File this one as #20442343 for the rumor bin. This time, BGR is claiming that their source has confirmed Samsung to be the maker of Google’s next Nexus or Google Experience device. The name “Nexus Prime” is being tossed around, but we know the origin and can’t say that it’s more than just something to call it at this point.

The device will supposedly be launching with Ice Cream Sandwich and will have a 720p display to make room for those virtual buttons you currently see on Honeycomb. The belief that Samsung is making it comes from BGR’s claims that the display will be “Super AMOLED HD”, suggesting we’ll get something close to Super AMOLED Plus, except with higher resolution.

Inside will apparently be TI’s OMAP 4460, a dual-core monster that is nothing sneeze at. All of it is said to go down right around the holiday season, folks, but don’t hold your breath just yet. [BGR]
