By on

Stock Android fans across the globe are eagerly waiting for the?Google Nexus 2016 release. As we already know, there are two devices, codenamed ?HTC Sailfish? and ?HTC Marlin,? in the offing. And today, the bigger sibling, Sailfish, apparently made a silent visit to not one but two benchmark sites confirming many key specifications.

A screenshot of the AnTuTu report was recently shared via China?s?Weibo. According to the post, the upcoming Google Nexus 2016 Sailfish will come backed by a good 4GB of RAM this time around.

This device will come equipped with 32GB of native storage space. We believe 32GB could be the base version. Sure, past rumors also suggested the same Nexus 2016 specifications. However, this is the first time the devices made its way through prominent benchmark testing sites.

Apart from the internal configurations, the upcoming Nexus handset will reportedly flaunt a generous 8MP front-facing shooter for selfies. And the rear-facing camera unit will apparently come with a 13MP lens.

Software-wise, there is no surprise here as the benchmark site says the Nexus 2016 runs ?Android NMR1,? which translates to ?Android Nougat Manufacturer Release 1.?

The?Geekbench testing site, on the other hand, says the HTC Sailfish will come powered by a quad-core processor, most probably a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chip, running at 1.59GHz. The version of device that visited Geekbench reportedly ran Android N, and not Android NMR1.

The single and multi-core scores, according to the site, are 2,158 and 5,355, respectively. The device which visited this benchmark site goes by the name ?Google Sailfish,? whereas the one that toured AnTuTu was called ?Google Nexus Sailfish.?
