While some confusion still exists around what the final product name will be, new details emerging from the BGR camp are clearing up the specifics on the NEXUS PRIME (or Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Droid Prime, Droid Nexus). Claiming a trusted source, a new report gives us an almost complete look at the spec sheet of Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich flagship. Here’s the dirt on the next Nexus:The Samsung Galaxy Nexus name is strongly attached to this rumor, and while it is a slight departure from the nomenclature established with previous releases, tying the device more strongly to the Galaxy S brand could have positive benefits. The phone is said to be a pure Google Experience device (as expected) and is once again confirmed to be a Verizon exclusive in the US.
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
- 9mm thin
- 4.65-inch 1280 x 720-pixel Super AMOLED HD with curved glass

Update: Oh, snap -- things are starting to get real now. This morning, BGR broke some exclusive info on the Nexus Prime that they obtained from a "trusted source." Now, GSMarena is reporting that they also have exclusive info on the upcoming device, but there's one problem: the latter strongly disagrees with the former. In fact, about the only thing the two sources are in agreeance about is the display --a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD running at 1280x720.
So, let's have a look at what GSMarena's source is saying the Prime will be packing:
- 1.5GHz dual-core processor, most likely Exynos
- PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU (the same one that's in the iPad 2)
- 8MP rear shooter with 1080p video capture
- 2050mAh battery
I have to say, that sounds more like a Nexus device to me. With all of the contradicting specs, though, there's only one thing we can do: wait until October 11th and get the deets straight from the source.
