Rumours around what could be the upcoming Google Nexus device have started up again today. Previous thoughts were that LG or HTC had been granted the rights to develop the next generation of Nexus Android, this was also once pegged with the name as the “Nexus 4G”. Today, BGR is reporting that Google and Samsung will be teaming up to create what might be called the “Google Nexus Prime” (that’s the internal code name at Google). According to the source, the Prime will come with a Texas Instruments OMAP 4460 dual-core processor, have “a monster 720p -resolution display” that’s named “Super AMOLED HD” and run the upcoming Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
Probably the most interesting part of the rumour, and what makes the LG and HTC rumour come to life, is how Google might release several higher end Google devices across various carriers at the same time. BGR noted that “Our source indicated that Google could be working with multiple carriers and multiple OEMs on their own “exclusive” Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) halo devices, and that they may all launch around the same time.
Another day, another rumour…
