If rumors are to be believed then Korean smartphone giant Samsung is set to release the Nexus Prime in the U.S. via Verizon. The Nexus Prime is rumored to be Samsung’s first Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)-based smartphone.

The Nexus Prime is most likely to arrive this fall and reports said that the smartphone will be out by October. The smartphone is expected to be devoid of any carrier customization or preloaded applications.

Other rumors about the device said that the handset will be devoid of any kind of physical buttons that will compliment the Android 4.0 build, and will launch on Verizon in the U.S, according to a Business Insider report.

The expected Nexus Prime specifications include a massive Super AMOLED HD display screen with 720p resolution. The processor speed for the Nexus Prime is a next-generation dual-core CPU, in either 1.2GHz or 1.5GHz speeds.

The device will have a 5 MP camera primary camera with improved sensors for higher quality images and better low-light conditions. The front facing 1 MP camera will make video chat possible.

The smartphone is expected to be powered by Texas Instruments' OMAP 4460 or Qualcomm's latest (Krait) Snapdragon processor.
