The Nexus line of phones have been widely likened when it comes to the wealth of speculation, rumors, and general obsession over the upcoming release of those devices. In an attempt to squast the rumors of a leaked Nexus Prime firmware build, Samsung's legal department appears to have accidentally confirmed that the device is in fact the Nexus Prime and is, in fact, being made by Samsung.

"It has come to our attention that you are wrongfully in possession of, and intend to release or otherwise publicly disclose without Samsung's consent, firmware for the Nexus Prime," a letter obtained by Geek.com said. "The Nexus Prime firmware is the exclusive property of Samsung and/or its partners, suppliers and affiliates." The letter is signed by Samsung's General Counsel, Bryan Hopkins, though the source of the letter has removed the name. An image of the purported letter follows below: (click to zoom past)

A Nexus Prime by Samsung has a lot of possibilities -- the Nexus Prime is expected to be Google's first Ice Cream Sandwich device, and rumors have suggested that it will launch on Verizon Wireless in October.

It will a 4.3-inch, or a 4.5-inch one? and will use Samsung's new Super Clear LCD or will have a Super AMOLED HD? It will either run one of Samsung's Exynos dual core processors, or have Samsung and Google partnered up with nVidia?
