Carriers have officially ruined the best thing about Nexus smartphones and tablets

Carriers have officially ruined the best thing about Nexus smartphones and tablets

The most important feature of Nexus smartphones and tablets is the software. These devices are specifically crafted by Google and its partners so that the latest pure Android version can be shown off in all its glory and used by smartphone owners and developers as soon as Google releases it. However, moving forward, Nexus devices may not receive new Android OS updates as quickly as they used to, at least those handsets and tablets that are sold by carriers. More →

Android vendors reportedly shot down Google’s bold anti-fragmentation plan

Android Silver was supposed to be Google’s next-gen line of high-end devices that would offer users access to top hardware and a stock Android experience. While the Search giant never confirmed these plans, reports said that Google wanted to replace Nexus and Google Play Edition smartphones and tablets with Android Silver, with some people even claiming the Nexus 6 might have been sacrificed in the process.

However, it turned out that Google had to postpone its Android Silver plans, and the company confirmed soon after I/O 2014 that it isn’t interested in dumping the Nexus device line. More →

Google to reportedly discontinue beloved Nexus device lineup next year

Google to reportedly discontinue beloved Nexus device lineup next year

Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin said on Twitter that the Nexus line of devices will be discontinued in 2015, replaced instead with a new brand spawned from the current Play Edition family. Google has launched various Play Edition devices this year, including the HTC One, the Samsung Galaxy S4, the LG G Pad 8.3, the Sony Z Ultra and the Motorola Moto G. Essentially these devices run a pure version of Android, with no OEM user interface and bloatware on top. However, these devices aren’t updated directly by Google, but by OEMs, meaning that new Android OS versions first reach Nexus devices, and only later Google Play Edition devices. More →

LG Google Nexus Smartphone Images Leak

LG (06657011) and Google (GOOG) are believed to be working on a new Nexus smartphone together. Following Tuesday’s leak, xda developers forum member “4shael” posted two clearer images of the purported LG Nexus smartphone. 4shael also reports that the device has a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage (no microSD card slot), an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 1,184 x 768 at 320 pixels per inch and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. 4shael says the device is about as large as the Galaxy Nexus and doesn’t have LTE, but does have DC-HSDPA — though it is possible that the companies are working on several versions of the smartphone. The Verge also managed to get its hands on a Carphone Warehouse inventory listing that shows “LG Nexus4 Black” and “LG Nexus4 White” placeholders. LG’s Google Nexus smartphone is expected to be announced by the end of October. More →
