Rumored Nexus Prime Specs Leak Out: Curved 4.65″ HD Screen, New Name Too?

Only a week after a support page for the GT-19250 went live, and showed that the Nexus Prime is getting close to retail stores, now there are a few rumors floating around of what kind of specs the phone will actually have.

An anonymous tipster came to GSM Arena with a few specs about the unannounced phone. First off they said the screen would be curved just like the Nexus S and that it will only be 8.8mm thin rocking a metal chassis. The tipster confirmed the 4.65-inch screen on the phone as well. A late October launch was mentioned, which would be after the i*hone and near the time that ICS would be getting announced.

But probably the most disappointing tip that was released was that the phone might not be called the Nexus Prime after all. The tipster said that the ‘Galaxy Nexus’ would probably be more appropriate name for the device since it is coming from Samsung. Until there is an official announcement we’re going to keep using the awesome Nexus Prime logo for our stories. Sounds like we’re getting close to the end. Only a month away!

    What scares me about a Nexus phone coming to Verizon is there attachment to the Droid brand. I feel like Verizon is going to be hard pressed to release a flagship phone without the Droid branding. 

    Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the Droid branding (My phone still says DROID! and I don’t think it’s silly) but it really separates Verizon from the other carriers in what I feel is a bad way. One thing that will give the iPhone cross platform success is it is basically the exact same phone; so it gets more recognition.

    I feel like Android is starting to slow down on these software updates, which I see as a good thing. What they could do right now is release an AMAZING nexus device with a heavily refined Android 4.0 on all carriers. This way no matter what carrier you are on you can talk up this device and friends with Verizon would convince friends with AT&T to get one. Everyone would want the same super phone and sales would go through the roof!
    But, who knows if Google wants to do this with a Sammy Phone when they now own Moto. And if they do it with Moto in the next 2 years then they will be called a “monopoly”

  • RaptorOO7

    What I want is this phone on Verizon!!!!  Since it has LTE and AT&T has little to no LTE launched so far I optimistic Verizon will get it, but Verizon has only launched 1 crapware free android phone, the OG Droid.

  • Why would they have to call it Galaxy Nexus when they have a Nexus S and that isn’t a problem for them.  I think the “tipster” who only gave information that is available is a sham and just looking for 5 minutes of fame.

  • Anonymous

    All i know is that they better leak a pic or two before the iphone 5 release.   If it does have an edge-to-edge screen, you KNOW apple will sue for “copying”

  • Metal case? me like. I do really like my Nexus S but allways felt it could have had a more solid build type feeling to it, like my xoom tab. Feels like it’s built to take some abuse.

    I still kind of feel like they should go with a Droid name for this phone. Droid Prime, Droid Galaxy, whatever.

    Either way, I hope full details and pictures come out soon. Dunno if I should wait for this or get the Bionic.

    Getting sick of waiting for a new phone, getting ready to buy it, then rumors come out about another better one. I don’t need the best phone ever, but at this pace I’d still have a Moto Razr in 2020.  I almost got the Bionic, but the Charge was parked next to it, and I couldn’t get over the Samoled vs. Pentile screen.  Walked out empty handed.  May be tough since I have $200 in credits that expire 9/30…..  Vigor coming out by then?

    I really hope that when Google release ICS that theu will also release a computer back up program for us Android users like iTunes to store our apps as back up cuz I had to do a factory reset and its been a pain putting back all the apps that i downloaded cuz apperently not all of them where saves to my SD card when I did move them there. So please Google listen about thia its a pain >:|

    • Stephen

      apps downloaded from the market should restore after a factory reset bc your phone is synced with your google account.

        Yes just the purchased ones but not the free ones. But it would be nice to have this feature you know.

  • Dan Sciortino

    im just upset that it might not be called the Nexus Prime. hope that its a big rumor, but i want that big screen a little jump up from the 3.6 on the droid, any word on just 3g or is it going to be a 4g device? 

  • Stephen

    The 4.65 inch screen is not so bad considering there are not sofkeys.  Look how much more room the Bionic could have if you eliminated the keys.  Also, since it is curved, you will (very slightly) reduce the dimensions of the phone while maintaining a larger screen.

