Since it is believed that LG might be manufacturing the Google Android Silver, so there are slightly less chances of Android Silver being an operating system but still the possibility cannot be rolled out. We also know that LG was working on a Smart watch which would be powered by Android ,so there is even a possibility that LG might name that Smart watch as “Android Silver: A smart watch with a metallic strap” in that case the name would be apt.Some rumors are as follows:

A Nexus 8 prototype has been seen to be shipped in India . So as of now all the speculations about the scarpping of Nexus Series can be practically “Scrapped”. It is possible that Nexus smartphones and tablets might be manufactured by HTC.
Update 07/09/2014: Will Nexus 6 or Nexus 8 be Android Silver?
Well many people are posting that Google’s upcoming smartphone that is the Nexus 6 would be an Android Silver device. Some people are also suggesting that Nexus 8 tablet might also be an Android Silver Device.
Well in that case I would like to say that since LG is rumored to be the manufacturer of the Android Silver Device how are people even thinking that Nexus 6 and Nexus 8 to be an Android Silver device when LG has confirmed that , it’s not involved in manufacturing of any Nexus Devices.
Well in contrary ,nothing is certain. There are chances that Android Silver never turns up, but we guess Nexus and Android Silver to be different . Please wait till any official update is released.
