Samsung in the US has been busy handing out invites for its next Samsung Unpacked event in San Diego. Due to take place in a couple of weeks time on the 11th of October, the event is being pitched as a ‘Google Episode’ and the logo features a little Android peeking out from inside a box.
This has fuelled speculation that the rumoured Nexus Prime phone, and therefore Ice Cream Sandwich, will be announced at the event.
The Google Nexus Prime is widely thought to be the first phone that will feature Ice Cream Sandwich, the next version of Android, and will act as a kind of flagship phone for the OS, as previous Nexus phones – the One and the S – have done.
Nothing about the elusive Nexus Prime has been officially revealed yet, but it’s thought to have a Super AMOLED HD screen (with a possible 1280×720 resolution) and a 1.5GHz dual-core chip, Texas Instrument’s OMAP 4460.
Recently, Bluetooth certification for the ‘GT-i9250’ – widely thought to be the codename for the Nexus Prime – has appeared, again stoking the rumour-fires and All Things D is reporting that Android head honcho Andy Rubin could be putting in an appearance as well. This seems to all but confirm that the event will indeed be the big reveal for the Nexus Prime and Ice Cream Sandwich.
Whatever will be shown off, the 11th of October looks to be a date worth pencilling in your Google Calendar.
