It may be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Processor, though it has not yet been specified. You will have a vivid display of 5.5 inch, unlike the 5.7 or 5.8 inch display of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and its storage system will support up to 128 GB of storage. As Android Police has told, this storage will be either 32GB or 128 GB,no 64GB will be available in between them this time as they have decided to skip 64 GB variant this time. In short, we can expect these things from HTC Nexus, if the rumor is correct :
HTC Nexus phone MARLIN Features
- 2560 x 1440 pixel AMOLED display.
- 5.5 inch screen.
- Ram of 4 GB
- Back fingerprint scanner
- USB Type C port
- 32 GB to 128 GB of storage.
- Bluetooth 4.2
- 3450 mAh battery
It has also been heard that HTC is going to offer 12 MP rear camera, unlike 13MP camera of Moto G4 and 8 MP front-facing camera. But we will not have a feature of LED Back light as we have in Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro. If we compare Marlin with its elder brother Sailfish ,we will find out that most of their features are same, but with few differences like Marlin will appear with 5.5 inch display while Sailfish had only 5 inch. Again, this larger facility is sure to affect the battery system also.But its battery will not be non-removable as we had in Sony Xperia XA. Its 4 GB Ram is also common like LeEco Le 2. Its fingerprint sensor at the back, like in Motorola Moto X will be helpful to keep your data secret.
Hopefully it will be successful like Oppo phones. Now we will just have to wait unless it is out in market for purchase with proper information of features.
