HTC is rumored to have been tapped to be the next Nexus builder. The devices have been code named Marlin and Sailfish. No official announcement has been made but if the rumors are true it will be a bit boost for HTC. The also rumored release date for these devices is sometime this summer, which would make sense as that would go along with the Android N release. ArsTechnica has the full story.
The Nexus line has a long history of fish-inspired device code names, and these code names have an equally long history of leaking via rumors and AOSP commit comments. Today both Android Police and Evleaks are chiming in with details on the next Nexus phones.
