The arrival of the Google Pixel marks the first true “Made by Google” (though not literally, of course) smartphone, one that truly aims for the top spot in the smartphone market. It may also mark the end of the Nexus
program as we know it. Although Google hasn’t said so, it has removed all traces of Nexus devices, save for some cases for the Nexus 5X and 6P, from the Google Store. And commenting to The Verge, Google said it has no plans for further Nexus products.
