Google’s Nexus One may be the speed king of the smartphone hill at the moment, but alleged leaks are showing that a newer and even more powerful HTC smartphone may already be in the works.  The rumored HTC Scorpion (may be codenamed “Olympian”), is supposedly equipped with a 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor running Android 2.2.

A leaked build file from a mysterious device dubbed the HTC Scorpion has surfaced, but has not been validated yet.  If it’s true, then HTC’s all-new phone may be running Android 2.2 as well as have WiMax support, on top of a blazing 1.5Ghz Snapdragon processor.

We’ve located the alleged build file below, and highlighted the lines that hint at the rumored specs above.  Any thoughts?
