HTC and Google are on the verge of launching the new generation of Nexus smartphones.It has already been leaked that the devices will be called as Marlin and Sailfish.
Only a few days ago, the HTC Sailfish was spotted in benchmark tests. It was clear from the outcome that the HTC Sailfish will be a mid-range device to support the HTC Marlin. Now, the HTC Marlin has been spotted on AnTuTu benchmark tests with revealed that it will be a proper high-end device to challenge the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the LG G5.
Specifications of the upcoming HTC Marlin are not new since they have been leaked quite a while ago, but this is probably the best confirmation of the same. HTC Marlin will sport a 5.5 inch display with Quad HD resolution.It is the finest resolution levels, which not compromise on the battery life, available now and HTC Marlin will be able to challenge high-end devices from Samsung and Apple due to this aspect. The 5.5-inch screen size has become the preferred choice for high-end phones since it provides a decent mix of user friendliness and large screen real estate.
A snapdragon 820 processor is the best that is available now. It does not have any of the overheating issues plagued by the previous generation. Coupled with 4 GB of RAM, this processor is designed to provide the best in terms of performance on the HTC Marlin. Following the launch of phones with 6 GB of RAM like the OnePlus 3, there is a tendency for the 4 GB of RAM to feel slow in comparison. This, however, is not the case since this quantity of RAM only suffers when multitasking with high end games is called upon.
A 13-megapixel rear camera should be of high standards as will be the eight-megapixel shooter in the rear. The overwhelming popularity of selfies mean that it may not be long before the front and rear cameras employ a similar megapixel count. One of the disappointing elements of the HTC Sailfish was the mediocre battery size, which seems to be a deliberate action. The HTC Marlin feels like a proper high-end device only because of the 3450 mAh battery, which is more than sufficient enough to handle the incredible power of the device for more than a day. Fast charging is expected to be standard.
