    Is Huawei making another Nexus smartphone?

    Multiple reports earlier this year said that Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC will build at least two devices for Google.

    A Huawei executive for South Africa delved out the information while discussing last year's Nexus 6P smartphone during an interview.

    "The Nexus product is a very niche product, the techies love it, but there's a very small number of people that buy it. Hence, Cellucity (mobile company) only brought 300 units into the country," Huawei's General Manager for the Consumer Business Group in South Africa Charlene Munilall was quoted as saying.

    "The operators generally do not take up the Nexus device," she continued.

    Recently, Google Chief Executive Sundar Pichai had said that Google would continue to release Nexus devices. The software giant will not manufacture its hardware, but Google plans to be more involved with Nexus device.
