We first reported yesterday that Samsung was right on track with their Super AMOLED HD 720p displays and now new reports are coming in stating they will be the first window for viewing the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on the Samsung Nexus Prime. While this is still all just speculation and rumors everything does seem to be nicely lining up for us.

We have heard a lot of reports suggesting Samsung will be the manufacturer for the next Nexus device and that it would indeed come late 2011. While I've been hearing Thanksgiving for a time-frame new reports are suggesting it will hit the shelves around October for competitive reasons.

With Samsung's HD displays coming along nicely and most manufacturers running some powerful dual-core processors these days the specs are all nicely starting to line up with previous rumors. Those suggest the Samsung Nexus Prime will have a 1.5 Ghz dual-core processor as well as an upgraded 4.5" Super AMOLED HD display with a resolution of 1280x720p to rock your world, pair that with Android 2.5 or 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich all coming in October. While many of these specs are most likely accurate and will be what we see on the next Nexus device, we still don't know for sure who will be the manufacturer and when it's coming. If these rumors are to be believed (and they all sound similar) then the next month or so will be exciting as we start to hear and see more.

Recently some Android Ice Cream Sandwich screenshots were leaked to the public giving us a glimpse of the future. All I know is things are about to get really exciting for Android fans.

    4.5″ is way to big needs to be 4.0 or 3.8

    I think that would be unlikely for Samsung to launch two 4.5ers in the same month, one being the “Hercules” and this. Initially LG was the next Nexus rumor, I’m still pushing for that„ although you can’t beat that SA HD display!

    If ICS is going to bridge the gap between the smartphone and tablet versions of Android then we should expect a near simultaneous unveiling of a tablet as the reference tablet hardware.
