Will Google choose Huawei to make the Nexus 7 tablet next year?

Will Google choose Huawei to make the Nexus 7 tablet next year?

 ASUS was the manufacturer of the Nexus 7 for 2012 and 2013.

Google has not released a 7-inch tablet for two years and the latest rumor hints that it has plans to do so in 2016.

According to a Chinese report, Huawei is expressing its interest to Google in making the next generation Nexus 7 tablet. Google has not finalized any plans yet, but Huawei hopes to continue its partnership with Google beyond the Nexus 6P. 

Huawei is a fast rising star in the smartphone industry; it was China's top smartphone vendor in Q3 2015 and is one of the two Nexus phone makers this year. However, the increasing popularity of phablets today casts doubts on whether a 7-inch tablet is still a viable product.
