Google Nexus smartphones to be called Pixel and Pixel XL
Just a few days it became clear that Google thinks to “kill” the program Nexus smartphones this year in the series not to bear that name. We remind that they will be manufactured by Taiwan-based HTC and bearing code names Marlin and Sailfish.
From Android Police, citing two independent sources confirmed that Google plans to use Pixel’s brand for its new smartphones. Sailfish will be called “Pixel”, while 5-inch Marlin will be called “Pixel XL”.
The reason for the change of names and Google strategy is not clear yet.
