The codes Chromium was discovered on the name ,, Merlin ', which, according to leaks corresponds to one of the smartphone Nexus 2016. New evidence suggests that the heart of this device is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, while the new concept shows us how they could look created by HTC.
To release (probably two) smartphones Nexus 2016 is still a few months, but gradually they become the object of interest to geeks around the world, as more and more often we can meet up with mentions of them in different sources – like now, what reports MyDrivers . In the code of Chromium found mention of three smartphones Nexus line, marked with names ,, Angler ", ,, Bullhead '' and ,, Marlin ''. The first two are well known to us, as are LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P, and according to previous information, the third name refers to one of the smartphone Nexus in 2016. at one time he appeared in Geekbench, where he was designated as the Nexus 6P, so probably we have to deal with the successor of such a model, over which Google is working more intensively. Benchmark told us then, Nexus 2016 will be working under the control of the Snapdragon 820, but according to MyDrivers Google puts however Snapdragon 821, which in relation to the standard version has been overclocked to 2.3 GHz, which should translate into slightly higher performance in a benchmark. the difference will be so slow that it is difficult it will be seen in daily activities, but it will allow Nexus to overtake flagowców the first half of this year – a sort of psychological maneuverings. open question remains the question of who will create Nexus smartphones this year? At first it seemed that this will be HTC, Huawei, however, recently plunged his two cents on the subject, introducing a bit of uncertainty. Given the recent Google plans as to reduce the role of third-party to a minimum this is not really any difference, but I can assume that many geeks will be happy Nexus would see from HTC, looking like the one in the picture above;)
