General News Google's Rumoured Pixel-branded Phones to Launch on October 4
#1
Advertisement
It has been long speculated that Google will remove the Nexus branding from its next smartphones. Now, sources have claimed that the new phones will come with Pixel branding.

The anticipated smartphones, codenamed Marlin and Sailfish , will be branded as Pixel and Pixel XL respectively. Google Pixel will feature a 5-inch display while the Pixel XL will be larger at 5.5 inches.

The choice of Pixel branding appears in accordance with reports about Google's decision to make the new phones more Google-centric with no branding of the manufacturer either.

The smartphones will be manufactured by HTC and in addition to the lack of Nexus branding, they are also expected to bring in additional software and interface changes atop stock Android.

In all likelihood, the new Google phones could come with a special version of Android Nougat as opposed to the standard 'Vanilla' version shipped on the past Nexus phones.

A report on Android Police further notes that other than the purported Pixel phones, Google will use the occasion, which is set to be held on October 4, to also announce a 4K Chromecast and reveal its in-house design for a Daydream VR viewer device along with some updates on Google Home.
