Samsung has inadvertently confirmed that they will be making the next Nexus phone for Google. Actually, the lawyers of the company recently issued a ‘Cease and Desist’ notice to prevent anyone with information about the phone from leaking to the public — thus confirming that Samsung is making the handset.
Nexus phones are also called Google phones, and they feature the pure form of Android operating system without any third party modifications. The next Nexus will be called Nexus Prime. At least that is what the Cease and Desist notice calls the phone, as confirmed by Geek.com which has screen shot of the notice. However, this could just be a code name of the phone.
Earlier two Nexus phones – called Nexus One and Nexus S – were made by HTC and Samsung respectively and rumour mill was rife with speculation that the third one will be made by LG, which will now be put to rest with this report.
Next round of speculations and rumours are expected to be about the specifications of the phone. Only thing that is almost certain is the inclusion of Ice Cream Sandwich version of Andorid (Android 4.0) on the phone.
Its screen size, as speculated, could be anything in between 4 inch to 5.2 inch. Samsung might include its Super Amoled HD screen in the phone. Nexus Prime may come with a 1.5 GHz Texus instrument processor or Samsung’s own Dual core unit.
There are also rumours floating around about the inclusion of Android @ Home (a system for tying together home devices via Google-authored protocols and APIs), Facial recognition software, or Qi inductive charging (Wireless charging). Anyhow, it is not much of a waiting as the phone is due in next couple of months when we will get all the details and a mind boggling price as well (if all the rumoured specs come true, it sure will have a pocketing burning price).
