Are these the first Nexus Prime camera samples?

The Samsung Nexus Prime might have been delayed from an October 11th unveiling, but today is the day when we’re looking at what could be the first sample images taken with the camera of the Prime. Published on Google Plus, images by a mysterious “Galaxy Nexus” device have been downsized to the 3-megapixel default format of the social network but chances are that they were shot on the yet unofficial Nexus Prime.
“Galaxy Nexus.” The only other possible phone is the Nexus Prime.There are two previous Nexus phones - the HTC-made Nexus One and the Samsung-made Nexus S, both of which wouldn’t be referenced as
Samsung and Google were expected to announce the new phone along with a major rework of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, but cancelled in the last minute referring to Steve Jobs’ passing as the official reason. Russian analyst Eldar Murtazin, though, disagrees and says that Google is actively removing features from ICS, all in connection with Apple patent claims, so go figure.
But back to the images, how do you fing the quality of the camera?

realize that these were also uploaded to G+. When you upload pictures via G+ it compresses them. I've had excellent pictures look mediocre after the compression This was a comment taken from another site Jamerson90

I read on another site the the galaxy nexus is the same thing as the nexus prime, not sure if that's accurate, but I believe it. And so how can we judge the quality of a camera by identifying images that have been downsized?

i agree,i personally don't understand what one has to do with the other.if anyone can tell me what Steve Jobs death/funeral has to do with announcing a samsung/google phone i am all ears. isn't apple launching their new iOS AND a new phone this week?? so the case will be made that "apple is moving on with their new phone and iOS in memory of him" and everyone else is "delaying things in memory of him"..LOL!! if they didn't push back what they have going on then why should anyone else delay anything...let alone a simple announcement?? does anyone actually think that apple would delay the smallest thing for any reason like this...NO!! i don't want to sound cold and heartless but come on guys and gals this is silly,there either has to be something else or this is just weak in my humble opinion.

seems alright. The second picture is crazy over exposed

Both photos look fine, there is no over exposure in either. In fact that is a very natural look that you would actually see with your own eyes. This is how a camera is supposed to function. It is only supposed to replicate what you are seeing with your eyes so you seemingly can't tell the difference. That is one hell of a sensor, the colors don't even get washed out with all that light being refracted off the sticky notes at different angles in relation to the camera. Probably a canon lens and sensor.
