Already this year, we’ve heard multiple rumours that the LG G3 is already planned for a release in mid-2014, some placing it for release in May and some assuming it will come in June. Traditionally, LG‘s flagship devices, at least starting with the LG Optimus G, have served as the basis for the Nexus line of smartphones: the LG Optimus G became the Nexus 4, the LG G2 became the Nexus 5, and logic would say that a LG G3 would give credence to a possible Nexus 6 device. Today, Gizmodo.de has fanned the flames of this rumour by saying that the manufacturer of the Nexus 6 will be LG and that it will be more “lightweight”.
Seeing as the Nexus smartphones are generally made from slightly cheaper, lighter materials, it’s not surprising to hear the suggestion that any new Nexus device would also be more “lightweight”. As for specifications, assuming the Nexus 6 would possess the same internal hardware as the LG G3, it’s expected that these devices will have a 2K resolution display, some kind of a 64-bit processor and a 16MP camera. With Google I/O happening in late June as well, these rumoured time-frames do open up the very real possibility that a new Nexus device will show up at Google’s inaugural event.
