Top 10: Android News Stories July 10th, 2016

Lots has happened in the world of Android over the past week, including a decent number of rumors and leaks revolving around Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 7 phablet, the company's second flagship device series which makes its debut in the second half of the year. This past week, the Galaxy Note 7 showed up on two different benchmarking systems, once on the Geekbench website, and once on AnTuTu, each revealing some telling details about the device, suggesting that it will be running on Android 7.0 Nougat, as well as coming with 4GB of RAM instead of the previously rumored 6GB, and that it would be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU.

Samsung also made the Olympic Games Edition of the Galaxy S7 Edge official this past week, and it was rumored that the announcement of the Galaxy Note 7 could come along with the announcement of a new Gear VR device. Google was rumored to be developing two Android Wear smartwatches, and there was a glimpse at some render mockups of what the rumored HTC Nexus might look like in various colors. Nextbit seemingly teased their upcoming Red model of the Robin, and a little further back than last week, from July 2nd, specs were revealed for the second rumored HTC Nexus device, codenamed Marlin.
