Nexus Prime Rumored to Have Massive Display, Different Name
We know that the release of Android Ice Cream Sandwich is not too far off in the distance, Eric Schmidt confirmed it for either October or November, and right now with all of the rumors that we’ve heard, we’re putting our money on October as the lucky release month. Two devices that are supposedly going to launch with ICS include the heavily rumored Samsung Droid Prime and the Samsung Nexus Prime. It’s still unclear if they are one in the same, one just with Verizon branding, or if they are two separate devices.
In fact, details on both are still extremely murky. Sure we’ve seen some rumored specs, 4.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED HD display and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, but not much more.
And now today, unfortunately, the waters got murkier.
GSMArena is reporting that the Samsung Nexus Prime might be arriving with a 4.65-inch HD display, a curved screen similar to that on the Nexus S, an 8.8mm design, and a late October launch.
Their tipster also mentioned that the name might not be the Nexus Prime but very well could be the Samsung Galaxy Nexus instead. So, while the Prime’s features still remain a little clouded, we again see October mentioned which means that we will probably get some more concrete details at some point later this month.
A beefed up Nexus S?
How does that sound to you all?

“Tipster”..geez…Didn’t Samsung already confirm (albeit indirectly through a registry filing) that it will be called the Nexus Prime? And this was earlier this week.

Sammy could just be using Nexus Prime as a code name

the nexus phone from its inception has been ground breaking…its funny how people are so caught up in the apple world that they dont want to admit it…or they just dont know any better. The first nexus one was better than the iphone but it wasnt even marketed. The tmobile rep was tired of companies like apple just making phones with features missing only to turn around and make the next phone with the feature that shoulda been in the phone in the first place. For example…iphone, no video camera, then 3g has the video cam.then they did all the crappy updates..like come on. the samsung infuse is a better phone to be honest and so is the evo. But you will never hear a person say it out loud, hahahaha, funny but sad. the nexus s was a cool phone with no super leaps besides the nfc technology, but phones are just getting that stuff this year. So why isnt google being applauded for its contribution to the phone world?? Now this Siri thing with the iphone suppose to be so cool, but if it was on any other phone all of the iphoners would say “like who would even use that, thats dumb”..wake up people..android got that swype text instead of touching all the keys one by one, if it was appple it would be the best thing since sliced bread…sad…but funny…nexus prime is what im getting, and i own the samsung captivate, another phone better than the iphone but hey of course you know that…
