New devices could be set to land later this year...

There's been plenty of rumours in the past few months as to Googles plans for its Nexus devices, ranging from the outright dumping of the sub-brand to pushing it down the pecking order to be replaced by more high-end devices, however it looks as though we'll definitely see a new smartphone and tablet coming in the near future if some snippets found within Chromium code

Although short on information beyond the device names, the findings point at the fact that the devices are, at the very least, being planned by Google. Whether they'll be developed by LG (smartphone) and Asus (tablet) remains to be seen, although it's highly probable given the fact that both manufacturers have worked on the last two iterations of each.

There had been reports in recent weeks that the handset set to be unveiled by LG later this month, the LG G3, could potentially be the next Nexus handset, but that's looking increasingly unlikely, unless the company is planning to release a self-branded version followed by a Nexus branded one later in the year - although given the budget pricing scheme used by Google, that would surely prove counter productive and ultimately affect sales of LG's own branded version of the device.

Whatever the findings mean, it's surely more good news for those who enjoy getting value for money!
