HTC Nexus M1 surfaces on Geekbench; rumored specs include Android Nougat 7.0 and 4GB of RAM

The HTC Nexus M1 is bookmarked on Geekbench


Which smartphone manufacturer has produced the most Nexus handsets? If you guessed Samsung, you are absolutely... incorrect. Actually, LG has produced a trio of Nexus phones with the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and Nexus 5X.  Samsung has manufactured two, the Nexus S and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Motorola, Huawei and HTC have produced one model each.

If rumors about the two new Nexus models coming from HTC this year are true, the company will finish the year with three Nexus phones, good enough to tie LG at the top. And that doesn't include the Nexus 9 tablet, also made by HTC. The two new HTC Nexus phones include the HTC Nexus S1 carrying a 5-inch display, and the HTC Nexus M1 with a 5.5-inch screen.

Yesterday, we passed along to you some rumored specs for the HTC Nexus M1 that came from China's Weibo micro-blogging site. This morning, we have some more information about the phone thanks to its visit to the Geekbench benchmark site. Combined with the latest speculation, the Nexus M1 is expected to be powered by Android Nougat 7.0.1. It will feature a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The Snapdragon 820 SoC is said to be under the hood with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU.

A 12MP camera should adorn the back of the unit, while an 8MP camera will be found on front to shoot selfies and handle video chats. A rear-mounted fingerprint scanner will be included with the handset, which will have 4GB of RAM and 32GB/128GB of native memory. Two speaker grilles are expected on the bottom of the handset, along with a Type-C port.

The single-core Geekbench score was 2084, while the multi-core tally came to 4969. HTC is rumored to begin shipping the new Nexus models this September. Pricing is unknown for now.

Thanks for the tip!

Seems the super success of s7 edge is going to compel most manufacturers to go for a 5.5 inch display. S7 edge has the advantage of curved screen though.

5.5 inch display in a 5 inch body. Crazy.

almost 5 inch.
72mm is a bit wide for 5 inch, consider note 5 has 76mm with 5.7" and 5.1" regular S7 is only 69mm wide.

Are you sure that its SD 820? If yes,it seems like underclocked version, maybe its a failure of geekbench. Looking forward,5.5 inchers are my favourites but i wouldnt mind even 5.7 inch display.

Could be a lower bin of the 820 or the rumor 818 (lower bin of the 823)

I hope its the 823, just underclocked
Dont care about the minor loss of performance
Underclocking for less heat would be nice, especially for Daydream

Yes,that what i thought that it might be 818,so the situation would be the same as last year>>>Nexus 5X budget phone with 808 and high-end 6P with 810,but then it might mean that bigger variant will be lower-specd,which doesnt make sense at all. So yeah,i hope its 823 too

I would definitely go for a slightly lower clock speed to avoid heating. The SD820 in my S7E can get a bit toasty at times, although I know the thermal envelope should be better in an aluminum body.

The Snapdragon 820 doesn't even meet the standards of Daydream. I still see no legitimate reason for this under-clocked version.

Source for that?
I thought the standards of Daydream havent been released yet?

Underclocking (and therefore unvolting) does reduce heat
So there's a legitimate reason to underclocking

Yaaaawwwn.....Less than 6" display, so boring for the past year in mobile. Yes the .3" smaller screen size made a very noticeable difference, enough for me to return a 6P back to Google.

Why would u want a 6" phone? There are tablets with cellular capabilities. Try holding that to your ear.

The HTC 10 was much better than the S7. If HTC made a phablet version, it would have been better than the S7 edge and Note 5 as well.

Wish the phone to be compact and sleek version of the m10 with less bezel,flat back and not thicker than 8mm.I have a feeling both will be more premium with aluminium or glass,plastic - ahhh nooo.

Dang! I was hoping they kept the front facing speakers.
Guess it's Note7 or Moto z with mods for me.
