According to reports, Google will release its Android 7.0 Nougat before the end of this month. In other words, this might mean that the big search engine company will bring its Nexus 2016 handset earlier than the previous Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.
Today we will talk about the new device and the new operating system and what to expect from both of them
Google Nexus 2016 Launcher
Google Nexus 2016 will come with a new Nexus Launcher that will go along with the new handsets. The new launcher will not have the app drawer button, which means that you will have more room for a fifth icon to be added in its place. In order to access the menu on the new Google Nexus 2016, you will just need to swipe up towards the bottom of the screen.
You will also notice that the Google Search bar has been removed and instead of it, you will just see a “G” icon located in the top-left side of the display. You will just have to tap on the “G” button and you will bring up the search future. Keep in mind that the “G” button will not be visible on other screens.
Carrier-branded Google Nexus 2016
According to reports, Verizon will be carrying the Google Nexus 2016 handsets. However, we are not sure if Google made a good move by bringing a carrier-branded Google Nexus 2016. Usually, Google Nexus devices come with stock Android OS, which means that you will have access to new updates faster than usual.
Verizon needs to make its own tweaks to the Android 7.0 Nougat OS, which means that some delays might happen when a new update is released. This will surely make a good amount users very disappointed.
Android 7.0 Nougat
According to reports, Google Apps are now targeting developer API Level 25, up from the current API Level 24 that is currently used for Android 7.0 Nougat. In other words, the current Android 7.0 Nougat is not the latest version and Google is still working on a newer version of it before it releases it to the public.
HINT: The Android Marshmallow is using API Level 23.
