Samsung has teased us a few times about the Nexus Prime which is expected to get a full debut at CTIA Enterprise. We got the invite and will be at Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2011 on October 11th with full coverage of everything going on there. Not to be outdone by today's iPhone 4S announcement, Samsung has released another teaser today in video form which possibly gives a quick glimpse of the upcoming Nexus Prime. 

Just from looking at the video, right at the 20 second mark we get a glimpse of what's quite possibly the device itself. It appears that Samsung will continue the curved front glass trend that started with the Nexus S, with a display that has an even smaller radius of curvature. There's a small trademark bulge at the bottom, three contact points possibly for a dock (just like the Nexus One used to have), and finally a power button. 

For those not following the Nexus Prime, the device is expected to arrive with Android Ice Cream Sandwich and be powered by a 1.5 GHz OMAP 4460 SoC.

    I'm completely sold on it IF this thing actually comes with the 1280x720 display there's been talk about.

    My Nexus S is serving me well but considering how much time I spend surfing the net on it the higher resolution display will make a world of difference.

    Higher resolution would be nice, I have a Nexus S too. 1280x720 would require a monster of a GPU to push that though, maybe something like the MP2 in the iphone 4S, or a Mali 400. Reply

    It has an OMAP 4460 SoC, which uses a PowerVR SGX540 GPU, which is pretty decent. Combined with the 1.5GHz clock It should be ok for 1280x720, as the lesser Tegra 2 tablets can handle that res (just about). Reply

    I would be down IF its SAMOLED+, as opposed to the SAMOLED pentile. I have a Droid Chage which is Verizons only SAMOLED+ device in the States. I have a feeling its going to be pentile, and then I won't have buyer's remorse about my Charge. One very interesting feature is going to be the audio hub. The Droid Charge's DAC is seriously the only way to go, especially with Voodoo Sound.
    Time will tell. The new iPhone is pretty disappointing (to me anyway) so I am not going to get my hopes up on the Prime.

    I seriously doubt the Prime will use a pentile subpixel layout. My guess is the screen will be a 4 or 4.3" WVGA SAMOLED+ panel.

    It would be pretty neat if it is a 1280x720 panel.

    It also would be ridiculous overkill. 960x540 is insane enough. Reply

    From the rumors/speculation threads I've read, it seems as if the only SAMOLED technology that Samsung offers at HD resolutions is a Pentile matrix. The guys on XDA are convinced that at such a high resolution, the pentile matrix subpixel layout will not be as discernible as it is on lower resolutions. I guess we'll find out. Reply

    It could very well be the same phone they just released in the Korean market. It only shows a superamoled screen unfortunately.

    Apparently, T-Mobile and Walmart are teaming up to release a 30 dollar plan where you get 5GB of "4G" data (edge afterwards), unlimited texting, and 100 minutes (yes, only 100 - overage is 10c per minute) on October 16th.

    If this phone is GSM on TMobile... (especially if it's a 42mbps phone...) then that will be the biggest win ever. EVER.

    Unless you like to actually make calls.
