The rumor comes out of the blue, but might be a pleasant one to those who love to have their nexus phones at 5′ Inches display. A new report from a Chinese source suggests that HTC who is most likely Google’s partner for the 2016 nexus devices is working on an upgraded One A9 to be the Nexus 2016 (the smaller and affordable one). The specification bump will happen on the processor front but which processor ? We don’t know yet. At this point we advise our readers to take this news with a huge pinch of salt until we can have a more solid leak about the topic.
The Email we received from the sources based in China is quoted below and it translates to – One A9 to be upgraded as Nexus 2016 small
Other things like the Camera, Battery, Display and Storage options are most likely to be copied from the A9 which makes us wonder about the Micro SD card slot finally coming into play. We already saw the Adaptive storage feature in the Android and since then it has raised a question that why wouldn’t Google use it on its nexus brand. If this turns out to be true we might see a huge raise in sales figure of nexus devices and Micro SD slot’s still means a lot to majority smartphone buyers. Another recent post from Knowyourmobile suggests that the HTC-made Nexus handsets are currently being tested running Android N with a full implementation of the previously rumoured pressure-sensitive touch display, which is most likely the case to be in the larger nexus according to us.
