As you might already know, few of the HTC-made Nexus handsets are planned for this year. While one of them is internally code-named Sailfish (said to be the successor to last year’s LG Nexus 5X), the other one carries a code-name of Marlin.
Both handsets have already had their specs leaked (mentioned below), and now, the Marlin has been spotted on Geekbench. The benchmark listing shows that the device is powered by a quad-core 1.6GHz processor (said to be SD820 SoC), has 4GB of RAM, and comes with Android Nougat out-of-the-box.
It will have a QHD touchscreen, a 12 MP rear camera, an 8 MP front-facing shooter, a quad-core Qualcomm processor, 4GB of RAM, 32 or 128GB of storage, and a 3,450 mAh battery. You’ll see bottom-firing speakers along with a USB Type-C port, as well as a fingerprint scanner on the back. Bluetooth 4.2 will be in too.
If you compare, these specs are inline with the device’s previous leak, which also revealed QHD touchscreen, 12MP/8MP camera combo, 32GB/128GB storage options, and a 3,450 mAh battery. The phone is also said to feature a USB Type C port as well as a fingerprint scanner on the back.
