The HTC Nexus 9 disappeared from play store, Google annual I/O event is just one month away. This year Google Android N version announcement is expected in the third quarter of the year. What does all this means, yes you guess it right, it is time for a couple of new Nexus smartphones. Following their pattern, Google will be announcing two Nexus smartphones.
Of course, with each passing day as the launch date of new Nexus 2016 smartphones is getting closer, we have new details regarding the manufacturers of the devices. So far only HTC is rumoured to be producing two Nexus smartphones of the year but what we have got today will provide us with a new angle regarding the manufacturers of the devices.
Today a device named “Nexus 6P” is spotted on Geekbench running on the latest Qualcomm’s top of the line Snapdragon 820 Soc with 4GB of RAM on board. That’s not the last year Nexus 6p because it was packed with Qualcomm’s controversial Snapdragon 810 Soc with 3GB of RAM.
However, the specs sheet aforementioned device is packed will bring the Nexus 6p on the same stage like the current flagships of 2016 in terms of Soc and RAM. Let’s have a look at Geekbench listing of new Nexus 6P.
Well, manufacturing two Nexus smartphones in a row is not a new deal for Nexus builder. Google and LG-manufactured Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 back to back in a row. So far LG is the only manufacturer who has produced 3 Nexus smartphones so far. Like Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 LG not only updated the specs sheet of the device but also made few changes to its design as well. In 2012 and 2013 Asus manufactured two Nexus 7’s with the same name and almost similar design which was confusing for many Nexus fans.
Last but not the least interesting fact is Motherboard of new Nexus 6P 2016 is codenamed as Marlin as we know that marlin is an alleged name of Nexus 6p successor variant. Google is known for naming their device against aquatic life, so it would be interesting to see Marlin Aka Nexus 6p successor from HTC. At the end, the device is running on the latest Android N. We do have to wait few more days for more info because at the moment situation is very confusing for all Nexus lovers. Do share your views below regarding the alleged Nexus 6p successor manufactured by Huawei.
