I cannot find a reference to the "build.prop" file in the Android documentation but google answers at the question ' what is "build.prop"':

    The “build.prop” file is a system file that exists on every Android device. The file contains build information and other system properties which are used throughout the operating system.

and stackoverflow is thriving with questions on how to edit this file.

The file contains part of the information returned by the getprop command and all the information we are needing here.

Here is its content and access rights on an android-24-x86_64 emulator:

generic_x86_64:/data/local/tmp/python $ ls -al /system/build.prop
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2083 2017-07-12 22:01 /system/build.prop
generic_x86_64:/data/local/tmp/python $ cat /system/build.prop
