The Nexus Ain't Dying: A Twist In The "Pixel" Tale

Yeah, you read that right. We know that Android Police had a different say on this. But, our Google source has told us that Google currently has no plans to do away with the  Nexus branding.

A couple of weeks back we had guided you through the course Google intends to take to "unfold the Nougat roll". Some of the stuff we mentioned in that post was confirmed later on by serial leakers Evan Blass and LlabTooFeR on Twitter.

So what, they are also "leakers", how can you use their Tweets as a " confirmation"?

Yeah, we know that. The only thing what we can say here is that they can be treated as "reliable leakers". We are new in this business. So, confirmations from the experienced players in this field, or should I say our "elders" in this field, keeps us at peace with the fact that the people whom we are referring to can be considered as "reliable" sources too! We do get that these leaks might turn out to be false and Google might take a different route on various things, but who doesn't want to get an insight into the future!

So here we are. Taking into courtesy the reliability of our source in regard to his (or her!) knowledge on past events, we would like to inform to you that there is a twist in the Pixel tale too.

According to our source, Google will not be dropping the Nexus brand for Sailfish and Marlin, all set to be unveiled on October 4. In fact, we have been informed that "Pixel" and "Pixel XL" will be treated as model names and not as brand names. Quoting our source, "If Google ever intends to use the Pixel brand, it will be only for tablets".

Huh, that seems a bit contradictory. Why would the model names be called Pixel in that case?

Regarding this, our source tells us that the model names are an independent take of the OEM who is making the phones. The original equipment manufacturer (OEM) in this case is HTC.

Just to conclude, according to the news our source has supplied us with, Sailfish will be called as Nexus Pixel and Marlin will be called as Nexus Pixel XL.
