The Android 7.0 Nougat is the latest OS from Google. So far, it has been released as a preview several times but the final build is scheduled for release in late August or early September.

The latest leak regarding the matter is a photo of a supposed Nexus Marlin built by HTC. Unfortunately, the design of the smartphone is not clear due to a cover but it’s very clear that it’s running Android Nougat. Not only that, but it also appears to have the latest Android security patch level.
According to Techdroider, the device has 128 GB of internal memory, similar to the Nexus 6P which was released last year and it also sports a fingerprint scanner on the flush back which is similar to HTC’s smartphone designs.
The Google Nexus 2016 devices will supposedly come with a 5.5 inch display with QHD AMOLED resolution, Corning Gorilla Glass technology, a Qualcomm 821 Snapdragon processor plus 4 GB of RAM, but they will differ in terms of battery capacity. They will also feature similar cameras: a 12 MP rear one and an 8 MP front one.
