The upcoming Nexus Prime smartphone, Google's third self-branded Android device, will be out in October, according to a new report from BGR. It cites Korea's Electronic Times as the original source, and confirms earlier specs that include a 4.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED HD display and a 1.5GHz CPU, likely a TI OMAP 4460. The handset will be manufactured by Samsung.
While this isn't confirmed, earlier reports had the smartphone sporting a 4G radio as well. An NFC radio, which is already standard in some high-end Android devices, is also likely to be included. The smartphone should be the first and therefore reference Android 4.0 design, just as the Google Nexus One was the original Android 2.1 phone.
