Google drops Nexus, Android Silver could launch in February 2015
Although this has not been officially confirmed yet, it looks like Google's mobile ecosystem will soon face a few major changes. First, there will be no more launches of Google Nexus devices. Second, Android Silver will replace the Nexus program. If all the recent rumors regarding this matter prove to be true, one of the first Android Silver devices will come from LG.
A few tweets by notorious leakster evleaks reinforced the older rumors about the Nexus program, as well as recent leaks concerning the upcoming Android Silver . This project promises to bring a set of rules for manufacturers and to focus on quick software updates and on delivering an improved stock Android experience.
The first tweet by evleaks reads "There is no Nexus 6. Farewell, Nexus." but a few hours another one follows - "Android Silver, circa February 2015."
In addition to the above, evleaks also revealed that US carrier Sprint will launch a LG handset powered by a Qualcomm MSM8994 processor as successor of the Nexus 6 initiative and one of the first Android Silver handsets. No date has been given yet for its release and none of the rumors mentioned above has been confirmed so far.
