Google also claimed that both the device would come with a neater, slicker and cleaner design than the current flagship Huawei Nexus 6P as the present camera hump will be removed from those upcoming devices.

The Google Nexus Sailfish and Marlin devices are expected to be unveiled in September-October time frame, most likely on 4th October. Although the CEO of this multinational technological giant, Sundar Pichai has given the hint the past that Google will continue working with OEMs and could feature more software customizations with Android on the upcoming Nexus devices. So the speculations are Google Nexus Marlin and Sailfish won’t be launched with just pure Android.
