LG will be taking a pass on making a Nexus device this year. According to a report from CNET, an LG executive confirmed at Mobile World Congress that "LG needs to focus on its own brand." Supposedly, LG is "totally happy" with the work it did on the previous Nexus phones as well as their relationship with Google. He further added that the G5 project requires a great deal of resources that will be better spent on its own phones.

This has not been confirmed by Google when reached for comment, and LG has yet to publicly confirm it either, yet we would not be surprised if it turns out to be true. The question remains, "Who will be making Nexus devices in 2016?"

Google Nexus 5X Price Drops by $30

It looks like Google is trying to add an extra incentive for folks to consider the Nexus 5X. They just dropped its online price by $30. That means the 16GB version is $349 and the 32GB version is $399 (previously $379 & $429 respectively), for the unlocked version of the Nexus 5X.


This seems like the perfect "sweet spot" for this device and probably should have been its retail price from the get go. Regardless, we can't fault Google for wanting to pad their margins with the latest Nexus device. They usually make very little to nothing on their Nexus line anyway (after you figure in development costs and advertising).


Here's the Google Play Store link to the LG-Made Nexus 5X: Nexus 5X - Fingerprint Scanner - LG - Nexus - Android Phones - Google Store

The Nexus Root Toolkit is still the easiest way to Root your phone. It also does things like unlock your bootloader, install custom recovery, and flash stock images to unbrick your phone. The utility is able to find and download pretty much anything you need so this is a one stop shop for everything. Wugfresh has just updated it to version 2.1.1. The latest version adds full marshmallow automation for NRT functions, new system that doesn't really on modified boot images but uses TWRP's adb root shell instead, automated features now work in any build mode, nexus player scripts have been updated, and bugs have been fixed.

This one tool will work with every Nexus device and it does not matter which build of Android you are running. The utility also downloads and installs the proper fastboot drivers which means you don't have to install the full SDK in order for your phone to be recognized by the PC. Head to the link below to grab this toolkit.

Gold Colored Nexus 6P Might Launch in US Soon & Google Might Sell it at Best Buy

The only way to get the gold version of the Google Nexus 6P is to get it in Japan; however, that might change soon. According to the latest Nexus rumors, Google might be getting ready to sell the gold version in the US as well.

That's not the only good news regarding the device. According to the source of this intel, Google may start selling the Nexus 6P in Best Buy as well (just as they currently do with the Nexus 5X). If they decide to do both at the same time, then that would be a nice bonus for folks who would want the gold version, and want to play with the phone before they buy it. We will keep an eye out for official confirmation.
