The Nexus line was, for a period of time, to present to manufacturers what it was possible with high end specs and the latest version of Android. Since manufacturers start to pay attention to high end specs and innovate, Google started to put more attention to brought users an high end phone with a reasonable price. But even now, the price may not be so attractive for some people but a solution may be on the horizon.
A last rumor claims that Google may be preparing an $100 Nexus phone powered by a MediaTek processor. It seems insane such a little price for a Nexus phone but after seeing the Moto G ($180) success, it’s really possible that Google may come to have success if they make this rumor true.
Now if we start to speculate we arrive to a possible way that Google may accomplish. Lenovo has a good relationship with MediaTek, since Lenovo bought Motorola and Motorola it’s incredible in making incredible phones with a reasonable price tag, it’s possible that this next Nexus phone could be made by Motorola/Lenovo.
