Google VP says that LG is the best partner for engineering Nexus handsets
Considering that LG has been the company behind three Nexus handsets, comments made by Google executive David Burke are not surprising. Burke, the vice president of Android engineering at Google, said in a video press conference, "Our engineers really like to work with the people at LG Electronics. Together they have become an excellent team."

LG made its Nexus debut with the Nexus 4, which was released in November 2012. Halloween night the next year, Google delivered a treat with the LG built Nexus 5. After a one-year hiatus, the manufacturer was back this year with the Nexus 5X, one of two new stock Android Nexus handsets unveiled last month.

What Burke's comments mean about future Nexus models isn't totally clear. A new Nexus manufacturer was added this year with the Huawei built Nexus 6P. It is too early for Google to discuss its intentions for the Nexus program next year, but that doesn't mean we can't ask questions. Will Google continue serving up two different models again next year, or will it return to the one Nexus-per year format it had used since the Nexus One was launched in 2010? The Nexus 6P is a higher-end model than the Nexus 5X is, and if demand warrants it, Google might decide to continue to serve both the mid-range and high-end markets again next year.


For those interested, Samsung's pair of Nexus models (Nexus S, Samsung Galaxy Nexus) puts it just one behind LG. Other manufacturers include HTC (Nexus One) and Motorola (Nexus 6). Overall, eight Nexus branded phones have been released.
