Following the Apple iPhone 4S launch attention was set to turn to the launch of the Google Nexus Prime and Android Ice Cream Sandwich before Samsung and Google cancelled the event

Samsung and Google have confirmed that the eagerly awaited Samsung Mobile Unpacked event that was set to play host to the Google Nexus Prime launch and Android Ice Cream Sandwich unveiling has been cancelled.

Set to be held in San Diego on Tuesday October 11th, a statement from the two companies has confirmed that the next-generation Android mobile operating system has been put on hold as “it is just not the right time.”

“Samsung and Google decide to postpone the new product announcement at CTIA Fall,” a spokesperson for Samsung told T3. “We agree that it is just not the right time to announce a new product. New date and venue will be shortly announced.”

Google Nexus Prime Specs

Set to follow the arrival of the Apple iPhone 4S the long rumoured Samsung manufactured Google Nexus Prime is to land with a bevy of high-end specs with a monstrous 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD display to boast a 1280 x 720p resolution.

Further Google Nexus Prime specs will see the handset feature a 1.5GHz dual-core processor alongside an optimised 5-megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities and a minimalist 9mm thick form factor.
