Monday Jun 27th 2016 by Developer.com Staff

The Google-branded phone could be available for purchase by the end of next year.

The Telegraph is reporting that Google is planning to release its own smartphone, putting it into direct competition with Samsung and Apple. Citing "sources familiar with the discussions," the report says that Google is currently in talks with mobile operators and that Google plans to release the device by the end of next year.

The move would give Google more control over the way that the Android operating system and apps run on the devices.

Google declined to comment on the story.
