Biting your nails for the Nexus launch this quarter? We’re creeping up on it ever so slowly and yet, leaks have been all about who’s making it, who else’s making it and how many they’re going to make.
HTC is said to be in charge of two projects — “Marlin” and “Sailfish” — and it seems that Android Police is 80 percent confident that what it’s hearing about the Sailfish device (not to be confused with Jolla’s Sailfish OS) is accurate.
So what’s the payload here? A yet-to-be-known quad-core 64-bit processor clocked at 2GHz paired with 4GB of RAM to power on a five-inch, full HD display. There’s a 12-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front facer. You’ll find the fingerprint sensor on the back, the speaker or speakers and a USB-C port down low and a headphone jack up top. Bluetooth 4.2 is on the device as well as a 32GB variant (though we aren’t sure if it’s the only one) and a 2,770mAh battery.
That unnamed processor may or may not be the Snapdragon 821 that was rumored earlier on. The Sailfish device is also called the S1 and the T50, the latter name potentially referring to its screen size.
