Leaked Samsung Roadmap Reveals Nexus Prime Launch Date, 720p Super AMOLED Display
A new leaked Samsung product roadmap may have revealed a Nexus Prime, along with several other noteworthy Android smartphones, and specs of the Android Ice Cream Sandwich bearing Google phone. According to GSM Arena, an Ice Cream Sandwich-packing Nexus Prime should launch on week 48 of 2011, with a rather large 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD Plus display. Here are the leaked specs for the device:
4.65″ SuperAMOLED of HD resolution (1280×720 pixels), Android Ice Cream sandwich, 5 MP camera.
We’ve been hearing a lot of rumors out of the Samsung camp recently, including a leaked teaser video for the IFA trade show in Germany, along with a possible October launch date for Ice Cream Sandwich, which would squarely put Android’s next generation operating system against the launch of Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 Mango devices and Apple’s iPhone 5 with iOS 5. As Ice Cream Sandwich is supposed to unite smartphone and Honeycomb tablet OSes into one, there has been a lot of excitement behind this OS.
Additionally, at the same time–week 48–as the Nexus Prime launch, it appears that a device with a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED display will also launch, possibly being the recently leaked Samsung Celox, which would come with 4G LTE.
There’s also mention of a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED HD display device as well, which would launch with Gingerbread, dual-core 1.4 GHz CPU, and an 8-megapixel rear camera. That device will be coming in week 43, ahead of the launch of the Nexus Prime. The leaked roadmap also points to other Samsung devices, including a 7-inch Galaxy Tab with the same 1024 X 600 resolution as the Tab that was launched in the same display size as before, but would be utilize Super AMOLED display technology. The new device would come in WiFi-only version and one with built-in mobile broadband and will come with Android Honeycomb, presumably Android 3.2.
