Google is about to launch the next flagship Android phone Nexus Prime, the first official phone running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update, alternately called the Google Nexus Prime or Samsung Droid Prime. The Nexus prime is expected to be manufactured by Samsung and is the second Android flagship made by Samsung, after the Google Nexus S. The original Google Nexus One was made by HTC.
We already knew that Nexus Prime would be first carried by U.S telco operator Verizon in late October or early November, and now a tweet by Tom Fleming of Panda Nation revealed November 3 as the release date for the Nexus Prime: “Fore on the date Bruce Wayne’s true father did die; you shall in fact be able to buy [the Nexus Prime] in stores of red and black”. However, neither Google nor Samsung, has officially revealed any specific date for launching or releasing the Nexus Prime.
As for the phone itself, Here are the pertinent particulars:
- a Dual-core Samsung Exynos CPU at 1.5 GHz with 1GB RAM
- 4.65-inches, 1280 x 720 HD display: Super AMOLED Plus
- 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras with 100p HD recording
- a slimmer design of 8.8 mm, somewhat heavier than the Galaxy S II
- 16GB internal storage + SD card slot
- 2000 mAh battery
- With a metal body, it’s reportedly quite weighty at around 130g (possibly)
- The support for 4G LTE (possibly)
Updated: Google co-hosted with Samsung are going to launch the next major iteration of Android OS, i.e. Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The much anticipated Google Android smartphones ‘Google Nexus’ or ‘Nexus Prime’ (now officially the Galaxy Nexus) might also be officially unveiled at this event.
