Nexus 4, 10 and 7 (2012) might still be prepped for Android M, code updates reveal

Android M Might Be Coming to Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and Nexus 7 (2012) After All
Oh, Google, why do you tease us like that? Just like with the announcement that the Galaxy Nexus won't be getting Android 4.4 KitKat, Google issued a warning that Android M won't be coming to the oldie Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and Nexus 7 (2012). Well, Google kept its claim when it comes to the Galaxy Nexus, but those three might have a different fate.

When fiddling around the AOSP repositories of the Nexus 10, codenamed manta, a fresh update from May 28th was found, marked as “android-m-preview.” Similar code updates were found for the Nexus 4, dubbed mako, and the Nexus 7 Wi-Fi version, known as "grouper." While Google might just be playing around with those, and the upcoming Android M build, the sheer fact that it is committing valuable resources to the aging Nexus group, might bode well for a pleasant Android M surprise for their owners at some point.
