We're as skeptical of oddly-specific rumors as the next blog, but given the source, we feel it'd be negligent of us not to pass on this information to you. A couple weeks back, we reported on a BGR-exclusive story that leaked information about the next Google Nexus Android phone.
Now, "Prime" is rumored to be the device codename being tossed around at the Googleplex for the upcoming handset, but BGR's exclusive source has reason to believe that name will make it to end consumers. There's also the fact that this name has been bandied about before and bears a certain pop culture reference - so we're not exactly sure how legit it is, or if it's just an affectionate/humorous pet name until the device gets a real label.
Additionally, the source has confirmed that the next Nexus phone will be packing a TI OMAP 4460 dual-core processor - a beefed-up version of the one you'll find in the upcoming DROID 3. As for the whole Samsung thing, BGR's source claims the phone's "monster" 720p display is utilizing a technology called Super AMOLED HD - clearly a Samsung product.
But this doesn't actually confirm that Samsung is building it, merely that their display technology will be the phone's pixel-powered canvas of choice. A recent AMOLED shortage has caused the many-lettered technology to be practically limited to Samsung devices, but the company has been fervently attempting to expand production in a bid to meet 3rd-party demand. Admittedly, it would be a bit odd for a non-Samsung phone to debut a brand-new iteration of AMOLED, but it's certainly not out of the realm of possibility.
The insider responsible for the leak has also divulged that Google is working with "multiple carriers ... and OEMs" on their own iterations of Android Ice Cream Sandwich phones to be launched alongside the upcoming Nexus phone. That last part sounds a little optimistic to us, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see how all of this pans out. And again, it's all just a rumor - so take it with a grain of salt.
