HTC Nexus Marlin & Sailfish get certified at FCC before official unveil

By now the general consensus seems to be that HTC will be making this year’s Nexus handsets. It also appears that Google will be keeping to last year’s pattern by offering up two handsets, although in this case it seems that HTC will be making both of them, as opposed to last year where we had two different companies.

If you’re still skeptical or if maybe you wanted more evidence of HTC’s Nexus plans, you might be interested to learn that the FCC filing for HTC’s Nexus handsets has been discovered. Now the FCC filing doesn’t actually give away the specs or the design of the phone, but there is evidence to suggest that these are the Nexus phones.

Nexus phones have one major advantage, access to fast Android updates, which make them prized possessions to Android users looking to be on the latest available Android releases. And this year, Google’s Nexus phones will be true flagship devices according to several independent reports, complete with great new design.

Grab the Nexus 2016 Wallpapers here

Google hasn’t even come close to showing off the new Nexus phone(s) for 2016, but that hasn’t stopped a slow trollout of leaks involving them. We’ve heard the specs, seen mock-up renders, and now have supposed wallpapers from the device that you can download.

You want them because duh. These are a handful of the new static wallpapers that Google will unveil with the new Nexus phones later this year. We don’t know if this is all the wallpapers, but it’s a good portion of them.
