Most companies have released their flagships for the second half of the year, and something that caught my attention was the HTC Nexus. That’s right Nexus as in Google. Google will be working with HTC to create a phone that is currently code-named, ‘Sailfish’. But all that has been unveiled to the public is a leaked 360 video, pictures of the phone, and a bit of confirmed information.
From what the pictures show we can see that the phone will be using USB-C, as well as dual speakers both not visible in the first set of leaks. Some confirmed information is that the phone will measure 143.8 mm x 69.5 mm x 7.3mm at the bottom and expands to 8.5 mm at the top. And in case you were wondering they are not going wireless like apple, the headphone port is located at the top/left corner. What we know hardware wise most of which we knew from the previous leaks, a Full HD display measuring 5.2-5.3 inches (no confirmed size), either a snapdragon 820 processor or the snapdragon 821, and 4GB of RAM. What is expected but not confirmed is 32GB of internal storage, a 12mp camera, an 8mp front camera, and a fingerprint sensor on the back. We will likely be seeing a 2770 mAh battery and it running Android Nougat out of the box. Now you might be saying to yourself well this doesn’t seem much different to the nexus 6p, well what is unique about this phone is the rumored metal and glass build.
I don’t know about you guys but this phone really looks like the iPhone 6 to me. Other than the headphone slot being at the top and the dual speakers this really looks like an iPhone, the backs are almost identical just instead of the iPhone logo, it’s a fingerprint scanner. That’s just a personal opinion, though. But I think a lot is to come with this phone especially with 2 great companies working together like Google and HTC. Can’t wait to see what the price is going to be on this phone!
