Google’s upcoming smartphones may not sport the Nexus branding, and may instead introduce a new brand. According to a report by Android Central, the two smartphones, which are apparently codenamed Sailfish and Marlin, may offer additional software and a "tweaked" interface over stock Android. The new phones are expected sport the "Google" logo on them, but the name that will be used instead of Nexus is not yet known. The same report also corroborates a story by Android Police, which stated that Google was working on two Android Wear devices. The two wearables are reportedly codenamed Angelfish and Swordfish.

Coming back to the smartphones, both devices are tipped to be manufactured by HTC. Sailfish is expected to be the successor of LG Nexus 5X, and benchmark listings suggest that it will feature a 5.1-inch Full HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC and 4GB of RAM. It is tipped to sport 13MP and 5MP cameras, and 32GB of native storage. Marlin, meanwhile, is tipped to offer similar specifications as Sailfish, but with a larger, 5.5-inch QHD display.
