Samsung Allegedly The Manufacturer For The Nexus ‘Prime’

BGR are again quoting sources with info about Google’s upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich (that’s Android 4.0 to you and me) flagship. BGR had previously reported this new Nexus device as having a “monster” display with 720p resolution, a 5 megapixel camera of supposedly astounding quality and a 1.2 or 1.5GHz Dual Core CPU.

Now, BGR are saying that Samsung have been pegged as the manufacturers using a Texas Instruments OMAP 4460, pure Android 4.0 and a Super AMOLED HD display, whatever that is. Google are allegedly using the ‘Prime’ code name internally, and BGR’s source says that the name might stick to retail.

Now, I personally am not too happy about Samsung making the device. I believe that the Nexus One had was of better build than the Nexus S, and HTC are trusted more by Android’s fans than Samsung. But it’s easy to see why Google would go for Samsung as their OEM. Firstly, their hardware is indeed out of this world, with their Super AMOLED technology blowing the competition out of the water. Their silicon chips are also great, delivering blistering performance regardless of clock speed, with the Galaxy S and the Galaxy SII being a case in point. Some would also argue that the Nexus S sold much better than the Nexus One, which it really did, making it better for Google to stick with the manufacturer. But then again, the Nexus One was the victim of Google’s experiment with retail, bypassing carriers in the US in favour of an online store, something that really did not go down well with the average consumer.

Will Samsung truly be the OEM? Will the ‘Prime’ have a Super AMOLED HD display? Only time, and Google, will tell.
