Google Nexus Prime with Android 4.0, to be Launched in October?
Korean report: Google Nexus Prime, arriving this October.
According to a report from BGR, the Nexus Prime – Google’s anticipated 4G smartphone with Android 4.0 – will be hitting the store shelves sometime in October 2011. Sources have confirmed that the original report came from Electronic Times, a Korean site which also disclosed some of the handset’s technical specifications.
Electronic Times has unveiled that Google’s Nexus Prime is the first smartphone to be equipped with the Android 4.0 operating system, or also known as “Ice Cream Sandwich”. Having Samsung as its manufacturer, Google’s third Nexus flagship Android phone will be sporting a 4.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED HD display, a 1.5 gigahertz CPU, and a TI OMAP 4460.
These specs have not yet been confirmed by the manufacturer. However, there are still rumors claiming that Nexus Prime will be featuring a 4G radio, and a NFC radio which is already present in other high-end Android smartphones to date.
If this report is true, then it means that Samsung will be likely to launch two new Android smartphones this year. The first one is its anticipated Galaxy S II, which is set to hit the shelves on August 29; and the other one is the Google Nexus Prime that is targeting an October release.View Article Source »
