LG will not be making the next version of Googleâ€™s Nexus phone. According to LGâ€™s Communications Director Ken Hong Google still hasnâ€™t contacted them over a Nexus deal and normally he would be asked.
Hong said that can mean two things. Either Google ignored his calls or LG simply wonâ€™t be making the Nexus 6. It is also possible that Google is not creating a Nexus phone this year at all.
Hong said that heâ€™s fine with some other vendor getting business from Google this time round. â€śIf you can develop a Google phone that gives credibility. But money you earn is not easy, and you become too dependent on Google.â€ť
Supply issues can be tricky, adding that it was Google rather than LG which determines how many phones are to be made. LG was blamed for Nexus 5 shortages.
Still it is not all bad. Word on the street is that LG is making the next Nexus tablet although this is yet to be officially confirmed.
