Samsung to produce Google’s flagship Android device – Nexus Prime

Almost two weeks ago, rumors regarding Google’s flagship handset were surfacing that it was going to be button-less. Well this week, in addition to this and thanks again to BGR, we’ve got a potential name and manufacturer for this device, Google’s Nexus Prime from Samsung.

Samsung and Google already have great partnership and experience, just think about the current Nexus also made from Samsung. The reason why it was hinted that Samsung will be Google’s partner again is because the Nexus Prime will have a Super AMOLED HD Screen. That means a crisp clear 720p resolution display in the palm of your hand.


The processor will be the OMAP4460 from Texas Instrument, which really means a 1.5 GHz Dual-Core ARM Cortex-A9 processor. This is the same one used by Archos for its upcoming Android tablet the Archos 80 G9 and the Archos 101 G9.

The OS for this Google phone is Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Google is reportedly working with other manufacturers such as HTC, LG and Motorola to launch their Ice Cream Sandwich flagship device all at the same time. This would mean a huge invasion of Android devices running the latest OS with generally speaking great specs.

Marketing strategy? Definitely, as Apple will possibly release the Iphone 5 this fall also. The Ice Cream Sandwich Android invasion will not eliminite the great Apple, but should this simultaneous release occurs, these Android devices will certainly take a huge bite out of the apple.
