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.
