nexus_5xBy now many of you guys have heard the rumors that HTC will be making two Nexus handsets this year. They are codenamed Marlin and Sailfish, with the latter supposedly being the smaller version of the two, but otherwise it seems that both handsets appear to be roughly the same. We’ve read some rumored specs, some of which was seemingly confirmed in a ROM dump.

Now according to a listing on GFXBench as spotted by GadgetOx (via Droid-Life), some of those specs have been “confirmed”. According to the listing, the Sailfish appears to pack a 5-inch Full HD display, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset under its hood. We’re also looking at 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and what appears to be an 11MP rear-facing camera on the back, which is odd unless the benchmarks have rounded it down from 12MP.

Other than that, the specs are more or less in line with what we’ve heard so far, so really they aren’t that surprising. Of course we should caution you guys from buying into the specs completely. Benchmarks can be faked or inaccurate, as was recently demonstrated when OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei shot down the rumors of a OnePlus 3 Mini which was recently spotted on benchmarks as well.

In any case take it with a grain of salt, but last we heard, the HTC Nexus phones could be on track for a 4th October launch, so check back with us then for the details.
