Google Nexus 2016 HTC: Fist Google Smartphone Compatible with Daydream VR?

Previously, there's been a rumor swirling on Google project Daydream that could be the best VR headset released this year. Daydream allows users to navigate, launch apps, watch contents and games, all in VR mode. KnowYourMobile described the VR platform as a combination of impressive 'software and hardware' with specs much higher than its previous Cardboard.

With the Daydream being developed; Google is partnering up with several smartphone makers including Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi and LG to produce Daydream-ready devices.

Google might also need its new Nexus series to have a device offering the compatibility mode. This leads us to the rumored Google Nexus 2016. The HTC-built phone set to launch this year, is rumored to be the first smartphone compatible with Daydream VR.  

Google Nexus 2016 rumors: awesome specs with special screens and sensors?

As Google is rumored to launch two variants of HTC Nexus, named Sailfish and Marlin, these two smartphone variants are expected to be VR-ready to meet today's market. It should have special screen and sensor to be compatible with Daydream VR as well. Aside from that, fans should expect high specs and features.

HTC Sailfish could sport 5.2 inch screen with 420 ppi pixel density, a full HD resolution screen display. It will likely to sport Snapdragon 820 processor and of course, the latest Android OS, Android Nougat. As for HTC Marlin, the handset will sport larger screen, 5.5 inch. Marlin and Sailfish will include USB type C.  

According to the previous leaks, Google Nexus 2016 rear camera will have 12 MP shooter and front camera will sport 8MP shooter. Based on the previous artists' renders, BGR claimed that the HTC Marlin design looks similar to HTC 10.

Thus, the design of Google Nexus 2016 could be inspired by HTC 10 but we expect the new device would be thinner or lighter? TechnoBuffalo reviewed the renders and suggested the public to prepare themselves with a different outcome of the look of the image as this is only a speculation.

Google Nexus 2016 HTC possible release date is in September this year.
