Needless to say, the device with the most rumours to its name at the moment is the iPhone 5. However, Apple’s new device is closely followed in the rumour mill rankings by the next forthcoming Google Phone. A couple of days ago, it seemed the name of this device had been confirmed as the Google/Samsung Nexus Prime. However, a new post over at TechCrunch this afternoon suggests that the Nexus Prime was in-fact the codename and that Google’s new baby will actually be called the Samsung Galaxy Prime. So at this stage it seems the only details that are certain are that the handset will be manufactured by Samsung and run Google Ice Cream Sandwich. It’s also likely that the model number will be GT-i9250 and launch October/November. Of course, there are a few suggestions floating around as to what some of the spec will be. These include:
- 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD display with 1280 x 800 resolution (like the Galaxy Note)
- Contoured display (like the Nexus S)
- 8.8mm Thick
- Entirely Metal Chassis
- 1.5GHz Processor
We’ll keep you updated with any confirmations, including UK pricing and availability when available.
