Samsung looks set to reassume manufacturing detail for the next Google Nexus branded handset, reports suggest, amid the emergence of further specs for the search giant’s third foray into smartphones.
Last month, Boy Genius Report (BGR) and Tech Hog uncovered the existence of the phone it [at the time provisionally dubbed the 'Nexus3'.
According to the initial article, the handset, which was purportedly leaked by an insider, dispenses with a trad-dad physical buttons in favour of a “monster-sized” display and all-touchscreen UI, and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.
Today, BGR’s source has talked some more. It’s now emerged that the handset’s new working title is the less snappy but infinitely more imaginative ‘Google Nexus Prime’.
More revealing still, however, is that the display will be branded 'Super AMOLED HD' – a screen technology that’s featured prominently in Samsung’s highest-end Galaxy phones, albeit sans the 'HD' part.
Not unreasonably then, it’s being surmised that Samsung, which manufactured the current-gen Nexus S for Google, is once again being enlisted for the successor.
Other specs mooted for the device include dual snappers, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) in its unadulterated, skin-less form and an OMAP4460 processor to keep everything running super smoothly.
