Samsung Galaxy Nexus Prime teaser

Yesterday morning, Samsung offered up a sneak peek at a device that many believe to be the Nexus Prime in its teaser for the October 11th "Google Episode" of its Unpacked event. If that wasn't enough to satiate your hunger for all things Prime, though, today we've got a possible list of specs for the next Nexus that you may want to check out. According to a "trusted source" speaking with BGR, the device will be known as Samsung Galaxy Nexus and will feature the following specs:

  • 4.65-inch 1280x720 Super AMOLED HD display with curved glass
  • 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4460 processor
  • 5-megapixel camera
  • 1080p HD video capture
  • 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB built-in storage
  • NFC
  • 1,750mAh battery
  • LTE/HSPA support depending on carrier
  • 9mm thick
  • Android Ice Cream Sandwich (sans any carrier or manufacturer-installed apps or UI changes, which makes sense since this is a Nexus device)

As for which carrier you'll be able to snag a Galaxy Nexus on, BGR's source believes that the device will be a Verizon exclusive here in the U.S. There's no mention of a possible launch date in the report, but the good news is that we're just five short days away from seeing Samsung and Google take the stage at CTIA to give us the scoop on the new Nexus. When they do, you can bet that PhoneDog will there live, bringing you all of the piping hot details fresh out of the oven. What do you all think of these rumored Galaxy Nexus specs? Do they live up to your expectations?
