Google’s visit to different smartphone manufacturer’s headquarters made a stir in the smartphone world as speculations suggests that Google is in talks with different mobile phone makers to create the next Nexus device. And one of which seems potentially a probable one indeed as rumors now suggests that Google could be working with LG for the third time for the next Nexus smartphone.
LG have been in partnership with Google for the Nexus 4 and the popular Nexus 5. Nexus 6 however was made by Motorola just as when Google sold the company it acquired in 2011 to Lenovo just last year. Despite the growing popularity, the Nexus 6 didn’t quite got the click that it needed unlike the time when the Nexus 5 became official and captured many users during its time.
Recently, Google Android Engineers visited LG’s Display and R&D division in South Korea to check on parts and components for smartphone displays, wireless charging parts and imaging technology component Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) but that didn’t stop there as the rumors have suggested that Google is also dealing with LG to build the new Nexus smartphone with codename N000.
Though the rumored developments are both unconfirmed by both parties, as Google prepares for Google I/O 2015 event which will come in May, it is also anticipated that the Search giant would also unveil the next Nexus device which is believed to be coming from none other than LG. There were also rumors earlier that Google would be releasing two separate Nexus devices for different market segments with one on the high-end market which will be dominated by a Nexus device from LG and a mid-end device purportedly from Chinese manufacturer Huawei. These speculations are all waiting to be confirmed until Google starts to talk about them.
