Rumor has it that HTC will be making some Nexus phones for Google in the near future. Huawei has it that the company is also make a Nexus phone for this year.

The company launched its P9 series of phones in South Africa today. Like the US, China has had strong investment interests in the entire continent for a while now — but consumer tech companies like Huawei have been slow to bring fresh business over.

GearBurn talked with the head of Huawei’s South African unit, Charlene Munilall, about why it was the case that the country didn’t see much headway for the Nexus 6P. She said, as have others, that “the techies love it, but there’s a very small number that buy it.” One retailer, Cellucity, made only 300 units available in South Africa.

Munilall casually added on:

That said, the distributors, our open market, do bring in the device, that’s how Cellucity got it… and that will still be the same this year. We’re doing the Nexus again this year, by the way.

And suddenly, the 7P trademark, the souped up spec rumors all make sense. While the company has confirmed that it is working on a Nexus device, though, we have no confirmation about what it will embody and what will be inside of it.

This year’s Nexus lineup sounds like a cross-strait competition. HTC versus Huawei. We’ll see where that ends up if it all gets confirmed.
