New nexus devices are coming song and Google TV is also expect in near future. HTC is working on Nexus 8. Is it time for new Nexus devices?
Google’s operating system is installed on almost three quarters of all mobile devices sold, and these devices are now outselling PCs. But is market dominance where the similarities end?
Fish and Android would have little do with each other if it weren’t for Google’s practice of code naming the next Nexus to be released after a different sea creature: the Nexus 4 was codenamed Mako, the Nexus 10 was Manta, the Nexus 5 was Hammerhead, while Nexus 7 in 2012 was Grouper, followed 2013’s Razor. So, references found in Android 4.4.3 changelogs published on the Android Open Source Project last week to Flounder, made in connection with HTC, have sparked speculation the Taiwanese company will be building a new Nexus device.
While the changelogs in question have been taken down from the Android Git repositories, a copy is still available on GitHub, referencing “project device/htc/flounder”. Its appearance in ASOP followed a similar reference in the Chromium issue tracker.
While it’s not much to go by, it has spurred questions about what kind of device is HTC likely to make, assuming it has been brought into the Nexus-making fold alongside LG, Asus and to an extent, Samsung. Some reports, based on an April story by DigiTimes, suggest that HTC is working on an eight-inch Nexus 8.
However, as other reports have noted, HTC has been out of the tablet game for some time, having not made a tablet since the 7-inch HTC Flyer and 10-inch Jetstream some years ago.
On the other hand, Google only released the Nexus 5 alongside its KitKat update late last year. Is it time for a new Nexus smartphone yet?
