Samsung Romania may have unwittingly confirmed Google Nexus Prime rumors
Did Samsung just out itself with regards to the rumored Google Nexus Prime NFC phone? It may well have on its Romanian Twitter feed, what seemingly confirms the existence of the Nexus Prime NFC beast. Oh, how we love sharp eyed reporters and PR faux-pas early in the morning! The Romanian paper, Ziarul Financiar recently mirrored trusted rumors that BGR had received and the Samsung Romania PR team tweeted the article on Twitter. Why would they do that if there was no truth in the rumor? Ha! Caught red-handed. Whether or not this is a misstep, it appears to the outside world to confirm the rumor. The Google Nexus Prime tweets have since been removed but we have a screenshot below for your viewing pleasure.
Google Nexus Prime Rumors
Rumors have been circulating about Google and Samsung producing a super NFC phone for about a month now with a surprising amount of detail about the specifications of the said device. Although that said, rumors haven’t been completely rock solid thus far with the name of this upcoming phone changing from Nexus 4G to Nexus Prime within the space of a couple of weeks. What we can probably take as red at this point is that Google and Samsung are working on a new device with high specifications. It’s been a while since the two companies launched the Nexus S. Whereas the S is still a very capable device and is currently the only phone on the US market with an NFC chip and a secure element, with the prospect of the iPhone 5 hitting the market in September it will shock no one to hear that Android needs some new champions to compete.
Rumored specifications of the Google Nexus Prime
The rumored Google Nexus Prime is said to be another Google/ Samsung partnership that will offer the next iteration of a pure Google experience that rocks on Android 4.0, or as it is more commonly known, Ice Cream Sandwich. It is said to run on an OMAP4460 next-generation dual-core 1.2GHz or 1.5GHz CPU for its processing power. We had also learned that it would feature a display described to be a 720p HD “monster-sized” screen. The Google Nexus Prime is also rumored to feature HD video recording and playback at 1080p, and the camera is said to be an advanced 5-megapixel sensor delivering class-leading image quality in addition to superior low-light performance. The rear camera is reported to be backed up by a 1 mega pixel camera up front, and of course, a phone of this magnitude will rock on LTE.
Although the Nexus prime is rumored to hit the market in the fall, we don’t know exactly when, on which network or for how much. Let’s just hope a Samsung PR person takes pity on us in another country and tweets those details. We will keep you updated as more unfolds about the Google Nexus Prime.
