While Evan Blass holds the record for being accurate with most leaks, there is nothing official from HTC or Google yet. Another report at Android Police has also confirmed HTC’s plans.
According to Android Police, the HTC Nexus devices are codenamed Marlin and Sailfish. Google has a history of naming its Android devices after aquatic life. Google Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P were codenamed Bullhead and Angler respectively.
The Android Police report also claims that the details have been confirmed by a Qualcomm engineer. While Google has maintained a tight security around its next Nexus devices, we could get more details about them during company’s developer conference, Google I/O 2016 which starts from May 18 in California.
