Samsung Nexus Prime reportedly detailed: Verizon LTE

The Samsung Nexus Prime, aka the Galaxy Nexus expected to be revealed at the company's event next Tuesday, has apparently been detailed as an Ice Cream Sandwich Verizon exclusive. The 9mm-thick device will have a 4.65-inch 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED HD curved glass display, BGR's source tells them, but rather than one of Samsung's own Exynos processors will instead run Texas Instrument's 1.2GHz OMAP 4460 dual-core Cortex A9 paired with 1GB of RAM.

Live pics of Samsung Nexus Prime leak

Live pics of Samsung Nexus Prime leak

Last week we saw some conceptual renderings of the Samsung Nexus Prime smartphone and the device looked really cool. Today with all the hubbub centering on the iPhone event, someone has decided it is a good time to leak the first live shots we have seen of an actual Nexus Prime in the hands of a geek. The screen looks to be very crisp and clear. The Samsung smartphone is expected to break cover next week at the Samsung Unpacked Event.

Verizon Nexus Prime app list leaked

Verizon Nexus Prime app list leaked

Let me stop you right there and stomp on your foot a little bit with this one with a stern warning: any site that only has one entry in a section, like the source for this story, should be treated as suspect - that said, this list seems fairly possible. The list I speak of is an app list for what appears to be the Verizon version of the Nexus Prime, a mythical device that's supposed to be coming out soon via Samsung to be the hero phone for Google's Ice Cream Sandwich OS update. What you'll find here, again if you believe it's real, is a list of apps that contains no bloat.

Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2011 Google Episode announced for CTIA

Samsung has announced their next Unpacked event, this one set to take place at the Autumn edition of CTIA and officially presented together with Google. This is Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2011 "Google Episode" and it seems pretty likely that it'll taste distinctly like vanilla ice cream. Ice Cream Sandwich, that is; the next big version of Android set, quite likely, to be hosted on a Samsung device by the name of Nexus Prime. Sound like a likely scenario to you?

Nexus Prime Bluetooth certification revealed

Nexus Prime Bluetooth certification revealed

It appears that the Samsung device by the name of Nexus Prime has seen its way to Bluetooth certification, this being one of the last steps, FCC certification as well as an actual official word from the manufacturer being next, before an actual release of the device to the public. This Bluetooth certification is but one of many puzzle pieces we've all been putting together on the puzzle that is the hero phone for Android's next big version, Ice Cream Sandwich. One way or another there's going to be a phone here, ladies or gentlemen, and we've gotta find it!

Google’s Next Nexus Phone Details Roundup [Mid-Sept 2011, pre-release]

Google’s Next Nexus Phone Details Roundup [Mid-Sept 2011, pre-release]

Each time Google creates a new version of Android, they work with a manufacturer of smartphones or tablets as well as a processor manufacturer to create a hero device to host a completely vanilla (otherwise known as totally nude, clean) version of their software. The most recent examples of this come in the Nexus S, out for sale now on three carriers across the USA working with Google's latest smartphone OS, Android 2.3 Gingerbread. For tablets, there's the Motorola XOOM, available as both a Wi-fi only device and a Verizon-carried device featuring Google's latest tablet-based mobile OS, Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Though the XOOM isn't technically following the naming scheme, each Google Android hero phone is part of the "Nexus" line, the next of these set to feature the Android system to tie handsets and tablets together in one: Ice Cream Sandwich. While we still do not know the Android number (2.4 or 4.0), we have a collection of details on this device that's sure to get you salivating.

Android Ice Cream Sandwich Pegged for October by manufacturer

Android Ice Cream Sandwich Pegged for October by manufacturer

It appears that the people behind the long-silent Notion Ink group have come back from the dead to note that they'd not only be adding Ice Cream Sandwich to their Android tablet "Adam", they'd be doing so in November, right after the launch date of the platform which is, they say, late October. Now it's not too much of a stretch to think that the author of this news release, Rohan Shravan, has just been reading Android blogs for the past few weeks and is just guessing that the rumors are true, but there is a point to consider: he's been right before. On the other hand, he's been terribly unreliable before as well.

Android Jelly Bean to follow Ice Cream Sandwich

Android Jelly Bean to follow Ice Cream Sandwich

In what can only be described as totally making alphabetical sense, J for Jelly Bean will follow I for Ice Cream in Google's mobile operating system line we're hearing today. This information comes from a tip given to ThisIsMyNext's Chris Ziegler and without a doubt is one of the most sparse tips we've published all week, this right next to the Nexus Prime (or whatever you want to call it by the time it's released) carrying what we expect will be Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. What Jelly Bean will hold for Android will likely be improvements over the Ice Cream Sandwich platform which is set to unite the two factions of Android, that being tablet and smartphone, in the coming months. Android Jelly Bean, coming up next!

Nexus Prime Chassis Specs Reported, Support Page up at Samsung

Nexus Prime Chassis Specs Reported, Support Page up at Samsung

It appears that rumors and confirmations are coming on the daily here on the upcoming Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device known thus far as the Nexus Prime. We've heard it called the Nexus Prime, the DROID Prime, codename GT-I9250, and today a new name: Samsung Galaxy Nexus. This comes from a tipster that's also revealed the fact that Samsung now has a support page up for the soon to be live device, though this support page is nothing if not incomplete to say the least, showing only the device code and a bunch of placeholder links on all sides. The real juicy bits come from a tipster who notes that this new device is likely to be 8.8mm thin with a full metal chassis.
