The rumour of the Android Silver project has become a reality. As previously reported here, Android Silver would replace the Nexus program from 2015 onwards. While it is a heart wrenching news to us in techENT, the Android Silver program can benefit Android in more than one way. For starters users can choose between multiple models and make, then choose whichever Android Silver phone that they think suits them, albeit at a higher price than the Nexus.
With the Android Silver project we are expecting that stock android will come to hardwares like Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC m8 One, and of course the LG G3. Now there are rumors saying that whatever the equivalent of the Nexus 6 in the Android Silver program would run on the super high tech Snapdragon 810 processor. The 810 Snapdragon would have 8 cores effectively making it an octacore chip. The best part though is that it is a 64-bit processor like the one you would find on the new iPhone 5s. This could mark the entrance of Android in the 64-bit operating system. Problem is, the Snapdragon 810 processor was just announced last month and none of the current flagships are sporting the processor yet. The good news is we are expecting the Snapdragon 810 processor to be in flagships during the first half of next year which would land perfectly on when the Android Silver “Nexus 6” would be announced. We’re keeping our fingers crossed. Are You?
