DON’T MISS: The little red dot that saved me from my iPhone

Recent rumors have stated that Huawei and LG may both be chosen to make new Nexus phones in 2015, which would mark the first time Google has released two flagship Nexus phones in the same year. Android blog Android Pit has added more fuel to these rumors by claiming that LG is indeed interested in making a new Nexus smartphone this year.

According to the source, a new Nexus phone is “under consideration” at LG, although other details have not been shared. It’s also not clear how many Nexus devices Google has planned for this year, or how big these devices are supposed to be.

Previous reports claimed that the bigger Huawei Nexus handset will have a 2K 5.7-inch display from Samsung, while LG will make a smaller 5.2-inch Nexus handset.

Google is expected to announce Android M at Google I/O in a few weeks, and may show off a wide variety of hardware to go with it, including smartwatches, smartphones and tablets.
