Samsung Teases and Briefly Shows Off the Galaxy Nexus Ahead of CTIA Event

Hello there beautiful phone.  In a video released tonight by Samsung, the Galaxy Nexus aka Nexus Prime aka mystery Ice Cream Sandwich device was teased as the next “BIG” thing to hit the tech world. Not that any of us were assuming we would see anything besides the next Nexus at their “Google Episode” CTIA event, but we weren’t expecting to see a tease this massive at this moment.

The timing sure couldn’t have been better though.  With the iPhone 4S getting crushed by media across the globe, it looks like Google and Samsung played this one perfectly.  


Did anyone else just fall in love?

Cheers ineff and everyone else!

    If that indeed is the next Nexus i hope it is not that curved. Doesn’t seem like it would feel nice while holding it.

      What are the benefits of a curved screen anyways? Although I like the design so far!

    I feel like Apple should have done a teaser. Really hype up what was gonna be in the announcement. Instead I sat there reading the live blog almost yawning at what they were announcing.

    Looks thicker and more curvy than I had imagined. I guess they did eventually go for a more Nexus S look than the Galaxy S II square-ish look. Oh well. It could look like crap for all I care. If it’s got the specs and the functionality to back it up… who cares!

  • Bionic

    Anyone worrying that this phone wont be on verizon, you need to calm down.  Remember, Verizon passed on the GS2 becuase basically they will be first to get this phone.  Is it public knowledge?  No, but I have my sources.

    Verizon gets this phone first and the other carriers get it a couple weeks later if not a month later.

    Wow, I heard that the screen itself would have a curve to it, but the entire phone?  Thats kinda cool.

      Never a reason to leave android

      • Apple’s platform has the stability and quality apps that Android has lacked.  Not to mention, the typing is much better on Apple products for whatever reason.  But as I have matured as a mobile device user, and with the introduction of tablets, I find myself using Apps on my phone less and less and only relying on a core set of apps which Google provides most of very well.  The other apps are really for my kid at this point.  Which is important, but it opens back up the world of Android which has hardware options Apple fails to provide at this point.

        • Anonymous

          I think iOS is the lacking factor of the iPhone. The hardware? Very very nice… that camera makes me come.

        • apple fans (nothing personal) are constantly stating this apps apps apps thing.
          can you please tell us what app (and what it does) that ios has and i bet we can find the same or equivelent app on android. i know there are some games that ios has but there are also games that android has that apple doesnt so just talking productivity apps.

          • DaVinci for iPhone.  It is a real estate appraisal note and sketching software.  It has been available for a long time on iOS, with different versions for iPhone and iPad.  A couple of months ago it was introduced for Android, but without the sketcher (so far) so it is pointless.  I have been using CNBC Realtime – same thing, dummied down version on Android – no premarket data and lots of other stuff.  Improved only recently, but still inferior.  Talkatone – you can use many Google Voice accounts and phone numbers ring into your iPhone over WiFi and 3G.  Not available on Android.  And all the SIP stuff sucks on Android, not a comparison.  Tons and tons of children’s books and games that run like sh*t on Android because they are poor ports (typical of Android).  Photo editing apps like Filterstorm on iOS (2 versions – iPhone and iPad) – really spectacular editing not available on Android.  Adobe just announced Photoshop Touch which will be a rival on Android.  I have owned 5 different Verizon Android phones and 1 on T-Mobile, 3 different Android tablets, several iPhones, and both iPads.  I am not speaking from a place of ignorance by saying that the apps are far FAR superior on iOS.  However, the core apps a person needs are better on Android, network speed is better on Android/Verizon, and now – hardware features blow the iPhone away, with the exception of the camera.  iPhone still looks cooler, but that is opinion.  That is not to say that there aren’t some Apps that are better on Android either.  I love love love Craigsnotifica on Android – best way to buy used tech stuff cheap!

