With hype these days focusing primarily around Apple’s iPhone 6S Duo launches for this September, news about other devices that should be joining the iPhone is scarce. While we’ve been hearing some news about Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge Plus that’s expected to come later this year, and Xiaomi’s Mi5 , which should be one of the first devices to come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820, Google’s Nexus has stopped appearing in the leaks chain over the past couple of months. The device, which has been rumored to be manufactured by Chinese OEM Huawei until now, is starting to see somewhat of a twist in its manufacturer, if today’s information turns out to be true.

LG’s Now Rumored To Be Manufacturing Google’s 2015 Nexus Smartphone

Google’s Nexus smartphones, which have gained popularity amongst users over the past couple of years due to their compact size, stock Android and reasonable performance specifications saw somewhat of a setback amongst fans last year. The Nexus 6, manufactured by Motorola was a top-tier device and came with some pretty good specifications, but showed both the companies’ intent of aiming at the top tier market this time around with the Nexus.


But, if today’s news is to be believed, courtesy of folks over at AndroidPit, things might change on the 2015 Nexus. Not only will the device be smaller than the Nexus 6, but it’ll also be cheaper, which might help it win back some of the loyal fans that Google lost with the launch of the Nexus 6. In addition, the next Nexus is now rumored to be build by LG, rather than Huawei, as had been rumored so far. In addition, it won’t be based on any current LG device, such as the company’s LG G4, but will come with an entirely new design, which will be based on an unreleased prototype.

Google Could Be Taking Away One Actual Good Thing From Nexus Devices

For all of you hoping for a Huawei Nexus, you might still get to see one, since some quarters believe that we might get to see two Nexus smarpthone launches this year. If correct, this would mean that even Google has started to follow on a trend of releasing two devices, in order to cater for all segments of the market. Thoughts?
