GSMArena has just posted an image of what they claim is the first spy shot of the Samsung Nexus Prime, the next-gen pure Google phone expected to be unveiled at Mobile Unpacked on October 11th.

What we learn from the image confirms some of the rumored specs we’ve already told you about. You can see the 720p resolution and 320 ppi of the 4.6-inch Super AMOLED display. Even looking at the text in this blurry spy shot you can get a feel for the quality of the display. As GSMArena puts it, the letters look almost as if they are “printed on paper”.

We can also confirm the front of the device doesn’t appear to have any physical, hardware buttons, rather three onscreen buttons mimicking the look of typical Android hardware buttons. This is of course due to Ice Cream Sandwich, which doesn’t require physical buttons for navigation.

We’ll be bringing you all the official updates on October 11 when Samsung and Google take the stage at the Mobile Unpacked conference.