    This phone sounds sick.  I hope it’s confirmed before my upgrade in Oct.  otherwise I’m getting a bionic — It’s still a pretty nice phone…

  • Am I the only one that thinks 4.65″ is too big? I’m still waiting for something with 4″ as I believe that is the perfect size for smartphone. 

    • I think it’s too big. One of the reasons I went with the htc incredible 2 was that it wasn’t as massive as the other smart phones they had in the same price range. I think 4inches should be the limit on size, otherwise get a tablet.

    The curved screen (while not a requirement) is a big win in my opinion. I love my girlfriends Nexus S curved screen.

    • Cmonnats23

      what does a curved screen even mean?

      • Anonymous

        Go look at a nexus S sometime. the screen is actually concave (i.e. closer to you at top and bottom). It’s not enough to really notice when looking at it, but i feel like it really improves the feel of the phone.

    The Bionic is getting ripped in another article.  I almost felt a tinge of remorse.   After seeing some people whining over a 4.65″ screen I gotta say that 99.9% of opinions here or on any other Android site mean DICK.  And yeah, I am mad.  XD

    I do not know why people are just assuming that Verizon will offer a pure vanilla unbloated Nexus phone..its never going to happen. Never. Just get it out of your heads. Verizon offers Vcast-a-riffic bloatified phones. Thats what they do, that is partly how they make their money.

    Secondly Samsung makes some good things. I have a Samsung Tv, its nice. But they also make a lot of junk, like all the Galaxy S1 phones (Use to have one). They are not consistent with their products.

    I just used one upgrade on the Bionic.  I’m holding the other 2 for the Prime and the next big thing after Prime.  But if history has taught us anything it’s that the specs NEVER live up to the rumors.  The Prime is scheduled for “late” October?  Fat chance.  More like St. Patricks Day 2012.  But all we can do is wait and hope.

      Well if you’re smart you have more than 1 upgrade in your pocket.  Well that and the money to afford  more than 1 upgrade.  I have 2 more on top of the one I just used for the Bionic.  I’m more mad that the Prime isn’t out first.  Oh well.

    4.65″ is cool and all, but we still don’t know how much of that isn’t buttons and notifications bar. Also, 720p is great in theory, but so is qHd. We all tend to forget that led screens are based on a pentile matrix, and I’m pretty sure we’re all afraid of any screen getting effed up by pixelation. Yes, I bought a Bionic, only because I prefer Moto build quality and hoping for a quick ics update. Blur don’t bother me, dim leds and historically crappy software and cheap plastic build quality do. That, and I’m sure apple will be using samsung again to stop distribution of the device. I’m sure they’ll claim samsung implementation of ics violates the innovations of ios5…

      Moto uses a different type of pentile screen htc’s don’t look like that nor do the new samsung’s that showcased hd screens.

THEN I’ll be able to see em side by side and make a informed decision,along with having a month or so to see how the Bionic has progressed if it has or whether they’ve finally got the bootloader jimmied open. Compare em and then I’ll make my decision. Would be nice to have the phone I want that works well for more than a couple years. Save some $$ that way…..

      Well, we can speculate what the specs will be like.

      I say RAM & CPU will be identical to the SGSII.  Probably the battery as well.  In fact, if we assume all of the specs in that report are accurate, the ONLY potential drawbacks I forsee on this device are horrible battery life and no microHDMI port (that hideous MHL dongle instead).

      As someone who remembers my first portable cell phone (a bulky Technophone AMPS from 1995 or so, replaced by an equally heavy Moto MicroTAC), and carried a Palm OS PDA + a small flip phone for years (1 in each pocket!), I am not bothered by anything with a screen size less than 5″.  As long as it’s smaller than the Dell Streak 5, I’m OK with it. I could probably even make do with the Galaxy Note since it looks considerably sleeker than the Streak 5.

  • brandon holley

    The thing is with verizon they do put a crapton of bloatware on their phones but if you do recall no phone with android os has ever been vanilla besides the original motorola Droid and we all know that was a pure google experience. the way ICS is shaping up it seems to want to be the same vanilla experience that was with the moto droid. So when you say verizon tends to bloat things you also forget when something is truly innovative and verizon gets their hands on it. They will normally tend to let the magic happen and then everything AFTER the innovation happens then its when the icy cold fingers of big red will slap skins ontop of android, fill it with bloatware, and use bing instead of google. ok seriously BING??? am i using a google or windows phone!?!? SORRY my bad off topic……………..but seriously it should be vanilla with no bloating seen. At least thats how i look at it.

