    Call it a Nexus 5, 5X, 6, 6P successor or whatever you like, but it will be the first device to ship with Android 7.0. Of course, there may be more than one device. So who is going to manufacture it, or them?
    I'm inclined to believe the HTC rumours.

    Are we taking bets on who we think is most likely or saying who we want it to be?

    The former was my intention. But the latter, by all means.

    I would have to agree with HTC based on the current set of rumors. Would love to see Samsung give it a go again.

    x2 on wishing for Samsung. I'd like to see what they could make these days, with a non Galaxy flagship.

    They do make gorgeous looking devices, but HTC are also known for good looking phones. Perhaps they might give Huawei another go, maybe making the cheaper handset this year

    I'd like to see HTC get one device. Sony get another. And if that happens....I'd be taking out a loan for both phones...

    Yeah... I'm kind of hoping HTC gives it a go. I'm fairly certain that all those mind-numbingly stupid derps that HTC has bungled recently become moot when you slap a NEXUS on the back of the phone, because Google would be the one making those decisions.

    HTC needs a) a shot in the arm and b) a kick in the backside. The market is better off with than without them.... more OEMs, more genetic diversity, more competition. Maybe doing a Nexus will nudge them along.

    But I think their problem is.... they are filling some mighty big shoes. Huawei slayed it with the 6P, and that's going to be a hard device to top.

    I agree. A little of a, and quite a bit of b. Would be nice to think if HTC and Nvidia got together and used the X1 chip in a device.

    X1 phone would be basic

    HTC is a great smartphone company. I feel they will make a better phone than the Huawei.

    Why not an Nvidia phone? Got the Shield K1 tablet and have been super-impressed with support. I was having a problem with "Miscellaneous" eating all my battery. I posted on one of their forums to see if anybody else was having the same problem and somebody from Nvidia Support direct emailed me. He sent me updates, one worked, the next didn't and eventually it ended up in the notorious February update.

    Here's to hoping that the nexus program might teach them to get rid of stupid superfluous stuff like capacitive buttons.

    Yup, hopefully Sony X Nexus. Intriguing to see if they change their design ethos. I think they might stick with Huawei though.

    Whatever it is, I hope it has expandable memory or at least be available in 128GB, my 64GB Turbo is busting at the seams. A huge battery and wireless charging would also be big for me.

    +1 for Sony, i mean they are using the them for the camera. Would be a good mix i think. I doubt they would use Samsung,

    I'd be a huge vote against adding SD, but the 6P already has a huge battery and a 64 and 128GB option so just not downgrading either of those is good.

    Yes if we're thinking of a 6P successor, but a 5X successor may be more modest. Of course we may get both.

    Not against Nvidia making one. I'm just not inclined to think they will. Mainly due to if they were interested in making one, I think they would have already.

    I'm not thrilled about the SD card becoming an integrated part of the OS. In this manner, cards will be read and written to much more often, and that may lead to more frequent card failures.

    I really hope the next flagship Nexus will be made by Huawei again: the 6P seems almost perfect, except for the SD810 (which does not even perform too bad on the 6P).
    I was going to buy this year's Nexus, but eventually decided to keep my N5 for another year, in the hope that the new Nexus "6-something" will have a similar display in a smaller device.
