Details of what is believed to be HTC's next Nexus phone have been spotted on Geekbench, according to a report.
(CCM) — The veils of secrecy have been ripped off the specifications for one of HTC's two planned new Google Nexus phones, according to a report in Tech Times. HTC has agreed to produce the two Nexus phones for Google to succeed the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X, although until now little was known about them apart from two recently leaked codenames: "Sailfish" and "Marlin". But the specifications for what is believed to be the Marlin smartphone have been recorded on Geekbench, a processor benchmarking application. System information for a device identified as "google marlin" reveals that the handset runs Google's Android 7 Nougat operating system (as expected) and is powered by a Qualcomm ARMv8 quad core processor running at 1.59GHz with 3755 MB of RAM. According to the report, the Marlin phone will be known as the "Nexus M1" and will include a 5.5-inch, 2,560 x 1,440 QHD AMOLED display and feature an Adreno 530 graphics processing unit.
Since the first Nexus phone was released by Google in 2010, the company has partnered with different manufacturers including LG, Motorola, Huawei, and HTC to produce subsequent Nexus handsets.
