Google Nexus Prime with Ice Cream Sandwich to come in October

Back in June, we reported on the Google Nexus Prime and how this third iteration in the Nexus line would bring several quantum leaps to the Android ecosystem. Now, many of those rumors are getting substantiated and backed up by way of a new report from Electronic Times of Korea.

The report echoes what we had heard before. The Google Nexus Prime will be the first Android smartphone to run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (sometimes referred to as 2.4), a blended OS that’s supposed to bridge the gap between smartphone (currently up to 2.3 Gingerbread) and tablet (currently up to 3.2 Honeycomb). The report also confirms the presence of a super speedy 1.5GHz processor, possibly by way of Qualcomm.

And this is going to be superphone-sized with its 4.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED HD display with a PenTile layout. With such a large screen, high resolution, and high-speed processor, you’ve got to have a concern or two about battery. Given the Super AMOLED, it’s safe to assume that this is going to be Samsung-produced device, much like the current Nexus S. I guess it won’t be until the fourth Nexus that we’ll see a Motorola-sourced smartphone bearing the “official Google phone” moniker.

Look for the Nexus Prime this October, alongside that other phone from that other guy.
