@LlabTooFeR, is a popular twitter account known for leaking android news.According to @LlabTooFeR HTC could be making two Nexus devices in 2016. HTC is likely to make a T50 with a 5-inch screen and it will also make a T55 that has a 5.5-inch screen. Comparing the Nexus flagship with iPhone could make sense as the iPhone 6S has a 5.5-inch screen.
It's not clear about how Google chooses its partners for the Nexus devices every year. However, till now all companies like Samsung, Motorola, LG, Huawei and HTC came out with at least one Nexus device in the past. However, Samsung came out with two Nexus devices in the past.
