Google once again rumored to be killing off the Nexus smartphone line

The inevitable death of Google’s Nexus line is looking imminent. Following reports suggesting a new “Android Silver” program would see Google take control of its mobile future, @evleaks on Friday said that there indeed won’t be a Nexus 6. Guess that Chromium reference was nothing more than a dead end. But don’t worry, apparently a “silver lining” to this disappointing news. 

If you’re waiting for Google to release the Nexus 6, notorious smartphone leaker Evleaks has some potentially bad news for you. In a pair of cryptic tweets, the insider suggested that Google will abandon its Nexus line of devices in favor of an Android Silver program.  To be fair, this particular rumor has been making its way around the mill for months now, but Evleaks’ latest tweets lend further credence to it. The Information reported in April that Android Silver will serve as a program for top Android smartphones that adhere to certain requirements, such as limited pre-installed apps and timely software updates. Google would then offer to help pay for advertising and in-store placements for devices and partners in the program.
