Yes, it is pretty much set in stone. The next Nexus phone will come from Samsung. Clearly Google thinks Samsung has done a good job with the Nexus S, which to us, was just an overpriced, re-branded Samsung Galaxy S.
But that all doesn’t matter now. A new Nexus is coming and Samsung will be making it and it has a very cool name. The Nexus Prime.
At the moment it looks like only the name of the new Nexus device has been confirmed. Other details are scarce, including launch date (expect sometime around October) and pricing but expect the latest version of the Android OS — Ice Cream Sandwich — to make its debut in the new Nexus phone. Other than that we’re thinking a high-definition display is definitely possible, so it a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. Also, NFC is a given we would think.
What else could the new Nexus be packing? glasses-free 3D and stereoscopic camera perhaps? Highly unlikely we think but who knows.
