Google released its second-generation Nexus 7 slate only recently, after a lot of speculation and anticipation. The tablet is already being hailed as an excellent addition to the Nexus tablet line-up. And now, certain analysts have stated that Google may collaborate with LG for the third-generation Nexus 7.
If this happens, it wouldn’t be the first time the two companies would collaborate. In the past, Google and LG joined hands to create the Nexus 4 handset, which proved to be quite a success. Therefore, it isn’t too far-fetched to consider the possibility that Google may go for a similar partnership with LG for a Nexus tablet.
Tech analyst Ming-Chi-Kuo has made a number of really spot-on predictions about a number of tech companies in the past. It is him who has now stated that LG may be a viable partner for Google in creating the next-generation Nexus 7, which is due to arrive some time during 2014.
Kuo has premised his prediction on the fact that LG’s display panels are considered among the best in the market and the company is already providing them to Apple for iOS devices. If Google joined hands with LG, it can use these high-quality displays in the next-generation Nexus 7 slate.
There is also the possibility that Google continues its present Nexus 7 partnership with Asus and forges a new alliance with LG for a new tablet. Although the current Nexus tablets are sized at 7 and 10.1 inches, there’s still an 8-inch spot in between, which has proved to be a considerable niche. Google may break into that section with a new slate.
