Google rumored to dump Asus, turn to LG for next-gen Nexus 7 tablet

Nexus 7 2014 LG

Early responses to Google’s refreshed Nexus 7 tablet have been very positive, but that apparently might not stop Asus from losing its Nexus contract. According to a research note from plugged-in KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo picked up by 9to5Google, Google will likely dump Asus for its 2014 Nexus 7 model and instead turn to LG to build the device. LG has previously manufactured the Nexus 4, so this wouldn’t be the first time the two companies collaborated on a pure Google device. According to Kuo’s note, new display technology will be a main focus of Google’s next Nexus 7 tablet.
