This could be the first photo of the HTC-built Nexus Marlin


They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. That may be true most of the time, but the photo we have today is likely worth a little less. According to TechDroider, the image below is the first real photo of the HTC Marlin. While this should get a lot of Android fans quite excited, the photo itself is a bit of a disappointment. While we’d like to get a peek at the phone’s design, what we’re treated to is a device enclosed in a protective case and a photo that’s cropped closely around the phone’s display. The only real information revealed by the photo is that the device is currently running on Android N with the latest July security patch installed.

The source claims that the device in question features 128GB of internal storage, a metal body which resembles that of the HTC 10 and a fingerprint sensor located on the back.


We don’t know when Google is planning to unveil its HTC-build Nexus phones. Since the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X were officially shown off in late September of 2015, we may need to wait another 8 to 10 weeks.

Are you willing to wait that long or are you planning to jump on the Note 7 when it hits store shelves after its August 2 launch date?
