Google has officially declared that the Nexus product line up has come to an end. This was pretty much obvious, when the Mountain View company announced the Pixel and the Pixel XL phones, to merge its Pixel line up as a unified hardware brand.
The company’s official Nexus Twitter handle tweeted some posts, thanking Nexus users for their support, while also assuring that it will not abandon support for the devices.
This led to some users asking the inevitable question. Will there be any Nexus devices in the future? And the answer, I am afraid, was negative. This is what the official reply was
We’ll continue to support current Nexus users; there aren’t currently any plans for a future Nexus product
As if Google moving away from stock Android, to a “Google skinned interface”, and with a hefty premium price tag , wasn’t bad enough, the official declaration of the end of the road for the Nexus devices, is truly a sad day indeed. Google has already de-listed the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P from its Store, but the devices will still be sold via third party stores and retailers for a while, until stocks last.
Farewell Nexus, you shan’t be forgotten.
