LAS VEGAS: KOREAN ELECTRONICS FIRMLG hinted on Monday that it is planning to develop more Nexus devices in partnership with Google, which might well debut at MWC next month.

LG Electronics SVP James Fisher went off on a tangent during the firm's packed press conference at CES this morning, revealing that the LG Nexus 4 is just "the first of many" Nexus products it is working on, and hinting that the two companies might be secretly developing another smartphone or tablet device.

Fisher said, "Through our collaboration with Google, we launched the LG Nexus 4 smartphone. This is the first of many devices to come from our growing partnership with this very selective company."

Although LG almost announced that it will be making another Nexus device, we find this quite hard to believe, after Google blamed LG for the lack of Nexus 4 handsets available to buy. However, although we might find it a bit bizarre, we could be seeing LG's next Nexus device as early as next month.

Speaking during today's press conference, Fisher added that the firm will be launching its next generation smartphones at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month, rather than at CES.

"At Mobile World Congress next month and throughout the year, you'll see us bring to market more tier-one premium handsets in various screen sizes," he said.

It remains unclear whether we'll be seeing any LG branded Nexus device(s) at MWC next month, and LG was unable to reveal any further details. µ
