The Nexus 6 is rumoured to be a “lightweight” version of the upcoming LG G3

nexus 6Already 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.

What do you think about these rumours about a Nexus 6, or even a LG G3? Let us know your opinion in the comments.

    I seriously doubt Google will break the October/November release of the Nexus phone. And I dont know about Google using LG for a 3rd time.

      There’s no precedent to say that they will or won’t use LG again ;) LG’s rumoured to be making Google’s smartwatch too

        Yea but we just saw last week of a prototype Google watch made by Moto from last summer. Who really knows. They have deep secrets

          That’s very true; I would have sworn tooth and nail that there was going to be a new Nexus 10 by now about 6 months ago, and clearly that was a lie. Always best to sit back and enjoy the show :)
