First Samsung Nexus Prime live photo and video surface

07 October, 2011

As the day of the Samsung-Google 'Unpacked' event draws closer, the Nexus Prime leaks are coming in thick and fast. After being treated to some specifications of the device yesterday, today we have managed to find something even more impressive.

Yes, what you see on the left could very well be the actual Nexus Prime that will be announced on October 11. We know, it looks a lot like the current Nexus S, down to the size of the device, but look closer and you will see minor differences, such as the positioning of the proximity and display brightness sensors on the top, which differ from those on the Nexus S.

Also, the plastic border around the display looks smaller on this device than on the Nexus S. And of course, no capacitive buttons below the display, replaced by on-screen buttons in Ice Cream Sandwich.

Then there's was the hands-on video, which was looking pretty real and had us almost perfectly sure that it was indeed the Samsung Nexus Prime as its star. If that thing's fake it will be among one of the most elaborate we have seen.

Anyway, we will find out if this is real or not soon enough. The Nexus Prime official announcement is just four days away now.

We were also wondering if the rumors that there are to be two versions of the Nexus Prime actually turn out to be true. With the Verizon exclusivity in the US seeming pretty probable at this point, for Samsung and Google to release another, global, version of the phone seems highly likely too. The full details on the matter however, we'll find out soon enough.

Thanks to everyone, who sent this in!
