Going by the rumors and leaks, Google?s Nexus 2016 is shaping up very well to become one of the powerful devices of this year. With Android 7.0 Nougat onboard, this handset will turn out to be a dream device for stock Android fans.
Although the online buzz was modest when the search giant launched the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X, the current expectation is that Google will work its magic out this year just like how it hit the right note with the original Nexus 5 from 2013.
Killer LG Nexus 5X Discount Deal
While we wait for the release of the next-generation Nexus 2016 smartphones, eBay has silently discounted the LG-built Nexus 5X released last year.
Fans of Google can now purchase the?16GB variant of the Nexus 5X for just $199.99, down from $349.99. eBay is clearing up the old inventory to make way for the next-generation device, which is being built by HTC.
Both Carbon and Quartz variants of the 5X have been listed as available. It is worth noting that this 4G-enabled factory unlocked device works only with GSM carriers.
Interested buyers should note that, so far, 1,601 units of this discounted model have been sold, which means it is selling like hotcake. However, only limited quantities are available on sale. Hence, if you are interested, you may have to rush.
Google?s Nexus 2016 Smartphones
It is a known fact that the Nexus 2016 devices are tied to the codename ?HTC Sailfish? and ?HTC Marlin.? HTC has reportedly used a quad-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 820) processor to power the devices. While Adreno 530 GPU takes care of the graphics requirement, the internal configurations are backed by 4GB of RAM.
As mentioned above, both models will run the latest Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
Furthermore, we are hearing that the variants will feature a 5.5-inch display and a QHD resolution of 2,560 x 1440 pixels. The Nexus devices will reportedly come equipped with 32GB of built-in storage space, with or without a microSD card slot.
Other?reported Nexus 2016 specifications include a 12 or 13-megapixel rear-facing sensor, along with a generous 8-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies and video chats.
In general, Nexus fans always complain about the modest battery unit housed in the handsets. However, this time around, Google has given heed to the user feedback and has reportedly housed a solid 3,450mAh battery cell onboard the HTC Marlin. But then, in sharp contrast, the?HTC Sailfish will apparently settle for a 2,770mAh battery cell.
Apart from these, the Nexus 2016 handsets are believed to come with a fingerprint scanner, USB Type C port and enhanced speakers. If reports are true, the upcoming devices will flaunt a mix of metal, glass and plastic body.
