Next Google Nexus will be either HTC, or LG built

Next Google Nexus will be either HTC, or LG built - read the full textThe Nexus line is the true and original Google phone and we've seen two already. And now we came across a photo of a third Nexus phone in its testing stage. The phone looks HTC-made and lacks the menu/home/back/search keys. It will probably run Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest Android version. The...

i think this one is going to be a LG built because HTC already got a shot at building a nexus. think nexus is a phone that can be built by any company and every year the nexus will look and feel completely different to its predecessor

I guess it will be LG made.
The first Google phone was HTC made, the second was Samsung made.
The idea is to rotate manufactures, to give a variety to the "Google-branded" phones.
Motorola, Sony Ericsson and other might want to gear up because they might be the next manufactures picked up by Google!!!

Finally. No outdated hardware and crappy plastic build.

Why flog a dead horse? The only manufacturers producing decent phone hardware are Sony Ericsson (granted they need 1 dual core to compete in the android market) and Nokia. Unless one of these two picks it up, the Nexus will again flop in terms of sales.

The design looks like LG design as it resembles most LG designs and not HTC or Samsung Design. As Google gave equal chance to HTC (Nexus One) and samsung (Nexus S)... This time is LG's turn...

GSMArena I think you should not be discussing the photos sent because other Android sites have already started treating this little credibility since it is obvious that the phone is photoshopped. Either take the photo off or at least mention it is fake otherwise you are misleading your readers.

Hey Google, choose one:

HTC : Top notch build quality
Samsung : Light and thin
Motorola : Bold and tough
SE : Unique and sexy
LG : It's like Samsung but simpler

> In reply to [deleted post]Have you tried using Android? It seems to me that you are just bashing Android OS. Do you know the word 'innovation'? Symbian OS doesn't know it, that's why Symbian will only stay up to 2016! Hahaha. Nokia is gradually dropping it! They cannot drop it right now because of the huge investments they poured on that OS. It sucks big time isn't it?

> In reply to [deleted post]WHAT? nokia phones are so past tense. plus the quality of their phones is crap especially if they have keys which are shaky and tend to fall off after a few months (I'm a heavy texter) my last nokia phone the n97 mini wouldn't even turn on any more after just a year. and the n81 8gb keys were falling off like baby teeth in children in a similar time frame. the newer models are either rip other manufactures' successes such blackberry (incl. e71) or iphone (incl. idoaltomore) or are bulky and heavy. basically nokia is flooding the market with a huge number of phones hoping that someone or anyone will by their products. and don't get me started on symbian which is slow and the sync is even worse than itunes that's probably why the roll out symbian by 2014 and focus on WP7 their best move in almost a decade because Microsoft won't allow low end handset with their emerging OS. my case in point is that nokia phones are gone with the wind and it's users are delusional and stuck in nostalgia mode for phones that were successful because of lack development at the time being a fairly new market and had a great advantage of being early entries.

Don’t think this is real. I think the next Nexus or Nexus 4 will be manufactured by Google and here’s why: “Finally, the iPhone killer! It’s not an iPhone.
