A few months ago there were rumours that Google was looking to HTC or LG for the next Nexus. Recently the search engine giant acquired Motorola, which raised more than a few eyebrows, but there’s one name that keeps cropping up.
That name of course is Samsung, the manufacturer behind the previous Google flagship – the curvaceous Google Nexus S (pictured).
A Samsung roadmap was recently leaked, and there are two high-specced contenders for the next Nexus. First there’s the GT-I9210, with a 4.5in Super AMOLED display, 16GB internal storage, and an 8MP/2MP camera combo.
However, the more likely chap is the GT-I9250, which is thought to have a 4.65in 1280x720 Super AMOLED display and 5MP camera. More importantly, it’s said to run Ice Cream Sandwich, making it the front-runner.
In any case, the Nexus Prime is expected to boast a 1.4GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor. Goodness.
The rumour mill can’t quite decide when the Nexus Prime will arrive, with various sites mentioning October, November and December. If it’s before Christmas, we’ll be happy.
