Google confirms no plans for future Nexus devices
posted by Michael H. / Oct 04, 2016, 9:09 PM
Google executives confirmed the news to various outlets after the Pixel announcement earlier today, which completes the pivot Google is making. The Nexus line at its core was always designed to be developer devices and reference devices for Google to showcase what it thought OEMs should do with Android devices. There will always be a need for developer devices and maybe Google will offer deals on the Pixel, but there's no real reason for Nexus reference devices anymore.
Now, Google is making a serious push into Apple's territory with a suite of hardware products tied together with software. Google started the marketing push early, but we'll have to see if Google can get away with charging the same as other top tier OEMs for hardware. It hasn't worked well in the past, but maybe the Google logo will carry more weight than the Nexus logo did.

OIS, 6gb RAM, bloatfree, proper flagship specs with reasonable price. Pixel failed to be new Nexus, oneplus is the new Nexus, no matter how much you deny

Nexus line was always about "Affordability First" and "The pure experience"... But now they're trying hard to put this 'Pixel' range inline with the likes of iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S7... Okay, fine... But does these Phone look 'premium' to you with those big-ish bezels and AndroidOne inspired design? They look... Bland and just... 'Regular'... Even Huawei's 5X or perhaps P9 Lite look more premium... And they cost about 1\3rd... And lets not forget OnePlus 3... Half the price (compared to XL), near stock experience, sleek body and fast updates with 6Gigs of RAM... I suppose The Nexus 6P was the best Phone ever 'rolled' out of Google... And I'm about to grab one... G'Day!

Both have an X in the middle, however I do agree with you. I'm going to hang on to my 6P and pick up a 7 Plus to enjoy the best of both worlds. I'll pick up a Pixel in a few months when Google drops the prices, which I have no problem with might I add. My 6P is still a beast.

I think you might be waiting for a long time. With Pixel devices Google doesn't like dropping prices.

Nexus main attraction has always been their stock launcher and low price. If you take the lower price away will see whether it will still sell well. There are cheaper alternative from Chinese OEM will be on a look out for them. Don't be evil say nothing about greed i guess.

Maybe the day people realize pixel is not Nexus and stop comparing the two then you'll live a better life. If you can't afford it then don't buy it simple stop complaining.

It's not that, It's because the company who made the Nexus brand suddenly stopped doing it and started making a totally new brand (Pixel). If they made the Pixel brand ALONG the Nexus brand, things will be different in the internet my friend.
