Google and Samsung to Launch the Nexus Prime and Android Ice Cream Sandwich on October 11

Samsung and Google have started inviting tech blogs to a special “Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2011 – Google Episode” event. The event will be held on October 11 at 11.30 AM, and it’s very likely that the next rumored Google Android flagship device — the Nexus Prime — will be unveiled at this event, along with the next version of Android — Ice Cream Sandwich.

Samsung Google Ice Cream Sandwich Event

The Nexus Prime will be the first smartphone running Android Ice Cream Sandwich and will be the best phone yet, in terms of specifications. It is rumored to have a 1.5 GHz dual core processor, a 4.65 inch touchscreen display and will support 4G connectivity.

Ice Cream Sandwich aims to unify the smartphone and tablet versions of Android. It also hopes to address the very pertinent problem of fragmentation.

Apple recently announced that it will be launching a new iPhone on October 4. Amazon launched its new Kindle Fire tablet just yesterday.

Hopefully, we should see an Ice Cream Sandwich update for major devices rolling out soon after the official launch. I can’t wait to install it on my Samsung Galaxy S 2.

For now, check out this video of a Nexus S running Ice Cream Sandwich by Engadget.
