RUMOR: Ice Cream Sandwich Flagship to be Google Nexus Prime?


Take this one with a grain of salt guys, but BGR is reporting that the “Android 4.0” Ice Cream Sandwich flagship device will be named the ‘Google Nexus Prime’.

They claim to have a source telling them that the device will sport a Super AMOLED HD display, and we all know what company uses those. That’s right, Samsung is rumored to be the manufacturer of this new Nexus device.

BGR is also reporting that this Nexus device won’t be the only flagship 4.0 device, with other devices from HTC, LG and Motorola, all coming at pretty much the same time. This would give credence to the other rumor of HTC and LG both working on Nexus devices (except they may not have the Nexus branding). BGR also mentioned that they will all be released on multiple carriers.

I just want to state again that this is a rumor only! Only parts of this could be true, or even none of it. Having said that, let us know what you think in the comments below. If this device comes to fruition, would you be interested? Is there anyone out there who has had the Nexus One and/or Nexus S and will be getting the successor no matter how it turns out?  You can also sound off over on our Facebook Wall!

    I have both generations of Google’s dev phone and i’m sure to get the 3rd!! Can’t wait!!

    Ahh, from good ol’ reliable BGR. I think I’ll wait this one out. While the Nexus will be my next phone, I’m having a hard time believing anything those guys say anymore. So many inconsistencies in their stories. If Samsung is tapped to manufacturer a phone, I highly down they’ll use all their own parts except a processor and go back to TI’s OMAP.

    Good ole Nexus One is running low on storage space. Hoping the name Nexus Prime sticks :]

  • suh-weeeet!  but i say that half-heartedly as i realize every brand spankin’ new phone i get is old news almost the day after it comes out… it’s funny how us android peeps covet the future phones soooo much that we forget about the awesome phone in our hands that we pined for months before IT came out… that may be the only thing apple iFruit people have on us.. apple doesnt release a new device/os but every 6 months or so… so they have been trained to be patient and wait for the almighty jobs deems them worthy enough to have the next device… us? we get envy every 8 and 1/2 minutes!! ughh.. i wish my phone would be cool enough to last at least till im eligible for another upgrade! lol…

    i think it’s stupid that just because it may be known that the screen will have a “Super AMOLED HD” display it’s assumed the whole device will be the manufactured by Samsung.
