First Google Nexus Prime photo seemingly shows up, suggests 4.6 inch HD screen
Expected to be officially announced sometime later this month, the long-rumored Google Nexus Prime has seemingly appeared in a leaked photo for the very first time.
Unfortunately, the photo doesn’t show the full smartphone, but only nearly half of it. Even so, we can see that the Nexus Prime has a 320 ppi density, which, at a 1280 x 720 resolution, means the display size is 4.6 inches.
GSM Arena implies that the 1184 x 720 resolution visible on the display is just the screen’s active area, the rest of the 96 pixels being reserved for the notification bar. And, well, that does make sense.
The Nexus Prime will likely be Samsung’s third smartphone to feature a 1280 x 720 display, after the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy S II HD LTE. It should also be the world’s first device to run Android Ice Cream Sandwich.
As previously reported, the Nexus Prime could be first released in the US by Verizon Wireless, which may call the smartphone “Droid Prime.” More details as we get them.
