Google Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P will be Replaced by Pixel 2
After a long time of waiting, Samsung has finally unveiled its Galaxy S8 flagship smartphone. The reason why this is such an important matter is because it forces other smartphone manufacturers such as Apple and Google to refresh their smartphone offerings as well. While the entire world is rumoring about Apple’s upcoming iPhone 8, Google is preparing something big. The Android parent has confirmed that it’s going to launch Pixel 2 during 2017 and that it’s going to “stay premium” according to Google’s Senior VP.
Pixel over Nexus
While the fact that Google is adding the finishing touches to Pixel 2 might be great news for Android fans, the Nexus community has an entirely different opinion. Google has made no effort to keep secret the fact that its plan is to replace the Nexus smartphone lineup with the newer Pixel devices. In fact, Google has actually receive huge amounts of criticism for the way it conducts its business because there are smartphones such as Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P which promise a complete “Android” experience and the fact that Google is giving up on them, it means that Google is breaking that promise.
Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P
Nexus 5X and 6P are the two of the most popular Android smartphones ever made. The two are considered as being consumer-favorites since they offer impressive performances for affordable prices. In addition, the best thing about Nexus 5X and 6P is the fact that Google is providing them with its latest operating system updates, but this looks like it’s going to change in the not so far away future.
There are many reasons to why everyone believes that Google is getting ready to get rid of Nexus 5X and 6P. However the most important one of them is the fact that Google has already removed the two smartphones from its online Store. The only reason why Google has done that is to make room for the newer Pixel and Pixel XL.
Leaving Nexus 5X and 6P aside, Android fans are in for a great treat this year. Pixel 2 is expected to become the most powerful Android smartphone ever made. Considering the fact that Google’ own Senior VP has confirmed that Pixel 2 will “remain premium”, we think it’s safe to assume that Pixel 2 will be equipped with impressive hardware such as Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 CPU.
