Samsung might have accidentally confirmed the next smartphone they are making for Google, called the Nexus Prime. The company has uploaded the device’s User Agent Profile file with the name “Nexus Prime” written on it. The page also confirms that the Nexus Prime will be using the GT-I9250 technical device name.

Reports say that the Google Nexus Prime is currently in the process of getting both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi certifications, which means that Samsung or Google might officially release the device soon. Google might be rushing the Nexus Prime’s launch in order to compete with Apple’s new iPhone 5, which is expected to be released this October. It was reported, however, that the GT-I9250 will be launched between November 29 and December 4 this year.

According to the User Agent Profile, the Nexus Prime will only have a disappointing 800 x 480 WVGA resolution, instead of the 1280 x 720 pixels that was rumored back then. The 800 x 480 resolution is what every decent Android-powered smartphone uses for almost 2 years now.

The User Agent Profile also claims that the new Google smartphone has an ARM11 processor, and it was revealed that the maximum resolution of MMS images is 1200 x 1600. This led some reports to believe that it is possible that the information given in the document was falsified by Samsung, as the maximum MMS image resolution is usually the same as the resolution of the main camera, and we are certain that the Nexus Prime will be able to capture photos bigger than just 2 megapixels.

The next “Google Phone,” called the Nexus Prime, and will be manufactured by Samsung. It will be released with the Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android and will be released soon.
