LG and Huawei made the Nexus devices in 2015 and both of them were well received by the Nexus fans, specially the Nexus 6P which got pretty good reviews. This year, HTC might be the one to make both of the Nexus phones for Google, atleast according to an often-reliable leakster on Weibo.
HTC was the first one to make the first ever nexus device, HTC Google Nexus One in January 2010, but Google never turned back to HTC after that until 2014, when they released HTC Nexus 9. But according to this weibo leakster, HTC will be making two nexus phones for Google this year, both 5 inches and 5.5 inches. HTC was in quite a loss in 2015 but no doubt, they have made pretty solid devices in past without any sacrifice in build quality. If they really make the nexus devices this year, then that might help them in reviving in market which seems very difficult for them at this point.
