A combination of logic and tradition dictates that the recent LG G3 should morph into the Google Nexus 6 later in the year, the LG Optimus G having evolved into the Nexus 4 (2012), and the LG G2 having shape-shifted into the Nexus 5 (2013).
However, recent whispers suggest the Google Nexus 6 mightn’t happen at all, and that notion is given credence by an LG exec revealing that they haven’t heard a peep.
That’s the story over on PhoneArena, though it’s worth noting that we’re playing Chinese Whispers. Sorry, that should be: South-Korean-into-Dutch-into-English Whispers.
Having said that, the upshot seems pretty clear, specifically that LG isn’t making a Google Nexus 6.
"I know at least not yet. Normally, we were informed," purred LG's Communications Director, Ken Hong, in an interview, suggesting that Google would've normally approached by now.
"That can mean two things. Either I got ignored, or we simply won't be making [the Nexus 6]."
As Ken implies, either someone else is making the Google Nexus 6 (HTC? They’re supposedly grabbing the Nexus 8 reins), or it isn’t happening at all.
For what it’s worth, @evleaks said last month that the Google Nexus 6 wasn’t happening, but that LG would – in consolation – churn out one of the first Android Silver devices early next year.
Having said all that, LG similarly plead ignorance about the Google Nexus 5 13 months ago, so… Moses, I don’t know what to think.
