It’s said that HTC is making the two Nexus phones this year. It’s also being said that Huawei is making another Nexus device in 2016 as well. While something has to give, there’s a whole ton of slack to get through before Google schedules its hardware launch event sometime later this quarter.
Media reports are pointing to a recent FCC equipment entry as a bolster to Huawei’s sequel to its Nexus 6P.
Two identical phones have been logged, one likely an unlocked phone and another marked for prepaid carrier Tracfone. The device’s US codenames, as designated by Huawei in FCC documents, are the H1622 and the H710VL, respectively. It’s interesting to note that the 6P’s model name was H1511.
More interesting: Huawei’s internal model name for this new device (in both its variants) is KIW-A2. The codename for the Honor 5X is KIW-L24. And just look how much alike they are to each other.
Whatever the case, look to a 3,100mAh battery, a headphone jack and a USB-C port on the device whenever it goes public.
