LG once again is the rumor mill's guess as the manufacturer of the next Nexus handset
A visit by Google engineers to LG headquarters this past Monday has the rumor mill buzzing that the manufacturer will be called upon once again, to produce a new stock Android Nexus handset. Earlier this month, the smart money was betting that Huawei would be given the opportunity to deliver the next Nexus phone, loaded with its home grown 64-bit octa-core Kirin chipset.

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.
