According to latest reports coming in from China, Huawei-made Nexus could evolve from the company's unannounced large-screen device, the Mate 8.
Based on a leaked roadmap, which we came across recently, the Huawei Mate 8 is likely to debut next month, with reports suggesting that the successor to Mate 7 would sport a similar 6in screen, but higher resolution than the former, at 1440x2560.
It would use the home grown Kirin 930 SoC featuring an octa-core processor with 64-bit support, this is the similar processor, which the new Nexus smartphone developed by Huawei has been rumored to use.
Chinese site MyDrivers has obtained information about the Huawei Nexus smartphone from its sources, who revealed that based on the Mate 8 prototype, the Nexus device is expected to be released in fall this year.
As per Chinese tech analyst Pan Jitang Weibo's posting, the Huawei's Nexus is expected to pack Snapdragon 810, 5.7in OLED display from Samsung with 2K resolution.
Apart from the chip, the Chinese tech major could be looking for creating its own mobile operating system in a bid to curb dependency on Google's Android OS.
A Gizmochina report states that Huawei's OS has been in development in their laboratory for three years and that it would be standalone OS, which would work with a self developed chip.
