The upcoming Samsung Google Nexus Prime handset will come with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, according to an exclusive video received by The Mobile Indian from one of its sources. The smartphone is set to be unveiled in a couple of days at the Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2011 event to be held in San Diego, USA from October 11.
Sources have said to The Mobile Indian that the device will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) has the interface that reflects mixture of Honeycomb and Gingerbread. The menu has two major columns — Apps and Widgets. Clearly, the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will be have more widgets support than the predecessors.
Lockscreen of the Android 4.0 ICS has been revamped and now will carry a short cut to camera — just like the one iOS 5 will bring for the iOS devices. Take a look at the few screenshots of Android 4.0 ICS and the bit out of focus video below.
The Google Nexus Prime is being manufactured by Samsung. It carries codenamed Tuna and has GT-I9250 as its model number as reported number of times previously.
Samsung Google Nexus ‘Prime’ GT-I9250 will expected to sport a massive 4.65 inch Super Amoled Plus HD Contour display with 1280×720 native resolution.
Earlier also, Samsung had released a teaser of Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2011 event. From the video also one can make out that the display is curved and the profile of the Google Nexus is super slim.
Reportedly, the Nexus Prime will house a dual-core 1.2 Ghz TI OMAP 4460 mobile processor coupled with PowerVR SGX540 graphics and 1 GB RAM. This device will debut the most awaited Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update as well.
At the back, this smartphone will have a 5 megapixel camera capable of recording 1080p HD video and a 1.3 megapixel camera in the front for video chat. The hardware is capable enough for 1080p HD video playback and 1080p Stereoscopic 3D gaming.
For wireless connectivity, the smartphone will support HSPA+/LTE based on the carrier and of course, WiFi (802.11 a/b/g/n) support. Google Nexus Prime will also feature Near Field Communication chip and most likely will become de-facto in all major high-end Android smartphones.
Noteworthy part of the Google Nexus Prime details is the 1750 mAh battery pack that is expected to power the massive 4.65 inch device which would be good enough for a user to enjoy it an entire day. Google Android based devices suffer from the inconsistent battery life based issues and hopes rest on Ice Sandwich to bring some stability on power management.
