So it's coming up to that time again so just making the thread ready for any talk about the devices :)




Sounds like 2 this year, both by HTC (flashbacks to the awesome Nexus 1) 


Nexus Merlin is the bigger of the 2 with a reported screen size of 5.5" (Quad HD screen)


• The Nexus Marlin has now appeared on AnTuTu as well, and has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, Adreno 530 graphics, 8Mp and 13Mp cameras, plus a Quad-HD screen.




Nexus Sailfish has a reported screen size of 5" (Full HD)


The specs of the Sailfish Nexus phone have leaked via the GFXBench graphics testing benchmark database. It's expected to feature a 5in full-HD screen, a 2.1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor, Adreno 530 graphics, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and 12- rear and 8Mp front cameras with support for 4K video. An AnTuTu listing also reportedly showing the Nexus Sailfish confirms the Snapdragon 820 processor, Adreno 530 graphics and full-HD screen, but suggests it will have 13Mp- and 8Mp cameras.






I will be going for the Sailfish if i can pull myself away from my s7 edge (I will buy it anyway as I like phones).

Hopefully the budget will allow for the purchase of "Sailfish" at the appropriate time; though my Nexus 4 is still functioning perfectly after three years of ownership
