The Nexus 5 handset is almost a year old now and with the next-gen Nexus reportedly on the way, we guess it doesn’t come as much of a surprise to learn that Sprint could be ending their support for the Nexus 5 device. This is according to the folks at Android Police who have heard from their source inside Sprint who told them that the carrier had listed the phone on its “end of life” list.
For those unfamiliar with that list, basically what it means is that the carrier will no longer be promoting the Nexus 5 handset in its stores, and that any standard software updates will no longer be issued. However for those who are still looking to get their hands on the phone, it is possible that you will still be able to buy whatever stock that the carrier has left.
However like we said, the next-gen Nexus, also known as the Nexus X, is said to be on its way and could possibly debut sometime in October alongside the Nexus 9 tablet, or so we assume since we can only imagine that Google will want to debut both devices at once. In any case this isn’t that surprising but in the meantime if you still think that the Nexus 5 is a good phone that you wouldn’t mind using, perhaps you’ll want to hurry before they run out of stock.
