Google Nexus phones will target iPhone?s market. Google?s CEO Sundar Pichai has hinted that Google will take more control over design, software and manufacturing. ?There are many things, like multi-window, that we?ve been spending a lot of time on ? hopefully we can share more about this soon. We?re working on lots of things right now for N that, of course, we wish we had, you know, yesterday? But we?d spoil the surprise of N if we shared all of them. Split screen is in the works!? Android and Chrome UX director Glen Murphy said.

Google Nexus 2016 smartphones will run Android N out-of-the-box. According to Australian Network News, Google has released three developer previews of Android N. The final version will be released in August. Hiroshi Lockheimer, the person in charge of the Android team, has posted an image on Twitter. The image shows him searching for ?Nutella? on Google. There is a big possibility of Google launching Nexus 2016 and Android N at the same event.
