It's official: Google's Nexus device lineup is no more, usurped by premium Pixel hardware.
Expect to pay more than you usually would for a Nexus, with the cheaper option of the pair to cost $649.
It's another sign that Google is abandoning the longtime Nexus name in favor of 'Pixel' for its upcoming smartphones.
Nexus 6P maker Huawei is reportedly in the final stages of crafting a seven-inch slab to hit store shelves by the end of the year.
The report echoes earlier rumors that Google is dropping the Nexus branding and will further push its services into virtual reality, the smart home, and television.
Currently a Project Fi exclusive, this feature tells your phone to look out for and connect to a series of 'high-quality' open networks vetted by Google.

Google also pushed the latest security updates to the Android Open Source Project, which means hardware makers can get to work on sending them out.
A quick double-tap on the home screen could also reveal all those notifications waiting for you.
This major redesign to Android's launcher kills off the app drawer button and pushes you to interact more regularly with Google Now.
It may be time to let go of your Nexus 5, which is rumored to miss out on the latest version of Android.
The wristwear appears to share a design philosophy with Google's Nexus phones, going for a sleek and slightly futuristic look.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
