Courtesy of Steve Hemmerstoffer from NowhereElse, we now have an image that shows us certain details of the upcoming HTC Nexus Sailfish on an AnTuTu listing. As is often the case, the leaked listing was found on the Chinese social networking site Weibo.


We can see from the image here that the Sailfish will sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB of RAM, a Full HD display, 8mp/13mp - front/rear cameras and 32GB of internal storage. Nexus smartphones always get the latest OS to boot, so it's no real surprise to see that it's running on Android 7 Nougat Manufacturer Release version 1.


As one can see from the spec sheet here, it's quite identical to the Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge and Galaxy Note 7 in terms of power, but then again, most flagships these days seem to be sporting the near-identical internals anyway. Some of them like the OnePlus 3 have even surpassed them by adding 6GB of RAM into the fray. However, we will wait to see if the HTC Nexus Marlin has something different to offer, although reports indicate that it won't really be that much different from the Sailfish, apart from a larger display.



In case, you are interested in benchmark scores, check out what TechDroider posted earlier. The Nexus Sailfish seems to have scored 2158 (single-core) and 5355 (multi-core) in the Geekbench benchmarking test. We will find out more in October as it's rumoured to be released on the 4th of that month.

Although some of these features may not make it to the final version of the firmware, let's take a look at the best of what we have seen so far in the beta builds of the Android Nougat 7.0 OS for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.


The New Look - Everything from the app icons and fonts, to the general color scheme of the device has been changed. Although opinions may differ, we think it looks better now than it ever did before.



Blue Light Filter - This will help relieve the pressure usually accumulated in our eyes from spending long amounts of time looking at a phone screen.



Changes in the Notification Panel - You can rearrange the icons in the Quick Settings panel, change the grid size and move the brightness slider around. A revamped notification panel will also allow you to reply to conversations right from the notifications menu.



Resolution Scaling - You will have the option to choose between 1280 × 720 (HD), 1920 × 1080 (Full HD) and 2560 × 1440 (QHD) resolution for your phone's display, with the default set at 1080p for better power-efficiency.



Put to Sleep - This one is a very useful feature which lets you stop an app from auto-starting, receiving updates, using power in the background or send you push notifications by just long pressing on the icon and choosing, "Put to Sleep."



Performance Mode: The performance of the S7 or the S7 Edge can now be put into the following gears, depending on the task at hand.



Normal: 1080p, video enhancer on, game launcher on, game tools on


Game mode: 1080p, max brightness, game launcher on, game tools on



Entertainment mode: 1440p, max brightness, video enhancer on, UHQ upscaler on



High performance: 1440p, max brightness.


There are plenty of other tweaks, both big and small and we are sure to see a few more before the final build is released.
