Google’s next flagship Nexus phone will be made by Samsung, according to a DigiTimes report.Assuming DigiTimes is correct, it seems a bit strange that Google wouldn’t pick Motorola to make the new Nexus. We already know Google has plans to make its own Android hardware once its acquisition of Motorola is finalised.
But if you think about it, it makes sense to give the Nexus to Samsung for this year. Google’s Android partners are already freaking out that Motorola will get favourable treatment. This could help calm some nerves for the time being.
