When it seemed that the subject of Android Silver It had been settled with the departure of one of its managers from the Mountain View company, a new source suggests that the project is still alive and as mentioned, will happen to the Google Play Edition denomination. In fact, he dares to say that in a short time it could be presented and the assumption 5.2 inch Nexus 6 It would be the first representative of this range, although logically it would have a different name.
It is very common in this sector to find cross information. Sources from both sites that ensure totally different things. For a while there was a lot of talk about Android Silver, a project that Google was working on to replace the denomination Google Play Edition which accompanies the terminals that are sold from the official store of the company with a pure version of the operating system. It was said that the Nexus family would disappear in favor of this alternative.
Where I said I say, I say Diego. When it seemed that Android Silver would be the future of devices under the mantle of Google, a way to please its manufacturers without harming its ecosystem, it began to turn againstto declare him officially dead with the march of one of those responsible. Although it does not sound the same force as before, we will give it time, a new source has announced that they are moving forward and we will soon have news.
They tell us from Android Help the arguments of this source: they never terminated this idea and it is still among their plans to withdraw the Google Play Edition terminals that they will become Android Silver. What will be the first Android Silver? One of the protagonists of the last weeks has been the Nexus 6. It is expected that the terminal will be presented in the middle of this month and according to the specifications that have been known, will have a screen of 5.9 inches. You will remember that some time ago it was rumored that they could go on sale two versions of the Nexus 6, this and one of 5.2 inches, to respond to users who do not conceive the purchase of a terminal of such dimensions.
Well, this 5.2-inch Nexus 6 would have the honor of releasing the new Android Silver range, obviously under another name That is unknown. I would be accompanied by Motorola Moto S, a 5.9 inch phablet. Does it sound to you? Truly everything would fit in this way, which makes us doubt that this story could have been built on the basis of all the previous rumors, making sense of terminals that had remained in the "limbo." Anyway, we can not rule out options, we will remain attentive to tell you any news.
