Although it hasn't been officially announced yet, the Samsung Nexus Prime has already been listed as “coming soon” by an online cellphone retailer based in Singapore. The much anticipated smartphone has its own spot on the retailer's web page where the majority of its tech specs are listed and a handful of photos hint at what the device should look like when it launches.
According to SGBEST
– the guys that added the Nexus Prime
to their online store, the first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device will have a 4.65-inch display with 720 by 1280 pixels of resolution, which coincides with what some speculations are pointing at
. The listing also mentions the existence of a 5-megapixel camera on the smartphone's back capable of shooting 1080p video.
What we find interesting, however, is that a dual-core Exynos chipset clocked at 1.5GHz, presumably the Exynos 4212
, will power the Nexus Prime instead of the TI OMAP 4460, if the listing is to be believed. Another spicy detail is that the smartphone should have a multi-mode 3G/4G radio on board combining HSPA, LTE, and EV-DO Rev. A connectivity. Its battery should also leave a good impression as it will allegedly have a capacity of 2050 mAh.
Sadly, the photos that the retailer has used are nothing we haven't seen so far. One of them is a cutout from that Nexus Prime hands-on video
, the other is a crop from that Samsung teaser
, and the third shot looks suspiciously familiar to the well-known Nexus S. That leads us to believe that the retailer could be just trying to get attention by using the hype around the Samsung Nexus Prime. Or could the listed tech specs be on the right track after all? We lean towards option “A” for the time being, yet the truth will surface as soon as the Nexus prime gets announced officially.