  • Sean333

    WOW.. beautiful design. Deff my next phone. My youngest has an upgrade that she’ll never hear about… (walks away whistling)
    And to all those saying “TOO BIGG!!!”.. you have to keep in mind the screen may be bigger but it won’t have hard buttons or touch buttons.. they’ll be on screen.. and from thew rumors I’ve heard Sammie has epanded the screen to accomidate the buttons without the added size to the phone… I’m thinking it’ll be about the same size as the DroidX, X2, Charge.. the “usable” screen area is still only gonna be around 4-4.2 inches because of the on screen buttons

    • but the thing is the buttons will diapear for movies or gaming and apps, so while the home screen will lose some realestate to the butoons the whole screen will be available when you dont need them.

    Assuming this is vanilla on Verizon the only way they can screw it up is with a ridiculous price tag.  The hype and excitement might get me to spend up to $300, but I can’t imagine spending more.

    • Bionic

      My friend does marketing for Verizon and she said $300 is the top price for any phone for the foreseable future.  

  • I’ve already got my money pulled out of the bank and holding on to it for this puppy. Time to replace my OG Droid.

  • GotSka81

    What I want to know is what those three metal contacts are on the side of the phone?  Also, look at the shape of the phone vs the placement of the power button…I assumed the large hump is the camera, but it looks like that’s the bottom of the phone if samsung is following they’re regular side placement for the power button.

  • I have this horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach that this thing will never show it’s face on Verizon.  I have no idea why, and it’ll probably hit Verizon just like it’s been rumored to all along.  But this phone on Verizon just seems to good to be true and Verizon, in the past, has demonstrated that it doesn’t give a crap about what its customers want and this would be a huge step toward changing that.  I hope to see it on Verizon, but I’m not getting my hopes up.  I wonder if they’ll even announce carrier support next week, I assume they would right?

    • Bionic

      Your totally wrong.  verizon passed on the GS2 becuase of the very fact that they are gonne be first to get this phone.  Yes it will be on other carriers but Verizon gets this first.  

      • I know, I know.  That’s supposed to be the case and it probably will be, but until it’s 100% confirmed by Samsung, I am trying not to get my hopes up.

      I had the same concern about the power button. The location of the power button on this phone leads me to believe that I won’t be able to turn off the screen after I’ve put the phone in the charging dock

  • EC8CH

    Love how they play up the “BIG” thing.

    Seriously… *pple’s biggest mistake is going to be not increasing the size of their screen.  The i*hone is going to look puny next to all these Android devices and people will pass on it for that reason alone.

    • Anonymous

      not to mention that it lacks 4G/LTE….and a lot of the isheeps think the the i*hone is 4G just because its a the 4th generation….lol

    • Dear Android user,

      Here at Apple we believe that a phone can get too big. This is why after doing exhaustive research using statictal data, surveys, and testing out the as*, we decided 3.5″ is the perfect size for a touch screen device. You simply do not NEED a screen bigger than that, and if you buy one anyways its just not as good as the iPhone… because its just not! So just buy the iPhone, you know you want to.

      Mind Control!!

      Tim Cook

    You know I saw this on another blog and on the Unpacked app and at first, the curve did look a little extreme, but the more I watch it and look at the picture, I realize that it’s not that much.  It looks more extreme because of the lighting I think.

    As thin as this looks, I think this will be my next phone if it’s coming to Verizon.  My mom will get my Thunderbolt and I’ll be using her upgrade for this phone.  Ah the advantages of being the owner of the account.

    If there was a time for another company to capitalize on an Apple goof up, this is it. Let’s see if Samsung knows how to handle this and appeal to a non-techie mainstream audience.

    • EC8CH

      One of the big problems with past Nexus device’s is that they were barely advertised in the mainstream media at all.  With the less than impressive i*hone announcement, if Samsung and Google put some ad money behind this thing and make it available across multiple carriers (hello Verizon), I think you’ll see some impressive sales numbers on this one.

    An afterthought…Since Cyanogen was hired by Samsung, does that mean he may have had a hand in this phone? I know ICS is Google developed, but with Cyanogen on-board with Samsung, everything about the “Nexus Prime” could be amazing. Just thinking.

