AnTuTu benchmark results of the alleged Google Nexus 2016 Sailfish have been leaked and it shows that the upcoming Android smartphone is just as powerful as the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
Google Nexus 2016 will be the search engine giant’s flagship Android phone line and they are anticipated to launch two variants again similar to last year. The Google Nexus HTC Sailfish is the smaller variant but it still packs quite the punch with what’s under the hood.

Steve Hemmerstoffer discovered the leaked AnTuTu benchmark on Weibo which showed the Google Nexus 2016 Sailfish variant having a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset with 4GB of RAM, BGR has learned. It is also powered by the Adreno 530 GPU and has 32GB for the internal storage capacity.
In terms of the specs, the Sailfish variant is similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with the exception of the screen size and resolution. Google’s Nexus 2016 Sailfish model will only have a 1080p screen with a 13MP camera for the rear.
Another interesting bit is that the Sailfish variant of the Google Nexus 2016 line will run the Android 7.0 Nougat version out of the box which is an advantage over the Galaxy Note 7 and the Galaxy S7 from Samsung. One exclusive feature of the Google Nexus 2016 phones is the Night Light capability to provide better screen brightness at night, The Bitbag reported.
Google has not yet provided the Nexus 2016 phones release date but they are expected to be unveiled by the search engine giant on October 4. Another Geekbench also showed the power of the HTC Sailfish variant with a single-core score of 2158 and a multi-core score of 4355.
The Google Nexus 2016 smartphones will also have constant updates which means that they will most likely reach Android 8.0 next year. HTC Sailfish might be small but it can certainly stand up to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
