Another day, another leak for 2016's all-but-confirmed Google Nexus smartphone range. This time it's the price of the two devices – codenamed Sailfish and Marlin – that has come to light, with an 'internal source' at HTC claiming that pricing starts at $449 (£343, €402) for the smaller, 5in Sailfish device.

As for its larger sibling, the 5.5in Marlin will allegedly retail at $599 (£458, €536) via Google's Play Store. According to the source, the listed pricing relates to the base 32GB model for both devices, with a more expensive 64GB variant also expected.

An official reveal for the two handsets is also expected in "little more than a month" according to the NexusBlog report, prior to a rumoured October release date. After an initial leak in June, the HTC manufactured duo have been widely exposed through insider information and benchmark tests.

Images claiming to show the devices in the wild recently circulated online, seemingly confirming that both handsets have a similar design language. The pair are expected to run Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box and refresh the current crop of Nexus smartphones, with Sailfish replacing LG's Nexus 5X and Marlin coming in for Huawei's Nexus 6P.

Speculation has pointed toward a relatively similar specification set-up for both phones, although the larger Marlin is expected to tout a 5.5in QHD AMOLED display and an 3450mAh battery, as opposed to Sailfish's 5in 1080p Full HD display and 2770mAh battery.

With Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processors, 4GB RAM and Adreno 530 GPUs also tipped to feature, there is seemingly little else left to be revealed about the latest Nexus pairing, aside from a non-fishy retail-friendly name of course.
