The Nexus line of Google smartphones has been something of a hit for Google in the past couple of years. The hardware specs have been getting better, and the more affordable price tag has worked in Google’s favor too. That being said, many are wondering the rumors are true and that the Nexus lineup could be killed off.
According to the rumors, the Nexus lineup could be cancelled in favor of the Google’s Android Silver program, however according to a recent post by Ausdroid, they claim that one of their sources has informed them that the Nexus lineup will continue to live on, at least for one more device in the form of the Nexus 6.
Previously it had been rumored that the Nexus 6 could be killed off in favor of Android Silver, but now their sources inform them that it is still on. They claim that the device will pack a larger 5.5-inch display, which is an increase of 0.5-inches from the Nexus 5. Unfortunately they did not mention who might be in charge of making the device.
Just last week LG confirmed that they would not be making the Nexus 6. It is unclear if they were simply being coy because they didn’t want to raise any suspicion or if it’s because it was simply the truth. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but hopefully Google will have some news for us later this week during Google I/O.
