News surfaced a while back that Google is working on a new Nexus phone. Now, according to reports, Google’s first phone that will run the Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS will be called ‘Nexus Prime,’ and will be manufactured by Samsung, kind of sounds like a Transformers robot – which is obviously cool.

According to reports, the display will feature a Super AMOLED HD display, with a 720p resolution. The Nexus Prime is said to have a dual-core 1.2 GHz or 1.5 GHz OMAP 4460 processor.

Google’s Nexus Prime will launch with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS and will have 1GB of RAM, a five-megapixel camera that will allow users to record 1080p full-HD videos.

It is possible that other smartphone manufacturers are involved in making their own Ice Cream Sandwich phones. There are no additional details regarding the Nexus Prime, so we’ll have to wait for more news. On the face of it, this latest handset looks to be better than any other Android handset and will become the flagship handset that Apple will want to beat when they launch their iPhone 5 later this year.

Many feel that the Nexus Prime and iPhone 5 will launch mere weeks apart, with Apple releasing the iPhone 5 toward the start of September. Either way, smartphone specs are hotting up with PC power coming to your pocket, is it just a matter of time until everyones computing power is carried around with them?
