Specs for the HTC Nexus M1 handset leak
posted by Alan F. / Jul 01, 2016, 1:43 AM
Since the beginning of this year, rumors have circulated suggesting that HTC would be building two Nexus handsets for 2016. One is code named Marlin while the other sports the code name Sailfish. Last month, we passed along leaked speaks pertaining to the Sailfish model. Today, we have specs rumored to be found on the Marlin (aka the HTC Nexus M1).
The HTC Nexus M1 will feature a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Under the hood you'll find the Snapdragon 821 SoC with a quad-core CPU, and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB/128GB of native storage. A fingerprint scanner is on board, and the camera combo from back to front weighs in at 12MP/8MP. Rear speakers on the bottom of the phone are separated by the Type-C USB port placed between the grilles. A 3450mAh battery keeps the lights on.
HTC was responsible for the very first Nexus phone back in 2010, the well regarded Nexus One. In addition, the Nexus 9 tablet was also manufactured by HTC. The HTC 10 flagship was arguably the company's best phone in three years, which bodes well for the new Nexus models.
Thanks for the tip!

The render looks nice, as long as they keep the top and bottom bezels under control, it should be good to go.

Exactly, the lesser the top and bottom bezels the better. Hopes there is a 6" version. Intending to buy a Nexus for the first.

Looks great, but probably a fan concept.

Looks pretty darn cool, for a Nexus! My Nexus 5 is an ugly duckling, and I can say the same about The latest Nexus Duo... It's just a bummer that it's a bloody Phablet... Lets hope the other Nexus turns out to be smaller at 4.7" or something... Oh well, G'Day!

If true, this phone honestly doesn't seem like a much of an upgrade, seeing as the battery capacity is the same and the front facing speakers are gone. The downgrade in screen size also upsets me, but isn't necessarily a bad thing as I know many people prefer smaller phones.

Well, you can count this as the first phone from HTC that I'm interested in. And while I'm sure the image is concept art for an HTC enthusiast, I'll admit that it looks very sleek. It would be nice if Nexus devices going forward would have the dual camera configuration on the back of the device to make use of Google Tango. It's a Nexus device for crying out loud, it's supposed to showcase Google's idea of what a smartphone should be. If they don't promote their unique features then why should anyone else bother?

I seriously doubt this is anything like what we'll see. Mostly because the back has nothing on it, no camera or FPS. And other sites are saying a single speaker, not 2 on the bottom. If that is in fact the case, while I wasn't planning on swapping out my 6p this year, that would cement it for me. Love the dual ffs on it. I might've been interested if they put the same Boomsound that they had on the One M7-M9, but switching to the 1 full range/1 bass speaker on the HTC 10 and now having bottom mounted speaker(s) that makes my decision to keep my phone easier.
