Nexus 5 or whatever it might be called might come from LG-Google partnership again as Google is said to be on better terms with Korean tech giant. It is not the first time we have seen such reports but seeing the popularity of Nexus 4 as compared to previous Nexus devices, these might not just be some random passable rumors.
According to Korea Times, Google CEO Larry Page met LG Electronics CEO Koo Bon-joon for a quick chat during his recent trip to South Korea. A range of topics including working together on OLED televisions, next generation Google Nexus phone and even Google Glass was discussed between the two honchos. The report also adds that Page also met Samsung’s Head but LG seems to be having a much better cordial relations with Google.
In words of the Korea Times, “Currently, the consumer electronics arm of LG Group is working with Internet-giant Google to make another Nexus-branded Google Android Smartphone. LG is seeking to expand its partnership in TVs and future businesses, such as Google Glass. LG needs help from Google to continue its business momentum in Smartphones and TVs. That’s why Koo met Page.”
There was a time when LG just outperformed its Android competitors by debuting Optimus G and Nexus 4. Seeing the popularity and success of Nexus 4, LG might just bag the contract for the next Nexus device as well giving its mobile business a big uplift. Google is also reported to be working on a Motorola phone which was codenamed Google X Phone.
It remains to be seen how many different product lines Google will introduce with both Google X and Nexus 5 in talks. The rumored specifications involve at least a full HD display of around 5 inches, 2-3 GB of RAM, 13 MP rear camera, front camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU and Android 5.0.

Google plans to unveil only one device at its Google I/O this year which is anticipated to be Nexus 7 so we are skeptical of next generation Nexus Smartphone coming any sooner from Google.
