Now that the Snapdragon 821 is here, we should be seeing some of the premium smartphones arriving with the new chipset and it looks like the upcoming HTC Nexus Sailfish will be one of them.
According to leaker Evan Blass, the new HTC Nexus Sailfish will be coming in with the MSM8996 processor. While the Snapdragon 820 was also given the same model number, we also know that the Qualcomm would have their chips share the same model numbers at times. We know that the Snapdragon 800 and 801 both had the same model number.
It was also previously revealed that the Nexus Sailfish will be coming in with a 5inch 1080p display and that it will be running on a 64-Bit 2GHz processor. There were also talks about the device coming with a fingerprint sensor.
The good news is that we won’t have to keep guessing for long since Google should be debuting their Nexus smartphone in the Fall.
