He however refused to comment on existence of such programme.
“Android silver is not something on which we are commenting right now but the vision of it does not mean that Nexus would be axed”, he had informed.

These devices are made with Google’s partner and OEMs comes with Android OS without any software or applications. Android updates are quicker on Nexus than on any other device.
