Samsung Nexus Prime mockup appears, looks realistic
The Samsung Nexus Prime is probably the single most anticipated handset after the iPhone, and, luckily, it’s only a couple of days until it gets officially announced on Tuesday as everyone hopes. The rumor mill has churned for the Prime and just like for Apple’s handset, rumors are now conflicting each other with BGR on one hand claiming that the phone will be a Verizon exclusive and come with a 5-megapixel camera, which doesn’t match most hopes and expectations.

On the other hand, GSM Arena, which “coincidentally” got the first image of the Nexus Prime screen the same day the iPhone was announced, has come up to clarify the situation and contradict BGR by saying it will be an 8-megapixel camera after all, but also points out a bigger and better battery, and dual-core graphics.

We’ve put the discrepancies side-to-side to make if all clear, but there’s one thing to unite the two rumor lines - a realistic mockup of the Nexus Prime appeared on Tumblr just hours ago, so take a look and get ready for October 11th. CTIA looks to be hot this fall.

I think BGR's might be true because google will have tailored ice cream sandwich to a lower processor so as to help all dual-cores achieve equal performance instead of opting for an exynos and leaving everything else under-powered to some level. The fact that TI OMAP is at the bottom of the dual core food chain makes this more probable.

I have a feeling BGR might be right as well. Hopefully were wrong...

I think they might be right because the TI OMAP processor already is proven with LTE, the camera module seems completely wrong though.

I cant consider TI OMAP at the BOTTOM of the dual core food chain but it defenitly isnt the top.

BGR seems like the right one exept for the camera specs and hopefully the bat specs

Actually, Exynos > OMAP 4430 > (by a bit) Tegra2 > Snapdragon S3.

It's mid-high tier. This is also rumored to have the new 4460, so who knows how that'll fare compared to the Exynos.

The silver border on the front doesn't match the side view, but not bad, not bad. I'm expecting a solid black front like the Nexus S.

I think they will put the best possible components in it that they can. If rumor two is correct with the exnose chip and power vr this phone will sell millions and probably be the best selling phone for awhile

2050 mAh battery in a phone that slim is kind of pushing it a little. But I sure hope I'm proved wrong! This will definitely be my next phone! :)

The battery is going to have to be curved too. Weird. Just hope it has hdmi out w/ mirror mode and that an external battery charger is optional.

over at samsung... "The exyno chip, a bigger battery, and a better gpu might sell too well and we won't know what to do with all that money, perhaps we should release a phone that is just as good as all the other ones..."

over at motorola "Faster processor, faster ram, faster gpu.. I have an idea!! Lets add more pixels!! (the boss enters the room) Ok you can add more pixels but only under one condition, we have to make it seem like we added less pixels... Pentile DISPLAY FTW!!!

over at apple "With all the new powerful smartphones coming out, giving us such great competition, this would be the perfect time to release the iphone 4 again"

over at verizon "Hey these Ahole customers who have been with us for years are saving money by using an unlimited data plan" "THAT IS PROPOSTEROUS, who do they think they are trying to save money, SCRATCH THE UNLIMTED DATA PLAN, THESE PEOPLE ARE THIEVES" Ok this is what we will do, we will charge 40 dollars a month for 1gb of data. "but sir that is only about one facebook page check" SILENCE!!! I AM SICK AND TIRED OF BEING REASONABLE, CUT THE RETURN POLICY IN HALF WHILE YOUR AT IT!! ARGHHH!H
