Samsung is holding a special event later this week where they are expected to unveil the next generation Google Nexus smartphone, which has been listed under a few different names so far, the Google Nexus Prime and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
The listings so far for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus appear to have bee related to Verizon Wireless, and now the Nexus Prime has appeared on RadioShack’s Cellebrite system, so there is still some confusion on what the device’s actual name will be when it launches later this week.
What we have heard so far is that the Google Nexus Prime will come with Android Ice Cream Sandwich, plus a 4.65 inch Super AMOLED HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, and the display is said to feature curved glass.
Other specifications on the Google Nexus Prime include a TI OMAP 4460 dual core Cortex A9 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of built in storage and a microSD card slot.
The Google Nexus Prime will also come with the advanced 5 megapixel camera that we heard about previously and the camera will be capable of recording Full HD video in 1080p.
There will also be a front facing 1.3 megapixel camera, and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will also feature LTE/HSPA support, NFC, plus 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth, plus it will come with a 1,750 mAh battery, we should have the official specifications later this week.
