14 Androids Outmuscling Apple's iPhone

Samsung Nexus Prime

Google will launch a new flagship phone sometime this year. In keeping with its Nexus tradition, this phone is called Nexus Prime, made by Samsung and powered by the newest version of Android -- 4.0, or Ice Cream Sandwich, according to blog BGR.

The Nexus Prime has some impressive features, if reports are correct. The phone's dual-core processors will each run at speeds of at least 1.2-gigahertz. The front of the phone is all screen, with no physical buttons. And though the camera is only 5-megapixel, it is expected to have better resolution and low-light capabilities. The Nexus Prime is also expected to be 4G LTE-compatible.

Google continues the Nexus push as a way of offering a pure Android standard bearer for the industry. Though it has softened on its attempt to bypass the carriers that insist on limiting features or loading the phones with their own programs, Google will no doubt add technology like near-field communication to expand its mobile payment front and other location-based services.
