The honeymoon period with the new Nexus 7 hasn’t exactly expired yet, and folks are already talking about what the 2014 version might entail. Well, one analyst thinks Google could be breaking things off with ASUS and going with a certain South Korean manufacturer for its next rendition. That manufacturer would be LG. The prediction comes from analyst Ming-Chi-Kuo, who seems to have quite the decent track record.

Apparently, LG’s major positioning in the display manufacturing market would make the company an ideal match to make Google’s next 7-inch wonder. The fact that Google and LG have already collaborated on the Nexus 4 smartphone can’t hurt, either. Of course, Samsung also has a big hand in the display pot, though the company is already responsible for Google’s biggest (literal) tablet.

Of course, it’s entirely too early to guess what sort of specs we’d find inside a 2014 Nexus 7, but if the version we’ve had our hands on for the past week is anything to go by, we shouldn’t have anything to worry about. Would you want LG to be responsible for the next generation Nexus 7 tablet, or should ASUS hold on to the reigns for another year?
