Rumours: Specs for the HTC-build Nexus “Marlin” appears online


marlinnexus.jpgWe have seen the specs for the “Sailfish” Nexus model, and now we have the specs of the second model, “Marlin” spotted online, if the report is legitimate. Both Google devices will be built by HTC this time around, and the specs of the phone looks to be quite good for a flagship device.

The specifications for the “Marlin” device are rumoured to be as follows:

  • Quad-core Qualcomm processor
  • 5.5″ QHD (2560×1440) AMOLED display
  • USB-C port
  • 12MP rear camera, 8MP front
  • Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner
  • 4GB RAM
  • 3450mAh battery
  • Bottom-firing speakers
  • 32/128GB of storage
  • Bluetooth 4.2

When compared with the “Sailfish”, “Marlin” looks to be the bigger brother, thanks to the larger screen and larger battery. However the other specs looks to be the same, so the major differentiators may just be the storage and screen size. Will we see the Nexus line have a multi-model similar specs concept? Stay tuned to TechNave to find out soon.
