Just hours after Apple unveiled the new iPhone 4S, Samsung has put live a new video on its YouTube account, providing the first official look at the next Android smartphone collaboration between the Korean manufacturer and Google; the Nexus Prime.

The video is associated with another of Samsung’s ‘Unpacked’ events, labelled the ‘Google Episode’, scheduled for October 11 in San Diego, going with a theme that “some things go better together”. This all but confirms that Samsung will team up with Google for a second Nexus Android smartphone, releasing a device to follow the popular Nexus S.

The Nexus Prime is expected to feature a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED HD screen with a pixel density of 320ppi, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, and will debut with no hardware buttons. It is also thought to be the first handset to run Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich Android software.

Take a look at the video below for a look at the spectacularly curved screen, which tells us “Something Big Is Coming”. Initial YouTube commenters split on whether it is a nice feature.

Samsung will of course unveil the new device on October 11 and we will bring you news of the launch as soon as it drops.
