Something Big is Coming: Samsung Nexus Prime

The event that Samsung will hold next week will most probably mark the launch of the next Google phone. Until then, the Korean manufacturer teases us with some details about Nexus Prime.

While Apple confirmed the rumors that only the iPhone 4S would be launched instead of iPhone 5, Android fans are anxiously looking forward to next week’s event, Samsung Unboxed, which will be held in San Diego on October 11. The Google Episode of that event is particularly interesting, as Nexus Prime will be announced then.

The above video does not give away too much, and as far as we are concerned only the last seconds are relevant, the rest being just copywriting. However, we can easily deduce from the silhouette that appears at the end of the video that the next Google phone will be incredibly attractive, with some unreal curves.

Some technical details are also available, but at this point they are more rumors than certain facts. Presumably, the Nexus Prime will feature a 4.6″ Super-AMOLED HD display with a resolution of 1280×720 (720i). Given the diagonal, this means that the display has a mind-blowing density of 320dpi. The main camera will have a resolution of 8.0 MP. In what concerns the CPU, Nexus Prime will have either a 1.2 or a 1.5 Ghz CPU, that will make use of 1 GB of RAM.

It is also rumored that Nexus Prime or Droid Prime, as it is named in some places, will go to Verizon exclusively, but this would be a bit odd, since Google has a partnership with Sprint, at least for Google Wallet. Speaking of Google’s mobile payment platform, Nexus Prime will most likely support NFC, too, thus increasing the number of smartphones that can be used for making payments.
