Nexus, HTC Working on New 2016 Nexus Phones Including a Snapdragon 821 Powered Marlin

It’s been ages since HTC started working with Nexus thus causing its involvement with Stock Android devices to grow. They manufactured the very first Nexus handset, the Nexus One in 2010 and went further by also developing the Nexus 9 tablet.

During the first quarter of the year, rumors that the Taiwanese Giants would be releasing two new Nexus handsets were on everyone’s lips. But now it’s no longer a rumor as sources have revealed that plans are indeed in the works to bring in two new Nexus handsets codenamed Sailfish and Marlin.

The Sailfish is said to replace the Nexus 5X and last month the handset’s specs were released. The device comes with a 5 inch Full HD touchscreen display with a resolution of about 1080 x 1920 pixels.

It should draw energy from a 2770 mAh battery and will be powered by a quad-core CPU clocked with speeds of up to 2.0GHz, alongside 4GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage. There is a fingerprint scanner at the back of the handset just below a 12MP main shooter which should be accompanied upfront by an 8MP selfie snapper.

The larger and much better Marlin (aka the HTC Nexus M1) on the other hand would feature an 5.5inch 2K AMOLED screen with a 1440 x 2560 display resolution. It would be powered by a Snapdragon 821 quad-core CPU coupled with an Adreno 530 GPU and a 3450 mAh battery.

It comes with a fingerprint scanner located at the back, a rear camera of 12MP and the front camera at 8MP. The handset will also have a 4GB RAM, a 32GB or 128GB internal storage.
