    The Samsung GT-I9250, rumored to be the upcoming Google Nexus Prime, was spotted appearing on Samsung’s official support page.

    A tipster pointed out the page to AndroidGuys and was able to provide a screenshot.

    Assuming authenticity of the tip, the presence of the GT-I9250 on Samsung’s support site practically confirms the existence of the GT-I9250. Such confirmation will bring us one step closer to knowing more about whether it is or is not the Google Nexus Prime rumored to be running out of Samsung’s stables in October.

    Handset model GT-I9250 appeared on a leaked list of upcoming Samsung devices and was shown on the list as the only device bearing Google’s upcoming Android 2.4/4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). The mention of ICS for the said handset has sparked speculation about the handset’s being the Nexus Prime.

    According to the leaked list, we can expect the following specs for the Samsung GT-I9250, which is expected to arrive somewhere between November 28 and December 4:

    • Android 2.4/4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
    • dual-core processor
    • 4.65-inch (1280×720) Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen
    • 5-megapixel camera

    Samsung, however, pronounced the list as inaccurate, though Samsung didn’t specify or imply whether the list was partly or totally inaccurate.

    Another device, the Samsung I515, has also recently laid claim to the Google Nexus Prime fame. The latest reports say that the Samsung I515 will be renamed the Samsung DROID Prime when it reaches Verizon Wireless, which is where it is rumored to be heading. Rumored specs for the device have been scarce, if any, but it is safe to presume that the device will tug along high-end components and features.

    Whichever of the two–and if ever one of the two–will turn out to be the real Nexus Prime from Samsung, we’ll know in the coming days.

    How much, do you think, would that doggy in the window be?

      If the Prime is on Verizon with LTE, it will be the first phone to fully justify their $300 price tag for 4G phones.

        How can you say that having not seen any pictures from it? 5 MP is more than enough for very good pictures. 1280×720 resolution is just under 1 MP, and 1920×1080 (full HD) is just over 2.
