Google Nexus 2016 Rumor Round-Up: Metal-Glass Chassis, Upgraded Specs & More

HTC is in charge of producing the Google Nexus 2016 units - dubbed the Marlin and the Sailfish. Not only are they coming with the best mobile software Google currently has to offer, but it will also give the entire family a facelift. Both devices will be part of the seventh release from the Google Nexus line.

As Mobile N Apps reports, the Marlin and Sailfish will come with a new metal design and glass chassis. In fact, a glass piece will make up the entirety of the back of the handhelds. The Google Nexus 2016 devices will also be much sleeker as compared to its predecessors.

Vine Report adds that the upcoming Nexus phones are dropping one particular design aspect that has become synonymous with the brand. That is, the "Nexus" branding normally found on the back. In substitution, there will be a "G" for Google instead. There was no HTC logo found on the render as well.

A render video of the items, based off descriptions of the devices should look, is found below. Of course, a render of the devices do not confirm the look by any means. It is, instead, the best guess for the same.

Other than the smart look for the Marlin and Sailfish, the upcoming releases will also come installed with the best specs and features. They will both be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, which is the most powerful one currently in the market. Further, it will smoothly run on 4 GB of RAM with 32 GB and 128 GB internal storage choices. The rear camera for both devices will be 12 megapixels, while the front camera will be 8 megapixels.

The larger of the two, the Marlin, will come with a 2K AMOLED 5.5-inch display. It will also arrive with a 3450mAh battery. On the other hand, the Sailfish will come in at 5 inches and a 1080p display, with a 2770mAh battery.
