According to Evleaks, the king of leaks and rumors, and Android Police, HTC is currently working on two Nexus devices that would theoretically be released this year, the M1 and S1, or Marlin and Sailfish. In the past, Nexus devices have had codenames represented by marine life. Android Police has been hearing Marlin and Sailfish are the next two Nexus devices to be released, matching up nicely with the M1 and S1 codename Evleaks tweeted about this afternoon.
While Evleaks hasn’t provided anything further yet, Android Police‘s information comes from a trusted source in combination with the mention of a Marlin device from a senior Qualcomm engineer. As much as we’d like to see more, these three things make for a pretty convincing rumor. There’s been no mention of when we can expect the new Nexus devices, but we would be surprised to see them much later than this fall.
Outside of the Nexus 9, HTC hasn’t made a Nexus product since the original Nexus One. With HTC’s latest devices receiving good reviews, we’re excited to see what the future holds.
