Are these the specs of the next HTC Nexus?

The leaked specs are a mild bump up from the Nexus 5X's

The HTC Sailfish or what is going to be the next Nexus 5X is apparently in production and its purported specs have been leaked.

It's not going to be much bigger than the current 5X, but will get some upgrades where memory and storage are concerned. Expect a 5in 1080p screen, 2GHz quad-core processor, 4GB of RAM, a 2770mAh battery and surprise, a 32GB storage capacity with no mention of a smaller 16GB variation.

Also expect a similar rear-mounted fingerprint scanner as the current Nexus 5X, as well as the USB Type-C port, bottom firing speakers and top mounter headphone jack. Camera-wise, it'll still be a low-ish 12MP rear camera and 8MP front camera.

Besides Sailfish, it seems pretty much confirmed that HTC is making the higher-end successor to Huawei's Nexus 6P, currently codenamed Marlin.

It's a pity Huawei won't get a longer period making Nexus devices considering the Huawei Nexus 6P is a pretty decent device and the LG Nexus 5X is also a good successor to the previous LG Nexus 5. Thing is Nexus devices have more commonly appealed to those who were enamoured with stock Android. But with the fierce competition in the China smartphone market, creating high-spec smartphones that are competitively priced is the current market trend, profit margins be damned.

We'll keep you in the loop if and when the specs are confirmed.
