We have been hearing about HTC-built Nexus devices from a long time. HTC is said to be the new manufacturer of Nexus devices and we will see not one, but two HTC Nexus smartphones in 2016. Out of two, specifications of the upcoming Nexus phone codenamed “Sailfish” (aka “S1”) has been leaked. According to Android Police, Sailfish will be the successor to the Nexus 5X and is the smaller of the two phones.

Talking of specifications, Sailfish is said to come with a 5-inch Full HD (1920x1080p) display with ~440PPI pixel density, powered by 2.0GHz Quad-core 64-bit processor (of unknown make) paired with 4 gigs of RAM.
