The phone pictured is the ?Sailfish? and is reported by Android Police to be the smaller of the two models designed with a 5-inch screen. It closely resembles the current Nexus 5X that includes a similar camera and front plate design while boasting a fingerprint scanner on the back. Android Police also believes that the larger 5.5 inch ?Marlin? will be closely similar to the ?Sailfish? with both sharing ?the same basic industrial design and materials? and that both phones will also sport the same specification with only a difference in screen resolution, battery life, and screen size. The report also affirms that there are no plastic versions of the two phones and that Google?s iconic ?G? logo is absent in the leaked phone photos but is expected to be added onto the device once the phones enters into full production, which will in turn replace the Nexus logo.

In the user?s latest tweet, he says that: ?AndroidPolice’s [metallic] Nexus isn’t of the final design. The Nexus in my picture had a full glass back.?

Nexus phones.
