Samsung Prime Headed to Verizon First in Late October, Looks Like a Bigger Nexus S?

Another minute, another Samsung Prime rumor to snack on.  Our buddy Kyle (aka the Droid Guy) is in Las Vegas attending Verizon’s developer conference this week.  While there, he bumped into a Samsung employee of some sort who happened to have an unidentified device on hand that has not been seen – publicly anyway.  After talking the Sammie staffer into taking their conversation about this phone into a private area, Kyle was told that he had to remove his bag, hat and phone before they could proceed.  He obliged.

So what did he see?  A device that we have  all come to know as the Samsung Prime.  According to this report, the device looked similar to the Nexus S, but was longer and slightly thicker which could (should) mean for an LTE chip.  It was not running Ice Cream Sandwich as that has not been completed yet.  It had an 8MP camera on the back with a 2MP shooter on the front, similarly to the Galaxy SII series.  It had NFC and MHL support along with a TI OMAP processor (which has been confirmed).

The current plan is for Samsung and Google to release this phone first on Verizon in late October or early November, followed by the rollout to other carriers shortly thereafter.

The thing we are finding odd though, is that the device apparently had a single home button similar to what we have seen on the Galaxy Note or non-US Galaxy SII devices.  Would Google really take a chance on a device with a single home button that mimics the iPhone?  Look at all of the trouble that Samsung has already been in for this design – please tell me this will change when this thing becomes official.

Thoughts?

    and like the Nexus S, this Nexus will also be missing an SD card slot.

    • James_Ever

      It may this time or at least have 48gb on it. Just have to wait for the complete list of specs.

    The home button makes sense, the phone it a prototype build right now running not ICS. Very likely the phone will loose that when it becomes the official build (isn’t ICS supposed to be able to be touch interface only or virtual button driven?) so since it has such a large screen i wouldn’t be surprised to see the phone go to a full touch interface. Same thing with the design, its just a prototype shell designed to look like a Nexus S as to not allow any leaks of what it will look like and to maybe fool the average person to thinking that it is a Nexus S.

    All i know is that verizon needs to to come out with a samsung superphone soon, the charge isent even a option anymore. Also the bionic is gonna get really old when the GS2 comes out, not to mention a bunch of Pissed off Verizon customers( including me)

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MRXKXFO5F7NVWFJHNZFO7NEHVY Big R

      The Cryonic is not even as good as the SGS2 phone that went out internationally.  VZW should have scrapped Bionic and taken the SGS2.  The reason they didn’t was most likely part of the purchase details. 

  • Hdub32

    The Droid guy bet me $50 on twitter that this is the real deal, i still call BS tho . This is the most anticipated phone of the year, and all he basically tells us is that it looks like a nexus s, but taller, and has a home button. Cmon!

    The first time I ever heard about the prime I thought it was too good to be true… It’s starting to seem like i was right to be skeptical. I bet it will turn out to be a dual-core charge. No vanilla ICS w/ unlocked bootloader for Verizon.

    I thought it was a virtual home button, not an actual home button. At least that’s the way I read it.

    I can’t imagine then, that this device could even consider launching w/ICS if it indeed does launch in October or November.  Another month to a month-and-a-half ONLY of testing ICS?  I would think more time would be necessary to work out the kinks and bugs found; and then to fix them.  Just my opinion though…

    • http://profiles.google.com/gonnadie4thegov Jeremy Wray

      ICS is prob in testing now and they are working the bugs out. But its very unlikely that they would allow anyone outside of Google and high up the pole in Samsung to be walking around with an OS that really we have no info about. Its just asking for a leak. Like here if dude would have had it then we’d have a story about what ICS looked like and what maybe some new noticable features were.

  • Joshua Dudash

    I thought the point of ics was that is was buttonless… regardless or soft or hard. 
    Sure it will be removed as it was mentioned that the phone did not have ics on it. (thus necessitating the need of at least 1 button.

  • http://profiles.google.com/desmet2006 Alex Fischer

    I say we still wait and see what happens.  Remember there are two different model numbers (sch-i515 for Verizon and gt-i9250)  I’m inclined to believe that the droid guy saw the sch model that was coming to verizon and not the Nexus Prime.

    I still think it will be an OG Droid / Nexus One thing, wherein Android 2.0 came to Verizon first and the Nexus One hit later with 2.1

    If it doesn’t have support for an sd card I’ll pass. If i want a phone that I can’t add to the storage I’ll get an iphone.

    But will it have a notification light? PLEASE Samsung. It’s a tiny little LED. You have to have a few laying around unused.

    I call bs. I doubt the phone the man had was a Samsung prime. it was probably another Samsung phone because I doubt it will be thicker then a Nexus s or have that stupid physical home button.

    • http://profiles.google.com/gonnadie4thegov Jeremy Wray

      But the phone wasn’t running ICS, there is a need for atleast one button with Gingerbread. Likely a prototype model with a faux shell that will never see it past testing. Sammy just doesn’t want info leaking out about what the phone looks like yet, just like Google doesn’t wanna show ICS yet.

