It looks like Samsung will once again be the manufacturer of Google next Nexus device, according to Taiwanese blog, DigiTimes. I’ll wait for you to stop rolling your eyes…
All set? Okay, good. DigiTimes is reporting that it’s a “given” that Google has selected Samsung to build their next Nexus because of Samsung’s continued dominance in the Android market space. While other companies, like HTC, LG and Sony continue to struggle, Samsung continues to make the best Android devices, not to mention they sell better than any of its competitors.
We know that Google doesn’t just pick sides when it chooses a partner for the Nexus phone, they look for an OEM to have a great “pitch,” meaning a plan to execute the best version of the Nexus, with Samsung leading the charge in terms of display technology, their own quad-core processor that allows for integrated LTE, it really is a no brainer why Samsung would be chosen. But this is a rumor from a site that has been getting worse and worse with its predictions and credibility. I know many of you are like me, in that we’d like to see what some other companies could do with a Nexus, to many, HTC’s Nexus One is still favorite, dated yes, but still a favorite. What could LG, Sony or even Motorola do with a Nexus device? It would be interesting to find out.
While this rumor is completely plausible, especially with the Galaxy S III on the way, which is supposedly sporting some amazing specs, perhaps that was the device that sealed the deal for Google, I guess we have to wait and find out, we just wanted to throw caution to the wind, seeing how this came from DigiTimes.
