HTC Nexus 2016 Smartphones will Get Rid of Hardware Bias

July 4, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Android Sailfish has been the talk over the past few days. Google’s latest Nexus addition, which will debut Android Nougat, seems to have captured all minds with its hefty hardware array.

Now, thanks to Android Police, that we are having a detailed spec-sheet of its twin brother, Android Marlin.

Both the devices come from HTC, and it appeared earlier that Marlin and Sailfish would iterate the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X respectively from Huawei and LG. While Google boasted the former as its flagship, LG’s device was scaled down to form the small addition in Nexus 2015 smartphones. But that won’t be the case in 2016, according to the revealed specs.

Except for the display differences, Marlin and Sailfish both pack the same bulky list of hardware. The two smartphones will feature the Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit chipset from Qualcomm Snapdragon and will have 4GB RAM. Surprisingly, there won’t a lower- RAM version, which will finally bring Google’s flagship devices on the same line with that of Apple iPhone devices.

The two smartphones will also be having 32GB inbuilt storage. A 12MP camera will be housed on the rear-side of each, and a 5MP camera joins the pack to form the front-cam.

The differences between both the device appears in the form of display. Marlin will be arriving with a 5.7-inch QHD display, while the smaller device will have a 5-inch Full HD display.

Marlin will also be juiced by a 3450mAh battery, which is higher compared to the 2770mAh battery used in Sailfish. But thanks to the display differences that we can expect the life of two devices not to be varying noticeably.

The device specs still remain unconfirmed, and is listed out with a confidence level of 9 out of 10. But going by the history of Nexus leaks brought out by the source, we can expect the same hardware to get featured once Google unveils the Nexus and Nougat devices later this year.
