HTC seems to be on a roll after being given a chance to produce this year’s Nexus devices. They’ve already made one, the HTC Google Nexus One, back in 2010. But this year, they are coming out with two HTC devices along with a tablet too. The rumors surrounding the HTC Nexus M1 have been doing the rounds lately and we already have a lot of rumored specs.

The phone is still codenamed as Marlin, and it’s called Google Marlin on the Geekbench posting. Under the hood of the HTC Nexus M1, it is rumored to be the legendary Snapdragon 820 SoC clocked at 1.59GHz, which is quite lower compared to its maximum clock speed. There is also 4GB of RAM to go along with the SD820.
