Samsung Nexus Prime gets full frontal exposure, Android Ice Cream Sandwich too
posted by Daniel P. / Oct 07, 2011, 5:08 AM
phone that Verizon supposedly passed on the Galaxy S II for, to get some exclusivity over as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
The leak is coming from Romania this time and there is a video as well - it seems that we are indeed witnessing what might be the first glimpse of Android Ice Cream Sandwich, if this leak holds water, and the future seems bright.
to solve the 5MP or 8MP dilemma once and for all, but Tuesday is close enough. The source actually says that the back is plastic, imitating metal in two shades of brown, and that the battery cover is similar to the one on the Samsung Galaxy S II, which is a bit off with what we've heard so far about the chassis, so there might still be another version floated when time comes.While the front is interesting, it would be great to see the rumored metal back and curved chassis up close and personal, not to mention
Samsung GALAXY Nexus OS: Android 4.3, 4.2.2, 4.2.1, 4.2, 4.1.2, 4.1, 4.0.4, 4.0.1, 4.0 View Full specs

Too elongated!! The icons are not appealing but other than that, that is the most sexiest and most fluid UI i have ever seen. AND I WANT ONE NOW!!!

Same here... Not a big fan of the new icons but everything else is blowing my mind! And I have a feeling that other non-amoled displays aren't gonna look good with ICS (on screen buttons). With superamoled, the blacks kind of blend in with the plastic so it looks good and meshes well together... but with a LCD display i don't think it will look too good. C'mon HTC, trust samsung and go back to amoled!

who said it wasnt for sprint? there is a RUMORED VZW exclusivity window. If that is true or not, that has nothing to do with it coming out on other carriers. I got a feeling this phone will be on all carriers. Who would pass it up??

Absolutely beautiful. Between the curved screen and the the fluid of ICS (assuming this is all real) That phone is def. the one im getting. Is it me or does a lot of the motion look as fluid as that other guy...you know..the um..fruit ppl.

Not looking to bribe, but it looks as fluid as my G2x running 2.3.3. I'm loving the looks of ICS though, and the Nexus Prime's shape and AMOLED+ICS combo make for a very sleek phone.

it doesnt? does it just look small in the video? so the row of "buttons" on the bottom is actually part of the screen, right? do they ever go away? (like when watching video or playing full screen games?) if not, wouldnt that mess up the screen ratio? i dont think they would do that.

True, that's one thing I hated about Honeycomb, the UI bar wastes the screen and you can go into true full screen. I hope the UI bar auto hides and you can make it reappear with a motion swype over the screen.
