HTC Nexus Marlin, listed as Google Marlin, Geekbench single-core score

HTC Nexus Marlin scores appear on Geekbench

The apparent leaks of specs for two forthcoming Nexus smartphones, developed by HTC, have been followed by one of the devices appearing on a popular benchmarking service. The larger of the two smartphones – which has been code named Marlin, or M1 – has shown up on Geekbench, listed under the title ‘google marlin’.

A single-core score of 2084, and a multi-core score of 4969, was recorded by the device. These are similar results to those achieved by HTC’s 2016 flagship smartphone, the HTC 10.

A few days ago Android Wafer reported on the alleged specs of the HTC Nexus Marlin, which is rumoured to be a 5.5-inch device, with 4 GB RAM. Details about the smartphone’s chipset were not included in the leak, although the Qualcomm Snapdragon 818 is a likely contender to power the device.
