Nexus Prime Release Date As Early As November 10th?
[ Technology]

UPDATE: Launch confirmed for Oct 19th Samsung/Google event by Japanese carrier, release date said to be sometime in November.

We know that the big Google / Samsung mobile event is going down on October 19th, and we know that one of the big reveals set to take place at said event is the new Google OS, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Invitations went out last week for the event, which was rescheduled after the two companies cancelled the previous October 11th date out of respect for the late Steve Jobs.

It is widely speculated that the next Google phone, the Samsung Nexus Prime (Galaxy Nexus) will also be unveiled at the October 19th event. It would be the first device to run the brand new Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

Now, a leaked MAP (minimum advertised price) list reveals not only the suggested price of the device, but a possible release timeframe as well.

Droid Life obtained the list, which shows the “Samsung Galaxy Nexus” as a minimum $299 phone, with a MAP period beginning on November 10th, 2011. In addition, the list shows another buzzed-about phone, the HTC Rezound, with the exact same details.

Of course, the front end of this window is not a definite launch date, but it is possible. As Droid Life points out, it would be surprising to see the device launched before it can be advertised at the minimum price – so the speculation by some that we could see it hit stores even earlier looks to be on shaky ground.

And if you want to be super cynical, it’s always possible that the leaked memo could be incorrect or intentionally misleading in the worst-case scenario. But the timeframe definitely feels reasonable given this week’s probable unveiling.

Leaked specs have said the phone will sport a 4.65 super AMOLED screen with curved glass, as well as 1GB RAM and NFC capabilities.

Earlier this month, a video surfaced reportedly showing the Nexus Prime in the wild: It has yet to be totally confirmed or denied:

What do you think? Will this be a huge device for the Android platform? Can it challenge the just-released iPhone 4S? Apple just announced that they have sold over 4 million 4S devices in the first 3 days. Let us know how you feel about the upcoming phone in the comments.

    I hope nexus to be truly a good phone or even better than I crap phone. I hate to see all these losers camping out to gets this phone. It makes me sad to see how materialistic we are…it’s funny how these people think get got the best phone, when truly what they’re getting is a second generation crap. Good job apple. If they claim to be that good why are they suing everyone. Iphone owners forget that god is first not your iphone. Besides you probably don’t believe in good but steve jobs, as your god…

      There are no gods, just business men that preach…

        nice brandon, yea please dont bring your ignorant god speeches into a tech world, its more of a hobby, kinda like your god, at least the nexus prime will be real ;O , and will do real physical things ;). anyway the prime will be sick, just hope it will be here soon !

        • Brandon Hall

          Perfectly said Jeff! :D

        • Brandon S

          So Jeff can bring his ignorant god speeches here but Brandon can’t make a simple observation?

        Wrong about God. Also there is. Otho. Wron with picking the iPhone over any android phone. It comes down to choice. Much like God. You can choose to believe or not.

        In a way I feel sorry for you. To believe that there is no God would make your morals questionable at best and I imagine somewhat scarry at the end of your life.

        Now back to the phone. Some questions
        What is the battery life?
        Is the battery replaceable?
        Why did the opt for only a 5mpx camera on this huge phone?
        How long will they support it? The original nexus will not get Ics.
        Why didn’t they use super omled plus?

    Does anyone actually believe this supposed leaked Verizon map to be real? We have a map showing phone releases in chronological order, yet phones released are missing (two I can think of off the top of my head is the Pantech and iPhone 4S). Add to that is the fact that the Motorola Razr is also strangely absent from this list and if those rumors of its’ upcoming release are accurate then it should also show up on the map. My money is that the “leaked” map is either a fake or an attempt to intentionally mislead the public. Samsung should pray the date for the Nexus isn’t correct unless their new business model involves alienating and losing more customers.

      I feel like I missed something here. Releasing on November 10 would alienate and lose customers… how exactly?

    I know your saving data on the new type face but it truly sucks… people are not as stupid as you think. Don’t act like you did us a favor. bring back or I should say start to… show some class. I want you to have a great looking interface, I do… so don’t pick just anything that apple is not… learn from what they are doing. samsung and google are the other great players on the plantet.
    act like it… google your not a manufacture nor an OS replacement. YOU are the iconic interface for world communication via the internet and associated industries.
    Once everyone gets their rolls down…. we will all sleep better. I love a strong non-apple product… but look… I don’t even know what to call it… What’s that tell you.
    Set up long term trade contracts with domain boundries and mutually supported market share protection. Protection is best accomplished through long term ageements. Give boundries a wide girthe for profit overflow from each other and in that way every one gets their fair share. The future is in creating a comunications network that works without the use of a triditional tele-communications service provider. My children make calls at home with their itouch via wi-fi…. the futrue is here.
    Also, less is more. Google, create less icons. Let your interface carry the logos of the companies or services that represent the choices of the costomer. This will ensure your contemporary graphic appeal and streamline the enterface. Service is every thing! Drop market lag and play your best hand NOW!
    All my best.
