Google could replace Nexus with a new brand lineup this year

By : |August 31, 2016 0

If you are among those who are eagerly waiting for Google’s new Nexus smartphones this year code named Sailfish and Marlin, we have a piece of not so good news for you. The company, according to several reports, will refrain from launching any Nexus devices this year. Instead, it may introduce its flagship phones under a new name.

According to Android Central, Google is said to be planning on dropping the Nexus branding from the upcoming phones which won’t be running on stock Android OS, which has been sort of the Nexus lineup’s USP.

Apparently, it’s going to be ‘Google’ brand “front and center.” Though the report has sourced the information from unnamed sources, it does fall in line with recent Marlin and Sailfish leaked renders boasting a ‘G’ logo at the back.

It is also being said that additional software and a tweaked interface with the vanilla Android will be added to the new line.

Meanwhile, various other sources, such as serial leaker Evan Blass, are also talking about the next flagship from Google to be a new device.

Radical changes are expected in the button layout, color scheme and a Settings app hugely different from the Nougat-touting 6P and 5X
