Samsung Nexus Prime Support Page Surfaces; Google Android Ice Cream Sandwich Smartphone to Arrive this October

September 12, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We have been hearing a lot about Samsung’s upcoming smartphone called the Nexus Prime. The handset, said to come powered by Google’s latest OS Android 4.0, is again in the news as part of the run up to a roll out date. If you remember, we had sometime ago spotted the device carrying the model number GT-I9250 with a Wi-Fi certification. The latest is that a support page for the GTI9250 has come up on the Samsung website. The funny part is that the page is almost blank. Also, a leak has brought to the fore a few specs of  the phone.

If you head for the page here, you will be able to see tabs that have Downloads, FAQs, How-to Guides, and Troubleshooting features. In case you are looking for some details on the phone, let us tell you there’s nothing about the device on the page you are looking at.

Leaked specs of the phone have revealed a 4.65-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720. The device would come with a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, 1GB RAM and 5-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording.

We just hope the Super AMOLED technology will be integrated with the display as Samsung has been offering that in their latest devices. The 8.8mm thin handset enclosed in a metal chassis is likely to come with the curved display – something akin to what its predecessor, the Nexus S, had come with.

It is believed that Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich OS will be rolled out in October. Chances are that the Nexus Prime would come powered by the new version of the OS.

In addition, the rumored specs and the latest blank page of the smartphone hint that we can expect a soon release of the Nexus Prime during the same month.

However, we are yet to zero in on which carrier the device would arrive on. Though rumors suggest Verizon could be the hot favorite, we have yet to confirm that.

It looks like the scene might turn interesting, as the Apple iPhone5 and the Nokia Windows Phone are slated for debut around the same time. Stay tuned.
