A few days ago, discouraging and confusing rumors have Nexus fans worried, because they claimed that Google has cancelled the new Nexus Marlin and Sailfish. This was unlikely to happen, especially because a new batch of leaked images showed both phones in their entire splendor. We already knew how they look like and what specs they will come with, but now, another mystery has been solved. An unverified source has leaked their prices, but before jumping to a conclusion, it’s important to know that Google hasn’t confirmed the information.
HTC has built both next gen Nexuses and the internal source that leaked their prices said that they’ll be more expensive than the previous models. While the Nexus 5X 32GB cost $429 when it was released and the Nexus 6P 32GB cost $70 more, the 32GB Nexus Sailfish will be available for $449 and Marlin will have even a higher price of $599.
Google hasn’t commented anything on this rumor yet, and actually, the company hasn’t even specified a release date of the Sailfish and Marlin, although there are many media websites claiming that the new Nexuses will be announced in September. Either way, they will come pre-installed with Nougat, which is already rolling out to older Nexus devices.
Now, we’ll talk about their specs, and we’ll start with the Sailfish, which is the mid-range variant with a 5-inch Full HD screen, a quad-core 2.0GHz processor backed by 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Most likely, the primary camera will support a resolution of 12MP and the selfie snapper from the front side will have a resolution of 8MP. Below the rear camera will sit a fingerprint scanner and under the metallic panel that will be available in Silver, Black and Gold colors will be integrated a 2770mAh battery.
Marlin will be the larger variant with a 5.5-inch QHD screen and will be powered by a more powerful Qualcomm processor.
