Google's next generations set of Nexus may be the most anticipated android phone next to Samsung's Galaxy Note7. Google has set two new Nexus phones this year and it may have accidentally revealed one of them ahead of its scheduled release.

First Look At 'Sailfish'

Google will release two new Nexus smartphones in the coming months and one of them may have just been leaked ahead of its release, BGR reported. So far, updates about the phones are based on leaks and rumors. As such, it has been said that both phones are built by HTC, which should go hand in hand with the new Android 7.0 Nougat software.

It seems Google wants to give out a little more about the highly anticipated phones. Codenamed as "Marlin" and "Starfish," the "Marlin" is expected to be a phablet that should succeed Nexus 6P while "Starfish" is expected to a smaller smartphone with similar specs. Interestingly, pictures of Sailfish have leaked the internet over the weekend.

While there were leaked photos of the Nexus "Sailfish" previously, the new images show the device's back, front and sides. Another picture leaked online, showing the phone at a different angle. This particular picture suggests that the phone may be covered by a glass panel, GSM Arena reported. Check out the images below.

Other Details of Nexus 'Sailfish'

To recall, there were speculations that Nexus "Sailfish" will feature a 5-inch 1080p display and a 2, 770mAh battery. Checking the latest pictures, it seems to go in line with the initial speculations. The Nexus "Marlin" on the other hand will feature a 5.5-inch QHD display and a 3,450mAh battery.

The Nexus "Sailfish" is expected to be released in October. Check out the latest post from Google on their Instagram account. This could also be the new look of Google's Nexus smartphones.
