Specs leak for upcoming HTC-built Nexus phones Specs have leaked for Google's upcoming Nexus device, this one built by HTC.
Codenamed 'Marlin,' the flagship device will allegedly have a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display, be powered by an unknown quad-core Snapdragon processor and 4GB RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. Additionally, the phone will have dual 8MP/12MP cameras, Bluetooth 4.2, a 3450mAh battery and the same rear fingerprint scanner as its predecessors.

There have also been rumors of a project codenamed 'Sailfish,' a smaller model of the next-generation Nexus, just like this generation has the 6P and the smaller 5x.

As always, expect an official announcement in the August - October timeframe for the new Nexus devices.

I've seen the specs for the phone's cpu's from the full stories.. quad core, all cores under 2 GHz. Two of the cores slower than the other pair...

I don't get it, my Nexus 5 from a few years ago is quad core 2.3 GHz, with NFC and wireless charging. Consumers are getting ripped off bad, just as we are with laptops hiding their inferior clock speeds behind obfuscated model names. An extra 1/2 hr of battery life and 1/16th of an inch gain on screen size doesn't really compensate for loss of performance and feature removal

Why has the maximum amount of internal storage stalled out at 128GB? Phones should start at 64 and go up to at least 256.

I tend to disagree. The 30-40 min extra battery life could be worth thousands to some. Like myself, it would definitely be worth several thousand in my field of work.

Im thinking of going to a nexus and putting the NoteII in retirement.

This is superman
