Nexus 6, the upcoming LG made phone from Google is due to hit the market later this year. Rumors suggest that the Nexus 6 will be similar to LG's soon-to-be released G3 phone. Google could announce the next gen Nexus flagship device at its 7th annual conference taking place this summer.

As PCMag reports (March 7), Google’s senior vice president of Android, Chrome and Apps, Sundar Pichai said that the Nexus 6 won’t land anytime soon. "I can assure you it will not be released in the first half of the year," Pichai said during a press conference at Mobile World Congress (MWC 2014) in February.

While Pichai didn't reveal any more details about the Nexus 5 successor, according to Gizmodo Germany it’s a stripped down version of the upcoming LG G3. First rumored for an MWC 2014 announcement, the LG G3 is now tipped for a May or June unveiling. Earlier rumors surrounding the unannounced G3 include a Quad HD 1440p display, a 16MP camera and an octa-core processor. There are also suggestions that the G3’s display will measure 5.5-inches and feature a 64-bit processor.

This year’s annual Google I/O conference is scheduled for June 25-26. There’s a possibility that the Nexus 6 will be announced at the summer event. There are also whispers that along with the Nexus 6, Google could announce an LG manufactured smartwatch. As with all rumors, it's wise to take this information with a grain of salt.

As AndroidGeeks points out, Google's last two Nexus flagship phones, also made by LG were announced in October. The Nexus 4 was announced in October of 2012 and released in November of that year. Last year, the Nexus 5 was announced in October ahead of its November release date.
