Specs of HTC’s second Nexus smartphone ‘Marlin’ have been revealed

Details of Google’s 2016 Nexus devices have surfaced once again.

Last week, a rumour surfaced that one of the two reportedly HTC-made devices, known under its codename ‘Sailfish,’ would sport a 5.0-inch display, quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor, 4GB of RAM, 2770mAh battery, 12MP rear camera and 8MP front-facing shooter.

Coming hot on the heels of that leak, rumoured specs of the second HTC-designed Nexus device have emerged. According to Android Police, ‘Marlin,’ or M1, is the larger of the two upcoming Nexus smartphones and will feature a 5.5-inch QHD (2560×1440) AMOLED display, Quad-core Qualcomm processor, USB-C port, 12MP rear camera, 8MP front-facing camera, 4GB RAM, 3450mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.2 with 32GB and 128GB internal storage (no 64GB). In addition, HTC has included a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and dual speakers on the bottom of the device.

Unfortunately, there is no indication of the design of either Marlin or Sailfish. “We also believe, at this time, that Sailfish and Marlin will share basically identical design language, with the only physical differences being those necessitated by proportion,” says Android Police.

It’s expected the new Nexus devices will be unveiled late September and be available in October, similar to last year’s release.