    • Anonymous

      I read an article that made an interesting point. 

      Verizon is the carrier where 2.0 was launched (OG Droid), 3.0 (Xoom, which I think has no bloat) and now 4.0 is coming. Perhaps, Verizon will follow this same formula and leave it alone. Wishful thinking, but who knows.

  • Paul Needleman

    14 days to decide if i return the bionic or not. Im not loving blur or the screen at all. miss stock on my OG.  1-2 months isnt that much longer!

    I heard it was going to be called the Galaxy Nexus as well. Name doesn’t mean too much to me, although I think the Nexus Prime sounds a bit cooler. But 4.65″ screen, no thanks. Probably going to go with the HTC Vigor now. It’ll probably get 4.0 sometime.

    • The Observer

      Um, the Vigor has a 4.5“ screen.

      If it really is VZW’s version and not the true Google Nexus Prime, I can see that it would have “Galaxy” in the title. That is Samsung’s flagship and Verizon supposedly passed on the S2 for this.

  • PyroHoltz

    With a screen measuring 4.65″ this thing is going to be a little too massive. Does ICS integrate the typical android buttons into the screen area like HC?  

    If so, then 4.65″ could be awesome, otherwise 4″ is a good size with standard capacitive buttons.

      Most likely no buttons and a small bezel. So more or less it could be the size of say an HTC Thunderbolt.

      I would assume a device smaller than Sprint’s GS2. Buttons take up way more room than that increase in screen size. I don’t understand why everyone always seems to overlook that.

      • Anonymous

        Buttons take up about a quarter of an inch, that’s not very much space.  That means the phone will be equivalent to a normal android phone with about a 4.5″ screen, so you’re looking at Samsung Infuse size.

        • Anonymous

          .15″ on a diagonal is less than .25″ as I said. Therefore smaller than the Infuse or SGSII sprint. (though not by much unless they can really trim down the bezels too.)

    • Anonymous

      I was thinking the same thing with regards to the size. I’m on the Thunderbolt right now, and 4.3″ is already pushing the limits for me in terms of screen size.

      Then I busted out my ruler.  The screen of my Thunderbolt is 4.3″ diagonally, but if measure from the top corner of the screen, to the bottom corner of the soft keys (and not the bottom of the screen) it actually looks to be just about 4.65″.  Since we all know that one of the changes with Ice Cream Sandwich will probably be the elimination of soft keys, maybe these 4.5-4.65″ screens actually are possible without making the phones much bigger.

      Can’t see anything being more of a tank than the Thunderbolt anyway…

      • StandardsDT

        Never measure screens from top to bottom. Displays are to always be measured from corner to corner.

          re-read what he wrote. 

        • Anonymous

          I’m aware, that’s what I did. I guess I could have said “but if you measure from the top [left] corner of the screen, to the bottom [right] corner of the soft keys (and not the bottom of the screen),” but I thought it was clear enough. 

          Either way, my point is that a 4.65″ screen without soft keys is about the same size as the Thunderbolt’s 4.3″ screen with soft keys.  Obviously not exact or precise measurements, and obviously aspect ratios can vary. But if it’s truly as thin as 8.8mm, and doesn’t have bigger dimensions than smaller screen phones, such as a Thunderbolt, that’s a win in my book!

          • TACOmanCHILDBOI

            Ok, 4.65″ will be huge.  That will be diagonally, and may or may not include the buttons.  Even if that does include the buttons I couldn’t imagine the buttons being more than .25″ tall, which would in turn only account for less than .25″ of the screen diagonally.  So basically, HUGE FREAKIN PHONE.  Stick to 4″ and make it thin, with all the specs we want and use a quality screen.  They keep upping the screen size and degrading the quality of the screen…ugh, get with the program!  I have an idea, how about a 4″ 720p screen with a small to no bezel around it…the perfect size.

            And before someone says it…..yeah….I’m mad bro.

  • 8.8mm? Way to thin to have LTE..well this year at least.

    • Dmnfx

      doesn’t the SGSII have LTE? 

      • Yeah, but that’s 9.49mm. Still thin, but a full 1mm thicker (no big deal). But that’s about as small as it can get.

