“Huawei 7P” trademark may point to new Nexus tablet

Huawei burst onto the scene last year with the Nexus 6P. Now it looks like the Chinese giant could be laying the groundwork for an even bigger follow-up.

The company recently published a U.S. trademark for the “Huawei 7P.” The filing doesn’t reveal much. However, it does describe an electronic device, ranging from a smartphone to a tablet to some sort of wearable.

The name “7P” sounds like a follow-up to the Nexus 6P, so maybe this is another Nexus-branded product. Google typically names each Nexus device based on screen size, suggesting we could be looking at a 7-inch gadget. In that case, the 7P may be a follow-up to the popular Nexus 7 series with a fresh design from Huawei.

It’s not too much of a stretch to imagine that Google and Huawei could team up on a new Nexus tablet. With HTC allegedly committed to two new Nexus smartphones there’s still room for a stock Android slate in this year’s lineup, and if it’s anything like the beautiful Nexus 6P we’ll be more than happy to pick one up.
