A new leak has provided insight into the specs of one of Google's 2016 Nexus models, the HTC Marlin. An AnTuTu benchmarking test has been revealed on Twitter by famed smartphone tipster Steve Hemmestoffer revealing the core tech specs of the HTC Nexus Marlin.

The tweet reveals the specs of the larger of the two Nexus 2016 models, HTC Marlin. It shows the Marlin will have a Quad HD resolution with 2560 X 1440 pixel density with an Ardeno 530 GPU. The device will run on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 processor with a 4GB RAM and 32GB ROM.

The phone will have a 13-megapixel rear camera along with an 8-megapixel front camera. It will also run on Android 7.0 Nougat and most likely be the first device along with Sailfish to have the new Android OS on board.

The Marlin, which is the larger-screened model, will have a 5.5-inch screen while the Sailfish will have a 5-inch screen. Sailfish is rumoured to share most of the features of Marlin with the exception of battery capacity and screen size. Both handsets are also likely to have identical designs.

There has been no official confirmation from Google on the release of the two handsets but some recent reports have hinted towards an October release. At the same, Google is slated to announce the Android 7.0 Nougat, the final preview version of which was released last month.
