New Nexus phones from HTC? Evidence starts to grow

Has Google partnered with HTC to make the next generation of Nexus smartphones? A second leak this week seems to suggest the rumors might really be true.

According to Twitter tipster @LlabTooFeR, who specializes in HTC leaks, the Taiwanese phone-maker may be working on two potential Nexus phones codenamed T50 and T55. That lines up with an earlier claim that the new phone will come in 5-inch and 5.5-inch variants.

It’s unclear where this new information is coming from, and @LlabTooFeR is careful to point out that it might not be accurate. Still, it’s tough not to get excited at the prospect of new Nexus devices, even if we don’t expect them to arrive until much later in the year.

HTC teamed up with Google to make the Nexus 9 back in 2014, but we haven’t seen an HTC Nexus smartphone since the original Nexus One. The Taiwanese company has produced some great handsets since then, and we’re curious to see what it might do with Google’s support. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to find out.
