Samsung Nexus Prime specs confirmed, Verizon exclusive?

BGR claims to have got their hands on Nexus Prime specs from a “trusted source”. While many of the specs including a 4.65-inch 1280 x 720p Super AMOLED display seem accurate, we are on the fence about others such as the 5-megapixel backside camera. The report also mentions curved glass for the display, which was shown in the latest teaser video (image above), and a 9mm thin design. It also seems to confirm the device will be branded “Samsung Galaxy Nexus”, rather than its Nexus Prime codename, and be landing exclusively on Verizon in the U.S.

Some of the specs mirror those rumored in the past including a TI OMAP 4460 dual-core 1.2GHz Cortex A9 processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, HSPA/LTE capabilities, NFC support, and a 1,750 mAh battery.

The report also claims to have confirmed the device will be a “pure Google experience” and not run TouchWiz or any third-party customizations on top of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) when it’s unveiled next week.

We’ll of course be bringing you the latest announcements from Samsung’s Mobile Unpacked event on October 11th.
