More rumoured Nexus Prime specifications surface

The folks over at GSMArena have published a story based on some tips they have received from what they call a “well informed source from the industry” from the story we get the following rumoured specs :

4.65″ Super AMOLED screen with HD resolution(1280×720??)
Screen is curved just like the Nexus S
8.8mm thick (0.3mm thicker than SGS II)
Metal Chasis

The source also advised the name may actually be the Samsung Galaxy Nexus rather than the Nexus Prime, I`m not too sure about the name rumour as it would align itself more with Samsung than as Google`s Flagship Nexus so count me for one as sceptical on that one.

The source also advised that the launch date for the Nexus Prime will be at the end of October, which marries up quite well to Eric Schmidt`s comments from the Dreamforce conference yesterday where he advised that Ice-Cream Sandwich is due October/November.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress and IFA.

    Hearing that it might have a Metal Chasis makes me feel better about recently buying a Samsung Galaxy SII, I have no problem with metal chasis’ phones in general but I’ve recently become a fan of the lighter plastic built phones.

    If these specs are right then I think I may have to update from my current phone…  Here’s hoping that the Super Amoled screen is not pentile, but I think it will be
