Reliable smartphone leakster Evan Blass today shared a build.prop file that reveals quite a few key specifications of the upcoming HTC-made Nexus “Sailfish” or “S1”.
Unsurprisingly, the build.prop file points to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset powering the handset. Majority of flagship Android smartphones released this year run on the Snapdragon 820, so it only makes sense for Google and HTC to go with the tried and tested chip for this year’s Nexus smartphones. However, a recent rumor had suggested that both the “Sailfish” and “Marlin” could launch with the Snapdragon 821 SoC inside, so we don’t think we can be sure just yet.
The build.prop file also tells us that the display on the “Sailfish” will have a pixel density value of 420, which hints at a 1080 x 1920 resolution display with a diagonal size of around 5.2-inches.
