This Google Nexus Prime might be next
There’s this rumor about the next Android Nexus phone that will be released next quarter by Google and they’re naming it the Nexus Prime. The specs are drool-worthy so it definitely attracted a lot of speculative attention.
Samsung Nexus S
The name Google Nexus Prime sounds believable but I thought the name feels like it’s been timed with the showing of Transformers 3. Besides the term “Prime” does not reflect a 3rd-generation Nexus handset.
Well, Samsung was able to convince Google to name their co-branded handset to Nexus S instead of Nexus Two so it’s possible that this time, Samsung (who is rumored to be the partner for this new project) might have a hand with the naming.
But here are some more details — 720p-resolution display (1280×720 pixels) with a Super AMOLED HD, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and a TI OMAP4460 processor (which is a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore 1.5Ghz and PowerVR SGX540).
If Samsung is the partner, then they should be using a dual-core Orion ARM Cortex-A9 chip with quad-core MALI 400 GPU.
