The next-generation Google Nexus devices are being manufactured by HTC and they should release later this year. With the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 officially unveiled, many other companies, especially Apple, are starting to leak info on their upcoming smartphones. This year’s Nexus lineup includes two smartphones called “Marlin” and “Sailfish”. Both Nexus Marlin and Nexus Sailfish are being developed by HTC. Recently, the HTC Nexus Sailfish’s GFXBench got leaked on the internet.
HTC Nexus Sailfish Specifications Leaked Through GFXBench
Taking a look at the leaked specifications of the HTC Nexus Sailfish, it seems like the Nexus Sailfish is the budget variant of this year’s Nexus lineup, the successor to the Nexus 5X. The HTC Nexus Sailfish is powered by a 2.1GHz Quad-Core CPU along with 4 Gigabytes of RAM. It will feature a 5-inch 1080p display that is powered by an Adreno 530 GPU. For the camera, the Nexus Sailfish is going to have a 12MP 4K rear camera with an 8MP front snapper. The smartphone is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset. For storage, it will also have 32 Gigabytes of internal memory.
Also, if you look at the “OS” row, you’ll notice something peculiar. It says “Invalid Android Google Edition”, which means the OS is not properly recognized by GFXBench. Well, this probably means that the HTC Nexus Sailfish is going to feature Android 7.0 Nougat. And if the Nexus Sailfish features Android 7.0, then the Nexus Marlin will also have it. This year’s Nexus devices will also feature Google’s Nexus Launcher, which is going to be updated and improved.
If these are the specifications of the HTC Nexus Sailfish, they’re quite decent for a mid-end $300 smartphone. More details about the HTC Nexus Sailfish and Marlin will be revealed as time goes by. Till then, keep it set on GeeksULTD.
