According to Phone Arena, Google is partnering with Huawei to build a Nexus phone this year because it wants to help the Chinese firm to gain ground in Western markets. In exchange, Huawei will assist Google in building the Android app store for the Chinese audience because Google Play Store is not available in China.

As of this writing, Google has not confirmed the benchmark scores of the alleged LG Nexus 2015 and also it has not announced anything on this year’s Nexus phone.
