Google’s next-gen Nexus will come with new Nougat features that aren’t available yet

August 24th, 2016 at 10:58 AM
Google Nexus 2016 Marlin Sailfish Nougat 7.1

Google just released the Android 7.0 Nougat update but this year’s Nexus devices are yet to become official. Even if you don’t plan on buying an HTC Nexus model this year, you should still be excited about the phones because the two devices will run Android 7.1, a Nougat upgrade that will bring with it two exciting new features.

MUST SEE: iPhone 7: New leak may have just solved the only mystery left

A post on Reddit revealed that Google is already testing Android 7.1, with Android Police’s David Ruddock tweeting that the new Nexus phones will launch with Android 7.1, “which is now confirmed to be Nougat’s MR1 release.”

If that’s not enough, one more person who offered details recently about the upcoming Nexus phones confirmed the news.

“The Marlin leak is based on N Maintenance Release 1. NMR1,” Nathan Benis said. “With Google’s announcements, today of doing quarterly maintenance releases leads me to believe the upcoming Nexus devices are going to be launched alongside MR1. Probably around the same time they were last year. Current version of Android N that is being pushed to Nexus devices is based on Developer Preview 5 and does not have any of the ‘proprietary features Android Police and myself have been leaking’ expect a developer preview of mr1 with these changes soon… “

Previous leaks indicated that the Marlin and Sailfish would feature a new launcher as well as a way to activate the brand new Google Assistant from a redesigned home button.

Google has yet to confirm any of these details, but Benis seems to indicate the new Nexus phones are due in late September. That means an announcement is probably is probably on the way.
