Google is reportedly damping its Nexus 6 makers – Motorola – and collaborating with the makers of Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 once again for its next smartphone.
The search engine giant is said to be working with LG Mobile for its next Nexus device codenamed - N000, according to a report by E Today (via GSM Arena). It went on to add that Android engineers from Google visited LG's Display and R&D facilities in Korea and units that produce wireless charging parts and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) in camera.
It may be mentioned that Google collaborated with LG for its devices - Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 – but went on to work with Motorola for its current flagship device the Nexus 6. So, it will be LG's third smartphone with Google if they work together for the next generation smartphone.
The Motorola Nexus 6 was one of the most-awaited devices of 2014 but it is not as popular as its predecessor, the Nexus 5. So, it looks like the search engine giant is going back to LG to repeat history.
Meanwhile, Google has discontinued the LG Nexus 5 after months of speculation and Google Play Store has put up "The Nexus 5 is no longer available for purchase" notice on its website. Interestingly, Google didn't reduce the price of the device since it was launched. It has features like 4.95-inch display with 1080x1920 pixels (445 ppi pixel density), Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, Android 4.4 KitKat (upgradable to Android 5.0.1 Lollipop), 16/32 GB internal memory and 2 GB RAM, 8MP main camera and 1.4MP front snapper, and non-removable Li-Po 2,300 mAh battery, making it one of the most-demanded devices since its launch in 2013 till its discontinuation this month.
