The FCC has officially approved two Nexus phones for the U.S. market. It’s confirmed that both phones will be made by HTC and will run Android 7 Nougat.

Marlin & Sailfish

Codenamed Marlin and Sailfish, the model numbers are G-2PW2100 and G-2PW4100. It’s thought that Sailfish will be the successor to the Nexus 5X, while Marlin will be the bigger model that replaces the Nexus 6P.

The only specs that the document lists is that the phones will have 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth LE and NFC. The Sailfish model was thought to have been leaked by a Twitter user, and a rendering is seen below:

Back in April, some mysterious specs showed up on Geekbench for a “google Nexus 6P”. The problem is that the specs were different than the actual Huawei Nexus 6P phone, leading many to speculate that this was a new device.

The name for the motherboard was Marlin. The CPU specs sounded like it would be a Snapdragon 820, and the phone had 4GB of RAM. Another rumor says that the new phones will have 3D Touch-like shortcuts, and the second Android N Developer preview referenced these as well.
