Google is set to announce their next wave of Nexus devices at the end of this month, but before all of that, some users have spotted something interesting over on the Google Play Store.

Some crafty users have discovered some code in the Google Store’s source code which is to be displayed as a Toast-style warning pop-up, one that references something called ‘Nexus Project’ and though we’re not quite sure what it is, it could very well be some sort of extended care plan for Nexus devices.

The warning reads:

“You can’t add this phone unless it has the same Nexus Protect choice as other phones in your cart. You can update your choice or purchase this phone in your next order.”

It would make sense if this was some form of extended warranty protection plan, like Apple Care, or even HTC’s “Uh Oh” plan. That being said, it seems Google are set to limit which devices will come part of the Nexus Project and that users purchasing multiple devices will have to choose either all Nexus Project compliant devices, or none at all.

According to Android Police, who initially spotted the code, this message appears on almost all of the hardware in the Google Store from Chromebooks to Android TV and Android Wear devices – though again this is purely speculation and may only be in place to warn you that those devices aren’t compatible with the plan.

Google is set to unveil their next wave of Nexus devices on September 29.
