A new report from The Telegraph claims that Google is in the works of building its own smartphone which would be released by the end of the year. It’s speculated that this phone would be the 2016 Nexus, however if a recent specs leak of the upcoming device indicates anything, this report is completely false.
Okay, so maybe not completely false. See, we already know that Google’s modular smartphone project Ara is gonna meet the public’s eye in real life sooner than later which assures us that there is a Google-built smartphone in our future, however since that device won’t be released until at least 2017, The Telegraph’s report seems to point more toward a standard Nexus device. But as previously mentioned, it’s looking more and more like HTC will be building this year’s Android N showcase with a 5-inch 1080p display and 4GB of RAM. However, if you remain optimistic after all this (like I am), you’ll soon speculate that it’s possible this upcoming HTC-built device will be the third-gen Nexus 5 while the Google-built handset will be the flagship Nexus everyone will try to get their hands on.
While this possibility isn’t too far-fetched, Google may have this same idea in their heads. I can’t say that the company’s produced their own Nexus before and prove my theory is great, but it’s still something to base our speculations off of.
