Based on previous leaks and rumors, we’ve known what the basic design of the Nexus Sailfish would be for some time. While we’ve seen concept renders based on those details, we now have a much better look at what the phone will look like thanks to leaked photos which show off the front, back and sides of the phone. The photos match up nicely with the concept renders we’ve already seen, sharing a few design details with the newly-leaked HTC Desire 10 Pro.
The leaked images are said to depict the Nexus Sailfish, but the Nexus Marlin (also expected to be built by HTC) is said to share an identical design. The only difference between the two phones will be screen size, screen resolution and battery capacity – giving potential buyers the option to choose between a Nexus phone with a 5.5-inch QHD display and one with a 5-inch 1080 display.
There is also another image which made an appearance on Twitter over the weekend which depicts the phone from a different angle. The basic elements match up with those shown in the image above, but the source claims that the image below features a glass panel which covers the entire back of the phone.
