Nexus Prime Video, Pictures SurfaceBy: Josh Wolford - October 7, 2011
Has the Nexus Prime (aka Galaxy Nexus) been spotted in the wild?
According to mobilissimo.ro, someone has gotten their hands on the upcoming device – and it’s running Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0).
Here’s a video demo of the phone, and it looks to have some of the features that have been rumored of the Nexus Prime – that would include the lack of mechanical buttons, replaced by a touch interface. Check it out below:
We’ve also been graced with this clear shot of the device, which may be the first full on image of the upcoming Google-powered phone:
Yesterday, we reported on some leaked specs of the Nexus Prime. BGR obtained documents that showed the upcoming device equipped with a 4.65-inch super AMOLED-HD screen with curved glass, 1GB RAM, dual-core A9 processor and NFC capabilities.
Later, gsmarena posted what they claimed to be the actual specs of the Nexus Prime, which modified the previous rumors to include an 8 MP camera and a battery that would allow for a couple of days use without a charge.
Could the phone above be that phone?
We were set to find out this upcoming Tuesday, October 11th at the Unpacked 2011 Samsung/Google mobile event. Invitations went around for that event at the end of last month. Most speculated that the Nexus Prime and Ice Cream Sandwich OS would be unveiled at that time.
But today, Samsung and Google released a joint statement postponing any new product launch, saying it simply wasn’t the right time.
It looks like we will have to wait for any official announcement. But until then, check out some more photos of what just might be Ice Cream Sandwich running on the new Nexus phone:
What do you think? Does it look like an iPhone 4S rival? Let us know in the comments.
