The next Nexus pure-Google smartphone has been rumored to be made by Samsung and called the Nexus Prime. Samsung Romania Twitter account supposedly leaked details of the next Nexus to have a Super AMOLED (1280 x 720) touchscreen and Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
The Tweets were later removed, and Samsung reps reported that the original information came from an outside source. Then bloggers claimed that the information came originally from them.
The information was originally published on Ziarul Financiar and has since been removed.
Other leaked specs suggest that the Nexus Prime will have a dual-core OMAP4460 (1.5GHz) processor, a 720 HD "monster-sized" Super AMOLED touchscreen, 1GB of RAM, 1080p HD video capture and playback, a 1-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 5-megapixel rear camera. It supposedly will be without hard buttons for navigation.
These specs are slightly more powerful than the Samsung Galaxy S II that has a 1.22GHz Samsung Exynos 4210 dual-core processor.
The nice thing about the pure Google experience is that updates are pushed very quickly. Original Samsung Galaxy S owners had to wait several months for the update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
The current Nexus S was the first smartphone to have Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and the next Nexus Prime will be the first to get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
