A Huawei employee has confirmed that the Chinese company is working with Google for the upcoming Nexus smartphone.


Google has reportedly been working on two Nexus smartphones to launch this year. Preliminary leaks have suggested out of the two Nexus smartphones – the smaller is being manufactured by LG, and the larger by Huawei. Now, new details have emerged citing a Huawei employee that hint at the existence of a Huawei-made Nexus smartphone.

A Huawei employee has told IBTimes UK that Google is working with the Chinese handset maker on the Nexus smartphone.
The employee however did not detail any innards of the handset or release date.

Adding further, the employee claimed that the partnership is important for Huawei considering it will boost the brand in the global market.

Some of the purported specifications of the Huawei-made Nexus smartphone, supposedly codenamed Angler, suggest a metal build and a 5.7-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) display, which of course will be smaller than the Motorola Google Nexus 6 featuring a 5.96-inch QHD display. Other rumoured specifications include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC and 3500mAh battery.
