Rumor has it that HTC is manufacturing a pair of Nexus-branded devices this year. A week ago we heard our first rumors regarding the specs for the smaller of the two, codenamed “Sailfish,” and now there’s word on what features larger “Marlin” device might boast.
According to an anonymous source providing information to Android Police, the Marlin will be a powerhouse. The report states that the Marlin will boast a Qualcomm quad-core processor under the hood and a 5.5-inch Quad HD AMOLED display. On the back there’s a 12-megapixel camera, while the front-facing camera is an 8-megapixel shooter.
Other specs include a USB Type-C port, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, 4GB of RAM, a 3450mAh battery, and bottom-firing speakers. The Marlin will also apparently come in 32GB or 128GB variants and feature Bluetooth 4.2.
The report also indicates that the Sailfish, the HTC-branded Nexus phone with a 5-inch screen, will feature a 1080p AMOLED display.
The new Nexus smartphones should be running the newest version of Android, which has just been confirmed to be called Android Nougat.
Based on what you’ve heard about HTC’s Marlin, are you looking forward to the next Nexus smartphone?
