LG once again is the rumor mill's guess as the manufacturer of the next Nexus handset
posted by Alan F. / Mar 19, 2015, 9:19 AM
LG is the company that built the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 handsets. The Nexus 6 is manufactured by Motorola. If LG does get the nod, it will break a tie with Samsung as both have created two Nexus phones. Samsung was responsible for the Nexus S and the Galaxy Nexus models.
Besides visiting LG's headquarters and facilities, the Google engineers are expected to visit various LG divisions including LG Innotek and LG Display. The former produces electrical components while the latter's line of business is obvious.
Thanks for the tip!

Please! I like Motorola, but their Nexus launch was a complete mess!

If they're a complete mess, why do you like them then? This whole root for the underdog mantra is overrated.

idk i think either Sony needs a turn or give HTC another go.. lg, samsung, and Motorla have had more than one opportunity and they did well..but spread the wealth right? (i am admittedly a fan of HTC lol so that opinion is just that, although Sony makes some great phones but has almost no presense in the US and a Nexus would help that a lot i think.)

I have just got the Nexus 6 but I don't like it quite as much as the LG G3 so far though it is slowly growing on me. Anyway, I would be happier to see LG make the next Nexus than Motorola. if nothing else, the Motorola phone is quite heavy.

I'm not terribly impressed by the brightness of the screen or the battery life (although it will still make it through a day). The camera is typical Motorola fare, although Google has to take some of the blame for the camera software.

Hopefully they will give some chance to Sony, they are the only one left out from the main OHA members, if really LG take over again, hopefully they will follow the Nexus 4 design, i like their slightly curve screen and rubber rim, it is nice to hold in hand, plus the back cover glass with the silver color background, truly one of the most beautiful phone i ever own.

I want the nexus 5 2015 to have OLED :( i did not like the screen on the nexus 5 it looks too whiteish compared to the iPhone :( (i know the difference on price makes the difference but still)

I'm not sure that I completely understand your complaint. The iPhone doesn't have an OLED screen either.

LG made Nexus 4 changed the way we looked at LG phones (optimus G started though) back in 2012 and it was by all means one of the best looking android device back then (& I imported one from the US once it became available). Still I'm using this phone and it rocks with some occasional hicups and bugs. But still, its a beauty to look at. Nexus 5 didn't have any awesome design stuffs but still was great. I think it would be awesome if the next Nexus was going back to the LG factory, because I simply cannot wait for a Nexus that has some design cues from the G3 or the upcoming G4 (which would have a good design by the way LG is going). Another thing, and HTC Nexus..wohoo..thats another story..