    • Jake

      Cyanogen is one of several folks working for Samsung. The story of his hiring got a lot of buzz, but he clarified that he’s not in a high position there or anything special. He also pointed out that CyanogenMod is also a group project, started by him, but he shouldn’t get credit for its awesomeness. I’m not meaning to dis the guy, just putting things in perspective like he did. Besides, this is a pure Google phone, so he wouldn’t have a hand in that.

  • derek connolly

    The best thing about this phone, other than the fact that it will be my next phone, is that there is so much interest in it. Meaning, every developer will get it making it like the OG droid, it will be developed on for years to come. I’m definitely ready for the next game changer

      I usually carry in my back pocket so it looks like a perfect fit.

      And it’s any nexus > any iPhone always…

    • Crunchybutternut

      It’s not sooo curved. Plus, if in a front pocket, your leg has curve to it as well so it will probably be a better fit than a flat 4.5″ screened phone.

      • Jake

        The blue line above the phone exaggerates the curve of the phone. If you look on the ends of the phone, you’ll see there’s space between the blue line and the phone earpiece & microhpone.

    It looks like a Droid X and a Nexus S combined and created awesome.

    Now is that the image of the nexus s peeling off and around the nexus prime. the chin disappears slowly from left to right. it seems like the nexus s peels away and then for a brief second….boom there is the razor thin profile of the new nexus prime.

  • DT

    Which side is the top?  I assume the right due to the power button?  Meaning the bottom will be the larger side, which would be unlike the other non-uniform-shaped android phones out there.  

    I like it.  this is obviously a large departure from the entire previous generation of smartphones from any manufacturer.

    • Jake

      I hope the thick part is the top so it feels more balanced. If the thick hump acts as a weight, it could make the phone more likely to be dropped.

    If that is the phone in the picture, I’m not liking that huge curve it has in it. The phone seems way to skinny to have that shape, hope it’s not easily breakable.

    Here is a better image of the phone; same view though.

      or maybe there is a chin after looking at your photo.

      The image isn’t loading, I only get a 26 x 35 pixel image. Repost?

    Those pins mean a magnetic charger like the pre?

    • EC8CH

      Nexus One had same pins but on the bottom when in portrait orientation.

      Probably a docking system as well

  • david

    that video didn’t even mention the nexus prime.. what is there to be excited about?

  • timmy13

    All I can think of is this phone now and the phrase “that’s what she said”.

  • Aaron Sauer

    Yeah. This will be my next phone. Apple has some serious competition. The game has changed.

    • I’m thinking it will be mine as well.

      • Im going to be pissed if Verizon gives us “Coming Soon” BS next tuesday. Phil Nickinson say *Unconfirmed* OCT 27th. Please god.

        • Crunchybutternut

          I’m ticked that Sprint just eliminated my 1 year upgrade that I was eligible for. Now I will have to wait 5 more months to upgrade! X-(

            its gonna be for verizon, pretty much guaranteed. Though, I feel kind of bad that I got the Droid BIonic, because of this unicorn. Though, I made a choice that I will have to live with. Most people spent 280 to 300 on the bionic, where as I spent 200 from letstalk.

          • If this gets released on VZW (still a big rumor) then I’ll be selling my Bionic. As long as the Prime doesn’t have Touchwiz on it. Calling it the Galaxy Nexus instead of Nexus Prime worries me a bit.

          • EC8CH

            There is no way in hell Google would debut the latest version of Android with a skin on it.

          • Anonymous

            That’s my expectation as well.  Unless it’s coming to the other carriers and Verizon at the same time and the other carriers are vanilla and Verizon’s isn’t.  Then I might give up reading Android tech blogs all together.

            I was worried too, but not so much anymore. I think the “Galaxy” is appropriate given that this will be a Verizon exclusive for a bit and the fact that they opted out of the Galaxy S2. The fact that it’s the first ICS phone speaks pretty heavily that it will be pure Android (no way will Google introduce the next OS with a skin). Also, having Nexus still in the title reinforces that. There’s not going to be a skinned Nexus, IMO.

