Samsung Nexus Prime breaks cover

It might not be the complete picture, but this is the next Google phone, going by the name of the Samsung Nexus Prime.

As we previously mentioned, the latest Android from Samsung is likely to launch at a press event this coming Tuesday. Going by the name of 'Unpacked 2011', the event in San Diego is subtitled the 'Google Episode', so not really a lot of ambiguity there. What is surprising is how 'under wraps' the latest Google handset has been...until now that is.

According to GSM Arena, this is the first proper shot of the handset and while it doesn't give the full game away, it gives an interesting insight. Samsung has recently started running a teaser 'something BIG is coming' campaign, with this shot certainly backing that up.

It does indeed look on the large side, possibly with the rumoured 4.6-inch screen. What is now confirmed is the Super AMOLED screen, with a 720p resolution and a pixel density of over 320 ppi. That's seriously sharp. The image also confirms no hardware keys on the front of the handset, which is a nod to the new Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android being present - that OS isn't going to require them.

Aside from that, we're expecting a dual-core 1.5GHz chip with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a phone said to be 'blazingly fast'. All of which should be confirmed in a matter of days, ready to battle with the iPhone 4S over the festive period.
