New Delhi: In what comes as a shock, Google reportedly will discontinue its Nexus lineup next year, and may replace its popular Nexus lineup with its Play Edition family. Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin, who has a proven track record when it comes to providing insider information, gave away the news in a tweet. His tweet reads, "Nexus line by Google is over in 2015 ;) Yes - this line will be replaced by Play Edition (current name, it will be rebranded)."
The Russian blogger, however, did not reveal from where he had received this information. Besides the demise of the Nexus family, he tweeted in his following tweets other bits of information regarding the cross-licensing patent deal that recently took place between Samsung and Google. He said Samsung will not only get patents for Google, but will also secure hardware development, hinting the arrival of the Google Play Edition devices from Samsung in the near future.
He further said that Samsung will stop develop Tizen smartphones in the future.
