Samsung’s Google Nexus Prime likely headed to Canada

In about 24 hours from now, Google and Samsung are going to officially unveil what’s expected to be the world’s first Android Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone: the Google Nexus Prime.

We already know that the handset should be released by Verizon in the US (possibly under the name of Samsung Galaxy Nexus), and it makes perfect sense for Google to want to introduce it in most major markets around the world.

If you’re in Canada, wondering whether or not the new Nexus will be released there, it looks like we’ve got good news. MobileSyrup has received an email from Samsung – in it, the company talks about the upcoming Google / ICS event, mentioning that “the coolest Samsung smartphone will be coming to Canada soon.” That’s gotta be the Nexus Prime, right?

It’s said that details on the smartphone’s launch date and availability are going to be unveiled “in the coming weeks.”

The Google Nexus Prime (which probably looks like in the photo seen above) should feature a 4.6 inch HD (1280 x 720) Super AMOLED Plus display, dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, LTE connectivity, NFC, 5MP or 8MP camera, 1080p video recording, and – of course – the brand new Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.

    I truly hope it will be the Nexus Prime coming to Canada quicker than the Nexus S. But I know that Samsung is talking about the Galaxy S2 LTE for Rogers.

    Less than 24 hrs. It should be sometime tomorrow afternoon in the US because HK is ahead of us.

    I think time in Hong Kong is GMT +8. Assuming you’re EDT (-4 [Eastern Daylight Time I think with daylight savings]) it should be 10PM on the 18th.
