According to some of the persistent reports that are appearing online, the flagship smartphone of Google, Nexus 6, is not to be released in 2014. The reports are also claiming that the launch will not be happening in 2015 as Google is presently working towards a project known for now as Android Silver.
Android Silver is believed to be producing premium devices operating on the Google mobile platform, and upon the execution of this, the Nexus line of products will simply be redundant. The company is targeting to materialize the project in 2015.
Tech blogger Eldar Murtazin has earlier mentioned that the Nexus brand will be retired in 2015. However, in recent reports, it appeared that the phasing out period has been advanced and its first surprise target is the Nexus 6.
As it is being suggested that the company has dropped plans to release Nexus 6, so it is advisable to know about some alternatives.
The LG G3 will be one option that is likely to be launched as a real powerhouse, with positioning itself as one of the most powerful Android handsets available in the market, equipped with top-notch specifications and features.
The upcoming LG G3 smartphone is expected to have Qualcomm’s latest quad-core mobile processor as well as a high screen resolution. The smartphone is also assumed to be having a screen size of 5.5 inches apart from a Quad HD (QHD) resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. It would be powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor under the hood, clocked at 2.5GHz and paired with a hefty 3GB of RAM. The smartphone would also sport a 16-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter.
Meanwhile, the Moto X+1 would be another option to look out for. The smartphone is likely to have a quad-core Snapdragon chip along with a 5-inch screen size in 1080p resolution and a 13MP main shooter. It is expected to be powered by Android 4.5. The smartphone would be releasing in September or October 2014 and would be priced at not more than USD400.
