Google tends to favor a particular OEM partner for each new version of Android, and while Samsung recently stole the spotlight with two halo devices in a row — the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus smartphones — Bloomberg is reporting that LG is actually the company favored to build the premiere device for the next version of Google TV, when it comes out later this year. The publication's two anonymous sources say that Google is merely "considering" giving LG early access to the software, though, so perhaps it's not a done deal. Earlier this week, we heard that Google TV will get yearly upgrades, including one by the end of 2012. If you're curious what the current state of GTV is like, we've got plenty of impressions in our CES 2012 hands-on coverage!
