The last time we saw HTC make an Android device it was with the Nexus 9. However there have been rumors to suggest that 2016’s Nexus could be made by HTC, although there have also been claims that Huawei could be returning to the Nexus scene as well, and given that last year we saw Nexus phones from Huawei and LG, we suppose this is entirely possible.
That being said, the folks at Android Police have received a tip which they claim are the specs belonging to the HTC “Sailfish” handset, which apparently is the smaller of the two HTC Nexus handsets that are reportedly in the works. Yes, you read that right, HTC will apparently be making not one, but two Nexus phones.
So what are we looking at? Oddly enough the specs for Sailfish aren’t too impressive. It will feature a 5-inch Full HD display and a quad-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz. It will come with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, USB-C connectivity, a 12MP rear-facing camera, an 8MP front-facing camera, and a 2,770mAh battery.
Like we said, not very impressive. In fact even the recently launched OnePlus 3 with its affordable price tag packs higher-end specs than this, but then again this is a rumor so take it with a grain of salt. It is possible that this could be the lower-end model to entice customers on a budget to adopt Nexus phones, but in the meantime we can’t say we’re too impressed.
