Photoshop magic brings a clearer picture of the Samsung Nexus Prime

Photoshop magic brings a clearer picture of the Samsung Nexus Prime
Samsung has promised big. The company teased us with what looks like the Samsung Nexus Prime ready for its official unveiling on October 11th, but some crafty Photoshop work reveals the Nexus Prime beforehand. As you probably remember, the handset appeared in an ad, showing off its concave (banana-shaped, if you prefer) body and curved display in a way similar to the Nexus S.

Yet there was a trio of mysterious lights on the right of the phone and except for the well lit center of the device, the rest remained in the dark. Greyhaven7 took on the task to enhance the image and the result looks reveals the rest of what is expected to be the first phone with Ice Cream Sandwhich.

You can see a distinct chin on the lower back, if that indeed is the device’s bottom part as it would have been on the similar Nexus S. On the upper back, there’s a small hunch, most probably for the camera. Putting the Nexus Prime puzzle together, we should also remember previous whispers about the phone coming with a 4.65" display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. And that’s all we have so far, but there’s less than a week until next Tuesday, so it won’t be too much of a wait, would it?

Exactly, this looks like a piece of art. This is a true mixture of art meets technology. It's a very sexy looking device. Samsung is on fire & is taking the mobile design to another level. Samsung makes great components, but are implementing those components it in avant-garde ways! Thus the Google Nexus Prime!

I hear this Google Nexus Prime will have some metal. Again I could be wrong but that is what "they" are saying!

i know its not gonna happen, but i thought that metallic render of the nexus1 look alike for the prime was sexy. I dont really care..if it has exynos 1.5ghz and ICS im sold..

I suspect that the upcoming D-C 1.5GHzs are going to destroy the iPhone 5.

That screen is huge! It's over a Hand (; more than a third of a foot! Wow. What's next... a screen a seventh of a yard big?!

I'm still getting used to phones bigger than one decicubit.

i agree.. i find 4' screen size to be apt. it fits comfortably in hand and is big enough. though SE arc and htc sensation has worked hard to increase the size of screen to 4.2' and yet keep the same size of 4' phone..sammy has kept increasing the vertical growth of phone. but that again is a personal taste.

Agreed. I think newer HTC devices like the Sensation, EVO 3D and Vigor are the perfect size - they kept the width of a 4" screen but stretched it to full 16:9. Others prefer fatter phones like the EVO and Thunderbolt. Another matter of taste. At least we have options!

Unveiling is not the same as being available for purchase.... I hope this is available for purchase in the U.S. sooner than it took for the GSII.

Really? Awesome. I don't know why I thought it would be overseas first. Hope it comes to AT&T soon!!!!!

rumor is VZW is getting some kind of exclusivity.. which at this point i doubt.. or at least hope not. Tmo has launched every nexus thus far so i doubt they will be left out in the cold for launch. Sprint will want it asap.. hopefully ATT has learned their lessons and sells it right away too instead of waiting till its nearly irrelevant like last time.

everyone except verizon wont be getting the pone until later.thts why verizon doesnt has an s2 device is so it can gain exclusivity for the nexus for some time

Even if it's only 3 months exclusivity, that gets them through the holiday sea$on.

It doesn't look like the hump at the top and bottom is part of the phone. Heard someone say there will be a tablet it will dock into similar to the Asus Padfone. We can only hope...

Photoshoped image shows that screen is far less curved than video suggested, because of extended glowing line that emphasized it. This is pretty good curvature, maybe more than Nexus S but not too much, just the right amount.

*crossing my fingers whispering* "Verizon...Verizon...Verizon..."

you don't need to wish/hope... If the rumors hold true (which they are looking quite so), it will be exclusive to verizon as the droid prime.

concidering how many iphone rumors proved to be crap, i wouldnt put too much stock in nexus rumors just to keep from getting your hopes too high, lest we end up with our own "Iphone4S" drama

would've been better if HTC manufactured it.

Posts: 14605; Member since: Dec 19, 2008

no, then it wouldnt have access to exynos 2nd gen chips nor super amoled HD, which are the 2 stand out features of this phone other than ICS. Noone comes close to samsung when it comes to tech advancements.

yea you're right, i just based my thoughts on the nexus one and nexus s.. never heard any major issues with the nexus one and nexus s is a dissapointment..
