There have been a wide range of rumors regarding the release of a new Nexus handset and, while all of them should be put to rest as soon as next week, when the smartphone is expected to be made official, a new photo with the phone appears to have just emerged, along with a short video preview.
Update: Screenshots with the new Ice Cream Sandwich platform have been added to the article.
The next Google phone is expected to become available with the upcoming Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system on board.
The forthcoming device has leaked on Romanian site mobilissimo.ro, where some of its hardware specs were confirmed as well.
The new mobile phone is said to have been manufactured by Samsung and to arrive on shelves under the name of Samsung Nexus Prime.
Some of the previous rumors on it suggested that it would be on its way to the US market exclusively on the airwaves of Verizon Wireless, and that it will be called Samsung Galaxy Nexus there.
One way or the other, it appears that this might be one and the same device, sporting a 1,750 mAh battery inside, and a 5-megapixel photo snapper on the back.
The handset is said to pack a plastic cover, but the brown shades it sports will make you think it is metal.
The anonymous source that provided these details on the new Nexus smartphone also said that the Ice Cream Sandwich OS flavor looks and feels great.
In the video embedded below, you can have a taste of it, but all the goodies it will bring to devices will be unveiled only after the official launch of Nexus Prime.
Overall, the new smartphone is said to have been created to impress, and that it will certainly manage to do so when put up for sale. Details on when that might happen have not emerged for the time being, nor on the price tag it would feature when released, so stay tuned.
The video with Nexus Prime was already removed, which confirms that the leak was real. However, the clip emerged on YouTube as well, and can be seen below.
