The larger of the two expected Nexus handsets coming from HTC, the model known by the code name Marlin, has been run through the AnTuTu benchmark test. As a result, AnTuTu was able to post the latest rumored specs for the handset right on its verified Weibo page. From this we can tell you that the Nexus Marlin will carry a 5.5-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution.
Under the hood you will find a Snapdragon 820 chipset featuring a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of internal storage. A 13MP camera will be found on the back of the phone with an 8MP selfie snapper in front. Keeping the lights on is a 3450mAh battery, and Android 7.0 will be pre-installed.
Just last week, the smaller HTC Nexus Sailfish went through AnTuTu with many of the same specs seen with the Marlin. For example, both phones are driven by the Snapdragon 820 chipset, contain 4GB of RAM and have Android 7.0 pre-installed. Additionally, both models feature the same camera combo (13MP on back and 8MP in front) and come with 32GB of native storage. The big difference seems to be the smaller 5-inch screen on the Sailfish, and its lower 1080 x 1920 resolution. In addition, the Marlin is expected to have a metal build while the Sailfish is made with plastic.
