Google has announced a few days ago that, starting this year, it will discontinue the Nexus smartphone family. However, the big search engine company has added that it will replace it with a new brand. Fans don’t have any problem with the new names, as long as the devices will have great specs.
It seems that the Google Nexus 2016 will be replaced by Pixel and Pixel XL, two devices that are manufactured by HTC. These two devices are also known as Sailfish and Marlin, which have been leaked for quite a while.
According to Android Police, an accurate source of Android leaks, the new Google smartphones will be released on October 4, 2016. We remind you that some previous rumors were suggesting that the next Google smartphones will be released on this date.
There are rumors which say that Google will most likely hold a special media event for that day and it will finally unveil the Pixel and Pixel XL handsets, which will be the new Google Android products. To make things even better, Google will most likely launch the Google Home, which is an in-house design for a Daydream VR viewer (might be known as Daydream View) device and new 4K Chromecast device.
Unfortunately, there are no leaks about the prices of these products, but don’t worry, because there is less than a month until the rumored event. One thing is for sure: the new Pixel and Pixel XL devices will be more expensive than the last year’s Nexus handsets and they are expected to run on a Google-customized version of Android 7.0 Nougat.
As soon as we find more information about these two upcoming smartphone, we will let you know!
