While the mobile world has been rather talkative about Huawei bagging a contract from Google to produce the upcoming Nexus phone, we have now come across reports that LG is involved in the development as well.
However, unlike Huawei which is working on a 5.7-inch Nexus phone, LG is working on a smaller 5.2-inch variant which will feature Android M, fingerprint sensor, Chrome custom tab and Android Pay as inbuilt features.
While LG has churned out decent smartphones like the G Flex 2 and the G4 recently, the Nexus phone will not feature many traits that LG phones generally have, principally a curved body, user interface or camera features.
It is being reported that Google's engineers have laid out strict guidelines on how the Nexus phone needs to be built, and LG and Huawei will get very little scope to customise their respective Nexus phones.
Nevertheless, it's not easy to say how things turn up between now and the official launch, and we would very well come across a curved variant of the Nexus 7 if LG can have its way.
