Is Google ready to opt out the Google Nexus 2016 name in the company’s upcoming phones? A buzz revealed that Pixel and Pixel XL will be the official names of the Sailfish and Marlin models.

Details about the highly anticipated mobile devices have been circulating on the Internet. The website also has a report that Google will replace the Nexus tag with their own brand.

The company has been planning to expand their business by renaming the upcoming Google Nexus 2016 phones. The most plausible names are the ones mentioned above.

According to Android Community, the Marlin would be the Pixel XL. Meanwhile, the Sailfish might bear the Pixel name.

Photos of the purported models are also on the tech website. Looking at them, we can see the front panels of the two variants. The models look similar but have different display sizes – the Pixel has a 5-inch size while the other sports 5.5 inches. Meanwhile, the features and the specifications remain. The upcoming Google Nexus 2016 phones might carry a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor with 32GB onboard storage.

Furthermore, they could also have a microSD card slot, full HD display, 4GB or 6GB RAM, 12MP rear camera, 8MP front-facing cam and a 2770mAh or 3450mAh battery. There’s also the USB-port plus 3.5mm jack and dual stereo speakers.

The outlet is also guessing that Google will release the models next month given that the rumors have become more and more abundant on the web.

On the other hand, Android Central reported that Google will also opt out Vanilla Android. The website claimed that the company wishes to develop its operating system for the better.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai seconded the idea as well.”You’ll see us hopefully add more features on top of Android on Nexus phones. There’s a lot of software innovation to be had. Our plan is still to work with OEMs to make phones,” The Verge quoted.
