Ahead of its October 11 media event, Samsung today an official look at its Nexus Prime smartphone. A YouTube video posted on company’s channel describing things that ”just go” together, an obvious allusion to the next generation of the Android OS, dubbed ”Ice Cream Sandwich” and expected to appear first on the Nexus Prime.
The Samsung video then shows a profile view of a smartphone, presumably the Prime, revealing first that the phone will feature the same curved display as the Nexus S, dubbed a Contour Display by Google.
The video ends by teasing the company’s Unpacked event, to be held October 11 in San Diego. The Nexus Prime and Android Ice Cream Sandwich are both expected to be launched at the event.
Also, GSMArena reporting of the first unofficial look at Google’s next flagship phone via a photo purportedly showing a Prime in debug mode. The specification on the photo said that the phone has a 1280×720 Super AMOLED HD display on a 4.6″ screen, and a pixel density of about 320 ppi, just short of the iPhone 4 and 4S on 326 ppi. The leaked photo also reveals the Prime will apparently lack hardware keys on the front, instead opting for software rendered keys.
Previous leaks and rumours have also stated the Prime will be packing a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB RAM, 1 MP front and 8 MP rear cameras, 4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and Near Field Communication, as already featured on the Nexus S and Nexus S 4G. In any case, we have less than a week until the truth is revealed.
Here is Samsung’s teaser video:
