After launching Moto X smartphone, Motorola is rumoured to be working on next generation Nexus smartphone, if Taylor Wimberly (Android & Me fame) is to be believed. However Wimberley has not provided any concrete information regarding his claim, but considering his past record with Motorola related news, this recent rumour can’t be underestimated.
While, it won’t be very surprising to see a Motorola made Nexus smartphone, but we have also heard reports of a Moto X Google Play version and if the latter is indeed true then making a second similar device does not make more sense.
Also, Google would like to keep Motorola as visibly separate from it as possible, to not antagonize other Android manufacturers by showing that Motorola is getting any kind of favourable treatment for being a Google-owned company.
Well, until we see any credible proof of Moto-made Nexus or any other company made Nexus smartphone, this is all just speculation. So, we will reserve our judgement till any real leaks or credible reports arrive.
