It seems that the Nexus 5 will remain the smartphone apex of value-for-dollar in Google’s standardized Android device lineup.

With all of the top-of-the-line specifications and standardized hardware design that have been discussed for both the smaller “Sailfish” and larger “Marlin” devices supposedly to be made by HTC this year, it’s really no surprise that the tab has picked up this year.

Specificaly, Nexus Blog states from its “internal sources in HTC” that the Google Store will start both devices off at 32GB of storage. The Sailfish will go for $449 while the Marlin is said to start at a nearly-painful $599. The 16GB Nexus 5X was priced $379 at launch (the 32GB variant was $429) while the 32GB Nexus 6P was $499. Another point of comparison — the HTC-made Nexus One, released in 2010, took up a bill of $530.

With these purported figures, it looks like a Sailfish will be the catch of the year in 2016. Regardless of rumor, though, we have to wonder if the discount chain to follow will be as quick and gradual as it was for the 5X.
