As the september is approaching, news and rumours about the upcoming Nexus device for the year 2016 are pouring in. One thing among many was confirmed few days back that HTC is developing the Nexus devices. We also heard from Huawei representative that they are working on a Google Nexus device. Initial reports said there are two Google Nexus phones in development under HTC with the code names of Marlin and Sailfish. Things start to get confusing here as Huawei general manager for consumer business group said in his last interview. “We’re doing the Nexus again this year, by the way”. Are we looking at 3 Google nexus this year? Time will tell.
Talking about HTC. When it comes to hardware and design, HTC is no less than anyone out there. But their software and Sense UI is where HTC is not good at. With the stock Android on HTC developed Nexus phones. I think, they are going to be something amazing. HTC recently released HTC 10, it has almost stock Android UI.
