    Here's a new set of rumors about the upcoming Samsung Nexus Prime -- it still can't even get close to the number of rumors the iPhone 5 gets. It appears that it will reach the market as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. The information allegedly comes from a Samsung rep; he said that the highly anticipated phone will be indeed called Samsung Galaxy Nexus -- wonder what will happen with Samsung's newly adopted naming convention? It will reportedly sport a 4.65-inch HD display of 1280 x 720 resolution, 1 GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, microSD card slot, will be around 8.8mm thick and powered by a ...

    Samsung Prime rumors continue to pour in! Remember when the phone allegedly showed up at Verizon Wireless headquarters? Today's rumor is related to Verizon too as the phone was reportedly seen at the Verizon Developer's conference in Las Vegas. A person claiming to be a Samsung employee held an unknown Android phone and, according to reports, it was the Samsung Prime. Those who saw the phone (because they were stripped of any devices capable of immortalizing the moment) claim that the Prime is indeed a larger Nexus S. Taller and thicker, it sports an eight-megapixel camera at the back and ...

    We recently uncovered some new evidence that helps us to nail-down the name of the Android Ice Cream Sandwich launch device as the Nexus Prime, as well as giving us some hints about the device's hardware capabilities. The hardware's just part of it, though, making the phone's release dependent on the availability of ICS. Google's been talking about a Q4 release for the updated operating system, but we may be able to narrow that down a little more now, thanks to a comment Google's Eric Schmidt recently made. Schmidt stated, speaking at the Dreamforce conference, that ICS "is being released ...

    Yesterday we heard a rumor that Verizon would be making up for its lack of a Samsung Galaxy S2 by carrying an even more-hotly-anticipated smartphone, the Droid Prime, which would launch Android Ice Cream Sandwich. While details were sparse, we learned that the handset would likely be going by model number SCH-i515. That designation is already starting to pop up in the usual places we see a phone visit prior to its release, putting in an appearance with the Bluetooth Special Interest Group. The smartphone's Bluetooth 3.0 certification backs-up some of what we've heard so far, that this ...

    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 ...

    Earlier this month, one of BGR's sources with information on the development of Google's next Nexus devices let slip some supposed details of the smartphone, like a dual-core 1.5GHz CPU, full 720p display, and a possible name. Now armed with some follow-up info, BGR is confirming many of those specs, as well as naming Samsung the manufacturer of the handset, which it now believes may be called the Nexus Prime. The 720p screen will purportedly be of the Super AMOLED variety, with a new HD designation. In further support of the claim processor choice, BGR now names the chip itself as the ...

    Back at the end of June we heard that Samsung was allegedly the one to manufacture Google's next pure-Android phone -- pretty much like the Nexus S. That phone is rumored to be called the Nexus Prime and has reportedly surfaced inside Verizon's HQ. The next Nexus is not only rumored to be running Google Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich but it will also allegedly sport a 720p display with 720 x 1280 resolution. There are various rumors about the phone's display size, some hinting 4.5 inches and others talking about 4.65. We've also heard rumors of a Texas Instruments OMAP4460 dual-core ...

    There are so many rumors around the next Google Nexus phone, allegedly called the Nexus Prime, that we already take it for granted Samsung is making it. In case you have any doubts, the manufacturer's legal team comes to the rescue basically confirming the Samsung-made Google Nexus Prime. In the screenshot above (full size) you'll see a Cease and Desist letter from the Korean manufacturer's legal team trying to stop a firmware leak for the Nexus Prime. Not only the letter confirms the existence of the phone but it also brings confirmation to the fact that Samsung is indeed making the ...

    A Samsung SCH-i515 is believed to be Verizon's Droid Prime to arrive sometime in October while the Nexus Prime, confirmed by Samsung's legal team, is believed to be the GT-i9250 (probably the same device with its carrier variant or two different models altogether). For what it's worth, a support page has been discovered online for the Samsung GT-i9250, which by itself doesn't mean much, but in the big picture it means that the phone is getting ready for prime-time. What to expect? A 4.5-4.65-inch HD screen with 1280 x 720 resolution, a fast, dual-core 1.5GHz processor and Android 4.0 Ice ...

    Samsung has already basically confirmed its involvement in the development of the Google Nexus Prime -- the Ice Cream Sandwich-powered successor to the Nexus S -- and now the device's user agent profile has surfaced. The big news here, besides the fact that the name for GT-I9250's UAProf is nexusprime.xml, is the rather surprising (and perhaps disappointing) listing of a 480x800 WVGA resolution. Now, it's certainly possible that Samsung falsified the information here, under the assumption that this document would be made public; after all, the MMS Max Image Resolution, which is usually the ...
