Purported specifications for the upcoming Samsung-made Google branded ‘Nexus Prime’ have appeared, suggesting that the phone will indeed carry the 4.65-inch 1280 x 720 OLED display from the Samsung Galaxy S2 HD LTE.
Quoting a ‘trusted source’, BGR said that the phone would be just 9mm thick and be based on the upcoming Android Ice Cream Sandwich which BGR also suggested would be called Android 4.0.
A surprise in the new configuration list comes from the TI OMAP 4460 dual-core Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, rather than Samsung’s own Exynos 4210 system-on-chip from the current Samsung Galaxy S2. Samsung had also announced an updated 1.5GHz Exynos 4212 which will arrive sometime in 2012.
Backing up previous leaked specifications, BGR said the phone will offer 1GB of RAM, contain NFC (which would make sense since the Nexus S does) and carry a surprisingly (for Samsung) decent capacity 1750mAh battery. .
BGR also said the device would be a "pure Google Experience" free of Samsung’s UI modifications such as TouchWiz, again not really a surprise since the Nexus-branded phones are supposed to represent a reference implementation of Google’s Android OS.
