Google Nexus Prime: Samsung confirms new handset's name

Next-gen Android phone coming October

Will Google Nexus Prime come loaded with Android Ice Cream Sandwich?

Samsung appears to have unofficially confirmed the name of Google’s next flagship Android handset, the Nexus Prime. The name’s been bandied around for months, but now a User Agent Profile on Samsung’s website has slipped out the details.

Sadly, specs for the new device remain unclear, with the page currently acting as a placeholder, with the details of last year’s Nexus S copied in, rather than those of the Nexus Prime.

The Nexus Prime will have the model number GT-I9250. That should mean that gossip hounds will be able to unearth new details about the phone in the coming weeks.

With an October release expected, the Nexus Prime is likely to come loaded up with Android Ice Cream, making it the Big G’s best phone to date. For more on this and the rest of the day’s gadget news and gossip, stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter pages.
