HTC is rumored to have the next few Nexus phones down for a lock. So, what’s going on with the news that Huawei has filed for trademark protections of the term, “Huawei 7P”? Like, what?

Sure, Huawei had a terrific time with the Nexus 6P — it stretched the company’s high-end footprint by providing a high-end, stock Android mobile experience to lands that are North America. But what would a Huawei 7P bring to the table? We don’t know. We’ll have to wait and see and hope that something comes out of this — it doesn’t always happen. Also, a Huawei 7P would sound not-at-all confusing alongside a Huawei P9 or something like that, just saying.

The company could be looking to keep a schedule of four flagship smartphones a year with the 7P (last year we saw the P8, the Nexus 6P, the Mate S and the Mate 8) to keep those shipments driven. The company wants 140 million smartphones out of its factories this year with about 61.6 million of them as flagships. Huawei’s eager to see consumer-side revenues at $30 billion this year and $40 billion in 2018. Part of the roadmap there will mean more mid-range and high-end phones in markets like the US and more retail and support presence in developing markets.
