This handset has been in the rumor mill for a while, but now new details emerge, revealing that it carries a Snapdragon 820/821 under the hood.

The next-gen Nexus devices have been in the rumor mill for a while, but most of their specs are still unknown. Now, it looks like well-known leakster Evan Blass got a ROM dump from such a device and some new specs have been spotted inside it.

HTC S1, also known as Sailfish, is the smaller of the alleged HTC Nexus devices currently in the works, and its build.prop file has been shared on Twitter. According to this file, the HTC Nexus Sailfish has a full HD display with a 420 ppi density - as long as its screen size is 5.2 inches, as previously rumored. The chipset mentioned by the file is MSM8996 - widely known as Qualcomm Snapdragon 820. However, this might be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 as well, since MSM8997 referred to both Snapdragon 800 and 801 in the past.

All the above should be taken with a grain of salt for now, since build.prop files are very easy to modify by third parties. We will let you know as soon as we find out anything new about the upcoming Nexus devices, so stay tuned.