  • Anonymous

    there cant be a button on the front it would go against the look of all nexus things. i agree with @WrlsFanatic:disqus that its probably going to be removed (assuming this is true) for launch. the mhl sounds sweet and i would love to see that in more phones. and as for the size, lte cant fin in a 8.8mm i would rather my beast a little husky than miss out on lte and all the other goodies.

    • http://profiles.google.com/gonnadie4thegov Jeremy Wray

      You are talking about 2 different companies, and this is (supposedly) a Google Experience phone so I’m sure they are pretty strict about who knows what so info isn’t leaked out. Bionic was also delayed about 9 months remember too, so plenty of time for info to leak from when it was releaved in Jan

    • DroidPrimeTime

      A big unanswered question is- will this phone trump all others by including a Super AMOLED HD screen, essentially blowing away Super AMOLED Plus???

      • DroidPrimeHD

        I agree, this needs to be Super AMOLED HD to be a stand out as all of the SGSII phones are already plus.  Also needs to include an NFC chip and MHL would really make this a true superphone!

      No offense to the dl user that made the logo, but I’m with Fortitudine.  If that logo was plastered on the back, I’d probably have to get a case (standard black, of course).  Transformers was after my time.  I grew up with Star Wars, and the R2-D2 Droid was also of no interest.

    I don’t get why everyone associates the Nexus Prime with Optimus Prime just because it has the word “Prime” in it. If that phone were to represent any Transformer, then it should be NEXUS PRIME, not Optimus. If it was called the Nexus Optimus, I then could see why.

    • Anonymous

      Apparently you have never watched Transformers.  If you had, you would have heard Megatron refer to Optimus Prime as simply “Prime” on a number of occasions.  Also, since it’s technically a title (Optimus is only one of several original primes), throwing the name Prime after Nexus or Droid essentially gives this phone a title that indicates it’s the best of the best.  Until we get confirmed specs, we can’t know for sure, but at this point it’s no surprise at all that the name is being associated with Optimus.  What’s more surprising is why the LG Optimus phones didn’t catch on in that manner, but that can likely be explained away by the fact that LG Android phones aren’t all that great.

    • Nate Surber

      Yeah, I’m totally sure that people would be able to make the Transformers reference association if the logo had some D-List expanded universe character in it instead of one of the most iconic fictional characters of the past 30 years.  Moto should have made a R5-D4 Droid2 instead of the R2-D2 version.  They would have sold a ton of them.

    Google has been stockpiling plenty of legal ammunition recently, and I don’t doubt that this device has a lot fewer buttons due to on screen buttons o ICS. I don’t think there’s too awful much to worry about, because if it looks like the Nexus S but bigger, its shaped completely different from the iPhone. The Galaxy phones (both the first gen and the second) have very iPhone-like profiles to them as well as the singular home button and a UI that screams iOS ripoff.

  • rothnic

    I wouldn’t worry about the button. Companies usually play around with different designs like that and end up as engineering samples for developers.

  • Scott Hartman

    I expect it to be buttonless (that’s the only way they get the screen size necessary for 720p into a popular handset size), but since there’s no ICS yet the prototypes have buttons.  I wouldn’t panic.

    • Anonymous

      Agreed, sounds like early prototype at best.

  • Dominick

    Dont like the idea of not having buttons, or just one button like the iPhone. Stupid. I want a 4.5-5 inch gorilla glass edge to edge (side to side and top if possible) glass on the device so no where to get lint and more screen real estate, with dual or quad core, nice HD lcd (720p or higher NON led), 16-32gb internal memory, good gpu, 1GB ram, micro sd slot, actual multitasking like the Playbook, good phone radio, good removable battery, 4G, good sliding vertical qwerty, HDMI out, non cheap soft touch or metal casing that is hard to scratch, with a GOOD UI, system wide equalizer that has IMPRESSIVE sound, good bass, a real powerhouse that can handle pretty much anything like the Playbook can from flash games in Facebook to whatever else.. etc for Verizon.. I don’t like TouchWiz at all. Looks like the iPhones OS. Motoblur isn’t that horrible, but cmon something impressive, not something you want to cover with a skin after an hour of owning it. The Vigor will have crappy phone radio, less than HD proportions on the screen, HTC Sense, crappy battery life and not expecting a great screen quality. Bleh.

    • Anonymous

      the vigor should have a nice hd screen from rumors. less than hd proportions? WTF are you talking about?

      • Dominick

        Its supposed to be the Thunderbolt 2, thought the specs stated it had the same screen SIZE as the Thunderbolt. It may have better RESOLUTION but the proportions of the Thunderbolt screen being more wide than long, means it will cut off parts of a video/movie like an older tv would in comparison to an HDTV. Im speaking about proportions not necessarily resolution.. but I don’t expect it to be all that great.. or as “great” quality wise as the Thunderbolts (or on the same level as a crappy pentile found in the Droid 3, Droid X2) which looks worse than the Droid Xs.

