Leaked HTC Nexus Sailfish Renders Show Device From Multiple Angles With Key Details


With 2016 about to come to an end, only a couple of flagship devices are expected to be launched this year. Out of these, it's been the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus which have seen the majority of leaks so far. Cupertino's flagships for 2016 won't change much in terms of design. They will however bring a couple of new features on board. These will last the company yet another calendar year. Today's post however is about Google's upcoming Nexus devices. Today, some more alleged renders of the Nexus Sailfish have surfaced, which once again display a rather unorthodox design.

The HTC Nexus Sailfish Surfaces In More Alleged Renders Showing Several Design Details

When it comes to leaks, it's been the HTC Nexus Sailfish which has seen the majority of leaks so far. Out of the two devices expected this year, it'll be Sailfish which will cater to those with budget constraints. The past couple of years have witnessed an evolved approach for the lineup from Google. Last year's Nexus 6P and 5X managed to deliver on both high and medium tiers quite effectively.

Information so far suggests that the Nexus Sailfish will also deliver in similar areas. The device will come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821, coupled with 4GB of RAM on board. This will be supplemented by a 1080p screen and a 12MP rear camera. All of this for an alleged $499 price tag will end up making the device quite an effective offering indeed. Some more alleged renders of the device have crossed our path today. Take a look at them below.

Courtesy of folks over at China, today's alleged render set provides quite a bit of design details for the Nexus Sailfish. The device's back comes with the similar half-glass, half-metal approach which has been rumored earlier as well. However, the presence of a metal chassis for the Sailfish jsut might not stand true. The frame doesn't appear to be different from its overall form. Therefore, all those rumors about a metal frame won't bear any fruit. At the bottom you'll see a speaker grille and at the top you'll see an earphone jack.

There appear to be no buttons or other assortments on the device's left. At the right you'll see the power and the volume buttons. Screen size for the Nexus Sailfish is rumored to be 5 inches. There's no way of confirming that by looking at today's renders. They do stand in line with what has surfaced previously so we just might be inclined to believe that they're the real deal. As always, things will become more clear as we progress through time. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned for the latest.
