Could the Google Nexus 5 be the last Nexus-branded smartphone? If yes, it looks like Google will replace the series with a so-called Silver Certification program...

Well now that will be a major loss for those who want a less than $300 device with +5inch FHD display, latest CPU, the stock Android Experience (incl. updates straight from the big G). I've seen many people (iPhone, WP, BB and Symbian users) buy a Nexus so to just get as to get a good taste of Android and become huge fans.

Looking forward to them 'Silver Certified' devices, I wonder if the GS5 Prime and Htc One Prime aren't part of that to, hmmm...

Android Silver is looking at LG and Motorola, rumors say Google was actually doing it in part 'cuz of what Samsung is today (going tizen and all), beats me how far true that is but it kinda shows by Google's reaction to Samsung's over-customization of Android (Magazine UX)

Oh yup, you're right. Furthermore, the 2012 Nexus 7 was $199 at launch.

Isn't it amazing the things you can learn by just taking 30 seconds to check facts?

well EV leaks has been wrong before ...but its rare. usually a pretty reliable source. So sad to see some of the best phones leave. If Google is not in charge of the google silver updates, then i really will be upset. to bad to see the best brand of phones come to a stop.

So they've pulled the plug? The right time for some OEM to come up with a Nexus branded knock off running on Cyanogenmod.

Does that mean I can sell my Nexus 4 on a higher price? :/

the old nexus phones don't become more expensive just because newer ones aren't coming.
but you can still sell the nexus 4 for a higher price if you sell it in countries where nexus phones aren't sold by google because it such countries, they are sold at high prices in the websites like ebay etc and that too without any warranty.

I don't really care, because I already bored with phones.

Looking to get a watch with Android Wear. Now that gets me excited.

My awesome N5 should serve me well for the next few years.

I don't really care. The 16gigs version has almost the same price tag as the 32gigs G2 here, in Indonesia.

The Nexus line up offers great specs at super low prices. The Nexus 5 is a great phone and its priced really well. Google shouldn't discontinue the Nexus line up IMO, as its the only source to get smooth performance and stock Android phones with high end specs.

I own a Nexus phone and although price was a factor my main reason to buy a Nexus phone was been able to have an android phone without all those useless applications . Even the pure android software has way too many applications that I wish i was able to erase.

T Mobile phones tend to have no junk on them. The Nexus 5 was a pretty great phone, though...

I am pretty pissed actually since the Nexus 5 2014 was the phone that could have saved 2014 from being the worst Android year in a long time.

Sad, if true.
Though my feeling is I don't believe this to be true yet.
