Yesterday there was an alleged cease and desist letter from Samsung that confirmed the name of the upcoming Nexus phone from Google, the Nexus Prime. Now we have more confirmation about the device being on the way. It’s been reported that the Nexus Prime (aka Samsung GT-I9250) was spotted receiving its WiFi certification from WiFi.org. It is a certification process that WiFi-capable devices have to go through to ensure that they are truly compatible with the different IEEE Standards (a/b/g/n) available.
Since it hasn’t paid a visit to the FCC, we can only assume that that’s the next step, so there’s a possibility we’ll be seeing it sometime later this year. If it does, it should be late fall or early winter, which is when Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich update for Android should be launched as well. The Nexus Prime is also speculated to be headed towards Verizon’s direction, since the carrier is rumored to not carry the upcoming Galaxy S 2 phone. Stay tuned, and we’ll keep you posted.
