HTC is reportedly working on the next Nexus device for Google, which are dubbed as Marlin and Sailfish and they’re expected to be officially unveiled in September alongside Android 7.0 Nougat. Their specs haven’t been confirmed yet, but many leaks from “reliable sources” have surfaced on the internet and earlier this month was posted an unofficial 3D render in which was imagined the final design of the two Nexus devices. Now, Techconfigurations has made a few changes and brought the render to motion in a video that was posted on YouTube.
The previous image hasn’t described the edges of the Nexus phones and Techconfigurations has changed the design here and there, resulting in this masterpiece that you can see below:
As for the internal specs, you should know that Marlin is the phablet version with a 5.5-inch 2K AMOLED display, while Sailfish will have a smaller 5-inch Full HD display. Both devices will share the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 64bit 2.0GHz quad core processor that will be backed by 4GB of RAM and there will two storage options with capacities of 32GB and 128GB.
The cameras will be identical as well, and they will support resolutions of 12MP and 8MP. Marlin will be powered by a bigger battery of 3,450 mAh, while Sailfish will settle for a battery of 2,770 mAh, both of them being non-removable and charged via the USB Type C port.
It isn’t sure if the two Nexuses will look like in the unofficial video that we’ve presented above, where they have a metal body with a frame that has curved edges. Some reports say that Marlin and Sailfish will be released in August, but it’s only up to Google, if the company will fix all bugs in the current Developer Edition of Nougat and will officially launch the new operating system sooner than expected.
