rumored to sport 3D Touch that was already available on few Android-powered smartphones like ZTE Axon Mini, Huawei Mate S, and Gionee S8.

Meizu, another Chinese manufacturer, also announced the Meizu Pro 6 to come with a 3D Touch display. While there is no more support from the current Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Google might bring the next Android N with 3D Touch functions. HTC will also be launching its 2016 flagship device HTC 10 (HTC One M10) on April 19th. The leaked images suggest a refreshed design with no HTC logo on the front. While there are is no confirmation from either Alphabet or HTC, we are pretty sure that this year there will be two HTC made Nexus smartphones.
