Rumours that Google has tapped up LG to build a new Nexus device have resurfaced in the Korean media.
The report claims the engineers are still there, and plan to visit LG’s various subsidiaries, including LG Innotek and LG Display.
There’s no saying for sure that such a visit would indicate LG’s involvement with Nexus, and the visit could be little more than hearsay anyway.
Importantly though, this news follows on from earlier reports that suggested LG would be one of two manufacturers working on this year’s Nexus device line-up – the other OEM being Huawei.
It’s still not clear which manufacturer will produce the smartphone and which will produce the tablet, however.

Recent rumours suggested that Huawei would be handling the smartphone, which would land as the Chinese company’s first Nexus device.
That would leave LG manufacturing the tablet, which would also be a new venture for the firm, having never produced a Nexus tablet.
LG’s Nexus smartphones however, were very well received, so perhaps Google is eyeing up the firm to make a new smartphone and restore consumer faith in the Nexus line.
