The second-gen Nexus 7 may only be a week old at this point, but that does nothing to stop rumors of the third-gen Nexus 7 from spreading like a wildfire. Today, we are hearing reports that the next Nexus 7 device could be built by LG, Lenovo, or Samsung.

The reports are coming in from DigiTimes as well as Android Beat, though neither show any concrete evidence of why Google would chose to dump its current manufacturing partner, ASUS, for either of the three companies. The only reason we could possibly come up with would be that ASUS wants to raise the price of the device and that Google is having none of it. I think that ASUS will retain the manufacturing contract and the Nexus 7 III will be ASUS branded.
