At least two size options should be coming differing only in internal specifications and dimensions. Unlike the Nexus 5X or 6P, the housing may be made mostly of aluminum.

Specifications for the next Nexus "Sailfish" and "Marlin" smartphones were leaked just a few days ago, but Android Police now claims to have the final design shot of the upcoming series. Accordingly, both devices will have the same design and differ only in specifications and dimensions, so the leaked shot should be representative of both models.

The Nexus 2016 will have some interesting features if the leaked image proves to be true. The chassis may be largely aluminum while the upper third will consist of a more reflective material that can be either glass or plastic. A rear fingerprint sensor can be spotted and the rear camera will no longer protrude like on the current Nexus 6P. The "Nexus" logo appears to be missing as well and may be replaced by a simple "G" for Google.

Color options should include Gray, Silver, and Blue with a white front. Both Huawei and HTC have been rumored to be working on multiple versions to succeed both the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.
