LG May Be The Maker Of Next Google Nexus Smartphone, Report Claims
Who will be the maker of the next Google Nexus device? The answer was ambiguous until the latest rumors came which suggest that LG Electronics will be the manufacturer of the the Nexus 6’s successor.
The report has come from a Korean site eToday which observes that top officials from Google have been noticed visiting various facilities at the headquarters of the South Korean smartphone maker. According to the publication, officials included Google engineers who took an observatory tour at LG Display, the R&D center an LG innotek. These facilities deal with numerous subjects related to the smartphones manufacturing such as display capabilities, wireless charging components and camera functions.
If the rumors come true, Google and LG will probably be working on a device code-named N000 with working title Nexus 7. If we comprehend the pattern in which Google names its devices, Nexus 7 is likely to be a tablet cum phone with 7-inch display as compared to the 6-inch display of Nexus 6 and 5-inch display of Nexus 5.
It was this tour which gave birth to serious speculations about the future collaboration for the successor of Nexus smartphones between two old partners. LG has remained part of the Nexus series as it made Google Nexus 4 and Nexus 5. As part of this expected collaboration, the report suggests a smartwatch based on Google operating system is also being schemed.
Although the device has enough imaginary rationale but no official announcements have come either from Google or LG. We should also not forget that, conventionally, when such a device from any of the big names is supposed to be in line, rumors and speculations arose. As the Google is looking forward to its I/O developer conference in June, the tech giant is being associated with different reports. And in the next remaining weeks, we may come across several others.
In past few weeks, different reports have made their claims. Some of the rumors also claim that Google may come with two Nexus devices: one manufactured by LG and the other from Huawei.
