Google has successfully made the jump to the hardware market with their Nexus family of smartphones and tablets, although the manufacturing part is still outsourced to other notable names such as Asus, HTC, Samsung and LG. Well, we do know that Google has already begun a trend that includes a new Nexus smartphone with each passing year, and so far, this “record” has remain unblemished for the past four years, so who are we to say that 2013 is the year when Google would break such tradition? The thing is, no one knows who will manufacture the next Nexus device.
To date, HTC and LG were picked to roll out a Nexus smartphone once, with Samsung getting the opportunity twice, and word on the street has it that LG would catch up with Samsung this time around, at least according to The Korea Times . Could it be that Google was more than happy with the Nexus 4, that a sequel from LG would mean we will get a look at the Nexus 5 (or whatever it is called) in due time?
