Leaked Nexus Sailfish Build File Hints At Snapdragon 820 And 1080p Display

After a bunch of rumors and leaks about the next batch of Nexus devices, it's now almost certain that HTC will be tasked with producing Google's upcoming pair. Not long ago, some specs were leaked for both the bigger model codenamed Marlin and the smaller one, codenamed Sailfish .

Today a fresh recent leak, courtesy of Evan Blass (@evleaks) seems to shed a bit more light on the matter. It is a leaked build.prop file, allegedly from the Salifish handset. For anyone unfamiliar with the guts of the Android OS, the file in question typically holds quite a few internal settings and configuration values that often reveal the hardware platform it is intended for.

In this case, reading thorough the text, we can spot both the "ARM64-V8a" and "msm8996" strings, which point squarely at Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 SoC. This does create us wonder whether the bigger "Merilin" smartphone will utilize the chip as well, or go with the overclocked Snapdragon 821.

Another fascinating value from the file indicates a pixel density of 420ppi. If the originally rumored 5.2-inch classy screen size holds true, then that definitely hints at a FullHD resolution.
