Before the rumors revealed HTC Nexus specs, there were news on Google Nexus 7 which will arrive this year. However, after a render on HTC Nexus 2016 leaked on the internet, this might be another clue on the smartphone's design that is similar to HTC 10.
The Taiwanese phonemaker might make Google Nexus 2016 HTC with similar design and place premium features for higher specs, IBTimes reported.
Another speculation on the HTC Nexus specs include 4 GB of RAM and possible Android Nutella with better specs than the previous Nexus 5X that's packed with 5.2 inch display, 12.3 MP rear camera and runs Android Marshmallow.
