As per a trusted source from Android Police, Sailfish which is the smaller device from this year’s nexus line will be the successor to the Nexus 5x.
HTC Sailfish Nexus rumored specifications:
- 5 inch display (1920x 1080p)
- Quad-core 2.0GHz CPU
- 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage
- Android N
- 12MP rear camera
- 8MP front camera
- Rear mounted fingerprint scanner
- Bottom firing speakers
- Top mounted headphone jack
- Bluetooth 4.2, USB Type-C port
- 2,770mAh battery
It is interesting to see that HTC is going with a 5 inch display instead of a 5.2 inch display for the upcoming Nexus 5x successor.
Unfortunately, the report does not offer any images of the Sailfish neither does it share any details about the larger Nexus device which is codenamed as Marlin.
