Google is going back to the roots of the Nexus series, HTC who made the first Nexus device with Nexus One is once again task to make the Nexus device for 2016 with not just one but two of them. Currently there has been no a lot of information given out of the two handsets but we’re having rumors that the devices are indeed common out soon and are currently known internally with the code name Marlin and Sailfish.

As the unveiling of the two said Nexus devices, further confirmation of their existence came straight from FCC. The devices G-2PW4100 (Marlin) for the larger variant and the 2PW2100 (Sailfish) for the smaller variant all suggests the same marketing gimmick made last year by Google. With both devices sized differently for each market segment and user types. We’d also expect the Nexus Marlin to include a much more aggressive hardware specs compared to its smaller sibling.

The Nexus Marlin is said to sport a 5.5-inch display with 1440×2560 resolutions, the smaller Nexus Sailfish should come with a 5-inch screen in Full-HD resolution. Both handsets will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with Adreno 530 GPU however given its flagship status we could at least look forward to a 4GB RAM or perhaps 6GB if luck insist.
