Google's Nexus family of devices might be on its way to Verizon Wireless' network as well in the near future, and the Nexus Prime is expected to be the first handset in the series to arrive on shelves at the wireless carrier.

Google is reportedly working on the future Nexus model, one that should arrive on the market with the next version of Android, namely Ice Cream Sandwich, and it seems that the phone might enjoy wider availability than its predecessors.

Supposedly called Nexus Prime, the handset is said to have just been spotted at Verizon, which means that it might not be too long before an official announcement on its release is made.

For the time being, however, this is only a rumor, and it might not pan out in the end, so we'll take it with a grain of salt.

According to the guys over at TechnoBuffalo, one of their sources has seen the Nexus Prime at Verizon, and confirmed that it would sport a full 720p (1280 x 720) display, along with the Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS on board.

Some of the previous rumors on the matter also suggested that the smartphone would boast a display that is 4.5-inches in size, along with a dual-core application processor that was clocked in at 1.5GHz.

Moreover, rumor has it that the mobile phone could be released on shelves as soon as October is here, though no confirmation on this has emerged until now.

The same as the last Google phone, the Nexus S, the next model should be manufactured by Samsung and should include a nice range of high-end specs and features that would make it a powerful competitor for some of the latest flagship phones out there.

For the time being, however, the existence of Google Nexus Prime did not receive an official confirmation, though that might change in a matter of weeks, so keep an eye on this space for more info on the matter.
