The year has already provided the general public with plenty of smartphone units to choose from. Some of the most exciting of which have been the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, the LG V20 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Yet despite the impeccable list of existing 2016 phones, there is still plenty of hype left over for the 2016 Google Nexus phones.

First Things First

Google's 2016 Nexus phones have already gotten their names - the Marlin and the Starfish. But more recent reports are stating that Google is dropping the Nexus branding completely, which includes the Marlin and Starfish name as well. Instead, the public will receive the Pixel (Sailfish) and the Pixel XL (Marlin).

Pixel And Pixel XL - Expected Specs

According to BGR, the 2016 Google Phones will be the first US handhelds to come powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, which theoretically means that it could be the most powerful handheld of 2016. Thus far, no other handheld has sported the chip.

The 2016 Google phones are also expected to come with other high-end specs as the search engine giant is expected to leave the cheaper smartphone market alone.

In addition, both the Pixel and Pixel XL devices are expected to come with internal storage options, either at 32 GB or 128 GB.

The Unveiling Event

As Android Police notes, the unveiling event might be this October 4th. Furthermore, it will be more exciting than previous events, precisely because Google is focusing on itself. Unlike before, the company is expected to leave out talks of partners or the Nexus program in general.

Nexus vs Google

The question though, is just how Pixel will stack up against Nexus. The branding itself is doing well, and the publication argues that Google is not leaving behind the branding because there was anything wrong in particular. Rather, Google is gearing up to tackle Apple directly, without the need to mention any partners pulling them behind.