    Did everyone miss the part where the phone was NOT RUNNING ICS?! They might have had to put a home button on the prototype just to QC the thing. They could still take off the button after ICS is released.

      So it can be like a reset or reboot button?

        No, I mean it could be a home button!  Take your Android phone and try to use it without using any buttons at the bottom. I’ll bet you find you need at least a back or home button.

          @WrlsFanatic:disqus I think Blood is asking if the button will be eventually turned into a reset/reboot button, etc, when it get released w/ ICS.
          @a777f20916dffa5ae7cd7dc19be20cc4:disqus WrIsFanatic is merely saying that the button is ONLY in the prototype design because ICS isn’t on the phone yet, and that in the finalized hardware with ICS the button will not exist at all. I believe, anyway.

        • Jason

          I love having the 4 buttons on my OG! I have played around with someones i*hone and it was very frustrating to only have that home button. It is alot more natural to use the back button on the bottom than to find it on the screen. It may just be that I am used to the 4 buttons but I did not like the single home button at all.

          • John

            Agreed.. I like the 4 buttons, but I’ll reserve judgement until I see how buttonless ICS functions.  There will absolutely have to be a back button somewhere in the interface though because many apps currently rely on the physical back button.. unless they’re crappy ports from i*hone with a UI back button.  

          • Anonymous

            The buttons will work like on Honeycomb. You’ll have your menu, back, home, and search buttons. The difference will be that these four buttons will be software controlled and placed in areas that are more consistent with where apps wish to place them.

    Yea, I figured Google wouldn’t be able to pull off a buttonless phone. Also, I dislike the fact that the phone is thicker than the Nexus S. I was hoping for something similar to the GSII. As usual, I’ll just have to wait and see, but this makes me lean towards the HTC Vigor a little bit more.

        The current version of android on tablets has digital buttons instead of real/capacitive buttons.  Google HAS said that they want to combine the platforms so one version of Android will run everywhere.  It is safe to assume that there won’t be buttons.

        So no, I wasn’t just looking to the rumors.

      Maybe there are two different groups of people testing, one group testing the hardware and the other testing/developing the software. Remember those Ice Cream Sandwich leaks running on a Nexus S? Maybe this guy is just testing the hardware for radio stuff, and others are testing Ice Cream Sandwich in isolated environments or something, and / or running on the Nexus S. I don’t know, this does seem a little off compared to all the other posts. The rumors seem to be split down the middle, half are saying October launch, the other half are saying mid to late November launch with announcement in October. It’s just getting confusing.

  • Matthew Morrison

    well you would think the 1 home button design will change once ice cream sandwich is done and running on it as there is no need for physical buttons anymore with ICS, or as the rumors say at least

          Without the details on the radio being used being released (unless I missed them) we don’t know if it has to be any thicker than a 3G phone.  Or to put it another way I would assume Apple will never release a thicker iPhone, so if they are going 4G there there is a 3G size option out there.

            They won’t.. Samsung makes extremely thin phones, but they were only get the SGII LTE (that won’t be coming to the US) down to just a hair under 10mm thick.  Apple will NOT be releasing a 10mm thick phone.

        All previous reports claim it will be an LTE device. There is no way it can be close to 8.8mm if it’s using a first-gen LTE chip. We’d have to wait until summer next year before we see 9mm thick LTE phones.

        There are lots of reasons for these adjustments, though. First of all, it’s clearly going to be an early-alpha testing device. The metal chasis may have interference problems w/ the chipset, maybe they’re testing out the plastic case to see where improvements may be made. Along with that, the thickness would quickly be affected by the inclusion of a plastic chassis, probably just enough to be noticably thicker than the Nexus S.

        We know so few actual details right now, and the build is so early that it’s incredibly hard to really peg what we’re looking at with this device.

    Interesting… the original Droid came out November 6th 2009 (Which was a Friday, not a Thursday as now usual)… and the Prime is now rumored to be coming out at the same time… Anyone else think this is a true successor to the OG Droid (Sans keyboard, but with unlocked bootloader)

    I think November 3rd sounds like a good release date (Note: Not backed up by anything)

      Now that I think about it, I think it would be more likely to have a Nov.10 release date… If the Vigor comes out Oct.6th, as rumored, then it would be out of the 30 day exchange… As I continue to think about it, it doesn’t seem like Verizon would release a phone that early in the month.

        Except VZW doesn’t have a 30-day exchange policy anymore. Unless I’m mistaken, they changed it down to 15 days at the same time as all those other *mysterious* changes they made when they brought the iPh*ne on.

      It’s a Nexus device, I don’t care too much about the button but I would prefer it without it.

        It won’t be a nexus branded device.

      Well this is Google you know. Always in BETA. Heyy Guys, I just got a $829.99 iPåd2 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.
