Capisce? No? Let me explain. Remember the Nexus S? Well the specs of that device were almost a carbon copy of the Galaxy S plus a few other addition that made it ‘stand out’ as a Nexus device: NFC, Curved Display, ‘Nexus’ name.
Now not too long ago Samsung launched the Galaxy S II HD LTE (what a mouthful) in South Korea and going by the specs on that bad boy, I think it might be to the Nexus Prime what the Galaxy S was to the Nexus S. You following now?
The Galaxy S II HD LTE has the following specs that line up with the Nexus Prime rumours:
- 4.65-inch 1280×720 Super AMOLED HD Display — so will the Nexus Prime, apparently
- 1.5GHz Dual-Core CPU — so will the Nexus Prime, apparently
- HSPA+, CDMA and LTE radios — so will the Nexus Prime, apparently
- 9.5mm in thickness — so will the Nexus Prime, apparently
If that trend continues, we can expect the Nexus Prime to have a battery of at least 1850mAh, 8MP rear and 2MP front Cameras, and a bucket-load of win. Furthermore, the front-facing camera on the Nexus Prime is on the opposite side to the Galaxy S II, but the same side as the Galaxy S II HD LTE and Galaxy S. I rest my rumour-driven case and am prepared to eat my own words.
If you’re interested in the expected dimensions of the Nexus Prime, Irwin, Matty and myself spent at least an hour comparing FCC records on multiple devices and the leak images of the Nexus Prime and came to the conclusion that the Nexus Prime will be around: 136 x 68 x 9.5 mm. The Galaxy S II HD LTE is 129.8 x 68.8 x 9.5 mm for comparison.
