It’s been suggested that Google will bring an end to its Nexus line of smartphones and tablets some time in 2015.

The rumor comes from Eldar Murtazin, a Russian leakster. He posted on Twitter (around the same time he pushed the Nexus Lenovo rumour), that the line will end in 2015. But fear not – taking its place with the be Play Edition line that currently offers other company’s products via the Google Play Store.

Murtazin wrote: Nexus line by Google is over in 2015 😉 Yes – this line will be replaced by Play Edition (current name, it will be rebranded).

That would mean no more Nexus 5, 7 or 10. It seems like a radical move for a brand that performs quite well.
