Nexus 2016 Rumors Surface Following Huawei 7P Trademark News

April 22, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Huawei’s maiden attempt with the Nexus brand was well lauded for its neat and clean output. And now it appears that the Chinese manufacturer will continue to expand the Nexus brand.

According to reports, Huawei has trademarked the name Huawei 7P, which very much confirms that a new Nexus device from Huawei is in the offing.

The latest Nexus device from Huawei was named Nexus 6P, and was released along with the compact variant from LG which was called the Nexus 5X.


However, the trademark of the new name has now led to new discussion among the masses, and that’s about the form factor of the upcoming Nexus. The trademark, which has been registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on April 7, hasn’t mentioned whether the device will be a tablet or a smartphone.

It’s been quite a while since Google brought up a Nexus tablet. The last year witnessed a shift in Google’s Nexus stratagem by releasing two Nexus smartphones in the same year.

But according to the timeline of the Nexus tablet range, 2016 is supposed to be the year of a Nexus tablet return. The last time they had the Nexus tablet rolled out was in 2014, during which they had HTC roped in for the Nexus 9 tablet. This followed the Asus Nexus 7 tablet launch that shaped up in 2012. A bettered version of the device was released next year.

If some reports are to be believed, the 7P will be the successor to the Asus Nexus 7 2013 tablet. This sounds valid considering the naming pattern that reflects the screen size of the devices. But if going back to the version-wise nomenclature, Nexus 7P could end up as the successor to the Nexus 6P.

Sites like 9to5Google have also confirmed the smartphone nature of the device. It also reports that the device will feature the latest Snapdragon 820 SoC onboard, and will feature a 5.7-inch QHD display with 4GB RAM.

We still can’t confirm any of these reports, as the Huawei 7P trademark doesn’t indicates a certainty that a device of the name will be brought eventually. We will sure be hearing more of this in the coming days, following which we can incline to a conclusion.
