    Samsung Nexus Prime

    Anyone else looking to get this phone? So far we know that it'll have a curved 4.6" 1280x720 display (probably SAMOLED+), and more than likely an OMAP4460 or OMAP4470 SoC.

    This is a teaser from Google/Samsung:

    Other rumoured specs include:
    - 2000mAh battery
    - Aluminium backing
    - 1GB RAM
    - Icecream Sandwich OS
    - No front facing buttons (like Honeycomb tablets)

    Anyone else thinking of getting one?

    If I had the money Id probably go for it But Im definitely lookig forward to next week's (11.10.2011) release and its specs

    On the topic of the CPU: Why not the Exynos? What is so different about the OMAP? Any rumours on the clock-speed?

    Texas Instruments is the official development partner for Ice cream Sandwich, so it's natural to expect Google will include it in their newest flagship phone.

    *sigh*

    What with Google's business model being entirely about doing what the market wants, and gathering information on what people like/dislike, you can be sure it's going to be a profound object of desire to both phone geeks an ordinary users.

    It'll also be rooted within I'd say about a week...

    I too wish I had the money..

    Considering the rumors point to the Nexus Prime being unveiled at the "Samsung Unpacked" event next week -not to mention Samsung's ongoing role as Google's OEM- it would seem rather awkward to invite TI to the party.

    I vote the new 1.5 GHz Exynos processor announced last week.

    I agree, that's what I first thought. But the 32nm 1.5GHz Exynos hasn't even started sampling yet, so there's little chance it'll be that SoC. So they either use the existing 45nm design and overclock it, or go with a TI SoC. Considering Google is commissioning the project, I doubt Samsung had much say in the matter.

    I could be wrong (I hope I am, a 32nm Exynos would be ultra awesome)!

    My guess is $650-$700 at launch from a decent retailer.

    Apparently the official specs have been revealed. They look reasonably legit.


    o Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
    o 9mm thin
    o 4.65-inch 1280 x 720-pixel Super AMOLED HD with curved glass
    o TI OMAP 4460 dual-core Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.2GHz
    o 1GB of RAM
    o 32GB of built-in storage
    o 5-megapixel camera on the back, 1.3-megapixel in the front
    o 1080p HD video capture support
    o LTE/HSPA depending on carrier
    o Wi-Fi a/b/g/n
    o NFC
    o 1,750 mAh battery


    Samsung Galaxy Nexus full specs revealed; Verizon Wireless exclusive


    Not too shabby if true. I'm guessing that they opted for a high quality camera instead of just jumping on the MOAR MEGAPIXELZ bandwagon.

    I have a feeling it will. I hope it does!

    Oh lol, more leaked info which conflicts with the last. I love rumours. :P

    This time it's from GSMArena (who I'd say are a lot more respectable than BGR, but who knows when it comes to rumours). Revised specs:

    1.5GHz Exynos + PowerVR SGX543MP2 (that's a dual core GPU, for those playing at home)
    8MP, full 1080p HD camera with "improved sensor" (my guess is back-illuminated)
    4.65-inch, 1280x720 display
    2050mAh battery (:O)

    http://www.gsmarena.com/source_close_to_go...s-news-3239.php

    As much as I want this particular rumour to be true, I'm still convinced that they'll use an OMAP SoC. We'll see!

    Looks like the set of specs leaked by BGR was the correct one:

    Yep. But that's just the announcement, the actual release date probably won't change.

    LP hasn't been updated in months. The author said he was re-writing it from scratch, but then got distracted with his new project UberMusic.

    I imagine the ICS launcher is heavily GPU accellerated, so it's going to be better than LP in terms of performance. LP is based on the stock 2.0 Android launcher.
