Huawei may have been chosen to build "affordable" Nexus

According to new rumors , Huawei is said to be chosen by Google to build one of its next Nexus devices .The move , which is said to bring a affordable nexus (possibly to replace the Nexus 5) was first brushed off as a rumor , but now Kevin Yang - director of China Research (iSupply) confirmed that the news is indeed true and Google is working with the Chinese OEM to produce the nexus device .

If the said Huawei Nexus is true , we expect the already affordable Nexus 5 to to hit retirement , last year , when Google announced the $600+ Nexus 6 , potential nexus buyers were turned off from buying one as the price couldn't be justified as the older generation was $349 . As a response , Google kept the Nexus 5 as a alternative in production ,but now the device is almost one and a half years old and LG will surely end production , and therefore a Huawei alternative will probably substitute the affordable nexus segment while a high end flagship from (possibly LG) will take over the top spot
