The pact is an advancement made by LG, which also makes Android smartphones. The sharing of patents could also prove to be a help for both the companies in optimizing their individual products. Presently, LG is the fourth largest smartphone maker, it also manufactures Android wearables such as smartwatches.

J.H. Lee, executive vice president and head of the LG Electronics Intellectual Property Center said, “LG values its relationship with Google, and this agreement underscores both companies’ commitment to developing new products and technologies that enhance consumers’ lives,” He said.
