A few days ago, it was reported that Internet giant Google plans to re-open its online device store and feature a Nexus phone during its opening. Android chief Andy Rubin wrote in his blog, “We’ve come a long way since the first Android devices started hitting shelves three and a half years ago and since the launch of the first nexus device,” to announce that Google would begin the sale of the Galaxy Nexus in the United States.
Since people are used to Google releasing a new Nexus device every year, they are now trying to guess which smartphone maker will be the one to make the next-generation phone this time.
DigiTimes has a pretty vivid idea as to who. Sources to the site say Samsung has obtained the contract for producing Google’s next smartphone.
“Since Samsung has become the top vendor of Android smartphones, Google will continue to have Samsung develop its next-generation Nexus models, leveraging Samsung’s innovation ability with regard to the Android platform, and its ability to control the supply of key components,” DigiTimes reports.
The fourth-generation Nexus is expected to be launched by Google in the fourth quarter this year. People on the watch somehow expect it to be a divestiture of the Samsung Galaxy S III.
