The Samsung Galaxy Nexus (aka Google Nexus Prime) has been in the news quite a lot recently, with more leaks and rumors trying to unravel the mystery, yet because of the general silence coming from Google and Samsung, we cannot confirm anything really. There were rumors here and there, but we never really received any solid leads. The only solid piece of information was in regards to Samsung sending out their invitations to the “Unpacked” event but even what was official got canceled so we are pretty much in unknown territory…again. However, according to a leaked photo, the Google Nexus Prime will be rocking a HD display!
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Verizon’s rumored branding) or Google Nexus Prime got its first photograph taken a while ago. The device was spotted in the wild and a picture of the “About” section was taken, picture that manages to give us some details regarding this upcoming Android superphone. The device will come apparently with a 4.6 inch chassis according to the folks at GSMArena and the first reports according to which the Google Nexus Prime ships with a HD display seem to be true.
The image taken of the Google Nexus Prime shows some details and it seems that the display will come with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels on a 4.6 inch display, giving it a pixel density of 320, very close to the iPhone 4’s Retina Display with its 326 DPI. Combine this with the latest flavor of Android (Ice Cream Sandwich), a rumored dual-core processor and some higher grade specs (check out our Google Nexus Prime Specs Dilemma for an interesting reading) and you indeed have one of the best devices to land on the market in the near future. Unfortunately those are the only specs of which we could be somewhat certain about as that’s everything we could make out from the image.
Google Nexus Prime Release Date
We are certainly hoping to find out the (Samsung Galaxy Nexus) Google Nexus Prime release date during Google’s and Samsung’s event in Hong Kong (October 19th) and we hope that Eldar Murtazin is full of it. Until the official announcement all we have are some rumors and leaks like the riddle that pegged the device for a November 3rd release date or the info we got from an interesting detective-like story.
