Google may be looking to produce mid-range Nexus device

If you want a true Android experience, Nexus devices are the only way to go. Each year a new Nexus device rolls out, but this year we may see two if a new report out of China turns out to be true.

According to the new report from a MediaTek-centric site, Google is teaming up with MediaTek to put out a mid-range Nexus device. It won’t replace the flagship Nexus, but will be geared towards folks on a budget that still want a true Android experience without breaking the bank.

The move would make sense for Google as we’ve seen a lot of manufacturers whip out budget models of their flagship devices over the past year. Switching chips would certainly allow Google to sell the mid-range Nexus a bit cheaper, but one would have to assume other areas would take a hit including the display and memory.

For the moment, we would advise you to take this rumor with a grain of salt. It’s certainly possible that Google could produce a budget friendly Nexus this year, but the price in the report seems a little too good to be true as it says the smartphones could go for as low as $100. If that was to happen, you would see a boatload of sales regardless of what lies under the hood. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
