The next Google phone is in the works, and Samsung has the honours. The Google Nexus Prime is the big brother to the Nexus S - also a Samsung job - and big is right.
A tipster at the 4Chan forum saw the previously rumoured phone in the flesh, and posted about its 4.65-inch touch-screen, dual-core 1.5GHz chip with 1GB of RAM and 'blazingly fast' speed. Internal memory clocks in at 16GB with a microSD slot expandable by up to 32GB.
CNET reported that the anonymous source also posted details the phone's all-metal 8.8mm body and its OS - Android Ice Cream Sandwich, the upgrade meant to amalgate the phone and tablet versions of the OS.
The phone will be the first to show off this shiny new OS with purported features including more animations, app folders, previews of new widgets and refreshed Gmail, calendar and browser apps.
Like the Samsung Galaxy S II, the screen boasts a Super AMOLED Plus display and can show off high-def video up to 1280x720 pixels. Apparently a Samsung Galaxy S III is in the works, too, but the poster had no further details.
