Samsung And Google To Pair Up For Next Nexus Device

Samsung is looking set to collaborate with Google on the next 'Nexus' device, as the rumour mill goes into overdrive.

What device Samsung and Google are working on is unclear, whether it's a smartphone or tablet, but they look set to create something.

The biggest clue is Samsung's new super fast processor, the Exynos 5250 dual-core Cortex-A15. This processor uses Mali T-604 graphics.

The new Exynos is clocked at 544MHz, double the speed of the 266MHz Exynos 4210 currently found in the Samsung Galaxy S2.

Other details that point to a new creation by Samsung and Google is a Super AMOLED display, with a 1,280 x 800 resolution, a five-megapixel camera. Specifications such as these would point to a tablet device, but the Google Nexus tablet has been rumoured to be designed and produced by ASUS, not Samsung.

However, the Samsung Galaxy Note features a 5.3in screen with the 1,280 x 800 resolution, so perhaps a new Nexus handset is on the cards?

Samsung and Google have already collaborated on the Nexus S handset, which features a 1GHz Cortex-A8 processor, 512MB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
