Google has already launched three smartphones out of which one was launched with HTC branding and two were made by Samsung. As Google reveals its plans on the next Nexus smartphone all manufacturers hope to be the one to design the next-gen Nexus. We have the same picture with the carriers because only select ones get the chance to offer the phone in their stores. Nevertheless, sooner or later all companies want to expand and conquer new markets, and Google is no exception. That’s why the software giant has decided to launch five smartphones and tablets via different manufacturers and carriers.
The info comes from the Wall Street Journal, which reports Google is planning to release up to five devices that will be sold directly via its website. What features will the devices come with? Which manufacturers will design them and which carriers will offer them? Out of the five devices how many smartphones and how many tablets will there be? And most importantly, which version of Android will they feature? These are questions of utmost interest to us but which still remain with the question mark hanging on them. Next month the I/O conference will be held. Google is expected to uncover Android 5.0 Jelly Bean there. If Google really does that, then the chances it will appear on those rumored devices will drastically rise.
All in all, the aforementioned doesn’t sound unbelievable. But as long as we have no official statement, the only thing we can do is waiting.
