Next week, South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung Electronics and Internet giant Google are expected to unveil to the world a new Google phone, one that has been spotted into the wild lately under the name of Nexus Prime.
The new mobile phone
should become available for purchase in the United States on the airwaves of wireless carrier Verizon, where it is said to arrive as the Galaxy Nexus.
The handset should be exclusive on this carrier's network, and what appears to be the full list of hardware specifications it will arrive on shelves with has just emerged into the wild.
According to BGR
, which published the leaked details, the new handset will indeed run under the next flavor of Android, none other than the Ice Cream Sandwich.
Moreover, the handset will land on the market with a large 4.65-inch Super AMOLED screen with curved glass, capable of delivering a 1280 x 720-pixel HD resolution.
The new mobile phone is expected to pack a TI OMAP 4460 dual-core Cortex A9 application processor, with each core clocked in at 1.2GHz. It will also sport 1GB of RAM.
Moreover, the new mobile phone

The specs list of Galaxy Nexus also includes a 5-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with auto focus and support for 1080p HD video capture, complemented by a 1.3-megapixel photo snapper on the front, which should prove a great option when it comes to video calling.
