Kim Won, the vice president of LG Mobile in Europe has made it very clear that the company would not follow Samsung’s footsteps in marketing devices and is not planning to produce a Nexus 5 either, in an interview with Dutch website All About Phones during the unveiling of the vanilla white Nexus 4 on Tuesday. He stressed that it will have no added value for LG without their own skins.
LG has changed its perception about tablet market too and new Android tablets will also be launched soon by the company after releasing some hybrid tablets last year as referred by Kim. He also noted about the duopoly of Apple and Google and wished to minimize its reliance on these companies by using the Firefox OS or other systems.
Kim’s statement was misinterpreted and clarified by senior official of LG that it would certainly like to collaborate with Google if opportunities are given.
The white Nexus 4 is coming up on May 29 in Hong Kong followed by Asia, Middle East, North America, and Europe. This recent model is merely a color upgrade with vanilla white finish at the back and sides and also a 4.7-inch display, 8-megapixel camera, a Snapdragon processor without LTE.
