Google has never made their own smart phone even though they have made the operation system, Android, many years ago. Instead Google has made partnerships with different smart phone developers throughout the years.
Rumors tells that Google is thinking about making their own smart phone because they want to make better ways to make Android a better competitor to the iPhone.
Motorola was owned by Google few years ago and Google could have made their own smart phone back then, but according to FoxNews the company always said it didn’t want to give Motorola preferential treatment.
It’s not clear whether the phone would be included in the Nexus family or a brand new standalone Google project.
