According to the recent 9to5Google report, the official version is rumoured to release between August and September or at around the same time of the Nexus 2016 release date.

This is great news for all those who rock the three 2015 and 2016 smartphones from HTC, however, they are not the only ones which will be receiving an early Android Nougat treat.

There have been more and more leaks about the Nexus Marlin and Sailfish as of late which could mean that an actual launch may be just on the horizon.

More important among the rumors is the one saying that the Google Nexus 7 2016 shall come out of the box already loaded with Android 7.0 Nougat, the latest mobile operating system of Google. The power and volume rocker buttons have been placed on the right while the twin BoomSound speakers have been placed along the bottom.

The Nexus devices have always been rooters top choice mainly because it runs on the stock Android and also because they are always the first ones to get any Google Android update. HTC BoomSound speakers are also implemented in the device with a USB Type-C port at the bottom. The report also stated that the new device will come with 128GB of storage, which will be the first time that a Nexus device is offered with so much storage. Bitbag reported that Sailfish appears half-an-inch smaller than Marlin, and boasts Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SOC, while Sailfish comes with a 64-bit 2.0 GHZ Quad core processor.

Camera of Google Nexus 2016: Marlin is claimed to have a 12MP rear camera with image sensor and LED Flash. However, before that happens we'll continue to see Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P deals. As per the leak renders, the device is supposed to have a fingerprint scanner at the back, below the camera module. The smartphone could also come with 4GB of RAM and have a 3,450mAh battery.

Marlin and Sailfish would be competing with Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro/Plus in the market.

Being based on persistent speculations, the Nexus 2016 will be assembled by HTC, a Taiwanese device maker.
