New premium Android devices with Google-controlled software and fast updates could arrive next year

Google could be preparing sweeping changes for the Android ecosystem next year, according to a report from The Information. The site has published details of what it calls the Android “Silver” program, a new lineup of premium Android smartphones it says will replace the current Nexus line. Silver, the report claims, is intended to combat Apple’s iPhone and allow Google to assert more control over the high-end Android market, currently dominated by Samsung.
