We will have to call this report a rumor for now, but if it turns out to be true, then it would confirm some previous rumors we heard earlier in the year. According to a list of devices over at AndroidNoodles, we may be looking at getting Nexus phones from three different OEMs this winter. Here are the names that popped up on the list of supposed devices in the manufacturer pipeline:
- Samsung Galaxy Nexus II (This one should come as no shock.)
- Sony Xperia Nexus (Interesting, and potentially very cool, since Sony is faster than any of the manufacturers for Android updates.)
- LG Optimus Nexus (This one is a head-scratcher at first when you consider that LG is typically known for making mid-range devices; however, the newer Optimus series phones have been wowing lately with high-end specs and gorgeous displays, so it is possible.)
If this turned out to be accurate, it actually wouldn't be too surprising. We had heard rumors earlier in the year that Google would extend its Nexus program to share with more OEMs, and this fits right in with that. Still, this could all be made-up poppy-cock so I wouldn't get my hopes up too much. We will keep an eye on this and share more info if it arrises. What do you think? Can you see yourself owning a Nexus device from Sony or LG?
