As per a new report out of Korea, LG could become the manufacturer of the Pixel 3 smartphones from Google. Since HTC won the contract for two years, the Pixel 2 devices will be manufactured by HTC.
The report states that Google is looking for a new partner so it can secure a future supply. And Google is teaming up with LG for that. Furthermore, some Pixel 2 devices could also be manufactured by LG in case supply runs short.
Google also wants to make sure that it gets all the OLED screens from LG it wants. That’s another reason for the partnership, says the report. LG will be making a good profit out of this, even though the Pixel 3 phones won’t carry any LG branding.
In March this year, we told you that LG, TCL, and even Coolpad were competing to get the partnership with Google to make Pixel 3 devices. Now, it looks like LG has won and that’s a good thing. The new LG G6 is a very good looking phone, so you can expect the Pixel 3 devices to be great lookers as well.
