    It's more in line with Google's hardware naming convention, Pixel book, Pixel C (Tablet) etc.

    But those generally refer to Google designed and built hardware.

    The current crop of Nexus phones/Pixel phones are not the case and are not designed and built by Google, it's a recycled design with some tweaks made by HTC and HTC even filed the FCC approval.

    Happy to be proven wrong though - it just seems like a small cop out to slap the name Pixel on it and then say its Good built*.

    Either way, don't care, still want!

    * - They haven't said this yet.

    Yeah I got thats why they are naming them that.

    Maybe they are in preparation for google making the phone themselves next year, probably not, but wishful thinking.

    It'd make sense if HTC was part of Google. Fuel for the acquisition rumours

    You do realise nexus phone releases are very consistent right? You get nothing for that prediction which you saw off a website.

    I'm calling it, a nexus/pixel device will come out in October/November 2017.

    not sure why the confusion on the naming
    looks like nexus is now a software platform and pixel is a hardware platform
    just google expanding on a current base
    nothing to see, move along people

    Yep I linked it in the post? What's your point? Is my opinion not allowed to align with someone elses now?

    Rumors about the two phones have circulated for a while; the smaller 5-inch one is said to be codenamed Sailfish, while the larger 5.5-inch model goes by Marlin internally. In June, Android Police suggested that Sailfish and Marlin would both feature quad-core Qualcomm processors, 4GB of RAM, and 12-megapixel cameras, with the only difference between the two being a larger screen and battery on Marlin.

    The annual Android beta testing signup (where testers pay for the test platforms within hours of becoming available in order to secure their chances to witness early new and persistent bugs as well as minor hardware revisions to their test devices) is coming up?

    Yay!

    Hope it's much better than Pixel C. I tried to give away 25% developer discount codes here, but no one wanted damn thing.

    Aren't they sort of breaking away from that by Nougat debuting on the LG phone and these phones will come with 7.1?

    thats because LG know the phone will be broken in a bootloop before the bugs in Nougat are ever exposed
