Samsung roadmap leaked, will the Nexus Prime arrive in December?


I hope you’re ready for some more Nexus Prime rumors, ’cause we got a lot of them coming your way. Thanks to the guys over at GSMArena, Samsung’s roadmap for the rest of the year has found its way to the Interwebz. As always, it’s good practice to take these leaks with a tiny grain of salt. Just in case they turn out to be false.

Interestingly, the original roadmap was organized by the release week’s number. Meaning, a week 40 release means the device will launch between October 3 and October 9. We’re currently in week 33. But worry not, I’ve replaced the week numbers with the actual dates for our sanity’s sake. Without further ado, let’s dig in.

Whew! That’s a lot of Android devices. We have everything from low-end cheap phones to “Holy Jesus, is that the Nexus Prime?”. Yes, there are some interesting devices on this list but that last one takes the cake: the Samsung I9250. As you might remember, we first mentioned the I9250 about a week ago. Both this new roadmap and the rumor from last week seem to be coming from the same source, as the I9250′s specs match up perfectly on both leaks.

If both of these rumors turn out to be true,  then the Samsung I9250 will be one of the first Android devices to launch with Ice Cream Sandwich. Does that mean the I9250 is the Nexus Prime or Nexus 3? We have no idea. But if it does turn out to be the next Nexus device, then it looks like it’s coming out in early December just like the Nexus S did. And not in October like some rumors are saying.

But everything’s up in the air at this point. There’s a still a chance that the Nexus Prime will launch in October and the I9250 will follow right behind in December. What do you guys think? Is this the Nexus Prime or just an awesome Ice Cream Sandwich phone? Let us know in the comments.
