Google, the designers of Android are now considering multiple manufacturers to build the next generation Nexus smartphone powered by Android 5.0 Jelly Bean. The previous Nexus smartphones were manufactured by Samsung and have set industry standard for Android devices. Google had also acquired Motorola and it may also roll out the next Nexus with it this fall. Combined with the Nexus tablet Google is rumored to release this month it can be a reckoning of good times for Android.
The news comes from Wall Street Journal report which has a pretty good past record of predicting details about future releases. Google had launched the Nexus One with direct to consumer portal and later models the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus were sold via third parties and mobile carriers.
Google is trying hard with its Nexus series to provide the best user experience and enhance the market capitalization of Android. The highly anticipated Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has witnessed very lackluster performance with just about a fraction of devices getting their updates. One of the most awaited smartphone of 2012, the Samsung Galaxy S III also has received very critical reviews and is expecting a lower reception comparatively than its competitor the iPhone.
With Google acquiring Motorola it is obviously trying to manufacture the hardware in house and provide a complete package just like Apple. However it is till now not evident that Motorola will manufacture the next Nexus. Android 5.0 Jelly Bean and next Nexus surely exerts Google’s effort to revamp its image in the smartphone industry.
