Source: LG to make high end Google Silver devices, while Motorola grabs budget segment
The rumours are high that Google soon going to dump their successful Nexus series and going to introduce a whole new standard Smartphones to the users across the world. Well we got some exclusive news from our source earlier this week that from next year their won’t be any more Nexus, but Google Silver device. LG joined hands with Google and is among the first manufacturers to make the most powerful Smartphone till date. But their is not just only one device this time. Google is planning big as our source revealed their will be at least 5 devices including a tablet under the silver lineup. For the top end devices Google rely on LG, but the surprise came to us when we came to know that Lenovo (under the brand name Motorola) has also joined the Silver certification program and will make the budget devices on behalf of Google.
Late last month we heard the rumour that Google is going to launch a budget smartphone - possibly a MediaTek powered budget Nexus device under $100 price tag. Earlier this month we came to know from senior Lenovo official that they’ve indeed working on a Nexus, but the person never revealed that its a high end device or a low budget one. But earlier this week we came to know from our source that possibility is high to see an Android Silver device under Motorola brand name as early as Q1, 2015 along with the high end LG device. Earlier this week popular tipster @evleaks revealed that a LG is already working on a device powered by top notch Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. It will be powered by the Qualcomm MSM8994 (that probably will be the Snapdragon 810).
If various rumours to be believed, Google is desperate to take control of their Android UI and limiting hardware manufacturers from tweaking the stock Android OS. Recently Samsung, LG, Sony, HTC and others are giving too much stress on their own UIs that you will not find pure Android experience on their devices. Through this certification program, Google is trying to set few guidelines for the brands that carry Android OS on their Smartphone.
