But still, Nexus was always seen as a "reference design" to show off the best of Android in the latest release, but Mr Burke said we won't be seeing reference designs any more.

"We're excited about seeing more users come online for the first time as the price of entry level smart phones drop, and we want to help manufacturers continue to offer lower-cost devices that provide a great experience for these users".