        Of course the Verizon Nexus Prime could be thicker than the normal one.

        Sprint’s Nexus S is thicker than the regular one.

  • Anonymous

    Few things, remember that the i9250 is NOT the version that may come to Verizon…you will not get an 8.8mm LTE phone in 2011. November is much closer to the target. 

    Also the 4.65 is because there are NO buttons. It’s entirely a slate, so the phone isn’t bigger, the screen is.

      Came here to say this.  VZW will not be getting an 8.8mm LTE phone as the technology isn’t available to make it so.  The Bionic being the thinnest LTE phone available while still being a fat ass should tell you something

      • RaptorOO7

        What are you talking about.  Haven’t you seen the pics for the next Android Moto phone which is thinner than the Bionic.  Clearly it is possible and who else would be getting an LTE phone in the US?

        • John

          Believe it when it’s released.

      “‘NOT’ the version that ‘may’ come to Verizon”…..nice

        Ok, since you over read that, i9250 (GSM), SCH-i515 (CDMA/Verizon), clearer?

        • Matthew Galyon

          Just making sure you weren’t getting unsure with all of these new rumors 😉

          If you’re worried about your insider friends, why not tip off Kellex and ask to be cited as anonymous rather than chatting it up in every comment thread?  Seems like the best road to take (not that I don’t enjoy the piecemeal that you’ve been feeding us 🙂

  • Is it going to be released through Verizon?

      I hope so no bloatware or Verizon junk to slow down the phone 😛

      • Anonymous

        If they are making one just for Verizon, i would think there would be bloatware. But who knows it could be different for the CDMA and LTE chip.

        samsung is easy to root and get rid of the bloatware.

    • It better be released for Verizon! Droid-Life is covering all the details of it and usually stays exclusive to phones coming from Verizon! @KELLEX where are you on this?

    The tipster confirmed the 4.65-inch insertion… er, screen*

    • I feel like we should all get one and then all flash the Prime boot animation as a show of faith.

      Agreed.  Stop trying to push your Galaxy brand on everything Samsung.

      so the name matters how to the phone? 

  • I don’t care if it is called the Nexus Dingleberry.  I just want it to have the specs that we are all hoping for.

    • DroidTrain

      Personally I think ‘Nexus Galaxy’ sounds better than ‘Galaxy Nexus’…but Nexus Dingleberry has a nice to ring to it as well.

      But I agree…don’t care about the name, just want the specs, ICS, and a release date.

      • palomosan

        Agree, all I want is a freaking Nexus, I don’t care what is called.

      i can’t believe this ,I just got a $829.99 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use http://xub.me/ab

      I think the Nexus Dingleberry would be a much more fitting name for the iPhone 5.  

      • True true.

      • Adam Elghor

        more like the the iDingleberry

    4.65? i’d take a wvga 4.3 over an HD 4.65, that’s just way too big

    • Anonymous

      That’s the only 4.65″ item in my pocket I EVER want described as way too big. 

      • HYPER BEAST

        That’s what he said!!! Wait…. She said… Nope, he said…

    • You have to remember that there will be no capacitive buttons (at least that’s the rumor) so it won’t feel as big.

    • Anonymous

      It’s like people don’t pay attention. 4.65″ with no buttons is probably equivalent dimensions to a current 4.3 smartphone.

    • Anonymous

      With menu buttons in the UI, physical dimensions of the phone will likely be the same as any other on the market. 

  • Anonymous

    Can. Not. Wait. Not sure about 4.65″ but if it’s that thin and has a very small bezel on top and bottom it won’t be too bad. If it’s that big it better not be 480×800…

    • There was a report out last night that the 480×800 thing was just a placeholder picture and wasn’t actually the resolution. Whew. 

  • At this point I don’t care what you call it, just spec the crap out of it.

      I like “Nexus Prime” the best, “Droid Prime” sounds okay, but if Samsung really wants to force their branding on it, “Nexus S II” makes a lot more sense than “Galaxy Nexus.”

    I still doubt end of October when they haven’t even announced ICS yet.

    I would put money on end of nov, early dec.

    • Anonymous

      Uh, they still have plenty of time to announce the OS between now and the end of October.

    • I’m Kick-Ass!

      STOP pissing on the rumor parade!
