    Charlene Munilall, general manager for Huawei’s Consumer Business Group in South Africa, recently made some intriguing comments regarding Huawei's smartphone plans this year. The part that stands out the most is basically a confirmation that Huawei will be making another Nexus device this year. If you read between the lines of her statement, it seems likely that Huawei will be the exclusive Nexus OEM for 2016.

    Here's what Munilall had to say in reference to questions as to why the Nexus 6P didn't come officially to South Africa,
    As you can see from her statement, she also confirms what Android fans have long suspected... that the Nexus devices only form a tiny part of a much larger Android ecosystem. While the Nexus device is a niche product, it also serves as an excellent example of what Android is capable of when OEMs keep the OS as pure as possible.

    Considering how well received the Nexus 6P was last year, it's exciting to see that Huawei will be covering the Nexus line again this year.

    Here are a couple of discussion forums for Huawei Nexus products including last year's Nexus 6P and the rumored Nexus 7P for this year:

    Hmm. Could it be a tablet considering Google is going to want a platform for their split screen apps?
