LG-made Nexus 6 Probably Won't Happen

If there's ever going to be a Nexus 6, it won't be made by LG. At least that's what one exec from the Korean company seems to think.

A Dutch publication has quoted Ken Hong, LG's global communications director, as saying that he doesn't know anything about an LG Nexus 6 yet.

Given past release time frames, if the recent Nexus is to arrive this descend (like both of its LG-made predecessors), then Hong should have been trecent about it by now.

Furthermore, recent rumors spoke about the Nexus programme being discontinued altogether in favor of a broader 'Silver' effort from Google. This would comprise of more devices per year (not just one as with the Nexus line), and from more than one manufacturer.

At one point in the past LG was assumed to be making the first such 'Android Silver' handset, though this was referred to as being the successor to the Nexus 6.

So will there be a Nexus 6? It's really tough to tell. Though if it will happen, it's probably not going to be made by LG. On the other hand, the Korean company may be working with Google on a Silver smartphone, one which could debut next year.
