As we get ever closer to the An­droid Nougat fi­nal re­veal, ru­mours heat up about the two new Nexus phones – for now co­de­named Sail­fish and Mar­lin – on which Google will show­case its shiny new OS. More of a sur­prise, though, is that these HTC-built smart­phones could come along­side Google’s first Nexus-branded smart­watch. We round up all the ru­mours from page 4, and de­tail what Nougat has in store on page 35.

The IFA 2016 show is also upon us, and among the high­lights this year we’re ex­pect­ing to see a Sam­sung Gear S3 and Tab S3, and a new Sony Xpe­ria flag­ship. It won’t be the long-awaited Sony Xpe­ria Z6, but it should at least be worth the wait. See page 16 on­ward for de­tails of what to ex­pect.

The big news this month, though, has been the launch of Sam­sung’s big­gest and best ever Galaxy, the Note7. Check out our hands-on from page 25. The new Galaxy is cur­rently avail­able to pre-or­der and should be on sale around the time you read this.

With its huge, high-res­o­lu­tion screen and 3500mAh bat­tery the Note7 is an ideal de­vice for watch­ing video and play­ing games. And there’s only one game on ev­ery­one’s minds right now: Poké­mon GO. Turn to page 82 if you want to know what the fuss is all about.
