    [RUMOR] Samsung to Make the Next Nexus...Yes, Again




    We are going to throw this one up as rumor. According to DigiTimes and Industry insiders, "Google Inc is cooperating with Samsung as its primary production partner for the launch of its second and third own-brand smartphones."

    Since Samsung has become the top vendor of Android smartphones, Google will continue to have Samsung develop its next-generation Nexus models, leveraging Samsung's innovation ability with regard to the Android platform, and its ability to control the supply of key components, said sources.
    Keep in mind folks that DigiTimes has missed the boat on more than one occasion, and this is only one source. If the decision on the next manufacturer has not been made yet, you can bet it is going to happen very very soon. We'll keep our eyes peeled for reliable information that will verify the veracity of this rumor. Does it matter who makes the next Nexus, or is there a preference? Perhaps Motorola? Maybe HTC again? We want to hear from you.

    We're talking about the same Google that was rumored to have made a recent statement about NOT using Samsung as a partner anymore for it's flagship devices due to inconsistent build quality and persistent software bugs, right?

    lets take a look back at memory lane at motorola's first (unofficial nexus like) vanilla "android saving" "deity of android" Droid.






    We just saw how great the og droid was and I think its long over due for a motorola branded nexus or another motorola droid (the unlocked on we all know and love).

    I have this overwhelming feeling of nostalgia today for that first Droid that changed the world. I miss that og but I am proud. It might sound stupid but I'd love for them to re-release the og Droid but with a larger screen, thinner, 4g lte, the tegra CPU, & a gig of ram, with an unlocked bootloader and devs can all flock to it, creating all kinds of Roms n goodies for us to play with- like it used to be. -golden accents, very thin physical keyboard, no more blur, etc
    God I'm daydreaming.

    The GALAXY NEXUS

    It's only a matter of time until Android and Nokia become friends. Once this happens, it will end all talk of who should get the Nexus. Could you imagine the Lumina 900 as a Nexus device running 4.0 right now?

    It's called the Droid Razr. :-D

    Didn't we find out that any company that wants to can submit a prototype/proposal device to Google when we went through the g-nex cycle? Because if I remember right HTC and LG had both also submitted prototypes but Google chose to go with Sammy's design. I don't think Moto had even submitted a design according to the info I had seen.

    I've got no issue if Samsung makes it again. I'd like to see a lesser known get a shot though.
