An unconfirmed industry source has tipped the name to be Samsung Galaxy Nexus, with a curved 4.65" HD Super AMOLED display, and a thin metal shell, to be launched in October as the Android ICS poster child...

What i meant was, that Samsung has not had any Adndroid phones with metal body.

well, there is always the first time.

i dunno. i prefer the light weight plastic. i dont know why it matters anways if u get a case like most people do. give me the weight loss and thinness so when i slap that thick case on it, its not a brick.. lol

Prime was made because at first they believed it would be made by LG, resulting in LG Optimus Prime if ever. Just fan made obviously.

Sexy, sexy, SEXY! iPhone 5 WHAT? Android is taking phones to a new level. 4.6" HD Super AMOLED, & a sexy metal design. Wow Apple's days of innovation are over! Samsung is the best phone maker right now. If this comes out for Sprint, I am there. I love my HTC Evo 3D but I will make a jump to this in a heartbeat!

Wow Samsung Galaxy Nexus!

I still think that the Note is superior.. but maybe not everyone can take such a huge size, eh? ;-)

if you feel that Note is superior, fine. That just means you don't get what a Nexus phone means. :D

specwise, the Note IS superior.. but its for a different type of person.

If the Note came with ICS out of the box, that would be awesome.

I love the Samsung Galaxy Note. The 5.3" is so sexy, it's just that it has TouchWiz. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus will be pure Google & I would rather that then TouchWiz. Now if the Samsung Galaxy Note didn't have TouchWiz I would be all over that instead of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. I would rather have a bigger screen always. Both indeed are SICK though. I think Samsung makes the best phones in the world. HTC is second. I can honestly say that, even though I am a HTC fan who owns a HTC Evo 3D. Facts are facts! lol

Oh I know what a Nexus phone means. But I also think that when custom roms will arrive on the Note - the issue will become a moot point, as everyone will get to have the OS they like on it. :D

HTC would be first on my list if not the Note's screen size.. and if not the fact that HTC does not have SuperAmoled screens.

well, I think everyone knows what a Nexus phone means, if what you're saying is timely update. But what I should've said is the charm of a Nexus phone, with it being a "Google phone".

yeah, apple has never had a metal phone. this is a truly amazing innovation that samsung has come up with.

both sides of this sissy fight need to calm down. there are great droid phones on the horizon and plenty of people are excited to find out what apple has in store. if you truly think you've figured out which OS or which piece of hardware is superior, you're completely in the wrong.

Hey ayephoner. It looks to me like you've jailbroken your iPhone. I did so as well. Do you know what I didn't find in Cydia - and why I was so disappointed @ WWDC 2011? Because of the fact that Apple did not introduce widgets. Sure, there are some widgets in Cydia, but that's nothing compared to what Android market has.

So yeah - as a person who has a Jailbroken iPhone 4 - and who has never had an Android device - I say - Android is better.

ayephoner,
id have to say your completely wrong with that last statement, as which is "superior" as far as OS is completely subjective to the user. There will never be a 100% consesus. As far as hardware, android phones are vastly superior.

I don't understand why Android phones keep getting bigger and bigger....in my opinion 4.65" would be way too huge. I hope this isn't true. Or at least I hope they offer one with something between 4" and 4.3". You know, for those of us that don't have Sasquatch hands

these screen sizes are getting kind of stupid. 4.3 is the all around most balanced and best screen size in my opinion. soon phones are going to be the same size if not bigger than tablets smh.

It's completely different when your phone will not have buttons. durr.

I know it must be hard to accept, but the phone will be the same size as a 4.3" device. The larger screen comes from not wasting space on the 4 buttons.

This... Is... AWSOME!

All I thought about for the last few months was Hercules, Hercules, Hercules like it was the phone of phones.

No, this Nexus will be the phone of phones and whats best is that I will no longer have to wonder about updates unlike my stuck-on-froyo Vibrant.

Samsung is working very hard in the production lines while rotten Apple is working very hard in the court rooms.

Crazy rotten Apple go to hell.

Why is everyone saying every phone will "kill the iPhone"? If the phone meets your expectations, say so. Don't go bashing on someone else's credit. Which, even then, Apple makes out pretty good. They don't need a bigger display with the PPI they have, hacking for battery life, force closes, and you can actually have push notifications. That's 4 qualities from my standards that Android doesn't even compete with.

I'm sorry who doesn't have push notifications? My 2010 Android has push email, Facebook, text, everything. And the reason we have to "hack" for battery life is that we mod our higher specced much faster phones to be EVEN faster and the consequence of flashing software to do that is an un-calibrated battery, that has to be re-calibrated. I agree with you on the force closes but it's tough to make an app work on over 100 different Android devices. All with different screens, processors, everything... All iOS developers have to make apps for is about a handful of devices, with the vast majority of them being the iPhone.

I agree, and I know we have notifications, but our stuff is constantly syncing to our devices. With the iPhone, you can pick the intervals you want everything to sync. And its not just our processor speed, random apps enter memory for no reason at all.it is by far the worst task management I have seen on a phone. That's mix all of that with some milk and that is a s**tty bowl of cereal lmao.
