The FCC database has seemingly confirmed existing rumors of the continuing partnership between Google and HTC for at least two more Nexus smartphones later this year.

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regularly tests and certifies wireless consumer devices for safety and compliance before they can be available to the public. Its latest listing includes two Google Nexus smartphones from none other than HTC with the model numbers G-2PW2100 and G-2PW4100.

The FCC does not divulge much outside of the supported wireless bands that the devices will carry. As such, both models are expected to support dual-band 802.11ac with Bluetooth LE and NFC. LTE bands include 2/4/5/7/12/13/17/25/26/30/41 that should cover all major U.S. carriers, though some common European bands are missing from these two models. Google is expected to have dedicated SKUs fit for users under European and Asian networks.

Existing rumors are claiming that both devices will each have a Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4 GB RAM, and 13 MP and 8 MP rear and front cameras. The smaller "Sailfish" model should have a 5.2-inch FHD display while the larger "Marlin" model will have a 5.5-inch QHD display. Android 7.0 Nougat will ship pre-installed on both, but it remains unclear when the smartphones will be announced. Based on currently known information, the LG V20 could launch ahead of the new Nexus smartphones to be one of the first with Android 7.0.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
