It’s been a while since there was any talk about Google’s upcoming Nexus lineup but now there has been new developments regarding the differences between Marlin and Sailfish.
NexusBlog has apparently received word from a source within HTC about Marlin and Sailfish not sharing the same build quality. This does make sense as Marlin being the premium model, will be made almost entirely out of metal like the HTC 10. Whereas Sailfish being the cheaper model, could sport a polycarbonate build or maybe even some metal similar to the recent Desire releases.
Both phones are expected to come with a Snapdragon 820/821 SoC and Android 7.0 Nougat.
