The Samsung Galaxy Nexus Prime would be the very first phone to sport the newest Android OS 4.0 the Ice Cream Sandwich (and they're talking about Jellybean already). It would also be a slightly curved phone to the touch. Not your typical bar phone. It's also comes slightly "fatter" than the Galaxy S2, which is still pretty remarkable, considering this is a newer and more powerful smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Prime Specs**
According to our source, the device codenamed Nexus Prime is going to ship with Samsung's own chipset, with a blazingly fast dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. But wait, there's more.*GSM Arena leak
On that chipset will also reside a powerful dual-core GPU from Imagination. We suspect it's going to be the PowerVR SGX543MP2, or in other words, the same GPU found in the iPad 2 (and quite probably on the iPhone 4S as well).
On the back, instead of the 5-megapixel snapper, our source claims, there's an 8-megapixel, full 1080p HD video-shooting camera with some sort of an improved sensor. As for the battery, expect a 2050mAh one (do we hear a whoa?), which should be good for a couple of days use without charging.
The Nexus Prime will also be LTE-enabled, but the most interesting part is that it would probably boast a dual-mode GSM/CDMA radio, just like the Apple iPhone 4S.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Prime Availability
Since the Samsung Galaxy Nexus Prime isn't out yet, this post is just waiting to be updated. It will be, on Tuesday the 11th.
Anyway, this is me saying that you should hold your horses before you go buy that Apple iPhone 4S and wait for the grand unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus Prime instead. But if you're an iFan, well, I understand. Droid fans are hyped for sure though.
'Till my next installment.
