While consumers continue to wait for the availability of Google Nexus 2016, a new report has hinted that its anticipating fans might just get broken-hearted.

Why? Because there is an on-going rumor claiming that instead of releasing the upgraded Nexus device, the company is reportedly keen about offering a new line.

Based on the latest update, this new product will be known as "Pixel," which is said to be available by Oct. 4 in two variants - the "Pixel" and "Pixel XL."

Is Google just postponing the release date of Google Nexus 2016? Or, is it really dropping it already from its plans?

As how Trusted Review has put it, it is already "Goodbye Nexus, Hello Pixel," as the company is reportedly introducing a "new name" while "binning" the former. 

It was noted that "Pixel" and "Pixel XL" was previously known according to their codenames "Sailfish" and "Marlin," respectively.

It was further dished that "The Pixel will be a sequel to the Nexus 5X, and the Pixel XL will follow the more high-end Nexus 6P."

From the looks of it, it appears that Google is already replacing the anticipated Nexus 2016 with the "Pixel" and "Pixel XL." Do you think this could be a possibility?

Amid this report, consumers might get even more excited as it was surmised that these new units will reportedly be "the most powerful phone ever," considering their expected specs.

Among these are Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 chip, 4GB of RAM and a 2,770mAh battery.

Per David Ruddock of Android Police, the Google "Pixel" and "Pixel XL" would be the first to use it.  

"By the way, as far as I can tell, the Pixels will by the first US devices with Snapdragon 821 by a long shot. No one else is using it," he posted on Twitter
