Google’s Upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich Device Rumored to be Named Nexus Prime
Today, some more details were leaked regarding Google’s possible upcoming smartphone that will be the inaugural device for the iconic Android 4.0 (or Ice Cream Sandwich). About two weeks ago, we learned about the powerful specs the Nexus successor device was rumored to launch with, and today, we learned more about its name, Google’s launch strategy, and some more about the specs. So, without further ado, let’s get into it.
BGR has learned from its trusty source that the name for the upcoming Google device is tentatively the Google Nexus Prime. Based on the specs, the Nexus Prime would definitely make a nice addition to a Nexus lineup that features the likes of the Nexus One and the Nexus S. In addition, Google is said to be working with other device manufacturers such as LG, HTC, and Motorola to hopefully launch their own flagship devices with Ice Cream Sandwich at the same time Google launches the Nexus Prime. If many manufacturers launch a device with Ice Cream Sandwich, different carriers and different demographis would each be exposed to the latest Android OS simultaneously.
Google is said to be partnering with Samsung to create the Nexus Prime because the 720p resolution monster-sized screen is said to be Super AMOLED HD, and we all know who likes to toss around the phrase “Super AMOLED.” In addition, the processor is OMAP4460, which is a 1.5GHz dual-core processor that will be officially available Q3 of 2011.
As always, if we hear any more details regarding the Nexus Prime, we will definitely keep you updated. Based on what we have learned from today and two weeks ago, the Nexus Prime sounds like a great device for Google to market
