The Nexus 6 may be coming from the most unexpected source

Despite what many rumors said about the possibility of a Nexus smartphone being made by this particular company in previous years, it appears Motorola had to be bought and sold by Google to get an actual chance to making a Nexus smartphone. Following all the rumors that claimed Google is getting ready to discontinue the Nexus smartphone line next year, the company denied such plans at I/O 2014, suggesting a Nexus 6 is indeed in the making. And Android Police says that phone, dubbed Shamu, may be a 5.9-inch Motorola beast. More →

Expect Nexus devices this year, as Google won’t ditch them in favor of Android Silver

Some reports have revealed that Google plans to ditch the Nexus family of devices next year and replace it with an Android Silver line that would consist of high-end devices running a stock Android version, much like Google Play Edition devices. Moreover, a report claimed a Nexus 6 would not be launched this year, somewhat further backed up by LG, which recently denied plans to build such a device for Google this year. However, Google head of Android engineering and the Nexus program at Google told ReadWrite that the Nexus line isn’t going anywhere, which seems to indicate that a Nexus 6 smartphone is still in the cards, just as a recent rumor suggested.

The Nexus 6 might not be dead after all

Recent reports have claimed that Google won’t be making a Nexus 6 smartphone this year, and will instead replace the Nexus family with a new Android Silver line of premium devices. What’s more, LG has also denied that it’s working on such a smartphne, which is significant because LG was responsible for developing the last major Nexus smartphone, the Nexus 5. However, Ausdroid has learned from “a source within Google who is close to the project” that the Nexus 6 is still very much in the picture and will be launched later this year. More →

But Murtazin’s revelations were soon backed by reports detailing Android Silver, a new Google initiative supposed to replace the Nexus line. More →

Did Lenovo just buy itself the next Nexus?

In an unexpected move, Google on Wednesday announced that it sold Motorola Mobility to Lenovo for close to $3 billion, although the Search giant will still keep some parts of Moto, including the patents it acquired to defend Android. However, Lenovo may also walk away with a perk of its own, an inclusion in the Nexus family, if one of Eldar Murtazin’s newest tweets is to be believed. More →
