Samsung and Google are expected to launch the next-generation Android mobile operating system, Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), and the next-generation Nexus phone, the Nexus Prime, on October 19.
The news comes as Samsung has given out invites for the Nexus Prime and ICS event scheduled to be held not in the U.S. but in Hong Kong.
As you can see from the invite photo posted here, the event will be at 10 a.m. local time in Hong Kong.
Samsung and Google were supposed to unveil the Nexus Prime and Android 4.0 during the CTIA expo last October 11.
However, both companies sent out statements before the expected Nexus Prime launch saying that the firms feel it was not the greatest of times to announce new products.
Google and Samsung cancelled the launching out of respect for Steve Jobs, who passed away last October 5.
The Nexus Prime is the third Nexus, or “pure Android” phone.
Also known as the Galaxy Nexus in other reports, the Nexus Prime is said to be packing a 1.2 GHz processor (although it was earlier rumored it would pack a 1.5GHz CPU), a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED screen with 720×1280 pixels resolution, 1GB RAM, 5MP rear camera capable of snapping full HD 1080p video, and 32GB of storage.
