Google Nexus Prime detailed

Details of the new Google Nexus phone first broke earlier this month. Now we have some more, including a name for it. That name is the Google Nexus Prime.

Once again, the detail have come from the BGR site, with its sources claiming the new phone will be manufactured by Samsung and will pack a super AMOLED HD screen without any physical navigation keys, as we mentioned last time.

The processor has been confirmed as a dual-core 1.2GHz/1.5GHz OMAP 4460 and the cameras look to be the same – a five-megapixel camera with 'class-leading image quality in addition to superior low light performance' along with 1080p HD video capture, plus a one-megapixel front-facing camera. As you would expect, the phone will arrive without any pre-loads or customisation, but it might not be alone in offering the all-new Google Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

The site claims Google could be working with other manufacturers for a wider launch of phones with that new OS, which could mean devices from the likes of Motorola, HTC, and LG landing at roughly the same time for a huge market onslaught of Ice Cream Sandwich, presumably before Christmas. Interesting stuff. If you have an upgrade due at the end of the year, you might want to hold back a little while before signing a new contract.
