Verizon Getting the Samsung Droid Prime in October?

After seeing the Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile variants of the Samsung Galaxy S II, it became even clearer that Verizon is passing on the phone. Following basic logic, one would think that the Galaxy S II LTE (SGS2 refresh) would be a great choice for Verizon but it appears that the carrier has other plans: Droid Prime.

The Google Nexus Prime is known to be the next upcoming Google phone and Samsung’s legal team has recently confirmed that the Korean manufacturer is indeed making the phone. According to BGR’s sources, Verizon will get a Samsung SCH-i515 in October, a phone codenamed Droid Prime. Will the Google Nexus Prime be a Droid phone? Will the Droid Prime be a Nexus Prime variant?

Turns out Verizon doesn’t think the Galaxy S II (and its refresh) has any chance of competing with the upcoming iPhone 5. Instead, the Droid Prime will be the first phone to launch with Google Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich and Verizon is said to have an exclusive on that, once it hits the line-up in October.
