Google’s next-generation Nexus series is expected to come out later this month alongside the launch of the brand’s Android 7.0 Nougat OS. The smaller Nexus codenamed Sailfish has now shown up on benchmarking site AnTuTu confirming a number of specs previously spotted on GFXBench a few days ago.
Going by the AnTuTu listing, the Nexus Sailfish is set to sport a 1080p screen which earlier rumors have suggested will measure 5 inches diagonally. Its daily operations could be conducted with the help of a Snapdragon 820 processor. The SoC may be assisted in its efforts by an Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB of RAM.
Furthermore, the Google offering might pack 32GB of internal memory that will probably be expandable via a microSD card slot. With regards to its photography skills, the smartphone could carry a 13MP camera on its back surface with LED flash. It may be paired with an 8MP snapper on the front panel of the device for selfies and video calls.
It should be noted that the GFXBench listing had mentioned a 12MP rear shooter not a 13MP one. There’s no telling as of now which one is accurate. The benchmarking site also gave away the connectivity options which may accompany the Nexus Sailfish such as NFC, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS.
In related news, a recent leak revealed just what the next Nexus launcher could look like under Android 7.0 Nougat’s reign. Google appears to have gotten rid of the standard app drawer icon. Users might have to swipe up or tap on a new arrow symbol to bring forth the app drawer.
