According to An Exec, Huawei WILL Make 2016 Nexus Phone | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter

Rumours have circled around for ages about HTC handling Google's Nexus line-up for 2016, the rumours go as far as to indicate a three-year deal which will see Google and HTC in cahoots on the project going forward. 
Due to all this talk one would have thought that the idea of a non-HTC Nexus phone was simply a dream.
Well no more.
Huawei have according to a report from Gearburn said they would be in the Nexus game this year.
Charlene Munilall who is Huawei's general manager of its phone business in South Africa, was asked why Nexus handsets had not been made available in the country, but point blank she said "we're doing the Nexus again this year, by the way." 
This fits in well with comments made by other Huawei execs following the announcement of Google's Daydream VR project; none other than Huawei Director Richard Yu confirmed that the company plans to launch a Daydream compatible handset in Autumn, during an interview with the Wall Street Journal.  
This could very well mean the non-Nexus Huawei device that is speced for Daydream, it seems reasonable to suppose that whatever Nexus devices Google launches going forward, whether Huawei, HTC or otherwise, will be Daydream compatible. 
Yu also stated that Huawei's team-up with Leica for camera tech was a long-term partnership for at least five years, but although that means we can expect to see more Leica camera-equipped Huawei devices we wouldn't go banking on the next Huawei Nexus to pack such a dual-camera setup.
It will certainly be interesting to see how a Nexus/Huawei teamup will be like. We're definitely looking forward to it.
