The new Nexus is reportedly being made by Huawei, and will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 processor

We heard about Huawei reportedly making Google's new Nexus handset that will be unveiled at Google I/O next month, but now there's some new information on the upcoming smartphone.


Google will reportedly tap Qualcomm for its Snapdragon 810 processor, but with the Snapdragon 820 said to be made available soon, it would be a strange move by Google unless it was going to be thinking clearer this year and price the new Nexus more competitively than the ridiculosu pricing on the Nexus 6.

The new Nexus should feature a 5.7-inch QHD (2560x1440) display, but other than that, we don't know what else we'll find inside of the handset. I'm sure we'll be greeted to Android 6.0 at Google I/O, which should be used first on the new Nexus. But what will Google call the new Nexus? We have had the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 smartphones, while we've had the Nexus 7, Nexus 9 and Nexus 10 tablets. With a 5.7-inch display, we can't expect Google to name it the Nexus 5.7, or Nexus 6. Here's hoping for something different, like Nexus X or Nexus 2.
