Google and LG Reportedly Collaborate again for Nexus 6
Google Inc and LG Electronics are reportedly teaming up again to create the next-generation Nexus. According to reports (particularly from a technology site in Germany), the two giant smartphone manufacturers would renew their ties so they could collaborate for the development of Nexus 6.
The partnership is not new. In fact, it is an open knowledge that LG designed and made the recent two handsets from Google, the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 5. The newer of the two was released to the market just last October. It is equipped with the newest version of Android—Android 4.4 or KitKat.
It was just last month when a new version of Nexus 5 was launched. The bright red version of the Google smartphone is now available through Google Play Store. It now joins its earlier versions—the black and white Nexus 5 units in 16GB and 34GB variations.
Denials from both camps
It is just odd that both Google and LG are implying that they know nothing about the reports. Android Senior VP Sundar Pichai was recently quoted as saying that a new Nexus would not be possible and would not be launched in the first half of this year. He said that during the Mobile World Congress last month held at Barcelona, Spain.
For its part, LG simply said that it is currently working on its new lineup of handsets. The South Korean smartphone maker is proud to say that it made the first curved smartphone in the world—G Flex, a 6-inch handset that was already launched across the US last February 5.
The continuous rumor mill
The rumor mill does not stop the speculations. Additionally, some sources even stated specifications of the new Nexus 6. They claim that the new smartphone from Google and LG would measure 5.5 inches in height and would have a Quad HD Screen with resolution of 2,560 X 1,440 pixels. T would also reportedly feature a 64-bit processor along with a 16-megapixel camera at its rear.
Some other sources are confident that the new Nexus 6 is already in its completion form. They even bet that it would be one of Google’s surprise announcements when it mounts its I/O developer conference on June 25 to June 26. Is there is accuracy to such reports, there are reasons for Nexus fans to rave and celebrate soon.
