Samsung Galaxy Nexus (not Droid Prime) with LTE shows up in Verizon’s system

If this newly leaked screenshot is to be believed, Verizon’s version of the Google Nexus Prime will not be called Droid Prime, as previously rumored, but Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

According to Droid-life, the image below is from Verizon’s Device Management system. And, well, we can clearly see the Samsung Galaxy Nexus listed as a 4G LTE device. It also looks like it won’t be a global phone. There’s still no word on pricing, but since we’re talking about Verizon’s next flagship LTE handset, $299 on contract is a good guess.

Samsung and Google have scheduled an Ice Cream Sandwich event for next week, on October 19, when the Nexus Prime should be finally announced. Most likely, official details about Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus will also be unveiled then. Verizon could launch the new handset befoer the end of this month. But, well, let’s see what happens next week first.

    I consider myself to be creative. Because of that, I like to have the ‘tools’ I can use to express myself. In the case of a smartphone, I choose Android because any limitations are my own. If something’s not working the way I want it to, I can configure it differently, get a different app, or install a customer ROM. That’s why it looks like the upcoming Nexus will likely be my upgrade phone soon. For those who like a “controlled environment”, the iPhone wins.

    True. I guess that’s why many manufacturers slap their overlays on top of Android but that should be the users choice. Wouldn’t that be an interesting idea? Imagine if someone who wants more of a “walled” experienced can ask for the manufacturer’s overlay on their handset. Then a technician in the back can take a few minutes to install it. Then, the rest of us can just buy a handset with stock Android OS in it. Simple!

    Bigdaddykane, I believe the problem is that now Apple is suing companies that are surpassing their technology….

    I fear that by this not using the Nexus title, Verizon will try to poison it with it’s proprietary crap apps.

    AT&T has 4g “up and running”? Where? No, they don’t. It’s in a small enough number of cities that you can count on one hand. VZW is actually in place in small markets like Tulsa. AT&T’s 4g claims will ring as true as 3g service in SF or midtown. AT&T’s all talk, no substance.

    You are forgetting another Key factor with your statement. Prime will be a 4G LTE device. The 4S isn’t so you won’t have to worry about the whole $100 increase in price because of the 4G radio. Trust me i suspect when the iphone 5 comes out it will be 4G and it will be 299 off the bat.

    Well the Samsung SII HD is LTE, GSM, and CDMA. I do not know the cost, but around $700 without contract. I guess I will sit and wait awhile and see what comes out before decide, which phone to get. Prime HTC, or wait for Samsung S III, if it comes to Verizon. But I do want a world phone. Going to UK thanksgiving, then Korea, Thailand, and Australia. Dec and January. It would be nice.
