LG in Talks with Google to Bag Next Nexus Device Deal

February 27, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Looks like the Nexus devices will have some good chances of getting the necessary expansion in the consumer electronics market with more players getting into talks with Google for a manufacturing partnership.

The search giant has so far picked up a bunch of leading manufactures rotating from HTC and Samsung to roll out devices under the Nexus brand. However more names are likely to join the party it seems.

As per emerging reports, LG is in talks with Google to zero in on a set of terms and conditions to manufacture the next Nexus device in the market.

Though the company has yet to announce it officially, LG’s smartphone division head Ramchan Woo has spilled the beans on the possible tie up in a recent interview.

Though he didn’t go into the details and the present progress of the discussion, we understand that the deal in still in heavy negotiations and a final commitment has not been inked.

The move from LG to bag a manufacturing deal for Nexus device is obvious since Android OS is getting more and more popular and Nexus devices are considered to be tailored to bring out the best Android experience.

Moreover, being the flagship hardware, new Nexus phones come out first with the updated versions of the OS, making them hot cakes in the market.

Speculations are rife among the rumor mills that Google is planning to roll out the next version of Android Os dubbed as JellyBean. So that makes reason for LG to talk business with Google at this time.

To add to it, there are rumors that suggest that the tie up may witness the expansion of Nexus brand to include tablets and Google TV apart from just smartphones.
