Samsung Nexus Prime to Head for Verizon First, and All US Carriers Thereafter

September 15, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We had recently told you about the Samsung Nexus Prime that had emerged with a few details. The handset has again surfaced, and this time around, we spotted the handset getting all set to head for all the carriers in the US. If you would remember, you have been fed with news saying that the device was to be carried by Verizon.

A few days ago, we had also spotted the handset on Samsung’s website where a blank page was posted, hinting at a launch soon. The smartphone code named GT-I9250 was also found bearing the Wi-Fi certification.


The device is believed to be powered by Google’s latest OS – Ice Cream Sandwich. The 8.8 mm thin phone is rumored to come with a 4.65-inch screen with 1280 x 720 resolution, a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, 1 GB RAM, dual cameras and so on.

The grapevine has it that the phone, which will be seen on Verizon around late October or early November, will be offered on other carriers too thereafter.

Folks at TheDroidGuy claim they identified the smartphone from a Samsung worker. The phone they saw looks similar to its sibling – Nexus S – with a slight change in its length and thickness.

We tend to think the size change could be due to the LTE radio coming with the phone. The device has surfaced with two cameras – an 8 megapixel shooter at the back and a 2 megapixel in the front.

It also supports NFC, MHL and HDMI. At the bottom of the handset a single “home” like button, similar to that we saw on the Galaxy Note was also spotted. A power button and volume rocker was also seen on the sides of the device.

The device also comes with a TI dual core OMAP processor and Android 2.3.4 will be available in two versions – a GSM and CDMA model.

What we infer is that the device will be soon launched as the details hints at that. Stay tuned as we expect an official confirmation any time now.
