Next Samsung Unpacked set for CTIA on October 11th
The next Samsung Unpacked event is now set for October 11th, which happens to be the opening day for the upcoming CTIA show in San Diego. The one major announcement that Verizon customers have been waiting for is the introduction of the Google Nexus Prime aka the Samsung DROID Prime aka the device that made Big Red reject the Samsung Galaxy S II. And the excitement over that device is not limited to Verizon customers as a GSM variant is widely expected after an exclusivity period for Verizon ends.

Although it is not due until the first half of 2012, perhaps some more information about the Samsung Galaxy S III will come out at the event. As we reported, an anonymous 4Chan poster who saw images of the phone left a memorable run down of the amazing specs that could be on the handset. More likely, though, with the speculation of a November 3rd launch of the Google Nexus Prime for Verizon, it is probable that we will be getting more info about that beast.

The Google Nexus Prime is supposedly equipped with a 4.65 inch screen with 720 x 1280 resolution, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. 16GB of storage can be bumped up to as much as 48GB using a microSD card while a 2000mAh battery powers the device. Of course, Ice Cream Sandwich is expected to run the show.

Samsung released a free app for its last Unpacked event in Berlin during the IFA. We would imagine that the Korean based manufacturer will do so again for this upcoming event, shortly.

Does anyone know if the TI OMAP processor in this one is faster than the GSII? I'm guessing even though it's a higher clockspeed, that it still won't be any better. But, then again I don't have anything to go by besides benchmark tests from the Droid with a 1 GHZ dual-core.

Unfortunately, the OMAP4 is slower than the Exynos in pretty much every area. Most benchmarks and real world testing e.g. like browser performance, seem to support my claim. I've never used either, but Check out youtube videos on the GS2 and you will see just how smooth and quick it is compared to devices like the Bionic and D3.

Which is why I won't get it if it has the current Gen OMAP

That's what I thought. I mean, in that case, people would just be buying this because it will have Ice Cream Sandwich and the high res screen. Unless, like you said, it gets the next generation TI OMAP.

Well, i dont think the Exynos supports LTE so i would expect the verizon variant to be different then the rest. I really hope ATT gets it and with the Exynos processor. if so, i'm getting this phone hands down.

I'm hoping that the extra time put in will enable them to get the Exynos/LTE kinks out...I would be quite upset if Red's Version doesn't have the Exynos.
Then again, I will also be unhappy if it doesn't support LTE...

I agree, i will be very upset if it doesn't have Exynos in it. if it doesn't i might go SG2 and put ICS on it instead. I mean the HD screen would be great, but I want high performance more so in the end...doesn't matter how good the screen looks if it lags while doing stuff like widgets and scrolling then it will still annoy me.

if you want an HD screen and Exynos processor go for the Galaxy Note

I can't wait to see what this device is all about and I can't wait to see what ICS looks like.

ICS is expected to debut at CTIA also, So this event could be the debut of the Prime. I dont expect much gadgets to debut, because thats for MWC and another CTIA next year.
