Rumour: LG To Make The Next Nexus 7

LG Nexus

The new Nexus 7 isn’t even a week old yet and rumours about the next version of the Nexus 7 have already begun.  According to analyst Ming-Chi-Kuo, Google will be working with LG, not Asus, on next years iteration of the 7″ tablet.  On the one hand it seems like a very strange move on Google’s part as Asus has been one of the leaders in the Android tablet market since the beginning.  LG, on the other hand, had a rather unsuccessful go at Android tablets a couple of years back.

On the other hand however, partnering with LG makes a lot of sense as the company has definitely risen in the ranks over the past year or so plus their partnership on the Nexus 4 went quite well.  Add to that that LG has their own display division which produces some top notch displays and you can begin to see why Google may pick LG over Asus for next year’s Nexus 7.

Of course, this whole thing is still a ways away and who knows what’ll actually happen a year from now.  Interesting story nonetheless.
