Nexus Prime of Samsung make regurgitated for October landing in all its Super AMOLED HD glory

Nexus Prime of Samsung make regurgitated for October landing in all its Super AMOLED HD glory
Following yesterday's reports that Samsung has mastered the Super AMOLED HD technology with current production methods, but new materials and clever PenTile matrix gymnastics, comes another rumor that the Nexus Prime will carry such screen.

Google's next poster child for Android Ice Cream Sandwich is to indeed sport a 720x1280 pixels 4.5" screen, which should be a sight unseen, considering the Super AMOLED technology. Utlization of the PenTile matrix means details won't be as distinct as they would be with a normal RGB one, but there will be more than enough pixel density to compensate.

The Korean source also regurgitated the rest of the info we've already heard about the Nexus Prime, like a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and October release. Considering that all these numerous sources point to Samsung as the manufacturer of Google's next reference Android phone, it will be interesting to see how the rumored powerful TI OMAP 4460 chipset is implemented.

Another interesting tidbit is that the Korean SK Telecom allegedly also plans to launch the Nexus Prime in its portfolio, which seemingly confirms the rumor that the phone might come to multiple carriers, instead of the usual boutique availability.

If you want a much slower pace of bringing features to market, you should switch to an iPhone.

no they bitch because apple releases the same phone with minor updates every year and is normally a year behind in tech when it launches anyways. i cant wait to put your prized iphone5 up against a galaxy2, much less the nexus prime. Your gonna cry. :)

The iPhone 4 had better benchmarks than the SGS1. The iPad 2 has better benchmark scores than the Tab 10.1. What makes you think the SGS2 is better than the iPhone hardware-wise. The Apple A5 is supposed to be a more efficient version of the Exynos chip that is in the SGS2 (european and asian versions). The US may get the Tegra 2 version, which would make it even slower than phones like the Evo 3D.

the iphone4 had better benchmarks? can you go find that benchmark on android and iOS that your talking about please. also, the iphone4 and Galaxy USE THE SAME HARDWARE, except that whole.. samsung gave the older version of hummingbird to apple and kept the slighty stronger version for itself.. lol. The ipad2 uses a slightly scaled down version of exynos, not a scaled up version. Samsung keeps the best iterations for itself. The US SGS2 is getting the exynos chip. The tegra2 is meant for smaller countries and non prime markets. Tegra2 is a stronger chip than the scorpion dual core found in the evo3D You havent one bit of factual knowlege in your statement. go home and study.

Only crying I'll be doing is the tears of laughter at you, Sniggles, and the rest of the Andrones trying to justify wasting money on a crappy Android device that'll be abandoned in six months.

or led notifications....

9. Confused unregistered

so what is the better display? 720 PenTile Nexus Prime or 480 RGB Galaxy SII The PenTile has better resolution but the RGB is supposed to be a better technology?

the 720p display should be better. Pentile is not as well "liked" because it didnt sport a great pixel density on older amoled devices. The new screen is supposed to have a much higher pixel density so it shouldnt be as noticable. Man.. now im torn again.. since the hercules might actually have an exynos in it (judging by its benchmarks) i dunno if i should wait or not.. lol. SGS2 or Nexus Prime?

11. Pays daily unregistered

I was going to get the SGII, but since hearing some of the spec for the prime I will be getting it, if all the spec are up to my standards....

12. LTE unregistered

but.. will it have LTE?!?! Requirement for me. Also.. do ANY of the Samsung phones have LED notification lights? There is NO way I can see purchasing a phone without one. I live by that little light! I don't see how anyone can get along without having the notification light! turn your phone on frequently to check for messages??

i hope i comes to sprint i am due for an upgrade

14. zach unregistered

Yeah no kidding I hope it comes to sprint to cause I need an upgrade, but they probably won't cause well its sprint..... That's why I want to switch to tmobile cause there cheaper and have better phones, and I just can't deal with sprints service lately.

Then samsung will make: Super AMOLED HD + Super AMOLED qHD Super AMOLED qHD + lol jk, who knows? It would be cool if it does happen.

29. Matt unregistered

lol, a qHD display has a resolution of 960×540 pixels. I dont see how Samsung would "upgrade" from 1280x720 to 960x540. Most likely upgrade would be a 1280x720 RGB display. After that we'll probably see the bendy displays go into mass production. On a side note, this phone will probably be the same size as the current Galaxy S2 since it wouldnt need the hardware buttons.

30. Matt unregistered

btw anyone know when Apple puts in an order for these "magical" displays?? LOL
