First pics of the 2016 Nexus phone in the wild

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] Googlicious. What's up? Brian Tong here with the Googlicious for everything inside the world of Google. And we start with the first images of the 2016 Nexus Sailfish phone in the wild from Android Police with its all metal and glass body. Now the picture is having crop most likely, to protect the location where they were taken but They match up really well with these renders Android Police created earlier in July based on their sources. The the interwebs jumped all over this picture of what's believed to be the new Nexus phone in someone's hand in the wild. Now, we're expecting two HTC Build Nexus phones, a 5.5 inch And a five inch phone that had been codenamed marlin and sailfish. Then the two phones were also just certified by the FCC with the model numbers G-2PW4100 and G-2PW2100. Their weights indicate that the 4100 should be the larger marlin phone. Last years Nexus line was announced at the end of September and the phones launched in October, so expect a similar timing This time around as well. All right, Google is working on a new project revealed on GitHub that's an all new operating system named Fuchsia. And it's not based on Linux at all. The OS wouldn't be an upgrade to anything but would stand on it's own Alongside the Linux based Android and Chrome OS. Now Fuchsia is based on the Magenta Kernel that's designed to work on everything from a desktop computer, to laptops and wearables, and all the way down to basic Internet of Things devices like A smart light bulb. Google also wants to use material designed for the look, and it hasn't been announced but Android police sources say it will be open source from the beginning, which is why we can see it publicly from the start, with an official announcement by Google coming later. Now we're also still fired up about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, and for those of you in the comments that think It's just a slightly upgraded S7 Edge. It's meant to be an upgrade to the Note5. Now according to DisplayMate, it also has the most innovative and high performance smartphone display that we have ever tested, and has become the best Performance smartphone display ever. Those are their words, not mine and you have to take a look because that ACR display looks ridiculous in person. Also, Galaxy Note 7 users might be getting the Android nugget update in the next two or three months. That, if you believe what Samsung's DJ Ko told the Korean Times, but as warning, international unlocked devices have a history of getting updates a lot faster. For example The Galaxy S6 in Korea got the Android Marshmallow update four months after Marshmallow was realized. But then, some US carriers took five months after that to get the update, so let's not get too ahead of ourselves and let's expect something similar. And the new updated Gear VR headset is now available for pre-order on Amazon for $99 with its improved touchpad controls. Wider viewing angle and more comfortable feel, and works with both the Note 7 and previous compatible gear via R devices. And what's next for Samsung? Well, the Korean giant has sent out its invites for its press conference at IFA 2016 where we expect to see the new Gear S3 smart watch. Now, I don't know about you, but the hour hand and minutes hand of a watch face on that invite kinda gave it away. The event is set for Thursday, September the first. There haven't been really any clean leaks for the new hardware other than this overexposed look at what could be a metallic Gear S3, but we have to expect they'll maintain the rotating bezel interface that's really cool, and possibly bring Samsung Pay to the new version. All right, that's gonna do it for this week's show. You can always email me at googlicious@cnet.com or tweet me @briantong. Thanks so much for watching. We'll catch you all next time for another Googlicious. [MUSIC] Googlicious. [BLANK_AUDIO]
