HTC’s upcoming Nexus phones will come in two sizes, a larger device codenamed ‘Marlin’ as well as a smaller device codenamed ‘Sailfish’. The two phone will reportedly only differ in battery size and screen size & resolution, so when we see the Sailfish appearing on yet more benchmark site it’s a good chance to see what’s in store for both phones.
The Sailfish version of the 2016 Nexus last popped up on the GFXBenchmark site almost a week ago, this latest entry on AnTuTu and Geekbench show similar specs as those that showed up on GFXBench.
While the Geekbench results don’t list the exact processor details, the AnTuTu results do, confirming the Snapdragon 820 and the slower clock speeds on Geekbench are a little different to what we’ve seen so far on GFXBench, so take these results all with a grain of salt, it is after all relatively easy to fake results on these sites. So, take a look:
So, it’s basically a Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM and either a 12MP or 13MP camera based on who you believe. The rumoured specs initially showed up on Android Police who believe the camera will be a 12MP module. The rest of the Marlin/Sailfish specs currently look like this:
|Display||5″ FHD (1920 x 1080) display @ 440 ppi||5.5″ QHD (2560×1440) AMOLED display @ 534 ppi|
|Processor||Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor||Quad-core Qualcomm processor|
|Battery||2,770 mAh||3,450 mAh|
The rumour is that we’ll see these phones sooner rather than later, so we’ll see for ourselves soon enough.
