Rumor: HTC Making Nexus Phones For Next Three Years

HTC was the designer and manufacturer for the original Nexus, and now it looks like they may have exclusivity on producing them for Google for three straight years.

A post to social network Weibo, spotted by Chinese site MyDrivers, claims HTC will design and manufacture stock Android phones for Google for the next few years. That would mark the first time Google’s stuck with one company for more than two years in a row. It also comes as a bit of a surprise because HTC’s last attempt at a Nexus product, the Nexus 9 tablet, wasn’t much of a hit compared to the Asus-made Nexus 7.
