Samsung Nexus Prime Release Date: 'Nexus Prime' and 'Ice Cream Sandwich' to Launch Oct. 11

On Oct. 11, Samsung and Google are expected to reveal its brand new smartphone model and Android operating system: the "Nexus Prime" and "Ice Cream Sandwich."

Samsung revealed a teaser video yesterday that had the premise of two things going great together. Some pundits say the video is pointing to the expected debut of both companies' new smartphone and Android-based operating system. Both of the debuts are expected to go down at the CITI trade show in San Diego on Oct. 11.

Invitations to the event have been sent out already.

Samsung's "Nexus Prime" smartphone is said to have a similar look to the "Galaxy S II" and a curved screen like the "Nexus S." It will come in at a weight of 130g and a thickness of 8.8mm.

Samsung's 1.5GHz Exynos dual-core processor will power the device and the smartphone will contain 1GB of RAM. The "Nexus Prime" will also have 16GB of internal storage, an 8MP camera and a 2,000mAh battery.

The new smartphone will also come with a newly added feature. The feature will allow users to preview applications from the app drawer before launching them. The Gmail app can also split into two in landscape mode to show the user's composed e-mail and inbox messages.

Executives at Google have hinted at the fall release of its upcoming version of Android: "Ice Cream Sandwich."

The updated operating system will combine the best elements of operating systems "Gingerbread 2.3" and "Honeycomb 3.2." This new piece of computer software will be an all-encompassing operating system for smartphones and computer tablets.

Application developers for Samsung's smartphones and tablets will now have an easier time working with them, since "Ice Cream Sandwich's" firmware works on both platforms simultaneously.

Samsung has been leaking hints as of late about being the sole company chosen by Google to develop the "Nexus Prime." Yesterday's teaser trailer video seems to be another hint at the company's future plans.
