Is Google ending its Nexus smartphone lineup?

May 2, 2014



Google is all set to introduce a high-end ‘Silver’ smartphone program soon, a report on The Information suggests. This will reportedly replace the company’s popular Nexus smartphone line, bringing an end to the affordable yet high-performing Android handsets.

The report claims that Google will work with manufacturers and carriers to produce phones that “closely adhere to Google specifications” and plans to invest $1 billion into the project.

It is not clear how these new lineup of phones will differ from the Google Play editions of handsets offered by the likes of Samsung, HTC and Sony. However, the new phones may allow users to delete pre-installed apps, or limit how many non-Google apps can be pre-loaded.

The Silver program will only launch in the United States initially.