            My sister is pissed too.  She is/was a premier customer and she is not happy!

            You sure about that?  I thought you had until Dec 2012 to upgrade if you were one of their preferred gold members.  Go complain, see what you can get 🙂

          accoriding to my info from my rep they said november for release

          • Anonymous

            Ill be surprised if it comes before the dead end of November. We need to remember, this is Verizon we’re talking about here. Not trying to be negative, just realistic. But cheers to a late October release!

          • Anonymous

            Well Verizon is supporting Samsung over apple remember so maybe they release this sooner since the 4s won’t be as demanded as the i4 was

          • Anonymous

            Verizon has explicitly stated they want devices that will further their LTE network. This will, the iPhones won’t. I expect to see HEAVY promotion and priority given by Verizon. Let’s just hope the quality of the promotion is better than their previous devices (Bionic, I’m looking at you…).

          • Anonymous

            That’s why I said I could see a late Oct release and not give the whole month to the iPhone

        • They will.  This thing will not be available for purchase for at least another 3 weeks.

        • Anonymous

          It’s Verizon.  Of course it’ll say coming “Late 2011”. 🙁

          shut up it will be coming december 13.

    • Anonymous

      It will be mine too. i literally had my jaw drop when i saw it. At last my search for a worthy successor to my OG Droid has ended.

      • What the Frack?!

        I’m still rockin the classic OG Droid too! I’ve passed two phones and I think my wait is coming to an end as well.

        • Anonymous

          I am still rocking the OG droid and was thinking about the Bionic, but this phone looks really really good.

      • Anonymous

        And both times it was Google driving the bus,  Moto/Verizon hasn’t had the same success since OG Droid, just a bunch of follow up branded of the coat tails of the OG with “Droid” and some pretty good devices like the DX but nothing like the OG and Google  lead that charge to the fight. 

        I expect the same hopefully with the Nexus Prime  

    • Droidluva4life

      There is no competition. Apple has lost.

      • TheAndroid1

        Just like they’ve lost after the 3GS, iPhone 4, ios4, ios5, iPad 2, etc.

        They need to give this thing a ton of promotion unstead of letting it just hoping people will find it like the past nexus.

        Even then, apple still has too many people buying an iPhone because it is an iPhone.

        • Anonymous

          I agree.  One small difference this time though.  Verizon.  Is what it is…

        • I “liked” this comment not because I like Apple, but because you’re correct.  Sheep follow their shepherd, iFans buy iPhones.

        Moto will win within android 🙂

        • Irish22022

          moto lost me with this POS droidx2.  I loved the droid x.  had no interest in upgrading until next year.  Then I broke the phone and the insurance company gave me an x2.  bummer.  looking at this nexus though. real hard.

          • Anonymous

            I love all times of devices if they worth it. If the nexus has a good build quality and the portrait pictures are not saturated, I’ll get it

            I love all devices if they worth it. If the nexus has a good build quality and the portrait pictures are not saturated, i will get it as well. I will give my droidx2 to my brother and rock the bionic and the nexus.

    • For many iFans, the game will never change.  The sheep will buy the iPhone no matter what anyone else puts out there.

        I know several people waiting for the iPhone and I think they are crazy. They fall for the iMania. I wanted an iPhone but was unwilling to leave Verizon because I have too many phones on contract and they provide the best service in my area. Now Verizon has the fastest 4G and is beating Apple with Android. No wonder Apple is suing everyone. They’ve run out of ideas stolen from others and everyone is keeping their inventions more secure so Apple simply has nothing else to do but sue.

      Finally I’ll be able to get rid off of my half baked Tbolt for some pure Android Goodness.

      • angermeans

        I second that. I love HTC phones but the bolt has been nothing but a huge disappointment. Nexus here I come and who knows maybe this phone will take over as the greatest phone ever built in my mind as of now the original nexus is still the best phone

      Competition? They are losing ground everyday to Android already, and with the bad word of mouth from sewing everybody for looking at them they are digging there own grave. BUT as far as this phone goes, I WILL HAVE ONE!! 😀
