Next Nexus Smartphone to be Manufactured by Lenovo?


    When Google decided to sell off Motorola to Lenovo, the one basic question that plagued many a fans' minds was as to what the future of the Nexus line of smartphones will be. Apparently, a new report discusses the same issue while also revealing that Lenovo might be the one who makes the next Nexus device and that it might be the last of its kind in the Nexus family.


    Prominent Russian tech guru and blogger Eldar Murtazin recently took to Twitter following Google's decision to sell off Motorola to Lenovo where he revealed that the next Nexus handset will arrive via Lenovo and it will be the last inclusion to the already popular Nexus family.

    "Lenovo will launch one of the last Nexus product :) volume will be huge and it will be focused on US market," Murtazin wrote.

    "Nexus line by Google is over in 2015 ;) Yes - this line will be replaced by Play Edition (current name, it will be rebranded)," he added.

    As of now, although Lenovo has found a much bigger audience following and market in Asia, the company has struggled quite a bit to break into the U.S. Market - which can be considered as the hotbed of global success. And although the company might try to get into that market with the help of its tablet offerings (like Lenovo Yoga), it is more than certain that a stronger base is required to stay in that market.

    While nothing has been finalized officially as of now, and everything Murtazin revealed has to be taken with a pinch of salt for now, the last time the Nexus line was in news was when it was rumored that Motorola will be looking to make the Nexus 5 (codename Moto X, at that time). And while that never happened, it is to be seen if the Lenovo-Nexus combination eventually works out.


    Only time will tell.
