google-nexus-5-red-009Earlier this week we reported that there are rumors that LG could be making this year’s Nexus handset. Now thanks to the folks at AndroidPIT, they claim to have heard from their source that LG is at the very least considering whether or not to make the device. According to the publication, “We now have confirmation from sources within LG that the company is indeed considering making the 2015 Nexus.”

That being said whether or not this consideration actually results in an actual product remains to be seen, but assuming it is true, it will be interesting to see how it will fare against Huawei’s own rumored offering. For those who missed the news, Huawei is also rumored to be building Google’s next Nexus.

Like we said if both LG and Huawei are involved, it will be interesting to see how they will compete against one another. In fact two Nexus handsets in the market does sound a bit like Google’s Android Silver program where there will be multiple phones offering a pure Android experience (essentially stock Android).

However with the program said to have been put on hold, perhaps having different OEMs producing Nexus handsets might be a good alternative. In any case be sure to take this with a grain of salt for now but what do you guys think of multiple OEMs competing with Nexus handsets? Yay or nay?
