Google is preparing to launch two new Nexus devices this year with the help of Taiwanese electronics company HTC. The latest updates on these devices revealed the specs and features they will most likely sport.

On Monday, a build.prop file for an S1 device was leaked online and Phone Arena was quick to pick this up as a hint on what consumers can expect from the Nexus Sailfish. 

The build.prop file is strongly linked to the upcoming Nexus Sailfish because one of the Nexus handsets HTC is creating is called S1.

The file confirmed earlier speculations that the Sailfish might come with a 5.2-inch display with 1920x1080 screen resolution. The file als indicated that the device will come with a powerful Snapdragon 820 processor as suggested by the “ARM64-V8a” and “msm8996” codes in the file. 

There are also entries within the build.prop file that pertain to a fingerprint scanner that will most likely be situated at the back of the handset.

The file surfaced just days after a photo of the Nexus Marlin was released online. 

The Nexus Marlin, also referred to as M1, is reportedly going to be the more premium counterpart of the HTC S1. The snap shows that the Marlin will come with the yet-to-be-released Android Nougat 7.0 right out of the box, according to Pocket-lint

The Nexus Marlin is the successor of the Nexus 6P, and it is expected to rock a 5.5-inch 2K AMOLED screen. Being the larger Nexus smartphone that will be released this year, the Marlin is rumored to come with a 3,450mAh battery, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and 4GB of RAM.

BGR has learned that the M1 will have a fingerprint sensor at the back, and in terms of camera technology, consumers can expect a 12-megapixel snapper at the back and an 8-megapixel shooter on the front.
