Rick Osterloh of the hardware department at Google officially confirmed that his company has already completed the adventure of the series Nexus. Now they count Pixels that some of the features of Android 7.1 Nougat will be exclusive.
Yesterday's conference Google has not been particularly inspiring can, however, can be an important point in the history of American business. The giant made the first step in approaching him to achieve a position similar to that which is Apple, which controls its ecosystem in terms of both software and hardware. What does it mean for us?Pixel Pixel XL and are promoted as smartphones made by Google, which means more or less that it is the company behind the project of smartphones, and HTC only be produced in their factories. This trend is to be continued, so in defiance of tradition External manufacturers will no longer have virtually no effect on smartphones Google Pixel, which are a symbol of the new order. In this order there is no place for smartphones Nexus. Rick Osterloh, former employee of the company Motorola and the current head of hardware Google officially confirmed that his company does not plan to launch any smartphone or tablet with the Nexus line. There will be no wider cooperation with external entities, and Google will probably also sought to independently produce future smartphones Pixel. Google swears not forget Nexus already on the market and still will supply them with updates, according to the official rules of the support. However, the superior position Pixels give themselves felt even here, as Android 7.1 Nougat will go to such smartphones like the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P only at the end of the year, and then only as a beta, so a complete renovation to be expected after the New Year. Unfortunately, at the moment there is no transfer of all the news, some of which will be reserved for Pixel line. These could include:
- Pixel Launcher full version
- Google Assistant,
- unlimited space for photos and videos in all resolutions, including 4K,
- automatically save photos and videos in the cloud, if only in memory runs out of space,
- 24 hour support by phone / internet,
- hello function devices,
- fast copy data between devices, combined with those working under the control of the iOS.
Perhaps in the future Google will change your mind, or magicians of XDA once again do his and everyone will be able to install the same part of the above news on your Nexus, but in spite of all their owners have the right to feel disappointed. It is true that the partial problem is party hardware, but lack components such as the full version of Pixel Launcher or Google Assistant might hurt the true fans of the green robot. I do not want even to mention the loss of confidence in the company – in the end buyer Nexus 5X or Nexus 6P hardly expected this turn of affairs, when they bought hoping for a quick and full updates.Returning to the smartphone Pixel, frankly I'm not particularly impressed them, but I would not say that they are boring. I hope to form an opinion about them when at least one of them will go on longer in my hands – which in the absence of official distribution in Poland may not be so easy.
