We’ve already learned all the juicy details about Google’s rumored “Sailfish,” the smaller and ostensibly more affordable Nexus device coming out this fall. Now, benchmarks, via GFXBench, have seemingly confirmed what to expect from the upcoming handset. There aren’t any surprises but it still sounds like one hell of a device.

Here are some of the specs, according to GFXBench:

  • 5-inch 1080p display
  • Snapdragon 820 processor
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 32GB of storage
  • 12-megapixel camera; 8-megapixel front-facing camera

We can also expect the device to sport Android Nougat out of the box, along with a 2,770mAh battery. Of course, none of this has been confirmed, so don’t take your wallets out just yet.

In addition to Sailfish, Google is also rumored to launch another handset codenamed “Marlin,” which may include a 5.5-inch Quad HD screen and 3,450mAh battery. Otherwise, the larger phone is expected to sport very similar specs to Sailfish, so it’ll just be a matter of choosing which size you prefer.

Because we’re getting closer to the consumer launch of Android Nougat, it’s very likely Google’s new Nexus devices are just around the corner. Hopefully, we’ll see a launch by the end of this month or September at the latest.
