One of the reasons why Nexus smartphones can be more exciting than the rest of Android devices is because Google doesn’t stick to one hardware manufacturer. The first Nexus handset was created by HTC, followed by two devices by Samsung and two from LG. The latest model in the series was manufactured by Motorola, and recently there have been rumors to suggest that the next Nexus expected to be released by the end of 2015 will be pieced together by Huawei.
Interestingly enough though, a fresh report from Korea now brings LG back under the spotlight as one of the potential manufacturers of the Nexus 7 smartphone, or whatever its name will be. More details below.
New LG Made Nexus Smartphone In The Works?
According to the Korean media, earlier this week on the 16th of March, Google’s engineers visited LG’s headquarters and took a tour of its facilities. Reportedly, for as long as these engineers will be in Korea, they will also visit LG’s various affiliates – including LG Innotek and LG Display.
With all the commotion going on, industry insiders quoted by the source believe that Google and LG are now discussing the possibility of a renewed collaboration whose end result will be a new LG-made Nexus smartphone. Evidently, these events could lead to the creation of other gadgets, including smartwatches and so on, but nevertheless it would be quite interesting to see LG getting back into the Nexus program, given the company’s recent efforts to produce unique, curved smartphones.
If you were to vote one smartphone maker to produce the next Nexus smartphone, which one would you pick? Also, do you think electing LG for the third time would be a good decision from Google’s part?
