The Nexus Marlin is believed to sport a 5.5 inch Quad HD screen with 2560 x 1440 px in resolution. Supposedly, it will be powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor and it wil feature 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of native storage space. In terms of camera, it is believed to feature two: a 12 MP rear one and an 8 MP front one.
