Each and every year, die-hard Android fans are waiting for one thing, and one thing only – the release of that year’s Nexus lineup.
We already seem to know quite a lot about these, so let us share it all with you!
It looks that they won’t be styled after the HTC 10 as it was initially speculated, but will employ more signature design that was already compared to the one of the Nexus 4 and the HTC Evo 4G LTE.
Both the Marlin and the Sailfish are expected to be total look-alikes with the only difference being their overall size and probably the build materials.
So far, the leaks have shown us that both devices will feature two-tone black and gray design at the back, with what seems to be either glass or another glossy material.
The larger and better-spec’d Marlin is generally expected to boast a metal frame, though the smaller Sailfish could get a plastic one, which will further establish the notion that it is the lower-tier device.
The Marlin will most certainly feature a 5.5-inch display whereas the Sailfish would likely clock in at around 5.2 inches.
Traditionally, there won’t be any physical or capacitive buttons below the display, but both Nexus devices will flaunt a circular fingerprint scanner at their backs. That’s pretty much similar with what the Nexus 6P and 5X offered.
We won’t be surprised by this at all as Google has been rumored to do so for a time now. Remains to be seen if it will turn out to be true, though it won’t matter that much. After all, it’s not the name that makes a smartphone a hit, right?
