Android Silver will replace Google’s inexpensive smartphone initiative

We are now going to have a premium version of the Android which is being transformed into Android Silver. This effort is coming as a new software standard as well as a certification process which is coming as a replacement for the Nexus program. This piece of information comes from The Information and according to them Google, which is behind the unleashing of the open source software, is going to pair with multiple OEMs including Motorola and LG. The result of this is going to be a more unified idea of Android hardware and software which is somewhat similar to what Apple and BlackBerry design.

This new program is more or less going to have its resemblance with Nexus since it will offer speedy updates and direct support but at the same time it will largely differ on the idea of having and expanding the “stock” Android. It has been a while since Google has been playing around with the idea of adding unique features to its Nexus devices, such as Photo Sphere and during the recent days Google Now launcher and Android Silver will heavily expand upon those principles. Just like the devices from Samsung, HTC, Sony and many other manufacturers, the Android Silver certification handsets will also have unique features and capabilities that Google will keep closed off to other OEMs and custom ROM creators.

The Android Open Source Project will not cease to exist after this and it will largely remain as a basis for all OEM software. The Silver is merely creating a new version of Android which is more premium and is there to attract those customers who are willing to pay the price for a truly premium experience.
