Mark Of Respect: Samsung Stops Nexus Prime Reveal

We’ve know for a little while now that South Korean company Samsung were planning on bringing out a new handset to their expanding range and one that would be a massive contender. Confusion has come from its name with the latest being that of the Galaxy Nexus or Samsung Nexus Prime. Initially the new add-on was due to be released around Thanksgiving time with a rumored launch next Tuesday 11th October along with Google’s new Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

On the 5th we brought you an article suggesting how the Sammy would look via a leaked shot, as well as news of a video that could be seen over on YouTube indicating that the handset could be curved in appearance. We were hoping to see the handset unveiled next week, but guardian.co.uk have reported that Samsung have now postponed the launch for another time, saying that the timing would be intrusive around the death of Apple’s Steve Jobs.

Just a day after Apple’s official iPhone 4S announcement, news was to shock the world, that co-founder and former CEO Jobs had in fact passed away. Both Apple and Samsung have been in and out of court battles in relation to patents, but the news has saddened everybody. Next Tuesday will see the start of the CTIA trade show, but with the world of technology losing a pure genius, we’ll not 100% sure whether it will go ahead.

According to cnet.com Samsung and Google have since cancelled their time slot in respect to the late Steve Jobs, but key-speakers from Sprint, Verizon and AT&T will be present, along with news of the latest hardware.

This year it seems that Samsung have taken over the world of technology, with constant news surrounding the Galaxy S II smartphone, its three US variants along with news of LTE and HD versions coming in 2012.

Adding to this, a new smartphone/tablet device by the name of the Galaxy Note running on Windows Phone Mango is due to be released towards the end of the year.

In terms of what the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Prime) has to offer, we can tell you that it is rumored to launch on Verizon’s network, come with a 4.65-inch display with Super Amoled Curved touchscreen, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 5 megapixel rear camera and front facing, LTE, HSPA, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of memory, 1750mAh battery, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS and so on.

Sorry guys to disappoint with news that the new Samsung will not show up next week, but keep your eyes and ears peeled for more updated information. Of course when it comes in, we will deliver.

Let us know if you are waiting for the new Samsung? Will it do enough to fend off the new iPhone 4S, Motorola’s Droid Bionic or even some of HTC’s such as the Vigor?
