What’s Silver Certification? Well, it's supposed to be a new Google program which encourages the company’s hardware partners to build high-end devices with a limited number of non-Google apps. Last we heard, LG and Motorola were willing to join this program.
Of course, we can’t be sure of anything until official details about this arrive.
The last two Nexus smartphones, the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 (both manufactured by LG), offered - and still offer - great value for the money, so lots of customers are certainly looking forward to seeing a sequel this year. We seriously hope there will be one, even if it turns out that it’s not called Nexus 6.
